Massive agitation in sight as congress plans autonomous regional council for Telangana
A Srinivasa Rao, Mail Today, Hyderabad, August 19, 2012

The Congress high command is mulling over the proposal of constituting an autonomous Telangana Regional Council a solution to the contentious Telangana issue in Andhra Pradesh. Having realized that the indecisiveness in taking a decision on the Telangana demand has cost the party heavily in the state, the Congress leadership is understood to be working on the proposal for autonomous regional council for Telangana, on the lines of Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Council, which has recently transformed into Gorkhaland Territorial Administration with considerable autonomy for the local tribes.

An empowered Telangana regional council is part of the sixth option recommended by the Justice BN Srikrishna Committee in December 2010 as the best way forward on the Telangana issue. According to the committee, the regional council would be equipped with adequate funds, functions and functionaries. It would be headed by a legislator with cabinet rank and would provide a legislative consultative mechanism for subjects like planning and economic development, water and irrigation, education, skill development and vocational education, local administration and public health.

Special Correspondent, The Hindu December 11, 2011

TRS denies having been consulted by Congress on the Telangana issue

The Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) has denied that it was consulted by the Congress high command in a bid to resolve the separate Telangana issue.

Talking to mediapersons here on Saturday, the party MLA T. Harish Rao condemned reports that the Congress leaders in New Delhi were in touch with the TRS president K. Chandrasekhar Rao. He warned the Congress that the TRS will not remain quiet if it came up with any package or development council or the States Reorganisation Commission as an alternative to statehood. (మరింత…)

No Telangana for now
Jinka Nagaraju, TNN, March 6, 2011

HYDERABAD: Though this may give a fillip to the Telangana agitations, the UPA government is veering around to the view that a new state at this juncture is a strict no-no. The favoured opinion is to accept the sixth option formulated by the Srikrishna Committee, which is to maintain status quo while empowering the Telangana region by creating a Telangana Regional Council.

Highly-placed sources told STOI that an announcement to this effect might be made after Parliament passes the finance Bill. But before any announcement, home minister P Chidambaram will hold another all-party meeting with the 8 political parties concerned to forge a consensus on this option, the sources revealed.

“The UPA government is inclined to go with the sixth option suggested by the Srikrishna Committee as it expects major opposition only from the TRS. However, the steps needed to counter a possible agitation by the pro-Telangana parties including the TRS, BJP and CPI in the event of the Centre going with the sixth option is still being worked out,” the sources added.
