Hyderabad: Telangana JAC is in no mood to compromise with the status of Hyderabad, come what may. In its report to be sent to Group of Ministers (GoM), Telangana JAC said that they would accept Hyderabad as a ‘functional capital’ for the residuary state in order to carry on its administrative activities. JAC is vehemently opposing the proposal of sharing Hyderabad as capital for ten years, which would indirectly affect the growth of new capital of the residuary state.
Telangana JAC held a five-hour long meeting at Telangana Film Chamber of Commerce office in Secunderabad on Thursday for finalising the report to be sent to GoM. Discussions were held on individual reports prepared on terms of reference (ToR) included in the cabinet note. Apart from members of JAC steering committee including chairman Prof. Kodandaram, representatives from TRS, BJP and CPI(ML-ND) also attended the meeting. The inputs and suggestions emerged from the meeting would be incorporated in the final report which would be sent on Friday.
Sources informed that the stand to be adopted by the TJAC regarding the status of Hyderabad took centre-stage at the meeting. The think tank of the JAC sought more clarifications on Hyderabad. It would not have a problem if Hyderabad was looked at as place for administration purposes. It even suggested part of Secunderabad Cantonment Board or Hitech city or a film studio in city outskirts could be rented out to the Seemandhra administration so that all government offices could be located in a single location. However, if the Centre or the Seemandhra community wants control over Hyderabad by taking key departments under its control, TJAC vowed to oppose it, tooth and nail.
The meeting extensively discussed on irrigation, power, education, health and Article-371(d) matters. TRS senior leader B Vinod Kumar explained that just a ‘textual amendment’ was enough to sort out the Article 371(d) issue. The disparity in number of educational institutions (engineering, medical, aided colleges and health universities) also came up for mention in this report, sources informed. Meanwhile TJAC has sought a lending hand from the Centre in power sector for meeting the demand in new Telangana state.
