WARANGAL: After Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao recently announced that the name of Warangal (Urban) district will be changed to Hanamkonda and Warangal (Rural) district will become Warangal, as per requested by various TRS public representatives, the district administration officials are now focused on preparing a draft report to this regard that will be submitted to the State government in one to two days. The officials said that they are also considering shuffling a few mandals due to population issue in the two districts.
