Amaravati: State Governor ESL Narasimhan along with Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao will be making a visit to Vijayawada on Monday. Vishaka Sri Sarada Peetham pontiff Swami Swaroopanandendra has named Kiran Kumar Sarma as his successor to Sarada Peetham. Kiran Balaswamy, who is apprenticing at Sarada Peetham in Visakhapatnam will be made a full-fledged sanyasi at a ceremony on Monday. Governor Narasimhan, AP, Telangana Chief Ministers YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and KCR will participate in the event.
KCR’s visit to Vijayawada is to extend an invitation to his Andhra Pradesh counterpart to participate in the ceremony dedicating Kaleswaram Lift Irrigation Project to the nation, which is scheduled on June 21. The Chief Minister has already handed over an invitation to Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis at Mumbai on Friday. According to the schedule, KCR will be reaching Vijayawada by noon and offer prayers at Kanaka Durga temple before heading to YS Jagan’s residence at Tadepalli where they will have a luncheon meeting.
The two Chief Ministers are likely to hold discussions to resolve the state’s bifurcation disputes. In view of the meeting, the relevant departments have already submitted reports to the government on the status of the state’s bifurcation issues. KCR and YS Jagan have already held two meetings in order to establish good relations between AP and Telangana. The two CMs continue to negotiate in a sympathetic environment with a tendency to solve problems. The governor has recently issued a decree that the buildings allotted to AP offices in Hyderabad will be reassigned to the AP Government as they have been lying vacant for the last four years. The move comes as a result of talks between the two states’ CMs so far.
The two states have to solve the issues of separation of public sector enterprises, distribution of electricity workers and dues in electricity bills. Some of these are likely to be resolved at the meeting on Monday.
