Amaravati: Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu welcomed the camaraderie of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana Chief Ministers Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy and K Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR) and expressed hope it would lead to resolution of outstanding issues between the two neighbouring states.
Chief Ministers of the two states talking to each other with open hearts and trying to find speedy resolutions to the disputes which remained contentious for the past five years through negotiations is a move that should be welcomed.
"If they could settle things without the need for the Centres intervention, it is all the more better, the Vice-President said in a post on his official Facebook page.
Venkaiah Naidu, who is currently touring the state of Andhra Pradesh, said he had expressed this desire even earlier but somehow it did not not work out "for whatever reason." He said the move by YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and KCR, to address the contentious issues together was a happy thing for people of the two Telugu states.
Both the Chief Ministers discussing issues like brothers and co-operating with each other thinking of resolving the peoples problems is desirable and joyful. I wish their efforts succeed, Venkaiah added. The Vice-President said he wanted all Telugu people to stay united despite geographical division of the states for administration ease and faster development.
