Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y. S. Jagan Mohan Reddy is scheduled to visit Delhi on Tuesday, his third visit to the national capital in the last four months.
Reddy is expected to meet Union Home Minister Amit Shah and discuss various issues concerning the southern state such as releasing state funds and the Polavaram project.
He will leave for Delhi at 2.30 p.m. on Tuesday after reviewing the implementation of the ‘YSR Cheyutha Scheme’ and the ‘Andhra Pradesh-Amul project’.
The Andhra CM last visited Delhi in December 2020 and called upon Shah and discussed various issues about the state, including releasing funds for the Polavaram project.
Reddy had submitted a memorandum on the Polavaram project and urged Shah to consider the second revised cost estimate to release Rs 55,656 crore expenditure funds and issuing the required directives to the Finance and the Jal Shakti departments.
He had also requested the Central government to reimburse the land acquisition, relief and rehabilitation packages as per the Land Acquisition Act, 2013.
He had also visited Delhi in October and met Prime Minister Narendra Modi to discuss the development of the state.
In October 2020, Reddy had complained to the Chief Justice of India S. A. Bobde about the alleged intervention of a sitting Supreme Court judge to protect the interests of the opposition Telugu Desam Party.
