Hyderabad: Amid rumours that former Health Minister Eatala Rajender met senior BJP leaders including Union Minister of State for Home Affairs G Kishan Reddy at a farm house on the city suburbs, Kishan Reddy on Tuesday clarified that Rajender did not meet him.
He, however, said that Rajender had contacted him. “Rajender and I know each other for the last 15 years. What is wrong in it if he meets me,” Kishan Reddy said. His remarks came amid reports that Rajender met Kishan Reddy and other senior BJP leaders in the farm house owned by a former MP on the city outskirts.
Kishan Reddy said a decision on fielding a candidate from Huzurabad Assembly constituency represented by Rajender in case of a by-election would be taken only after discussing the issue in the party.
After being dismissed from the Cabinet, Rajender has been meeting several leaders from the Congress and other parties for the last few weeks. A probe is also on against him following allegations that he had forcibly taken assigned lands in Atchampet and Hakimpet villages.
