A meeting with Supreme Court Chief Justice regarding division of High Court is also on cards. Family members of KCR are accompanying him during this visit.
KCR is expected to consult an eye-specialist during his tour. He has been suffering from cataract related problems for quite some time and he is expected to take an opinion on this. TRS sources said that a surgery might not be possible during this trip because of KCR’s busy schedule.
Chief Minister will strongly pitch for speeding up the setting up of National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) plant of 4,000 MW for Telangana that was part of Reorganisation Bill.
Telangana is in the midst of severe power crisis with only 4417 MW available per day against the demand of 6700 MW. He will appeal to Union government to bail out the State from this situation.
