HYDERABAD: Issues such as sharing of river waters, power, common admissions into professional colleges, vesting Governor with power over law and order in Hyderabad, which have become a bone of contention between Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, are likely to get the attention of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday.

The reason is that Governor ESL Narasimhan, who is looking after both AP and Telangana States, is expected to call on the Prime Minister on Friday to seek his guidance on the contentious issues between the sibling States.

Narasimhan, who has been in Delhi for the last two days, told mediapersons on Thursday that he would meet the Prime Minister on Friday.

“During my meeting with the Union Home Minister, I discussed with him the issues relating to both Andhra Pradesh and TS. I have sought the appointment with the Prime Minister. If possible, I will meet him on Friday,” he said.

It is expected that during his meeting with the Prime Minister, the Governor might apprise Modi of prevailing situation in both the States besides submitting him a detailed report over the contentious issues between Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

It is believed that the viewpoints of governments of both AP and TS are likely to be presented by the Governor before Prime Minister point by point so as to find an amicable solution to every issue.

Sources said during his meeting with Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, held on Wednesday, Narasimhan discussed various issues relating to Andhra Pradesh and TS mentioned in the AP Reorganisation Act-2014.

The Governor was in Delhi to attend a meeting of Governors of various States, convened by President Pranab Mukherjee.

Prior to his Delhi visit, the Governor had already held several rounds of discussions with the governments of both the States in order to find a solution to every vexatious issue between the two States.
