A day after state governor ESL Narasimhan landed in New Delhi for a meeting with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday, the Congress high command has summoned Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy to the national capital to find a solution to the ongoing crisis over Telangana.

Pradesh Congress Committee president Botsa Satyanarayana too has been called to New Delhi for a discussion with the party top leadership on the contentious statehood issue.

Narasimhan will meet the Prime Minister and Union home minister P Chidambaram among others and the chief minister too may meet the Prime Minister and other Union ministers on Saturday, sources said.

Both the governor and the chief minister are expected to brief the central leadership about the current situation in the state in the light of the ongoing agitation for Telangana that has crippled normal life for the last 25 days.

The agitation had often been marred by violence.

The governor is expected to submit a report to the Prime Minister on the ground situation, informed sources said.

In Delhi, Congress top brass held hectic consultations on Friday night on the statehood issue with finance minister Pranab Mukherjee holding separate meetings with the Prime Minister and Congress president Sonia Gandhi on the issue.

Chidambaram, defence minister AK Antony and health minister Ghulam Nabi Azad, who is also the Congress general secretary in-charge of the state, met Mukherjee to discuss the issue.
