PM Narendra Modi in Delhi, awaits PM meet

Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao left for Delhi on Monday night for three days. Depend-ing on the situation, Mr Rao may extend his Delhi visit.

The purpose of the visit is to attend the marriage reception of Power Finance Corporation chairman Rajeev Shar-ma’s son on Tuesday. Mr Rao will also undergo a dental check-up and is scheduled to return to Hyderabad on December 5.

Two days ago, at a media conference, Mr Rao said he was going to Delhi on December 3 and would meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi to discuss pending issues related to the state.

He said he would request Mr Modi to set up the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) at Hyderabad. But the appointment with the Prime Minister has not been confirmed. Should it come through, he will stay on.

Mr Rao was also going to discuss with the centre the privatisation of RTC routes in the state as per the central government’s Motor Vehicle Act.

But now he seems to have shelved the privatisation plan. He did say though that the Central government owes RTC around Rs 25,000 crore, so if he meets Mr Modi, this issue may be discussed.
