Vijayawada: Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has decided to raise the issues concerning the State post-bifurcation at the Inter-State Council meeting scheduled to be held in Delhi on Saturday.

The Chief Minister had reportedly told the MPs that he would seek the support of the Chief Ministers of all States who are expected to be present at the meeting. He had also decided to speak to the leaders of all parties that were present in the Parliament when the State was bifurcated.

The Chief Minister, who had returned from the five-day Russia tour, held a meeting with the party MPs and also the two MPs from the ally-BJP. The Chief Minister tried to impress upon the MPs to fight for the issues concerning the State in both Houses of Parliament. He wanted better coordination among the MPs of TDP and BJP, and sought the support of the BJP MPs K Haribabu and G Ganga Raju, who were also present at the meeting.

He recalled how the State was bifurcated and the injustice was done to the State, and wanted the MPs to raise the issues. While impressing upon the MPs that the TDP would continue to have better relations with the BJP, he wanted the MPs to work to strengthen the relations and resolve issues concerning the State.

He cited the functioning of the MPs from Telangana and asked the State MPs to work above party lines in the larger interest of the State.
The BJP MPs, while responding to the request, told the Chief Minister that they would also raise the issues in the Parliament and would get them resolved using their influence in the ruling party.

The Chief Minister had also informed the MPs that he was ready to work in coordination with the neighbouring Telangana State.
He said he was not for a fight with the neighbouring State on issues like river water, but would seek the Central government’s support to resolve them.

He further told them that he would make a statement in the Inter-State Council meeting that his government was ready for an amicable solution for the problems with the Telangana government.

When the issue of the two private member bills likely to come up in this session, the Chief Minister felt that a decision could be taken once the bills came up. The two bills included, special category status bill by Congress MP, K V P Ramachandra Rao and amendments to Anti-Defection Law by the YSRCP member Vijayasai Reddy.

He wanted the MPs to keep a constant tab on the development of the said two bills and wait for a decision. “Let us wait. We shall take a decision on these two bills once they are tabled in the House,” he told the MPs.
