Autonomy for Telangana likely
HYDERABAD, Feb 29, 2012, DHNS:

Centre contemplates Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Council model to resolve AP crisis

The United Progressive Alliance (UPA government) is believed to have decided to set up an autonomous Telangana regional council as a permanent solution to the raging demand for statehood.

A special financial package of Rs 20,000 crore is also under the consideration of the Centre, according to Congress sources. Though there is no official confirmation from the government, but political circles in Andhra Pradesh are abuzz with reports that the Congress leadership is in favour of emulating the Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Council model to resolve the Telangana issue.

In fact, the Justice B N Srikrishna Commission, had recommended for the creation of a statutory Telangana regional council to address the core socio-economic concerns of the backward region even while maintaining the unity of Andhra Pradesh.

“This is the most workable option in the given circumstances and in the best interests of the social and economic welfare of people of all the three regions in the state,” a five-member panel said in its report in January last year. (మరింత…)

Congress goes into a huddle on T-council
TIMES NEWS NETWORK, December 11, 2011

New Delhi: The possibility of the Congress high command pushing for the constitution of a Telangana Regional Council as well as similar boards for the two other regions gathered momentum here on Saturday after chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy held talks with party president Sonia Gandhi and AICC general secretary Ghulam Nabi Azad.

Significantly, former minister from Telangana and MLC D Srinivas, who has been summoned by the high command, met the chief minister at AP Bhavan on Saturday afternoon. Srinivas, whose name is being mentioned as a possible chairman of the Telangana Regional Council, rushed to the national capital three days ago and has already held meetings with Sonia and other leaders. In the meantime, in response to the party’s summons, PCC president Botsa Satyanarayana landed here on Saturday morning and is slated to hold talks with the central leaders on Sunday. (మరింత…)
