This meeting by the MHA comes in the backdrop of a cordial relationship that both state governments are seeing, ever since YSRCP chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy became the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh. 

The MHA has convened a similar meeting of officials of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh over the same issues in April this year. At that time, issues pertaining to education and infrastructure had been discussed. 

Jagan Mohan Reddy has repeatedly met with his Telangana counterpart K Chandrasekhar Rao, to clear issues pending between the states since bifurcation. Both the Chief Ministers have already agreed to solve all the outstanding issues amicably and foster good neighbourly relations for the welfare of the people of both the states.
