KCR meets Tamilisai after 9 months!

KCR meets Tamilisai after 9 months!

After a gap of more than nine months,  Telangana Rashtra Samithi president and chief minister K Chandrasekhara Rao met state governor Dr Tamilisai Soundararajan on Tuesday. 

The occasion was the swearing in ceremony of newly appointed high court chief justice Ujjal Bhuyan. Tamilisai administered oath of office and secrecy to the new chief justice at a glittering ceremony held at Raj Bhavan.

As per the protocol, the chief minister of the state has to be present at the chief justice's swearing in ceremony. So, KCR could not afford to break the protocol and avoid attending the event.

KCR drove down to Raj Bhavan a few minutes before the ceremony. He presented a bouquet to Dr Tamilisai and exchanged pleasantries with her. Both the leaders wished each other and spent some time before moving to Darbar Hall to attend the ceremony.

Even after the event, KCR spent some time with the new chief justice and the governor in Raj Bhavan. Later, Tamilisai saw off the chief minister. 

The last time that KCR had gone to Raj Bhavan was on October 11, 2021, on the occasion of swearing in of Justice Satish Chandra Sharma as chief justice of Telangana high court. 

After that, differences cropped up between the chief minister and the governor over nomination of TRS leader Padi Kaushik Reddy as MLC under governor's quota. Tamilisai rejected his nomination on technical grounds, and it angered KCR.

Since then, the KCR government has been adopting a confrontationist stand towards the governor and has stopped extending protocol facilities to her. And Tamilisai, too, started making aggressive comments against the KCR government.

Now, after nine months, both the leaders have met at Raj Bhavan, even if it is as part of the protocol.
