Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister K. Rosaiah, after returning from Delhi, called for an emergency meeting of the Congress Legislature Party (CLP) at 6.30 p.m. here on Wednesday to discuss party affairs. AICC general secretary in-charge of Andhra Pradesh, Veerappa Moily, will attend the CLP meeting. All the 156 party MLAs, as also all the MLCs, have been directed to attend the CLP meeting without fail.
The CLP meeting had been called to seek from the legislators a reaffirmation of their loyalty and support to AICC president Sonia Gandhi who was attacked by Jagan’s Sakshi TV channel in a programme aired last week. The meeting is aimed at being a show of unity and strength and, consequently, an effort to isolate the Kadapa MP.
Sources say that two ministers loyal to Jagan may be dropped from the cabinet.
