Chennai (Tamil Nadu) [India], May 28 (ANI): DMK president MK Stalin will attend Andhra Pradesh chief minister-designate Jaganmohan Reddy's swearing-in ceremony scheduled to be held in Vijayawada on May 30, party sources said.
Jagan's swearing-in ceremony is expected to take place at Vijayawada's Indira Gandhi Municipal Stadium at 12.23 pm on Thursday.
Earlier, the YSRCP leader rang up his predecessor and TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu and invited him over to the event.
Jaganmohan-led YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) got an absolute majority in the 175-member Andhra Pradesh Assembly, ousting Chandrababu Naidu-led Telugu Desam Party (TDP) from power.
YSRCP won 151 seats, whereas TDP's tally fell drastically from 102 in 2014 Assembly elections to a mere 23.
In the Lok Sabha results too YSRCP managed to win 22 of the 25 parliamentary seats.
Reddy has already invited Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao to his swearing-in.
KCR has agreed to attend the ceremony at Vijaywada before leaving for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's oath-taking to be held on the same day in New Delhi. (ANI)
