HYDERABAD: Telangana State, which was formed with 10 districts, in all probabilities will be reorganized to 31 districts. This means the state government is planning to carve out four more districts from its earlier proposal to reorganize the state into 27 districts.

The new four districts that will be created are Sircilla, Jangaon, Gadwal and Asifabad.

Though, the state issued draft notification for creation of 17 new districts taking the total districts in the state to 27, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has decided to consider the demands for Sircilla, Jangaon, Gadwal and Asifabad.

Rao, for the second consecutive day, held discussions with the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) leaders on Monday. During the discussions, the CM announced that a high power committee would be constituted on the leadership of MP K Keshava Rao to study the possibilities of the formation of Sircilla, Jangaon and Gadwal. When MLA Kova Lakshmi requested Rao for Asifabad district, he accepted to it also. 
Accordingly, 20 mandals in Adilabad, 13 mandals in Komurumbheem, 15 mandals in Asifabad and 16 mandals in Nirmal district are proposed.

"We will create the new districts once the state government issue directions. It will be a matter of two to three days. All the 31 new districts will start functioning from Dasara," a top official in Revenue department told Express.

According to officials, there is no need for issuing the notification for the four new districts, as they are being carved out based on the suggestions or objections received on the draft notification of new districts. "We need some minor changes in adjusting the staff for the proposed three new districts," an official explained.

RAJANNA & BHADRADRI DISTRICTS: Going by his religious sentiments, the CM wanted the officials to examine the proposal to name the proposed Sricilla as Rajanna district. Sri Rajarajeswara Swamy was a
famous temple in Vemulawada in Karimnagar, which will now fall under Sircilla district. 

Likewise, proposed Kothagudem district will be named after Bhadradri Kothagudem district. Bhadradri is the abode of Lord Rama. It may be recalled that in Nalgonda, one of the new districts is named after Yadadri, the abode of Narasimha.

Meanwhile, Rao hoped that by 2022 the State budget size would be around 5 lakh core and all the irrigation projects would be completed then. The smaller districts would help better administration, Rao said. This would help district collectors to focus on each family in the district, Rao said. Rao averred that TRS would retain power in 2019 Assembly elections too.
