This aside, there has been no major objections to the new districts proposed by the TS government. The proposals resulted in over 1,325 suggestions /objections being received within 24 hours of being put on public domain. Of these, over 800 were related to formation of new districts and the remaining were over creation of new revenue divisions and mandals.
As anticipated, there has been a flood of objections /suggestions pouring from people over the state government not creating Gadwal, Jangaon and Siricilla districts. People belonging to various organisations expressed their resentment over the non-creation of Jangaon, Gadwal and Sircilla districts. People also objected to the draft proposals on inclusion of their areas in Wanaparthy, Peddapally, Nirmal and Yadadri districts.
As many as 246 objections were received from Warangal which has been split into four districts, with main objection over inclusion of Jangaon in Yadadri district.
Similarly, of the 303 objections over creation of new revenue divisions, 205 were related only to Jagtiyal revenue division which has been new district headquarters, splitting the existing Karimnagar district.
Later, the Cabinet subcommittee will scrutinise them and come out with final draft before going ahead with formation of new districts, revenue divisions and revenue mandals. A team of officials will scan the objections as and when received and prepare necessary inputs for the subcommittee.
According to a senior official, the government website specially created for the purpose, http://newdistrictsformation.telangana.gov.in, will receive all objections/suggestions on the draft proposals for one month.
