Will conclude consultations by Jul 2010: 'T' panel

Written by: Staff

Hyderabad, Feb 24: The Srikrishna Committee on Telangana issue has made it clear that it would conclude consultations with key stakeholders by Jul 2010.

V K Duggal, member-secretary of the five-member Committee, said, "We will get enough material to give a balanced report."

The committee asked the Joint Action Council (JAC), spearheading the agitation for a separate state, not to boycott it.

"The proof of the pudding is in its eating. I am 100 per cent sure that when the people see the intention, even those who are boycotting...Once they see the purpose, I have no doubt we will get enough material to give a balanced report," he said.

When asked how the Committee would take the views of those who are boycotting, Duggal said, "The voices will be counted as good response has already come.

"We have received 50 memoranda so far since Feb 20 when the public notice was issued. It is your option. I cannot force you. Once the intent of the Committee is known, the responses will be forthcoming," he said.

A fresh public notice could also be issued, with the approval of the Chairman of the Committee, Justice B N Srikrishna, for seeking responses, he said.

The Committee will start holding consultations with various groups and political parties from the middle of next month in Hyderabad and other places on the issue of a separate Telangana state.
