There was no official word about Nadella’s other engagements in the city. He is likely to leave for New Delhi later in the day and attend a few programs in the national capital before returning to the US. For Hyderabad-born Nadella, this is his first visit to India after taking over as the CEO.
He arrived in the city Sept 28 and met Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao. The visit was kept a closely guarded secret and the media was not informed. There was no official statement about the meeting. Even pictures were not taken during the meeting. Sources described the half-an-hour long meeting as a courtesy call. Nadella reportedly spoke to Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu over phone. It was not clear if Microsoft CEO will meet Naidu, who is in Visakhapatnam to inaugurate a technology incubation centre. An alumni of Hyderabad Public School (HPS), Nadella, 47, is son of former Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer B.N. Yugandhar. His wife is the daughter of another retired IAS officer K.R. Venugopal. (IANS)
