More than three years after the Telangana Rashtra Samiti government started its ambitious “Rs 1,800 crore” makeover of Lord Lakshmi Narasimha cave temple in Yadadri Bhuvanagiri district, it has run into controversy with carvings of CM K Chandrashekar Rao’s face being found on some pillars inside the main temple.
Both CMs decided to amicably resolve any issue pending between the states since the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh in June 2014. Due to an acrimonious relationship with former Andhra Pradesh CM N Chandrababu Naidu and Rao, water sharing was not discussed between the two.
Fadnavis has been invited because, in March 2016, the Maharashtra government agreed to the Telangana government's water-sharing arrangement if a dam or barrage was constructed across the River Godavari.
“KCR is of the view that NITI Aayog was formed for transformation of India but no such transformation is visible. The Centre is also working against the spirit of cooperative federalism,’’ a TRS leader familiar with the matter said.
The Election Commission in its order directing the producers of Lakshmi's NTR said the biopic of the late N T Rama Rao, which "purported" to depict incumbent state Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu in a manner "allegedly diminishing the electoral prospects of his party".
“Although the TRS candidate is a novice, the party has gained ground in the Assembly elections. Except for Huzurnagar, the TRS won all the other six Assembly segments under Nalgonda Lok Sabha constituency,’’ said Krishna Reddy, a Congress campaign manager in Nalgonda.
Telangana is all set to go for early polls as the CM K Chandrashekar Rao dissolved the state assembly after cabinet passed the resolution. Meanwhile, the Governor has accepted the recommendation of the state cabinet.
