Jagan, KCR wants to maintain 'distance' for two months!

Chief Minister of AP YS Jaganmohan Reddy and his Telangana counterpart K Chandrasekhar Rao are learnt to have decided to maintain distance for at least two months.

This is because they want to take time to wait for the dust to settle down around Godavari water diversion controversy.

Jagan and KCR have already met half a dozen times within a month after YSRCP won Assembly elections with a record majority.

Jagan led a delegation of AP ministers and official to KCR's Pragathi Bhavan in June to discuss on the resolution of pending bifurcation-relates issues between TS and AP.

In this meeting, KCR proposed to divert Godavari water to Srisailam and Nagarjunasagar projects for the benefit of AP and TS.

Jagan was all praise for KCR who termed him as a 'generous person' for coming forward to help AP.

After this meeting, Jagan has been facing severe criticism from various quarters in AP who are accusing Jagan of colluding with KCR for his selfish interests and compromising on the interests of AP.

Jagan and KCR are supposed to meet in July last week to take the proposals of Godavari water diversion forward.

However, reliable sources said both agreed to postpone their next meeting to September as Godavari issue has raised considerable political heat in AP due to TDP leaders strongly resisting it both inside an outside the Assembly.

Godavari issue has been rocking AP Assembly in the ongoing Budget session.

Jagan and KCR feel that by September, the dust will settle down and they can go ahead with their proposals.

So, the next meeting between Jagan and KCR would be held only in September.
