The 6 member panel with its report hoped to end the regional turmoil that have been searing in the minds of many in Andhra Pradesh for the last 54 years.
The salient features of the report are -
- The bifurcation of AP into Seemandhra (rest of Andhra) and Telangana region with Hyderabad considered as Union territory.
- The bifurcation of AP into Rayal Telanagana and Coastal Andhra with Hyderabad falling in the Rayal Telangana region. Enlarged Hyderabad being the capital here.
- Both bifurcated regions to have its own capital. Splitting of Hyderabad is considered the last option if there is no other way out.
- Possible formation of Regional Telangana Council.
- The panel has suggested maintaining status quo in the region. This is with reference to the central govt dealing with the volatile situation due to the Telangana problem. Reference has been made to the growing Maoist menace in the region as well that could worsen the present situation.
- The report also suggested that the Chief Minister and the Deputy Chief Minister be from the Telangana region so that the issues facing the region could be better represented. Also, if the CM is from the T-region then the Dy CM could be from the other and vice-versa.
- The other option that seem to be the most "workable" according to opinions from various party representatives is the creation of a 'United Andhra' with separate constitutional measures for Telangana.
The all-party meeting called by the Home Minister was boycotted by the major players who were rooting for Telangana like the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS), Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and the BJP.
