Presidential candidate P A Sangma on Monday sought jailed YSR Congress party chief Jagan Mohan Reddy's support to his candidature for the upcoming Presidential election.
He also alleged that he was not allowed to meet Reddy personally in the Chanchalguda prison on Monday.
Sangma said he was first allowed to meet the south Indian leader at 9 am in the morning and was later postponed till 11 am.
He said the meeting was later cancelled on the instruction of the ´state government´ and ´Union government´ authorities.
"I went back to my hotel. I was proceeding to the jail at around 10.45 am so that I am able to be there between 11 and 12 as I have been told to be there by the jail authorities," Sangma told reporters.
"When we were about to reach the jail, my son James Sangma, who is an MLA, was informed by the jailer that my meeting with Jagan Mohan Reddy is cancelled and that I will not be allowed to meet him because my visit was going to be political", he said.
