However, speaking to media persons later, Raghuveera Reddy and Anam described the meeting as informal.

Earlier, former ministers Vatti Vasanth Kumar and Danam Nagender too called on the Governor separately.

According to sources, the Congress leaders including Botsa, have assured the Congress High Command that they would abide by its decision and asked it nominate a new leader for the Chief Minister’s post.

Botsa was expected to make a formal announcement in this regard. However, a press conference which he proposed to address at 4 PM, was postponed at the last minute. He is likely to come out with a statement on this issue on Friday.  INN
