Union Home Minister Amit Shah, who arrived here on Sunday, visited and offered prayers at the Ujjaini Mahakali temple here. Shah will address a public meeting in the evening at Munugode, about 85 km from here. Munugode is set to go for by-polls after Congress MLA K Rajagopa Reddy’s resignation.

Popular actor Jr NTR, grandson of former chief minister NT Rama Rao, who starred in the recent film ‘RRR’, is also scheduled to meet Shah. It is not clear what the agenda of the meeting is. Prior to the bifurcation of the state in the 2009 Andhra Pradesh Assembly elections, Jr NTR campaigned for the Telugu Desam Party. Later, he distanced himself from politics to focus on his career in the film industry.

After offering prayers at the temple, Shah visited the residence of BJP worker N Satyanarayana in Secunderabad. The state BJP said in a press release that Shah was accompanied by Union Tourism Minister G Kishan Reddy and Telangana BJP president Bandi Sanjay Kumar.
