Amith Shah - YS Jagan

NEW DELHI: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy on Thursday met Union Minister Amit Shah in New Delhi and requested him to consider the setting up of National Forensic Sciences University (NFSU) campus in Tirupati.

The Chief Minister reiterated the issues raised before Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Environment Minister Bhupender Yadav and sought the setting up of the NFSU campus to cater to the growing requirement of forensic experts in South India. He promised that his Government would allot the required land.

YS Jagan further explained that Tirupati had grown into an educational hub and the setting up of NFSU would serve the growing need for criminal investigation infrastructure.

He urged the Home Minister to work towards the release of pending arrears of Rs 32,625.25 crore including resource funding of Rs 18,330.45 crore for the fiscal 2014-15 and pension arrears, reimbursement of Rs 2,937.92 crore spent by the state government on the Polavaram Project from its own coffers so far and resolving other pending post-bifurcation issues between AP and Telangana.

The Chief Minister also sought the intervention of the Union Home Minister in collecting the arrears of Rs 6,886 crore outstanding from Telangana Discoms to the APGENCO. YS Jagan further requested Amit Shah to fix the Polavaram Project cost at Rs 55,548 crores as recommended by the Project's Technical Advisory Committee, do away with the policy of treating the project cost component-wise as it escalates the cost besides delaying the project, amend the flawed provisions of the National Food Security Act, grant 14 more medical colleges to the state, allot mines to meet the iron ore requirement of the steel plant being built at Kadapa and extend all cooperation to the proposed 76.9 km-long Metro Rail Project in Visakhapatnam.

He also urged the Home Minister to intervene and restrain the Telangana Government from acting unilaterally and violating operational procedures in drawing Krishna River water and generating electricity. YS Jagan also appealed for the grant of environmental clearances for the Rayalaseema Lift Irrigation Scheme (RLS) through which three TMC water per day can be supplied to TGP, SRBC and GNSS.
