February 22, 2014 - New Delhi
Union Minister Jairam Ramesh reportedly told the leaders from Telangana who called on him said that it will take at least three months to address the key issues.
Telangana MPs, Ministers and senior leaders who have called on him were told that ' I have gone through all bifurcation processes in the recent past and it took at least three months for creation of new States after the notification.; But in the case of Andhra Pradesh, it has more contentious issues', he said. He expressed surprise that as many as 84,000 government servants would have to be divided between the new States. He said that nowhere in the country has such large number of employees been distributed after bifurcation and all of them have to be accommodated as per their options', said Jairam Ramesh.
Jairam Ramesh said that 'it is the fifth largest city; and no other State will have the privilege when a new State is created to have it as capital. You should understand that Andhra Pradesh State cannot build a word class capital overnight like Hyderabad', reportedly said Jairam Ramesh.
