The final report has been released today on the Telangana issue. The report is generated by Justice Sri Krishna Committee and the complete judgment report is available at ministry of home affairs official website.
Srikrishna committee suggests 6 options on Telangana statehood demand, with keeping the Andhra Pradesh state unified with legitimate and constitutional measures for empowerment of Telangana region, and also divergence of the state with Telangana and one or the other areas with it.
Telangana is a portion of Andhra Pradesh state in southern India. It comprises Hyderabad, Khammam, Mahaboobnagar, Adilabad, Medak, Nalgonda, Karimnagar, Nizamabad, RangaReddy and Warangal districts.
Home Minister P Chidambaram has called a meeting of political parties from Andhra Pradesh in the Capital today, to talk about the Srikrishna Committee report.
The Srikrishna Report on Telangana has been presented to the political parties from Andhra Pradesh. The report places before the government several options rather than recommendations, with the first option being that of status quo or a united Andhra Pradesh.
Experts point out that in spite of accounting for more than 40% of the geographical area/population and contributing 76 % of the state’s revenue, Telangana accounts for below 30 % of the state’s expenditure.
Prof A Seetaram Naik of Kakatiya University said social change and financial stability would be reflected only in the new T-state.SCs/STs would get a better deal only if a separate state is granted immediately he asserted.
Apart from complaints over industrialization and lack of employments another complaint of the area public is excess supply of irrigation water. Virtually 70 % of the catchments area of the Godavari and Krishna rivers is in Telangana, but the coastal belt reaps the maximum benefit. Our water and resources are being usurped by Andhra people.
They have become rich while we find it difficult to make both ends meet rued Rajireddy a farmer of Huzurabad in Karimnagar district. Citing an instance a farmer’s sangham leader Bhoopal Reddy said though the Krishna water flows through Nalgonda and goes to Vijayawada and Guntur people of Nalgonda do not have access to the water for irrigation. Several mandals do not get potable water while the ground water is high on fluoride content which is harmful to the consumers.
