It was an unprecedented welcome for YSR Congress party president and chief minister-designate of Andhra Pradesh Y S Jaganmohan Reddy at Pragati Bhavan, the official residence of Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao.
KCR, along with his senior party colleagues, ministers and family members lined up at the entrance at Pragati Bhavan, as Jagan came in a convoy of vehicles.
Even as Jagan got down from the vehicle, KCR went to him, presented bouques to him and his wife Bharati and hugged him twice.
KCR personally led Jagan and wife into the house and KCR’s son K T Rama Rao also took Jagan’s hand into his hands, as they walked in.
On the other hand, KCR’s wife Shobha and KTR’s wife Shailima took Bharati inside separately and made her comfortable.
Later, the TRS chief introduced all his party leaders to him one after the other. He presented a shawl to Jagan to felicitate him and a silver Veena as a memento.
Jagan was offered a king size chair next to KCR and both of them talked to each other for quite some time.
The YSRC chief invited KCR and the TRS leaders to his swearing-in ceremony in Vijayawada and they accepted the invitation.
Perhaps, no other leader got such a rousing reception at Pragati Bhavan so far.
Even when Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav came to meet KCR, he was not given so much reception.
It was an indication to Jagan’s tremendous popularity!
