HYDERABAD: With the Centre, especially Union home ministry, taking time to resolve the disputes between Telangana and AP, both the States are likely to resolve the disputes through direct talks.
The AP government constituted a three-member committee with finance minister Y Ramakrishnudu, youth and sports minister K Atchannaidu and government whip Kalava Srinivasulu.
TS too has decided to constitute a three-member committee headed by irrigation minister T Harish Rao. However, the TS government is yet to issue orders to this effect. “Once CMs of both states have fixed a time, the committees of both the States will hold the first meeting either in Vijayawada or Hyderabad,” an official said.
In view of the inordinate delay by the Centre, CMs N Chandrababu Naidu and K Chandrasekhar Rao have, at a recent meeting at Raj Bhavan, decided to set up the committees.
Accordingly, AP constituted the committee to go into issues arising from the AP Reorganisation Act, 2014. All the inter-state disputes will be resolved, an official felt. In the first meeting, TS may demand handing over the Secretariat buildings in Hyderabad to it. For its part, AP may raise sharing of assets of vari o u s c o r p o r a t i o n s i n Hyderabad.
