Kiran Meets Shah: What's Up?

It has been long time since one had heard of Nallari Kiran Kumar Reddy, the last Chief Minister of erstwhile integrated Andhra Pradesh.

Except occasional appearances at public functions and marriages, he is hardly seen anywhere. It is learnt most of the times, he stays in Bengaluru, where he is learnt to have some business interests.

The latest news is that Kiran has gone to New Delhi and had a one-on-one meeting with Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah.

Naturally, it has led to speculations that he might join the BJP sooner or later. His Samaikyandhra party has lost its relevance and there is none in the party, which has become defunct now.

There were reports some time back that Kiran would be joining the BJP anytime. But, apparently, the BJP leadership kept him at bay because of its alliance with the TDP and his entry would antagonise Chandrababu Naidu. Moroever, there is no utility value for Kiran in the present day politics.

However, things have changed a lot now. The BJP is of the view that the TDP would get out of the alliance and take anti-NDA stand in the coming days. In such case, the party needs some known figures in Andhra Pradesh.

Kiran, who was the Chief Minister for nearly three years, will definitely be an asset in terms of exposing Naidu. Therefore, Shah might have entertained him now, say sources.
