Assaduddin first in row to meet GoM

Hyderabad,  The representatives of recognised parties from Andhra Pradesh would meet the Group of Ministers (GoM), constituted on the issue of state bifurcation, today and tomorrow.

Parties, scheduled to meet GoM in the morning session on Tuesday are:

MIM  represented by Assauddin Owasi from 11 to 11:30 a.m.

He told reporters after the meeting that Hyderabad as common capital or union territory was not acceptable to his party. He also explained to GoM that keeping law and order in Hyderabad and other subjects with the centre would be unconstitutional.

He demanded that a part of Hyderabad be made an interim capital of the two states with a clear timeframe to develop a new capital of Seemandhra.

The MIM chief, who submitted a supplementary memorandum to GoM,  termed as 'absolute rubbish' that Seemandhra (Rayalaseema and coastal Andhra) people living in Hyderabad would face a threat after bifurcation.

Demanding protection for Muslims and Christians in Telangana, Owaisi claimed that they and not Seemandhra people face threat as Sangh Parivar and BJP would grow stronger in the separate state.

State BJP president G Kishan Reddy, along with another leader K Haribabu will meet GoM from 11:30 to 12 O clock. 

Kishan Reddy while talking to media people after the meeting said they made it clear that BJP stand for formation of Telangana state comprising 10 districts with Hyderabad as the capital.

They also wanted the centre to allay apprehensions of Seemandhra people. Reddy was accompanied by Haribabu, a party leader from Seemandhra.

Kishan Reddy also wanted to know from GoM why they were seeking opinion of other parties without the ruling Congress party and the central government spelling out their stand.

 

CPI supports separate Telangana and its representatives are state secretary K Narayana and J Wilson will meet GoM from 12 to 12 : 30 p.m.

CPI, which is also supporting formation of Telangana state, suggested a separate mechanism to maintain law and order in Hyderabad till a permanent capital for Seemandhra is developed.

CPI leader Narayana said they called for setting up development councils for development of Rayalaseema and north coastal Andhra regions and an expert committee for sharing of river water.

Parties to meet GoM in the evening session:
The ruling Congress will be represented by Deputy Chief Minister C Damodar Rajanarsimha, who hails from Telangana region, and state Tourism Minister V Vasant Kumar, who belongs to coastal Andhra.

TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao, who would represent his party along with K Keshav Rao will meet GoM at 5.30 pm.

Parties, scheduled to meet GoM tomorrow are:
YSR Congress, which supports united Andhra, would be represented by its leaders M V Mysoora Reddy and Gattu Ramachandra Rao, the party said in a release.

CPI(M) state secretary B V Raghavulu said his party would highlight the problems of backward areas, though his party is in favour of united Andhra. He along with Julakanti Rangareddy, will take part in the meeting with GoM.

The GoM, which has been set up to look into the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh, would meet eight political parties of Andhra Pradesh separately on November 12 and 13 as well as union ministers from Andhra Pradesh on November 18, to discuss related issues.
