The process of state bifurcation had already commenced, and it could not be stopped, rural development minister Dokka Manikya Vara Prasad has said.

In an informal chat with reporters at the Secretariat on Thursday, he said some people were saying that the division would be stopped. It was nothing but deceiving the people, he said. If the government issued a GO, it could not be cancelled and only amendments would be made to it.  He said that farmers and farm labour would face some problems after the division and he would submit a detailed report to the GoM on the matter. He wanted the Centre to reorganise the districts post-division. “Each Lok Sabha seat in Seemandhra should be made a new district,” he demanded.

TGOs’ Demand: At a separate press conference, TGO  Association leader Srinivas Goud said they were not for Article 371(D). Employees comprise only one p.c of the total Telangana population.  ‘‘Once the state is divided, then the employees may think of their problems like continuing the zonal system,” Goud said.
