Centre likely to concede Telangana state in two or three months : KCR

September 28, 2011

Telangana Rashtra Samithi president K Chandrasekhar Rao said that the Centre is likely to concede a separate Telangana state in the next two or three months. Speaking at an informal chat with the media at the Telangana Bhavan, KCR said that he has reliable information that the Central Government is exploring the possibility of tagging Kurnool and Anantapur districts with the Telangana state.

Chandrasekhar Rao said that proposal was discussed by Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi during their meeting Tuesday. KCR said that the MIM is not opposed to having Anantapur and Kurnool in Telangana state as they have sizable Muslim population. He said that Hyderabad is the only issue in hand at present for the Centre. The Central Government are contemplating on whether to include Hyderabad in the Telangana state or to make it a Union Territory. He also said that the Centre ruled out trifurcation of the state as an option.

Addressing a meeting of non-teaching staff of private colleges, KCR warned that a Telangana state without Hyderabad is not acceptable to them. He said that the ongoing 'Sakala Janula Samme' would come to an end only with the formation of the Telangana state.
