There were reports in a section of media that Chiranjeevi might replace N Kiran Kumar Reddy as chief minister after the by-elections and that it was precisely the reason why AICC observer Vayalar Ravi had gone to his residence for the breakfast meeting recently.
However, Chiranjeevi has got the hints from the statements of other observer Krishnamurthy and Ghulam Nabi Azad that there was no such move by the high command. Even if Kiran has to replaced, it would be done by a Telangana leader.
“I have no hopes of becoming the CM and I am happy with what I am. And as far as my information goes, Kiran will continue to be the chief minister even after the by-elections, as the Congress party is going to win considerable number of seats. And there are absolutely no differences among the party leaders,” he said.
