Hyderabad: In an indication of growing
proximity between Congress and Chiranjeevi`s Praja Rajyam in
Andhra Pradesh, Chief Minister K Rosaiah today welcomed the
comments of the actor-turned-politician offering to support
the ruling party.

"Congress party does not face any danger. Congress is in
a stable position. If either Chiranjeevi or someone else are
ready to support us, we don`t say no. It is good, of course,"
Rosaiah told reporters in Prakasam district where he was
touring.

Chiranjeevi had reportedly said his party would support
the Congress government, if such a situation arose, to ensure
that there is no political instability in the state and
consequent burden on the people.

The comments of Chiranjeevi and Rosaiah, who are said
to share a good chemistry, assume significance amid growing
speculation that Congress MP Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy would float
his own party, taking away a sizeable number of MLAs.

Jagan has been having a cold relationship with the party
high command ever since he defied its directive and undertook
his controversial `Odarpu yatra`.

Congress leadership has taken disciplinary action against
two supporters of Jagan so far for making critical remarks
against the party and Rosaiah.
