Deccan Chronicle - - POL­I­TICS - DC COR­RE­SPON­DENT HY­DER­ABAD, JUNE 14

Chief Min­is­ter K. Chan­drasekhar Rao on Thurs­day left for Delhi by a spe­cial flight from Begum­pet air­port to meet Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi on Fri­day and take up pend­ing is­sues.

Mr Rao will also par­tic­i­pate in the Niti Aayog meet­ing be­ing con­vened by Mr Modi on June 17 with the Chief Min­is­ters of all states.

Spec­u­la­tions are rife that a pro­posal on hold­ing si­mul­ta­ne­ous polls for the Lok Sabha and Leg­isla­tive Assem­blies in all states would come up for dis­cus­sion at the Niti Aayog meet­ing.

On top of Mr Rao’s agenda dur­ing the visit to the cap­i­tal is to seek Mr Modi’s nod for amend­ing the Pres­i­den­tial Or­der of 1975 to im­ple­ment new zonal sys­tem, cleared by the Cab­i­net re­cently, which is aimed at en­sur­ing 95 per cent reser­va­tions for lo­cals in em­ploy­ment and ed­u­ca­tion.

Be­sides, Mr Rao also wants to seek the Cen­tre’s ap­proval for the TS Reser­va­tions Act passed in April 2017, en­hanc­ing reser­va­tions for Mus­lims to 12 per cent and STs to 10 per cent. It has been ly­ing with the Cen­tre for a year.
