What Akbaruddin did a few weeks ago in Assembly was continued by Asaduddin in Parliament yesterday, but yielding no better results. Though detractors might say that all MIM was looking was at consolidating their position as the only caretakers of the Muslim populace and aim for bigger hold on Hyderabad, the approach they have taken is definitely constructive, especially for Telangana. Asaduddin alone proposed 19 amendments to the T Bill yesterday in parliament, alas, none were accepted.
Here are the major points among what he proposed…
Hyderabad as common capital… there is no provision for a common capital between two states in the Constitution.
Common Governor to both states – unconstitutional again.
Powers to Governor… unconstitutional, does the Center look at Telangana leadership as incapable of governance?
Special High Court to Telangana immediately, the Telangana demand’s main reason was for better opportunities to the locals.
Objection to giving AP Bhavan to Andhra, AP Bhavan was given in exchange of Nizam property.
Pension payments should be done on the basis of Domicile, not on percentage of population.
Special Public Service Commission to Telangana immediately
Pranahita Chevella to be declared national project, this is the only major project to Telangana region, if Polavaram is declared so, why not a similar gesture here?
Singareni Coal for Telangana first, allocation of power to Telangana from unallocated central stock.
Special economic zones in both regions.
Urdu as second language in both states.
