The Telangana Congress Monitoring Group felt that Hyderabad should not be the joint capital for 10 long years as it would result in several problems including logistic, economic, social and emotional.
A report prepared by Rajya Sabha MP Rapolu Ananda Bhaskar, to be submitted to the Group of Ministers (GoM), felt that if Hyderabad continues to be the joint capital for such a long period then people from the residuary State would have to travel 200Km to reach their administrative centre and that would be a great insult to them.
The report said that the Centre should bifurcate the State without any further delay.
It demanded that the process of carving out a separate State should be completed during the Winter session of Parliament. It further added that nothing short of Telangana consisting of 10 districts with Hyderabad as Capital would be acceptable.
Opposing the demand for transfer of Bhadrachalam to the residuary State, the report said that the temple town was part of Hyderabad-Golconda dynasty and was part of Telangana and hence the Centre should not create new problems by transferring it to the residuary State. It also urged the GoM to go through the data available with them in regard to the injustice meted out to the region and do full justice and accord statehood accordingly. It felt that the people in Seemandhra region need not have any apprehensions about water sharing, finances and other resources. It said the issue of water sharing could be resolved by constituting a water tribunal.
