HYDERABAD:  A political bonhomie of sorts between Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu and his  Telangana counterpart K Chandrasekhar Rao could be on the cards when the latter lands in Amaravati on October 22. The recent ugly cash-for-vote episode had widened the rift between the two and made it that much more difficult for both to find an amicable solution to a range of issues, from river water sharing to bifurcation of corporations, conduct of Eamcet and even division of offices.

Against this backdrop, sources in both the governments said the meeting of the two CMs on an auspicious occasion would bode well for the warring States. The sources told Express that two Union Ministers from Telangana and AP played the role of peacemakers after the cash-for-vote scandal triggered personal animosity between Naidu and KCR.

A series of confabulations by the Ministers, including Bandaru Dattatreya, persuaded Naidu and KCR to bury the hatchet, the sources revealed. The stone laying ceremony at Amaravati came as the right opportunity and platform to take it forward. While Naidu took the lead and called on KCR, the latter too responded equally positively.
