Telangana note will take time: Kiran Kumar Reddy


Hyderabad: It will take some more time for the note on Telangana prepared by the Union  home ministry to be put before the Union Cabinet for its consideration,  according to Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy who was involved in a  similar exercise when the state government proposed an amendment to the  controversial 14 (F) clause to the Presidential Order two years ago.
Ministers and legislators made anxious by the statement of home minister  Sushilkumar Shinde that the Cabinet note was ready, met the Chief Minister  and were assured that the whole process will take much more time.
The Chief Minister told them that the draft Cabinet note is prepared first  and submitted to the home minister, who will send it to at least 11  ministries, including the law ministry, for their comments within 10 days.  Once the comments are received, the home mi-nistry will prepare a note and  send this to the Cabinet secretary.
After getting approval from him, the same  note will be submitted to the Prime Minister’s Office for the Prime  Minister’s approval.
Only after that will the note be put before the Union Cabinet for its  consideration. All this will take at least a month.
The Chief Minister shared his experience of getting the Union Cabinet to  approve the amendment to Clause 14 (F) related to public employment under the Presidential Order in 1975. He said that even after he appointed a Special  Officer in Delhi exclusively to chase the file’s movement among various  ministries, he had to personally call up the concerned ministers almost every  day to hasten the process.
Kiran Kumar Reddy said he was sure the law ministry would raise the issue  of the AP Assembly resolution on Telangana to avoid legal complications and  the convention the Union government followed in respect of carving out three  states in 2002.
No going back on Telangana: Central brass
More than once the Central Congress leadership has conveyed to the agitating  Union ministers and MPs of the Seemandhra region that it will not go back on  its decision to carve out Telangana and it is up to them to suggest any  alternatives other than seeking a united state.
AICC general-secretary Digvijay Singh, Union minister Manish Tewari, and  AICC spokesperson P.C. Chacko made this clear yet again in the past two  days.
“The CWC decision will be implemented. You better shed your demand for  the united state. It is not going to happen. It is better for you to bargain  for the status of Hyderabad city,”?Mr Digvijay Singh told Seemandhra Union  ministers and MPs during his meeting with them on Thursday night.
When some of the MPs told him that in such case they have no option but to  resign their posts and memberships, Singh reportedly obser-ved, “You can  do anything, but the decision (on Telangana) will not be taken back.”
On Friday, briefing the media, Union information and broadcasting minister Tewari said, “The Centre will not go back on the Telangana statehood  issue.” 
He, however, added that the note on Telangana prepared by the home ministry  did not come up for the Cabinet’s consideration on Friday. “After we get the political nod on the issue, the note will be considered by  the Cabinet in due course,” Tewari said.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
