Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister K Rosaiah on Friday met Union Home Minister P Chidambaram and apprised him of the situation in Hyderabad in the wake of recent communal clashes.
Rosaiah, who arrived in New Delhi on Thursday to participate in the meeting of the Prime Minister's core group on price rise, met Chidambaram and explained to him the law-and-order situation in the state.
"I came to meet Mr Chidambaram to apprise him of the current situation in Hyderabad which was hit by communal clashes last week. He gave me a patient hearing," he told reporters after the meeting.
Two persons were killed and over 90 sustained injuries in clashes last week over the issue of putting up religious flags.
Rosaiah said he would be in the capital again on April 14 for a meeting with the Planning Commission and would meet Congress chief Sonia Gandhi.
"I would discuss the issue of expansion of my cabinet with the Congress president when I come next week. Today, I have not discussed the issue with any one," he said.
There is widespread speculation in Andhra Pradesh that Rosaiah would expand his 34-member cabinet.
This would be the first expansion after he took over as chief minister after his predecessor Y S Rajasekhara Reddy died in a chopper crash last September.
