Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Friday appealed to the Centre to release Rs 24,205 crore for the two flagship schemes of the state government – Mission Kakatiya and Mission Bhagiratha as per the recommendations of NITI Aayog. The Telangana chief minister submitted a charter of 22 demands to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi in the evening.
This is for the first time that KCR, as the chief minister is popularly known, met PM Modi after the latter took over as the Prime Minister for the second consecutive term on May 30. It was also after a gap of nine months that the Telangana chief minister met the Prime Minister.
The last time the meeting took place was on December 26, two weeks after KCR won the elections in the state for a second term.
