New Delhi [India], May 26 (ANI): YSR Congress President and Chief Minister Designate of Andhra Pradesh Jagan Mohan Reddy met BJP general secretary Ram Madhav here on Sunday.
Reddy gifted him a shawl and a statue of Tirupati Balaji.
Earlier in the day, the YSRCP chief met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah separately. He is set to take oath as Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh on May 30.
Reddy, whose party achieved a landslide victory by winning 151 seats in the 175-member Assembly and 22 out of the 25 Lok Sabha seats in Andhra Pradesh, discussed providing outside or issue-based support to Prime Minister Modi's government, sources said.
During his election campaign, the chief minister-designate Reddy had mentioned that his party would support whosoever promises Special Category Status to Andhra Pradesh.
On Saturday, Reddy went to Hyderabad where he met Governor ESL Narasimhan and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao. The two leaders discussed the latest political developments and decided to work together for the development of Telugu states.
Party sources said Reddy invited KCR for his swearing-in ceremony to be held in Vijayawada on May 30.
The YSRCP got an absolute majority in the Assembly, ousting N Chandrababu Naidu-led TDP from power in the state.
Telugu Desam Party Chief Chandrababu Naidu submitted his resignation to Governor Narasimhan on Thursday after he lost the polls. The 14th Andhra Pradesh legislative assembly was dissolved on Saturday after a notification in this regard was issued by Narasimhan.
Narendra Modi-led NDA swept the elections and won 352 out of 542 seats in the 17th Lok Sabha elections. As per official numbers, the BJP secured 303 seats, 22 more than its 2014 figures. (ANI)
