Telangana: Srikrishna Committee concludes Hyderabad visit
The Justice Srikrishna Committee, set up to study the demand for separate Telangana, concluded its three-day visit to Hyderabad on Wednesday by seeking cross-section of views from political parties and different groups.
The committee heard the views of three groups from Telugu Desam, city-based Majlis Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM), the Joint Action Committee espousing the cause of united Andhra Pradesh, a trade and industry body, Telangana Freedom Fighters Forum and Telangana Cultural Association among others.
While the Telugu Desam leaders from Telangana wanted a separate state, those from coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema stressed on the need to keep the state united.
Significantly, MIM, a major force in Hyderabad, strongly argued for keeping the state united failing which it favoured creating a state with Telangana and Rayalaseema.
