New Delhi, May 30 (IANS) Prime Minister-elect Narendra Modi on Thursday congratulated newly-elected Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy and assured him of full cooperation from the Centre.

“Congratulations to @ysjagan on taking oath as Andhra Pradesh’s Chief Minister. I assure full cooperation from the Centre. We will work together to take Andhra Pradesh to new heights,” Modi said in a tweet.

Governor E.S.L. Narasimhan administered Jagan Reddy the oath of office and secrecy at a public ceremony held at Indira Gandhi Municipal Stadium in Vijayawada. Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao and DMK leader M.K. Stalin were also present.
