New Delhi: Amid growing problems for the
party in Andhra Pradesh, film star-turned-politician
Chiranjeevi met Congress Chief Sonia Gandhi on Wednesday.

"No specific discussion took place. It was more of a
courtesy call," said Chiranjeevi after the 30-minute meeting,
the first after his Praja Rajyam Party`s merger with Congress
in August this year.

He said the meeting was long overdue as he "wanted to
thank her".

He said Sonia was "happy" over his decision to join the
Congress as she felt that the merger re-energised the cadres
in party-ruled state.

Asked whether he discussed the simmering issue of separate
Telangana with Gandhi, he said a few weeks back he had met
Congress Core committee and he had given his opinion on the
issue there.
