Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao and his Andhra Pradesh counterpart YS Jagan Mohan Reddy Saturday met the Governor of the two states ESL Narasimhan and attended an Iftar hosted by him.
The two Chief Ministers are understood to have discussed issues vis-a-vis bifurcation of (undivided) Andhra Pradesh in 2014.
Rao attended the swearing-in of Jagan in Vijayawada on Thursday. The two leaders have already decided to take steps to address issues concerning both the states. At the swearing-in ceremony on Thursday, the Telangana Chief Minister said that the Jagan must continue as Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh for 3-4 terms. He also added that Reddy must understand that only mutual cooperation between the two Telugu states will help in the development of their respective states.
The newly sworn-in Andhra Chief Minister too had echoed a similar sentiment in his speech after the official ceremony.
Hyderabad is the common capital for the two states for a period of 10 years beginning 2014. Both attended the Iftar hosted by the Governor on the occasion of Ramzan at the Raj Bhavan complex, official sources said.
