Hyderabad: Congress General Secretary Ghulam Nabi Azad on Thursday met several party leaders in Hyderabad, including some ministers of N Kiran Kumar Reddy government who were understood to have voiced their displeasure about the style of function of the Chief Minister.

Almost every leader worth the name, who met Azad separately at the Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee headquarters Gandhi Bhavan, reportedly alleged the Chief Minister was acting in a "unilateral manner".

While some went to the extent of seeking Kiran Kumar's replacement, others wanted the Congress high command to prevail upon the Chief Minister to change his manner of functioning, party sources said.

Congress, which is already going through a tough time across the state, could suffer in the next elections if things are not set right, the senior state party leaders told Azad, party sources said.

The Congress leaders also lamented that neither the Chief Minister nor the ministers were effectively countering the vituperative campaign by YSR Congress party and its chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy against party chief Sonia Gandhi and the government.

Ministers Danam Nagender, Galla Aruna Kumari, former president of PCC D Srinivas, MLAs Gandra Venkata Ramana Reddy, Nandeeswar Goud and several other leaders were among those who met Azad who spent over three hours at the Gandhi Bhavan this afternoon.
