KCR, Naidu best of pals: ESL Narasimhan

The relationship between the Chief Ministers of both the states was the best that he has ever seen.

Hyderabad: Governor E.S.L. Narasimhan on Tuesday asserted that the relationship between the Chief Ministers of TS and AP and both the governments was the best that he has ever seen. “They are very friendly. I can tell you that much. I met both of them today morning. I participated in the parade. I can tell you that it (the relationship) is really better than at any point of time. That much I can tell you with confidence and comfort,” Mr Narasimhan said.

He was reacting to a question on the absence of Chief Ministers K. Chandrasekhar Rao and N. Chandrababu Naidu at an ‘At Home’ hosted by him and his wife Vimala Narasimhan at the Raj Bhavan on the occasion of Republic Day here on Tuesday. As reporters continued to ask questions, the Governor reiterated, with the support of Mrs Narasimhan, “Today, the relationship between the two Chief Ministers and two governments is probably the best you have ever seen. You can ask them also if you want. They will verify this. Tell them that the Governor has said this. Ask them together. If you ask them separately they may say something. You fellows are mischievous,” he said in a lighter vein.

“I am custodian of two states. I told you last time it’s a fact they are absent. There is no denying it. They must have a reason. I don’t know,” he added. Several dignitaries from TS and AP, including TS Legislative Council chairman Swami Goud, Speaker Madhusudhana Chary, Deputy CM Kadiam Srihari, Chief Justice Dilip B. Bhosale, home minister Nayani Narasimha Reddy, Union minister Bandaru Dattatreya, other Cabinet ministers, IAS, IPS and other officers, AP Legislative Council chairman A. Chakrapani, ministers Devineni Uma Maheswara Rao, Ganta Srinivas Rao, K. Atchannaidu, P. Sujata, Padma awardees Ramoji Rao, Yarlagadda Prasad among others attended the function.
