Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, was watched closely by the people of this State. There is no anger or hatred for him among the AP people, for the bifurcation. There is rather a special love for him and his leadership. He visited the State as a special guest for the Amaravati foundation. That was when the Telugu Desam Party was in power and Chandrababu Naidu was the chief minister.
Now, after five years of bifurcation, KCR visited the State, again as special guest, for the swearing-in ceremony of Y S Jaganmohan Reddy, as the new chief minister. KCR congratulated the new chief minister and promised his support for AP in its development. The relations between the two Telugu States were not healthy in the last five years. There were political and other cases including the infamous note for vote case where TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu tried to buy the vote of a nominated MLA in the MLC elections of Telangana State.
The dispute and the differences continued and it reflected in the other issues like inter-state water sharing, the final settlement of employees between the two states after bifurcation and so on. There are several issues to be settled between Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, after bifurcation. The officials are not able to clear them due to the political differences between the ruling parties of the two States.
Now, having come as a special guest, KCR had promised to help resolve the pending issues between the two states. He offered an olive leaf to new chief minister Jaganmohan Reddy and hoped that the healthy relationship would continue for the next five years, by which time, the pending issues are expected to be resolved. Good days are ahead for the two Telugu States, if the political heads work together like this.
