Is Samarasimha Joining Chiru?

HYDERABAD: Is the veteran Congress leader D K Samarasimha Reddy joining Chiranjeevi's party? This was the speculation making rounds on Friday as he was among those who were present at the launch of a new website (foundation stone).

Samarasimha Reddy is former minister in previous Congress regimes from Gadwal constituency in Mahbubnagar district and was considered to be a formidable force.

Presently his sister in law D K Aruna is representing this constituency as Samajwadi Party member and is an associate member of the Congress party.

Inaugurating the web site on the occasion of Chiranjeevi's birthday, the actor's uncle, J Srinivas Rao said that people involved in social service can get close to the mega star through the web site.
