The baldiya is abuzz with the Greater Hyderabad talk. What will be the shape of things to come, how will the city map look like, the pros and cons - it is loud thinking right from the top officials down to the ministerial staff. However, the corporators whose term is coming to an end on February 10 are none too happy with the development. Some of them are hoping against hope that the Government might ask them to continue till elections are held.

Some corporators are even trying to get permission for a quick "study tour".

Mayor T. Krishna Reddy is not open to the idea. It will not be proper to make such a request at the fag end, he feels.
