Andhra Governor to PM
Andhra Governor's letter to Prime Minister
Centre undecided on headquarters
for Justice Sri Krishna Committee
By R Rajagopalan
Centre is undecided on the Headquarters for
Justice Srikrishna committee to lay roadmap for
formation of Telangana.Whether to have New Delhi,
Mumbai or Hyderabad.
One section in the Union Home Miinistry wanted
Hyderabad while the Chairman Srikrishna wants
Mumbai. Meanwhile strong view is that Hyderabad
should be avoided.
Highly placed sources in Prime Minister office
confirmed to VAARTHA that a confidential
letter from ESL Narasimhan Governor of Andhra
Pradesh suggesting New Delhi should be considered
as Headquarters for Srikrishna Committee.
Governor Narasimhan reasoned that Maoists
might disrupt functioning of the Committee
and a strong suspicion that they may also
physically prevent those who want to depose before
Sri Krishna Committee. Influence of Joint Action
Committe (JAC) would strengthened if Hyderabad
was chosen as Srikrishna Committee's headquarters.
