Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao is showing special love for the people of Andhra Pradesh these days, particularly after the election of YSR Congress chief Jaganmohan Reddy as chief minister. KCR had helped the Jaganmohan Reddy government in resolving some of the bifurcation issues, if not all. He is also planning for a joint irrigation project with AP government to take Godavari water to Srisailam reservoir. The project, according to him and Jaganmohan Reddy would provide irrigation water to Rayalaseema through Pothireddipadu head regulator.
On Monday, KCR visited Nagari MLA R K Roja’s house in Chittoor district and had lunch with her. He told the YSR Congress leaders and others that he is working as elder brother to Jaganmohan Reddy in the development of Andhra Pradesh. “I will be his elder brother. Together we would develop both Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Giving water to Rayalaseema is my priority,” he told the people reiterating his commitment to complete the Godavari-Krishna link project.
KCR said that Andhra Pradesh has a leader with strong will power and commitment. He said he would help the young chief minister to develop the State. We will share the resources to develop the Telugu States, he said. Chandrasekhar Rao said that the rivers in the State were overflowing the reservoirs were filled to their capacity for the first time after several years. This is a good sign of good days. A good administration coupled with good administration is sure of development and growth, he told the YSR Congress leaders who met him in Nagari and greeted him on his arrival.
The two governments are working hand in glove ever since Jaganmohan Reddy assumed charge as chief minister. The two governments were at loggerheads in the last five years and not a single bifurcation issue was resolved as the two chief ministers were in fighting mode. Now, things have changed and the two chief ministers are having brotherly relationship, which KCR reassured. It is to be seen how the two chief ministers would work to develop the two states in the days to come.
