The chief minister’s camp office wore a festive look on Thursday and traffic on the main road came to a halt for a while as the commuters and passerby vied with one another to have a glimpse of the folk dancers, dancing in the tunes of the music in front of the camp office.
The occasion was Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy’s birthday. He turned 52 on Thursday.
Celebrating his second birthday as the chief minister of the state, he began the day by meeting visitors from 10 a.m. to 12 noon before proceeding to the Secretariat.
Sporting a silk kurta pyjama and wearing a smile on his face, Kiran Reddy received bouquets from his cabinet colleagues, party MLAs, MPs, officials and ordinary people, who came to congratulate him at his camp office.
Speaking to Express, he said the developmental and welfare programmes carried out by his government would be continued with renewed vigour for the overall development of the state.
Kiran Reddy had more reasons to be happy than because it was his birthday.
AICC state affairs incharge Ghulam Nabi Azad, during his recent visit to the state capital, made it clear that there would be no change of guard in the state.
Kiran Kumar Reddy is now prepared to tour Mahabubnagar district.
