HYDERABAD: A selfie with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and a list of representations including release of Central funds to the state, setting up of a turmeric board and other development schemes and programmes for Nizamabad were among the wish list of Nizamabad MP K Kavitha when she met the PM in Delhi on Friday.

Kavitha was closetted with Modi and discussed about various issues related to the state and Nizamabad.

Kavitha brought to the notice of the PM that the state has not received the Central government grants for rural local bodies to the tune of `504.06 crore and for urban local bodies at `263.79 crore as per the recommendations of the 13th Finance Commission. ‘’Kindly see that the `767.85 crore is released to the state at the earliest,’’ she urged the PM.

The state government was taking all possible steps to relieve the people of their misery,’’ Kavitha said and urged the Centre to release the Central government’s share of input subsidy from National Calamity Fund to come to the rescue of the farmers.

Once again raising the issue of setting up of separate High Court for Telangana, she asked for PM’s urgent intervention and requested the Union cabinet to take a decision and through the President notify the location for both Telangana and AP High Courts.

Kavitha also urged Modi to set up a Turmeric Board for the welfare of the farmers growing turmeric across the nation.

Schemes related to Nizamabad: With respect to Nizamabad district, which she represents, Kavitha requested Modi for sanctioning a manufacturing project under any ministry apart from sanctioning a Special Economic Zone in Nizamabad. ‘’ Nizamabad can be an attractive destination for public sector investments as well as private sector,’’ she said.

Kavitha said Nizamabad is well connected by road, rail and air connectivity with nearest airports located at Hyderabad and Nanded. Two major highways also pass through the district and also the railway station is connected to all major cities, she said.
