In New Delhi for a visit, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao today urged the Centre to finalize the bifurcation of the common High Court of the two Telugu States and also keep the promises of the Andhra Pradesh Reorganization Act.
KCR took a special flight from the Begumpet airport and reached the national capital along with Chief Secretary S K Joshi, DGP Mahender Reddy and other officials. In Delhi, KCR first called on union law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and discussed on the long-pending issue of the Hyderabad High Court bifurcation. He asked for a speedy decision on the issue as the state was ready with the land and other facilities needed. The CM also asked Prasad to direct the Andhra Pradesh government to speed up the process of setting up a new high court in its state.
The Centre also needed to take a call on the other issues pertaining to the bifurcation of the united state, he said.
KCR has also sought an appointment to meet the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and is expected to meet several other union ministers too during his Delhi stint. In the meetings, he is expected to urge the Centre to give its nod for the new zonal system approved by the state government, and discuss and seek release of the funds for several flagship programs.
