This will be the first meeting of the two political leaders since KCR announced his decision of forming a ‘Federal Front’
HYDERABAD: Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao is scheduled to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi on June 15 at 12:30 pm in New Delhi.
According to the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO), KCR will leave for Delhi on Thursday to discuss several issues pertaining to the state.
This announcement came even as KCR called on Telangana and Andhra Pradesh Governor ESL Narasimhan at Raj Bhavan in Hyderabad.
During his previous visit to New Delhi in the last week of May, KCR met with Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and discussed the issue of the new zonal system proposed by the state government.
While the Chief Minister had sought an appointment from the Prime Minister, he was not granted one at the time.
“The chief minister is likely to discuss several pending issues pertaining to the state including President’s assent for the new zonal system, 12 pc reservation to Muslims, linking agriculture with NREGS and raising the minimum support price (MSP) for farm produces,” sources told TNIE.
While confirmation from the Prime Minister’s office is still awaited, this will be the first meeting of the two political leaders since KCR announced his decision of forming a ‘Federal Front’.
Last month, KCR said that the proposed national alliance of political parties has not declared any party as untouchable and made it clear that it will keep its options open.
Stating that no name has been given to the proposed alliance, he said any party could join it if it agrees with the national agenda, which will be announced in one-and-a-half to two months.
Stating that both the BJP and the Congress miserably failed to address people’s problems during last 70 years, KCR said the front would trigger tremor in the national politics with its agenda for speedy development and for addressing the real issues of people.
