Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday in New Delhi. The CM discussed important issues related to the state with the PM. One of the central point of the discussion was to increase the assembly seats in the state.
It may be noted that the bill regarding delimitation of constituencies in the Telugu speaking states was not in the agenda for Monsoon sessions of Parliament. Consequently, both the CMs of the AP and TS are lobbying for increasing the number of seats.
Rajnath Singh on Tuesday informed the CMs individually that the approval of BJP President Amit Shah and PM Modi is required to go ahead with the delimitation.
KCR and Modi also discussed about protected lands and funds for backward areas.
Earlier in the day the TRS supremo met NDA Vice Presidential nominee Venkaiah Naidu. He affirmed that Venkaiah will win the elections and congratulated him.
KCR also met Union Minister Arun Jaitley and discussed on issues related to the state, economy and defence. MPs Jitender Reddy, Vinod and advisor Rajiv Sharma were present during the meeting.
