According to sources the meeting of Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi is significant because of the speculation that the formation of the Federal Front is to save Mr. Modi’s BJP in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections and the discussions were mostly about the political situation in the country and particularly in the two Telugu states. Meanwhile in their one hour and 15 minutes discussion, Mr. Rao briefed the Prime Minister about the strategy adopted by him in the Telangana Assembly elections which won him a huge victory.
Furthermore TRS sources said that there is no chance that the TRS and BJP will contest together in the Lok Sabha elections in Telangana, but there are chances they will work together and have an understanding. Further Mr. Rao made several suggestions and also gave advice to the Prime Minister about the strategy the NDA should adopt in the ensuing Lok Sabha elections to retain power.
Moreover the Chief Minister also urged the Prime Minister to sanction Rs 1,000 crore for the development of Kakatiya Mega Textile Park at Warangal. Accordingly the CMO disclosed that Mr. Rao reminded the Prime Minister that the request of the state government for conferring National Project status to the Kaleswaram Lift Irrigation Project was pending with the Centre for a long time and asked Mr. Modi to sanction a special grant to this major irrigation project.
