A look at the new districts likely to be carved out
With chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao likely to announce the formation of new districts on the occasion of Telangana Formation Day on Thursday, the district administration took up a massive exercise to carve out new districts from the existing ones. Though the officials maintained that the last call would be by Rao himself, here is a look at the likely composition of the new districts barring Hyderabad and Rangareddy.
Officials admitted that there is still some confusion about creating new districts out of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. The officials have sent the report to state government on reorganising the district keeping in view administrative convenience. A look at the demands from various quarters on creating districts and what the government is likely to announce.
Two districts likely after reorganisation.
One is the existing Nizamabad and the new one would be Kamareddy. Kamareddy would be carved out with the new district headquarters at Kamareddy. Assembly constituencies of Kamareddy, Yellareddy, Banswada and Jukkal to fall under this new district.
