Mon, Jun 20, 2016, 06:44 PM
Much to the delight of the Chief Minister, the Collectors of the existing 10 districts in Telangana prepared a draft plan to increase the number of districts to 26, while K Chandrasekhar Rao wanted 24 or 25, according to reliable sources.

The Draft Plan prepared as per the Chief Minister’s direction has gone through the lens of chief secretary Rajiv Sharma here on Monday. The Chief Minister is likely to take a final call at a two-day Collectors conference that began today.

The key announcement about the number of districts, to come out by Dasara festival, is most likely to be made by KCR on June 21 when the Collectors conference concludes.

During a high-level review meeting with the Collectors at Secretariat here, the Chief Secretary discussed the need for reorganization of the districts for administrative ease and smooth governance.

On receiving the reports of new districts from the Collectors, the Chief Secretary reportedly gave his nod with some changes followed by appeals, requests from various sections of people and leaders irrespective of the parties.

According to reports, there are protests by people, political parties and people's organizations on the issue in various districts and towns. The people mostly are demanding that the state government should desist from making an attempt to include them in a far-off district headquarters.

The new districts will be formed by Dasara along with the reorganization of mandals and divisions.
