Chief Minister K Rosaiah on Tueday expressed his displeasure over Teugu Desam Party chief Nara Chandrababu Naidu’s statement that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh did not study the Babli issue even after giving an appointment to hear the Babli project.
Interacting with the media on Tuesday about his three-day trip to Delhi, the Chief Minister said the all-party delegation on the Babli met Prime Minister and apprised him of the latest developments on the Babli issue. When the PM had assured the all-party team on July 26 that he would study the issue thoroughly and render justice to the State, Chandrababu should not have insisted on a deadline to settle the issue.
The representatives of all political parties had presented their arguments before the Prime Minister on the Babli project. “We asked the Prime Minister to show a solution to the Babli issue as head of the country of federal states. The Prime Minister was also impressed by their suggestion to formulate a mechanism to find a permanent solution to such issues”, the CM observed.
Rosaiah criticized Naidu for the tone and tenor in which he stated that Dr Singh was not interested to solve the Babli issue. The Opposition parties, except TDP, expressed satisfaction over the deliberations with the Prime Minister, Rosaiah averred.
