Default Who is Kiran Kumar Reddy?

Hyderabad: Nallari Kiran Kumar Reddy, who will take over as the 16th chief minister of Andhra Pradesh on Thursday, was once a cricketer and played for Hyderabad in the Ranji Trophy tournament.


The 50-year-old, who is presently the speaker of the state legislative assembly, will be sworn in as the new chief minister by Governor ESL Narasimhan at Raj Bhavan.


The four-time legislator represents Piler constituency in Chittoor district in the Rayalaseema region.





Born in Hyderabad September 13, 1960, he is the son of late Congress leader and former state minister from Chittoor district, N Amarnath Reddy, who was considered close to former prime ministers Indira Gandhi and PV Narasimha Rao.


He did his B.Com, LLB from Osmania University in Hyderabad. A student of Nizam College here, he was a passionate cricketer, led the university team and also played for the Hyderabad team in the Ranji Trophy.


He was first elected to the assembly from Vaylapad assembly constituency in 1989. He lost in 1994 but was re-elected in 1999 and 2004. He was elected from Piler in the 2009 elections.


Considered loyal to then chief minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy, Kiran Kumar Reddy served as government chief whip from 2004 to 2009. He also served as member of the Public Undertakings Committee and Assurance Committee.


In 2009, when Congress retained power, Kiran Kumar Reddy was an aspirant for a cabinet berth but Rajasekhara Reddy surprised everybody by picking him up for the speaker's post.


Kiran Kumar Reddy is known as a bitter critic of leader of opposition and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) president N Chandrababu Naidu, who also comes from Chittoor district.


The chief minister designate is married and has a son and a daughter.

Default AP govt to organise functions in memory of YSR

Late Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy’s first death anniversary will be observed across Andhra Pradesh tomorrow with the State government organising a series of functions in memory of the Congress leader.
Chief Minister K Rosaiah would unveil a 20-ft-tall statue at the ‘YSR Smriti Vanam’ (memorial garden) near the crash site at Pavuralagutta in Kurnool district which was being built in an area of 3,500 acres.

The garden would have a bio-diversity park, a ****erfly park and deer park. The State government would also organise a major function at Ravindra Bharati auditorium close to the State assembly and also the Secretariat. The ruling Congress would be organising ceremonies in all cities, towns and villages across the State even as Mr. Reddy’s son Jagan Mohan Reddy is now undertaking a ‘odarpu yatra’ to console the families of those who died of shock after Reddy’s death, defying the directives of the high command.

It was on September 2 last year that YSR’s chopper went missing soon after he left from Hyderabad in the morning for Chittoor district to launch ‘Rachabanda’, a government programme aimed at interacting with people on the implementation of welfare and development schemes.

He was accompanied in the twin-engine Bell 430 helicopter by his Principal Secretary S Subrahmanyam, Chief Security Officer ASC Wesley, pilot Group Captain S K Bhatia and co-pilot M S Reddy. As Congressmen and people at large were in state of shock and disbelief, the Army, Indian Air Force, Central Reserve Police Force personnel, Andhra Pradesh Police and elite anti-naxal police force ‘Greyhounds’ undertook the possibly biggest-ever search operation in the country to trace the missing chopper.

It was found that the chopper had crashed due to incessant rains in the dense jungles of Nallamala forest in Kurnool district, ****ing all the five people on board. Mr. Reddy was buried at his family estate Idupulapaya in his native Kadapa district. Keywords: Andhra Pradesh, Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, State Govt., Memorial meetings
