In a crucial political development, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has denied appointment to Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao who had requested to meet him. Stating that he is busy preparing arrangements to go on foreign visit on Tuesday, Modi’s team turned down KCR’s request for PM’s appointment. What is more shocking development is that Modi invited Karnataka Chief Minister Kumaraswamy and held a one to one meeting after denying permission to KCR.
Miffed over not giving permission to meet the Prime Minister, KCR has cut short his Delhi tour and returned to Hyderabad on Monday afternoon. He returned soon after meeting Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh.
KCR went to national capital on Sunday on a three day tour to seek the nod from Prime Minister and President Ram Nath Kovind for the creation of new zones.
The PMO (Prime Minister Office) has informed KCR that Modi was busy preparing to leave on foreign tour in the next 24 hours and all the appointments given earlier were cancelled. Modi will return to India in three days. As there is no option, KCR accompanied by the party leaders, returned to Hyderabad.
What Led To Feud Between KCR and Modi?
The ongoing feud between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Telangana CM KCR is wide out in open. While KCR has declared a war against Modi and putting efforts to form Federal Front, a non-BJP and non-Congress front, the relation between the twain have soured of late.
KCR’s recent public comments “Modi Gadiki” too have not gone down well with Modi & his team. Although KCR had clarified that he hadn’t said so and he had no intention to address Modi with “disrespect”, KCR said it was unintentional.
Even when Modi had visited Hyderabad for the inauguration of Metro, Modi was seen sitting next to KTR instead of sitting next to CM KCR. All these had been indicating that all is not well between the duo. It all started with KCR making severe remarks against Modi during 2014 poll campaign.
Amidst all this, it is no surprise that Modi has denied his appointment to KCR.
