Will Amendments be added to Telangana Bill ?


t-bill-amendmentsHyderabad: India is all set to get its 29th state, Telangana. As per reports, Congress and BJP have reached an understanding on the issue.

Senior BJP leader M.Venkaiah Naidu said that they would fight for corrections in AP Reorganisation Bill – 2013. It is reported that the centre will make a statement on assurances like special package for Seemandhra region, among others.

It is reported that the centre has given a written assurance to BJP leaders on some other issues like tax exemption and others.

BJP has agreed for the promise of  a statement by the prime minister in the house on these assurances. However, BJP may not be so firm on Bill corrections after all, as the bill will have to get the approval of Lok Sabha again if the corrections are made.

The Centre should lower the time for keeping Hyderabad as common capital for three years instead of 10 years

Powers on Hyderabad should be vested with the Telangana Chief Minister

A new building for High Court should be constructed for Telangana within three months after creation of the new State

Centre should identify the employees on the basis of their local area certificates because the Telangana State will not bear the burden of     Seemandhra employees

The Centre should divide the Public Sector institutions on the basis of their assets and Head of departments, Zonal Gazatted Officers         should be allotted to the region where they worked for more years.

MIM party

Khairatabad revenue mandal area in the city of Hyderabad should be the interim capital of the State of Andhra Pradesh for a period not
exceeding two years.

After expiry of the period, Hyderabad shall be the sole capital of the State of Telangana and there shall be a new capital for the State of
Andhra Pradesh.

Choice of the new capital should be done expeditiously so that preparatory work can be started for a permanent capital for the residuary
State in its own territory at the earliest. “We would rather suggest that the Central government should decide the new capital for the residuary
State and incorporate this provision in the AP Reorganisation Bill itself

Objection to common Governor both the State as it would make him a “Super Governor”

AP Bhavan to be the asset of Telangana State.
