Union Minister of State for Textiles Panabaka Lakshmi hosted a breakfast for Chief Minister K Rosaiah on Monday. Rosaiah, who was on a one- day visit to Nellore district, attended the breakfast along with a few local leaders.
On arrival at Panabaka Lakshmi’s house in Nellore on Monday morning, the Chief Minister was received with ritualistic respect by the Union Minister and her husband P Krishnaiah. After breakfast, Rosaiah left Nellore for Visakhapatnam.
Much cannot be read into the breakfast diplomacy. The only indication is that Rosaiah can be assured of Panabaka Lakshmi’s support from Nellore region where different factions exist within the Congress.
Whether Panabaka Lakshmi is seeking a corporate post or an MLC for her husband P Krishnaiah, who lost the Assembly elections in 2009, cannot be everybody’s guess.
