New Delhi: Y S Vivekananda Reddy on Sunday met Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and is understood to have discussed the political situation in Andhra Pradesh arising out of the rebellious attitude of his nephew and party MP Jaganmohan Reddy.

Vivekananda Reddy, the brother of late Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, met Gandhi at her 10, Janpath residence in the morning.

The two are understood to have discussed the issue of Sakshi television channel owned by Jagan launching a frontal attack on the Congress President, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and party general secretary Rahul Gandhi.

There was no official word on what transpired at the 30-minute long meeting.

Vivekananda Reddy refused to speak to the waiting media outside Gandhi's residence.

The visit also assumes significance in the wake of Vivekananda seeking a cabinet berth for himself in the Kiran Kumar Reddy ministry.

It also comes a day after he said Jaganmohan would meet Gandhi and express regret for airing of the programmes on Sakshi TV channel.
