Explaining the need for inclusion of a separate paper on Telangana movement, at a news conference here on Monday, TSPSC chairman Ghanta Chakrapani  said: “It is important that candidates who aspire to a job with Telangana State should be aware of the socio-economic conditions of the new state and the struggle for statehood.”
