Telangana row: GoM completes process of talks with stakeholders

‘We have completed the process of discussions with others. Now the GoM members will meet to discuss among themselves to finalise the report to be submitted to the cabinet as soon as possible,’ home minister Sushil Kumar Shinde said on Monday.

After a series of meetings between the GoM and union ministers from Andhra Pradesh and chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy, Shinde told reporters that the Telangana Bill will be tabled in the winter session of Parliament.

The GoM, headed by Shinde, will meet again on 21 November and is likely to send the report to the union cabinet for consideration by this month end. Sources said following an instruction from Congress high command, the GoM has held a series of meetings with different stake holders, including eight political parties in the last ten days.

Meanwhile, home ministry officials have started compiling reports of different ministries which gave their opinion on distribution of assets and other issues between the new state and the residuary state of Andhra Pradesh.

Once the Cabinet clears the proposal, it will go to the president who in turn will refer it to Andhra Pradesh assembly for approval. However, the assembly resolution is not binding under the Constitution. Government will then prepare Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Bill and with union cabinet’s approval, it will send it to the President before being tabled in Parliament.
