The chief minister will not be travelling to the national capital for the meeting with the GoM, sources in the chief minister's Office said.

The GoM, which has intensified the process for bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh, summoned Kiran Reddy for a meeting at 8 p.m. He was scheduled to leave at 4 p.m.

However, the reasons for the chief minister postponing his visit were not clear.

The political circles were abuzz with speculations that Kiran reddy, who is opposed to the centre's decision to bifurcate the state, is deliberately avoiding the meeting.

According to the reports from Delhi, the GoM has now asked the chief minister to be available for the meeting on Nov 18, when the ministerial group would be holding consultations with the central ministers from the state.
