Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jaganmohan Reddy and his Telangana counterpart K Chandrashekhar Rao will be meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a space of 24 hours from each other. The purpose of both Jagan and KCR is to seek funds for various developmental activities in their respective states. While KCR left for Delhi on Thursday and is all set to meet the Prime Minister today, Jagan will be meeting PM Modi on Saturday.
Several issues are pending with the Central government, including assurances given to both the states under the AP Reorganisation Act. Both the Chief Ministers will ask Mr Modi to resolve these issues at the earliest.
The Telangana Chief Minister is expected to ask centre for taking steps to declare national status to the Kaleshwaram or Palamuru–Rangareddy irrigation projects, and release funds under the backward areas development schemes.
Jagan on the other hand is reportedly meeting the PM with an agenda to seek funds towards the linking of Krishna- Godavari rivers which is expected to benefit the drought-prone areas in the two Telugu states immensely. The Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister will also be seeking central assistance on increasing the amount towards farmers' minimum income schemes. Presently, the centre gives Rs 6,000 to the farmers.
Post their respective meetings with the Prime Minister, both Jagan and KCR will meet each other to discuss the next step.
