HYDERABAD:  With the state witnessing a spate of farmers’ suicides and the opposition showing rare unity to corner the ruling party, chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao closeted with governor ESL Narasimhan for the second consecutive day, raising many eyebrows. Though it came to light that several issues were discussed, the CM also reportedly apprised the Governor about the proposed redesigning and reengineering of irrigation projects in the state.

CM.JPGThe meeting lasted for nearly four hours and this assumed significance as the CM had held three-hour-long confabulations with the governor on Thursday itself. Incidentally, Friday’s meeting was the third one that Rao had with Narasimhan since his return from China on September 17.

According to sources, Rao gave a powerpoint presentation about how the government wants to redesign the projects.

Also, Rao informed the Governor about the plans with regard to development of Hyderabad with skyscrapers and skyways. Other issues that came up for discussion include government efforts to solve the drinking water problem in Hyderabad.

Hard Times

Farmers Suicides

Warangal Encounter

Political Defections and action against Talasani Srinivas Yadav

GHMC elections and ward delimitation

Rao reportedly discussed the spate of  farmers’ suicides, the Warangal encounterand also the controversy over the defection of TDP MLA T Srinivas Yadav to the TRS.

However, sources indicated that the defection of Srinivas Yadav, about which the Governor’s office too had sought a clarification from the state Government, also came up.

The opposition parties, particularly the TTDP, have been clamouring for the dismissal of Srinivas Yadav. Acting on a series of representations, the Governor had written a letter to the chief secretary on September 18 directing him to take necessary action on a petition filed by TDP MLA Maganti Gopinath.

Sources said the government was baffled by the letter from the Governor’s office and Rao had sought an appointment to explain the government’s stand on the issue.

Sources said the government is not in a mood to go for a by-election for Sanathnagar Assembly seat, which is held by Srinivas Yadav, at this juncture.
