Centre braces for Srikrishna report
Aarti Dhar, The Hindu, New Delhi, December 29, 2010
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Wednesday held a meeting with senior Cabinet colleagues ahead of the Justice B.N. Srikrishna committee submitting its report on Telangana. The panel’s term ends on Friday.
The meeting, attended by Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee, Home Minister P. Chidambaram, Defence Minister A.K. Antony and Law Minister M. Veerappa Moily, discussed the options available and the political fall-out in case the demand for a separate State was accepted, official sources said.
It also discussed the security arrangements for Andhra Pradesh to meet any law and order situation. The Centre has sent 5,000 security personnel to the State to deal with any emergency.
The five-member committee led by Justice Srikrishna is likely to suggest “several options with their pros and cons” on the statehood issue. Justice Srikrishna, a former Supreme Court judge, had on Tuesday expressed the hope that the report would bring about a permanent solution to the issue relating to bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh.

V Anand Kumar, Indian Express, 26 Dec 2010
NEW DELHI: Keeping its promise to stick to the given timeframe, the Srikrishna Committee will submit its report to the Centre on the Telangana tangle at 5 pm on Dec. 31. According to sources, Union home minister P Chidambaram has given an appointment to the committee on the evening of Dec. 31 to submit the report.
Sources said the committee’s member-secretary V K Duggal will brief the media on Jan. 4 on the salient features of the report.
Sources said the committee has finalized a 600-page report on Friday evening after a Herculean task of going through 1.25 lakh representations from separatist and integrationist groups.
Sources said the report would be a mere prism of the representations and that it has not recommended any clear-cut solution to the Telangana tangle. They said the committee had analysed several issues such as water, economy, share of resources and gave several options for the Centre in order to help in preparing a roadmap for the future.

The Economic Times, 26 Dec 2010
HYDERABAD: Telangana Rashtra Samithi chief K. Chandrasekhara Rao has said that he is ready to merge his party with the Congress if a separate Telangana state is formed.
Rao also said that he would worship Congress President Sonia Gandhi if she initiated the process of creating the state.
“If she (Sonia Gandhi) gives Telangana state hood then I would greet her and would wash her feet and worship her and we want Telangana only,” Rao said on Saturday.
“You have told that if Telangana will come then K. Chandrasekhara Rao will end. I am ready to end. Telangana is important,” he added.
Earlier, on December 9, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had protested in New Delhi to demand a Bill for a separate Telangana State. (మరింత…)

Students not waiting for Srikrishna report
Vikram Sharma, Express News Service, 24 December 2010
WARANGAL: Even in the most placid of times, Kakatiya University (KU) is like a gun cocked. It can go off any time.
On Thursday, as the whole of the State waits for the Srikrishna Committee report, it is a bit disconcerting to hear KU students say they are not exactly spending sleepless nights over it.
Sipping chai at the campus canteen, LL.M. student Vinod retorts warmly to the idea that Srikrishna will find a solution to the question convulsing the State. “We know what the report is going to say,” he says as heads look up from the tea cups.
“It will say that all the three regions (Telangana, Andhra and Rayalaseema) are backward and that they all need funds for development.’’ His classmate Jayaprasad joins in. “Why are we even discussing Srikrishna? This is not about Srikrishna. This is about Telangana.’’
Like the stock market analysts, KU students discount what is popularly anticipated and plan a step ahead. The Srikrishna D-Day is only notional for the end of a ceasefire and resumption of hostilities.
“Who’s bothered about Srikrishna?’’ says Vemula Ranjit. “All we want is steps towards Telangana starting from Jan 1. We don’t want to know what suggestions the committee has.’’ (మరింత…)
