HYDERABAD: Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao will meet Union ministers at Parliament House on Monday and submit individual memorandums to them.

Rao, who is in Delhi, will attend the chief ministers’ conference being chaired by prime minister Narendra Modi on Sunday. “Rao did not meet any Union minister on Saturday. He will be busy on Sunday with the prime minister’s meeting,” a TRS MP, who is in Delhi, told Express.

According to sources, Rao did not seek appointment with any Union minister on Saturday. “Rao will directly meet the Union ministers on Monday,” party sources said.

As the chief ministers’ meeting will be on the revamp of the Planning Commission, most of the issues relating to the state would be raised at the meeting, the sources said.

However, on crucial issues like allocation of staff and funds from particular ministries, Rao would meet the Union ministers directly at Parliament House.

Speaking to reporters in Delhi, party MPs AP Jitender Reddy and B Narasaiah Goud said the TRS government in the state would maintain bonhomie with the central government.

“There is no distance between Telangana and Delhi. We want to maintain cordial relations with the Centre,” Reddy said.  Goud said Modi served as chief minister for three terms and keep in mind the problems he had faced as CM. While releasing funds to the state, the central government should also issue directions on utilising them. “We hope that the Centre will give a free hand to states on spending central funds  as per their needs and aspirations,” Goud added.

According to sources, Rao will return to Hyderabad from Delhi by the 4.45 pm flight  on Monday.
