Official sources in the Chief Minister''s Office said he would reach the national capital at 2 pm and is scheduled to meet Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Water Resources Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat.

The legal issues related to the appointment of the State Election Commissioner, release of Central grants and other pending matters are also expected to come up for discussion between the Chief Minister and the Union Home Minister, the sources added. The recent tiff between AP and Telangana over utilisation of river Krishna water from the Srisailam reservoir and the projects proposed to be taken up in the Rayalaseema region will be the main agenda in the meeting with the Water Resources Minister.
