In 2013 Digvijay Singh as Incharge of Andhra Pradesh affairs, continued Kirankumar Reddy as CM and stopped Botcha Satyanarayana to take over as CM in the wake of CWC decision on Telangana. Kirankumar Reddy earlier decided to step down as CM, if Congress goes ahead with State division. Those days media reported that he expressed his wish to Sonia Gandhi.
Sonia Gandhi prepared to accept his wish and Called Botcha Satyanarayana to Delhi, according to reports. But over a night everything changed. Kiran decided to continue. Botcha was shunted back to Hyderabad. Later Kirankumar spoiled everything for Congress in both states. But Congress failed to realise the damage done by Digvijay with ulterior motives.
After all this mess and spoils, Digvijay continued as both states in charge. He never carried party as a total with him. He played whims and fancies in decision making.
