Telangana Chief Minister KCR who had earlier scheduled to tour in the national capital Delhi for three days had made a few changes to his tour and extended his tour. He is said to have appealed to the Union Government to look into the water disputes between the Telugu States.

KCR’s meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, and Jal Sakthi Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat had raised the opinion that he discussed the water issues with the trio.

With his counterpart being a step ahead in dealing with the water disputes, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy had swung into action to take his version to the Union Government on the Krishna and Godavari river water disputes.

It is said that YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is using all the possible ways to get his appointment fixed with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah to discuss the issues about the interests of Andhra Pradesh.

On the other hand, it is also said that Jagan is likely to discuss other issues like asking for more funds for the state and urge the Union Government to finance related matters of the state.

He might also seek help from the Centre on the Three Capitals Issue that has been pending for a long time. The YSRCP is strong on its idea to decentralize development by having three capitals for the state.

YS Jagan Mohan Reddy might also raise a complaint with the Centre against Rebel MP Raghurama Krishnam Raju who has been a thorn in the flesh for the government.

The issues the BJP has with the other States like West Bengal and Tamil Nadu gave a chance to the two Telugu States to be in a rather demanding position as the Centre wants help from two states in Parliament at the time of passing of the crucial bills.

As both States are having cordial relationships with the Union Government, it's interesting to know whom the BJP will favor now. To end the water disputes, the Centre had earlier brought a gazette notification, under which the respective river management boards will have control of the irrigation projects.
