Former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister late YS Rajsekhara Reddy's son Jaganmohan Reddy on Saturday met Congress President Sonia Gandhi in New Delhi.
This was Jagan's second meeting with Gandhi after his father's death and the subsequent campaign by his supporters to make him the chief minister. K V P Ramchandra Rao, who was spearheading the Jagan-for-CM campaign also accompanied him.
Jagan's wife, mother and sister were present when he met Gandhi.
Party sources said Jagan and his mother Vijayalaxmi met Gandhi to "thank" for her support during the family's hour of crisis after the death of Rajasekhara Reddy's death. Jagan, however, did not speak to the media after the meeting.
Earlier, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister K Rosaiah also met Gandhi in the morning.
On his maiden visit to the national capital after becoming chief minister, Rosaiah also met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
The meeting assumes significance in wake of Congress high command virtually announcing that Rosaiah will continue as the chief minister.
According to party sources, the high command is likely to convene the Congress Legislature Party soon to formally elect Rosaiah as its leader and to condole the death of Rajasekhara Reddy.
