Revanth Reddy decides to take back buildings allotted to AP as joint capital tenure ends on June 2

HYDERABAD: As Telangana gears up to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its formation, Chief Minister A. Revanth Reddy decided to take possession of buildings allotted to Andhra Pradesh and resolve other pending issues under the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act of 2014.

This decision was made during a meeting held by the Chief Minister with his cabinet colleagues N. Uttam Kumar Reddy and Ponguleti Srinivasa Reddy, along with officials from various departments, at BR Ambedkar Secretariat on Wednesday.

The Chief Minister directed the relevant officials to prepare a report on all outstanding issues related to the division of assets and debt payments between the two states following the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh. Officials informed the Chief Minister that the division and distribution of assets of organizations and corporations under Schedules 9 and 10 had not yet been completed. Consensus had not been reached on several issues, including the payment of power dues. The Chief Minister inquired about the status of the asset division and the efforts made by the state government to resolve these issues so far.

CM Revanth Reddy instructed officials to amicably resolve the pending transfer and repatriation of employees with their Andhra counterparts. He alerted officials to reconcile and resolve the issues while protecting Telangana's interests.

As the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh completes ten years this year, the Reorganisation Act stipulates that the city of Hyderabad, which has been a joint capital, will become the sole capital of Telangana from June 2. The Chief Minister directed officials to take over buildings, such as Lake View Guest House, allotted to Andhra Pradesh for ten years after June 2.

The CM also instructed officials to submit a comprehensive report on the pending matters under the Reorganisation Act and the issues resolved through consensus between the two states.

A cabinet meeting will be held on May 18 to discuss the pending issues in the State Reorganisation Act and contentious matters with Andhra Pradesh. The meeting would also address the farmers' loan waiver, paddy procurement, and the action plan for the kharif season.

The Chief Minister also reviewed the progress in paddy procurement and directed officials to ensure smooth procurement without causing any inconvenience to the farmers.
