HYDERABAD: Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao will meet prime minister Narendra Modi in Delhi on Friday and discuss pending issues including implementation of the AP Reorganisation Act, 2014. Rao flew from the Begumpet airport and reached Delhi on Thursday evening.

The chief minister will meet Modi at 12.30 pm on Friday. According to sources, Rao is likely to take up issues pertaining to the state which include the new zonal system. The file on it is already with the Union ministry of home affairs. Rao will request Modi to forward it to the President for his assent.

Rao will also take up issues relating to the 9th and 10th schedules of AP Reorganisation Act and other pending issues. He had already written a letter to the Centre claiming right to AP Bhavan in Delhi. The AP Bhavan land was acquired originally by the Nizam who ruled the then Hyderabad state. So the Telangana government lays claim to the property and does not want divided between AP and TS.

Rao will also take up quota hike for Muslims, SCs and STs. The state legislative Assembly adopted a resolution for enhancing the reservation to these sections and sent it to the home ministry. He is likely to request the PM to leave the reservation subject to states so that they can allot reservation to communities.
