Hyderabad:Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao has convened a meeting with district collectors on September 6 to discuss these issues and advise officials on the precautions they need to take before issuing final notification. This is to ensure that the new districts are not stuck in legal dispute, enabling their smooth launch on Dasara as planned.
The state government is treading a cautious path on issuing final notification for the creation of new districts by this month-end. This follows intense protests in some places against some of the new districts notified in the preliminary notification released in August.
Several Opposition leaders and civil organisations are planning to move the High Court against new districts, once the final notification is issued. The protesters and Opposition leaders allege that the new districts lack scientific-basis and are being created solely on political grounds.
The government is expected to take all these factors into consideration before issuing final notification in the last week of this month. The Chief Minister said hthat e would inaugurate the new districts in the state on Dasara, launching Siddipet district on October 11. Ministers in respective districts would launch new districts on the same day.
