The meeting is being seen as yet another attempt by the Center to resolve the pending issues. Under the Reorganization Act, all post-Partition issues have to be resolved in 10 years. The last meeting between the two states was held on September 27, but remained inconclusive.

14 pending issues were discussed. Out of them, 7 issues were related to inter-state issues between Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. The remaining issues include financial assistance, grants for development of backward areas and other assurances given under the Reorganization Act.

The Union Secretary directed the Ministry of Home Affairs to examine all court cases regarding partition of property in consultation with the Law Department. During the meeting, Andhra Pradesh demanded its share in the land parcels, buildings and Bank Reserve of Common Intitude located in Hyderabad in the ratio of 52:48 between AP:TS in proportion to its population.

These institutions, listed under Schedule 9 (Corporations etc.) and 10 (Training Institutes) of the AP Reorganization Act, 2014, are worth several thousands of crores. Telangana opposed the demand. Andhra Pradesh also demanded a stake in Singareni Collieries, evoking opposition from Telangana.

Telangana officials expressed unhappiness over Andhra Pradesh moving the courts on issues of the bifurcation act, creating legal complications and stalling the bifurcation of these institutions. He demanded that the Center take steps to get Andhra Pradesh to withdraw the cases and resolve the issues through dialogue.

The Center revealed during the last meeting that Rs 1,500 crore was provided for the development of Amaravati as the state capital of Andhra Pradesh. The state government had asked for another one thousand crore rupees for development works.
