AP chief minister N. Chandrababu Naidu held a cabinet conference, which is the last cabinet meeting for this course, on Tuesday to review the drinking water crisis in the state and drought conditions. The meeting was carried a day after the Election Commission gave a green signal to the government.
This Cabinet meeting assumes importance as it could be the last meeting of Chandrababu as the CM if his party fails in the elections. Nevertheless, if he wins, he will get back to his marathon Cabinet meetings. Interestingly, the Cabinet meeting also saw the Chief Minister and Chief Secretary L.V. Subrahmanyam interchange greetings notwithstanding a fight going on between them from the last few days.
The meeting went on for two-hours which talked on the steps being taken by the government to relieve the drinking water crisis in the state, particularly in Rayalaseema. The extent of damage caused due to Cyclone Fani also was presented at the meeting. Nevertheless, there was no media briefing following the Cabinet meeting.
At the end of the meeting, the Chief Minister had thanked all the leaders for cooperating and giving their best in the last five years under the TDP government and wished that he would get the opportunity to work again with them. Evidently, after the meeting, many leaders were seen talking whether Chandrababu will hold power or will be replaced by a new Chief Minister!
