The News Minute | July 7, 2014 | 12:30 PM IST  Telangana CM K. Chandrashekar Rao has asked his party (TRS) MPs to oppose the Centre’s decision to devolve more power to Governors in the Parliament. He has said that the move indicates a direct intervention in the affairs of the state government, quoted The Hindu. The Centre’s proposal would empower the Governor to act in matters of the police in Hyderabad, reported The New Indian Express. This, KCR says, will threaten Centre-State relations. The TRS MPs are expected to bring up the matter In the Budget Session of the Parliament that starts today. The report also said that the CM has also asked the MPs to protests against the Home Ministry’s proposal to amend the AP State Reorganizing Act. The Bill, if passed, would transfer seven mandals of Khammam District to Andhra Pradesh. The MPs have also been asked to raise the Polvaram Project issue, a national river-linking project which is likely to displace a large number of people. The reports suggested that the TRS chief has asked his MPs to take support from other regional parties and also meet the Cabinet separately with a list of demands.
