KARIMNAGAR: As a rough sketch of the reorganisation of districts in the State is emerging, protests to include or exclude villages in a particular district are increasing. With respect to Karimnagar, there is a view that the district would be trifurcated and the new districts should be Jagitial and Sircilla apart from Karimnagar. 

With the new proposals widely circulated and talked about, people of Ramadugu mandal on Thursday submitted a representation to district collector Neetu Prasad urging her to not allocate their mandal to the proposed Sircilla district.

Meanwhile, people of Gangadhara mandal  staged a protest on Karimnagar-Jagitial highway with a similar demand. They say that if they are included in proposed Sircilla district, their mandal will be far away from the district headquarters.

“Karimnagar is nearer to us than Sircilla and we want our mandal to remain in this district,” they demanded.

Meanwhile, a new district of Jagitial is likely to be carved out with 13 or 14 mandals. With this, real estate agents have reportedly blocked plots and lands anticipating a rise of prices. According to sources, presently, `25 lakh-`30 lakh per gunta is the price of the land.

On the other hand, all party leaders have formed a Revenue Division Sadana Samithi to get a new Metpalli revenue division.

On Thursday, a bandh call was given by Samithi members. Metpalli, Mallapur and Ibrahimpatnam mandals voluntarily observed a bandh demanding Metpalli as a new revenue division.   Ahead of division of districts, authorities have sent proposals to the government create Karimnagar, Sircilla, Ramadugu and Jagitial as urban and rural mandals. Officials are also contemplating creation of new mandals taking villages from Mahadevpur and Kataram.
