Chiranjeevi meets Sonia Gandhi

After his Praja Rajyam Party merged with Congress in August this year, megastar-turned-politician Chiranjeevi met Congress Chief Sonia Gandhi for the first time on November 16.

"After the merger of Praja Rajyam this is the first time I met madam Sonia Gandhi. I could not meet her earlier due to her illness. No specific discussion took place. It was more of a courtesy call," said Chiranjeevi after the 30-minute meeting. He said the meeting was long over due as he "wanted to thank her".

He said Sonia was happy over his decision to join the Congress as she felt that the merger re-energised the cadres in theparty-ruled state.

When asked whether he discussed the issue of Telangana with Sonia, he saidthat afew weeks back he had met the Congress Core committee and had given his opinion on the issue there.
