At a time when political atmosphere in the state is so charged up over the Telangana issue, Union minister for tourism K Chiranjeevi called on chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy at the latter’s camp office here on Wednesday and confabulated with him apparently over the political situation in the state.

The meeting assumed political significance as Chiranjeevi met the chief minister a day after his close aide and minister Ghanta Srinivasa Rao had contradicted the claim of fellow minister Danam Nagender that statehood for the Telangana region was in the offing.

 Meanwhile, Congress MPs from Telangana _ G Vivekananda, Siricilla Rajaiah and Madhu Yashki Goud _ asked Chiranjeevi to rein in Ghanta Srinivasa Rao, his close follower.

 Speaking to reporters in Delhi, Rajaiah and Yashki said, “Chiranjeevi had said earlier that he stood for a social Telangana state.

 Now, his close aide Ghanta Srinivasa Rao is spewing venom on the Telangana issue.

 He is unequivocally opposing bifurcation of the state.

 Can Ghanta ever speak like this without the support of Chiranjeevi?” they asked.

 Yashki alleged that Rajya Sabha member KVP Ramachandra Rao was putting in all efforts to obstruct the process of formation of Telangana state.

 “KVP Ramachandra Rao is the kingpin of Seemandhra leaders who have intensified behind- the-screen efforts to stop formation of Telangana state,” he alleged
