Making a strong demand to keep the State united, the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) President Asaduddin Owaisi said that in the event of bifurcation, Anantapur and Kurnool districts should be merged with the Telangana State. Addressing media persons here on Thursday while releasing a 49-page document which was submitted to the GoM, Owaisi expressed surprise over the manner in which all parties were talking about the status of Hyderabad, its future and the safety of Seemandhra people. He said it was unfortunate that none of the parties was talking about the future of Muslims, Christians and Dalits, who would be the losers in the event of the division. He reiterated that the bifurcation of the State would help the BJP and RSS. He strongly opposed any move to accord Union Territory status to Hyderabad.
The MIM president said that there was no question of accepting Centre’s control over law and order, municipal administration, revenue and land administration and higher education and medicare in Hyderabad during the period when the city would be the joint capital for both the states.
He said MIM was opposed to the concept of joint capital. He suggested Khairatabad mandal in city could be designated as the common area to serve as a temporary working capital for the Residuary State.
He said the Centre should decide about the location of the new capital for the residuary state and include it in the AP Reorganisation Bill so that the work on the new capital could start immediately.
Owaisi further said that MIM would attend the All- Party meeting convened by Union Home Ministry and will insist on other important demands, like granting the status of first language to Urdu along with Telugu in the new State of Telangana, national project status for Pranahita-Chevella Lift Irrigation Scheme, enactment of Prevention of Communal Violence legislation in the two states, separate High Court for the residuary state of Andhra Pradesh and handing over of AP Bhavan in New Delhi to Telangana.
