The Union Home Ministry has wound up the Committee, headed by the former Supreme Court Judge, Justice B.N. Srikrishna, which submitted its report to the Centre after studying the demands of a “separate Telangana” and “united Andhra Pradesh.”
“I have done my work. Now it is for the political parties and the [Central] government to decide. I hope my report will satisfy all sections of people,” Justice Srikrishna told The Hindu from Mumbai on Saturday adding that the Committee's Member-Secretary and former Home Secretary, V.K. Duggal, had been asked to continue in office for one more month.
He replied in the negative when asked whether the government might approach him to get a clarification on a particular recommendation or restudy a particular issue at the end of the proposed discussions with political party representatives.
Mr. Duggal said he had a collection of 1.65 lakh documents and he would be available for any comment or clarification during the January 6 all-party meeting or thereafter.
Meanwhile, Andhra Pradesh Governor E.S.L. Narasimhan reached the Capital to hold discussions with the Home Ministry on the Srikrishna Committee's recommendations and the consequences of implementing them.
