The Group of Ministers (GoM) looking into issues related to Andhra Pradesh bifurcation has completed consultations with all stakeholders and is expected to submit a report to the Union Cabinet as early as possible. On Monday, it heard the Union Ministers representing all the three regions of the State and Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy.

The GoM has been mandated to look into a whole range of complex issues including determination of the boundaries of State of Telangana and the residuary State of Andhra Pradesh with reference to the electoral constituencies, judicial and statutory bodies, and other administrative units.

“We have completed discussions with others. Now the GoM members will meet to discuss among themselves to finalise the report to be submitted to the Cabinet as soon as possible,” Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said.

The GoM, headed by Mr. Shinde, is expected to meet on November 21 and is likely to send the report to the Cabinet by this month-end. The Centre intends to introduce and get the Constitutional Amendment Bill approved to create Telangana in the coming winter session of Parliament.
