Later, Chandrababu told the Press that Modi exchanged pleasantries with him and enquired about his family and health. He asked me why I had not been coming to Delhi all these years and I told him that I have no work here, he said.
When Modi asked Naidu to come to Delhi for a meeting once, the latter replied that he, too, would like to have a meeting with him, if he got an appointment. Feel at home. Whenever you want to come, just inform our office. They will fix an appointment, Chandrababu quoted Modi as saying.
Though the interaction between Narender and Chandrababu was very brief, it created ripples in the state political circles, as both of them were meeting for the first time after a gap of more than four years.
