V Ramu Sarma Hyderabad: With the Congress High Command contemplating to convene the core committee meeting on Telangana issue in about a fortnight, the three top leaders in the State -- Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy, Deputy Chief Minister Damodar Rajanarasimha and PCC President Botcha Satyanarayana -- are learnt to have started the exercise of preparing separate road- maps on the issue. The PCC chief is yet to start the exercise according to sources close to Botcha. Sources say that the Deputy Chief Minister who would be called to Delhi as special invitee for the core committee meeting has been holding talks with intellectuals from the region on various issues including water sharing, mineral resources, backwardness of BCs in the region, how the region has been discriminated against in all respects by the successive governments, etc. Rajanarsimha is also contemplating to make a power point presentation if the High Command allows him to do so to buttress his argument for bifurcation of the State. This will be the first time that the Deputy Chief Minister would be invited for the core committee meeting. The Chief Minister, sources say, has a greater responsibility as he will have to prepare his report on various issues. He will present a comparative picture about the pros and cons of bifurcation and the immediate problems the government will have to face. Apart from the political advantages and disadvantages of bifurcation, Kiran has been tasked with the responsibility of giving a detailed note on the law and order situation in the event of High Command deciding to bifurcate the State and the contingency plan to maintain law and order. The possibility of suggesting a package for Telangana region as one of the alternatives is also not ruled out. Sources close to Botcha say that he had been holding talks with leaders from both the regions and has been hearing their views. Botcha it is said to have been more in favour of making an oral presentation than giving a written report, sources close to him said. Meanwhile, the Seemandhra leaders led by Minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao held a meeting at Visakhapatnam on Thursday and resolved to reject the proposal of Rayala Telangana and demand the State be kept united. They also propose to tell the High Command that if the State was kept united they will ensure that the party wins 25 Lok Sabha seats in the next elections.
