In the backdrop of dissident Congress MP Jaganmohan Reddy's TV channel telecasting controversial remarks against the party leadership, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister K Rosaiah on Tuesday discussed the political developments with the central leaders.
Rosaiah, who has strongly condemned the programme on the TV channel owned by Jaganmohan, is believed to have met Congress president Sonia Gandhi, but there was no confirmation about the meeting.
Sources said the chief minister met senior party leader A K Antony, who is also the chairman of the party's disciplinary committee, and Home Minister P Chidambaram.
Rosaiah is believed to have briefed Chidambaram about the latest political developments in the state like the agitation by students in Andhra-Rayalaseema regions against the postponement of sub-inspectors recruitment test and the recent trouble in Hyderabad over the same issue.
Rosaiah is also said to have taken up the issue of deleting clause 14 (f) of the Presidential Order to make Hyderabad a part of Zone-VI.
The Andhra Pradesh Assembly passed a resolution in February seeking deletion of the clause but so far the Centre has not acted on it leading to unrest in Telangana.
The recruitment of police sub-inspectors (SIs) is now linked to the deletion of the contentious clause in the Presidential Order.
