New Delhi, Mar 16 (ANI): The Justice B N Srikrishna Committee formed by the Central Government to initiate steps for the formation of a separate state of Telangana will meet in New Delhi on Thursday to asses the steps forward so far and talk about the responses received with respect to Telangana statehood demand.
The Telangana panel is meeting in New Delhi for the third time. The committee met here earlier on February 13 and issued a public notice inviting political parties and organisations to give their views on the issue of a separate state.
Many political outfits were earlier not in favour of the panel, but now most of them are with the panel and have sent their respective views to it.
The seven pints term of reference announced by the Centre on February 12 has mandated the committee to 'examine the situation in Andhra Pradesh with reference to the demand for a separate state of Telangana as well as the demand for maintaining the present status of united Andhra'.
Even as it indicated paucity of time, the high level committee on Telangana, which met for the first time on February 13, underlined the fact the report would be given well within the prescribed deadline of December 31.
The committee was constituted by the Centre on February 3, nearly two months after it announced that it would initiate steps for the formation of a separate state of Telangana. (ANI)
