Andhra Governor invites Reddy to form Govt
Barnala has invited the newly-elected CLP leader Rajasekhara Reddy to form the next Govt.
Andhra Pradesh Governor Surjeet Singh Barnala on Wednesday invited the newly-elected Congress Legislature Party leader YS Rajasekhara Reddy to form the next Government.
"I have been informed about your unanimous election as leader of the Congress Legislature Party. I congratulate you and hereby invite you to form the Government," the Governor said in a letter to Reddy.
Earlier, a delegation of Congress leaders, led by former MP P Upendra, met Barnala at Raj Bhavan and handed over a letter by APCC President D Srinivas informing the Governor about the election of Reddy as CLP leader.
Reddy, who spearheaded the party's campaign and steered it to a spectacular comeback to power, will be sworn in as Chief Minister on May 14.
He is scheduled to call on the Governor later in the evening.
