HYDERABAD: The state government is examining the issue of creating new districts in the state, deputy chief minister M Mahmood Ali has said. Replying to a question in the Assembly here on Wednesday, he said a committee headed by chief secretary is looking into the re-organisation of the existing 10 districts in the state.
The government would take an appropriate decision after receiving the committee’s report and holding consultations with all the political parties concerned, he added.
