The issue of AP bhavan in New Delhi regarding staff allotment to both the States is at the centre stage and a solution is seen if only Chief Ministers of TS and AP discuss and decide amicably. Staff allotment in AP bhavan has not been decided so far as the Kamalatnathan committee tenure has been extended to October 15, and staff of TS and AP have been working under the same roof. Out of 100 employees, 30 were allotted to Telangana and most of them are class four staff. Andhra staff were allotted to TS despite their option to work in AP. There was no permission even to appoint staff on contract basis. Most of the offices in Telangana were staff less with the result that TS work suffered.
So the work in TS suffered while in AP the administrative work progressed. Things have come to such a pass in Telangana wing that even deputy chief minister Kadiam Srihari the other day found tough time to draft a letter to the HRD ministry. As per bifurcation act, the Centre asked both to divide the buildings based on the census. But the TS government did not agree to it as the buildings belonged to Nizam. All this attracted various allegations and criticism. Two States offices are under one roof. The AP bhavan is spread over 20 acres and seven acres under Pataudi house is vacant.
