The President releases commemorative postal
stamp to mark 175th Anniversary of Times of India
The President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee released a commemorative
postal stamp at an event organised on the occasion of the 175th anniversary of
the Times of India today (November 13, 2013) at Rashtrapati Bhavan.
Speaking on the occasion, the President referred to the statement by the
Managing Director of the Times Group that it has no political master and no
hidden agenda and said let that be the motto of this great institution.
The President recalled how Times of India has documented every twist and
turn of India’s history. It reported on the coronation of Queen Victoria as the
empress of India. It welcomed the formation of the Indian National Congress
in 1885 with the following words: “Surely, never had so important and
comprehensive an assemblage occurred in recent times on the soil of India.”

Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev’s valiant struggle of 1931 was extensively
covered. The Times of India reported how Bhagat Singh never appealed for
mercy. The only petition the freedom fighter moved before the judge was a
plea that he be shot and not hanged. The judge was taken aback and ‘You call
that a petition for mercy’. The President pointed out that the Times of India
reported every step of the political reforms that preceded the Indian Constitution.
It was also there as India created and adopted the Constitution. It covered the
arrival of the telegram, and also reported on the day that the last telegram was
sent.
The President concluded complimenting the Times of India and the Department
of Posts for having chosen RK Laxman’s Common Man as the subject of the
stamp and theme of the 175th anniversary. He also paid tribute to all the Editors
and journalists who have shaped the newspaper and created its path for the
future. Minister for Communications and Information Technology Shri Kapil
Sibal also attended the function.

The President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee inaugurated the 40th Jawaharlal
Nehru National Science, Mathematics and Environment Exhibition (JNNSMEE)
on the occasion of National Education Day today, (November 11, 2013) at
Gangtok, Sikkim. Speaking on the occasion, the President said this day is
celebrated to commemorate the birth anniversary of the first Education
Minister of India, Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, a great visionary, freedom
fighter, scholar, and eminent educationist. He recalled that addressing the
Conference on All India Education on January 16, 1948, Maulana Azad
observed “We must not for a moment forget, it is the birth right of every
individual to receive at least the basic education without which he cannot

fully discharge his duties as a citizen.” The President said
Science, Technology and Innovation is the key to progress and
prosperi t y for our nat i on. Our fi rst Pri me Mi ni st er Pandi t
Jawaharlal Nehru once observed “It is scientific method alone
that offers hope to mankind and ending of the agony of the world.”
The President said the central theme of this year’s exhibition, “Science and
Society”, is an occasion to reflect on the issues and problems our society is
facing. There is a need to make our children aware of the nexus between problems
like unchecked population growth and energy crisis, depletion of natural
resources, pollution of the environment, and so on. It is extremely important to
inculcate the ethos of science and mathematics in the minds of our young students
who are the future scientists and technologists of this nation.
The President called upon young participants to regard the five elements
of life: Earth, Water, Energy, Space and Air as something that we have
inherited and that we have to pass on to the next generation. We have no
right to squander or pollute them because we do not own them.
The President said innovation will be a determining factor of growth in the
future. India has dedicated 2010-20 as the Decade of Innovation. The Science,
Technology and Innovation Policy, unveiled this year, calls for mentoring
grassroots innovation. The President said his vision was that India should
become a knowledge power in the coming decade wherein every Indian is
literate and has access to affordable, quality education.

“The traffic between Manali and Keylong was restored,” Col. Yogesh Nair,
commander of the 38 Task Force of General Reserve Engineering Force
(GREF) here, told IANS. GREF is a wing of the Border Roads Organisation
which maintains forward areas of the country.Nair said the road stretches
near the Rohtang Pass had snow accumulation up to four feet.He advised the
motorists not to cross the pass early morning or late afternoon, as the thick
layer of ice is surfacing due to extremely low temperature.
Officials said the dedicated men of GREF worked in a temperature which was
15 degrees Celsius below the freezing point to re-open the traffic on snow-
marooned Rohtang Pass located at 3,978 metres in the Pir Panjal mountain range,
51 km from here. The pass is the gateway to Keylong from Manali in Kullu
district, but it remains unreachable from rest of the country for over five months
due to heavy snowfall on the road. Nair said there was record snowfall in the
region this season and the snow-clearing operation was a herculean task.

Supplementary Orbit Raising Manoeuvre
Planned for Mars Orbiter Spacecraft
In the fourth orbit-raising operation conducted this morning (Nov 11, 2013),
the apogee (farthest point to Earth) of Mars Orbiter Spacecraft was raised
from 71,623 km to 78,276 km by imparting an incremental velocity of 35
metres/second (as against 130 metres/second originally planned to raise apogee
to about 100,000 [1 lakh] km). The spacecraft is in normal health. A
supplementary orbit-raising operation is planned tomorrow (November 12,
2013) at 0500 hrs IST to raise the apogee to nearly 1 lakh km.
During the orbit-raising operations conducted since November 7, 2013, ISRO
has been testing and exercising the autonomy functions progressively, that are
essential for Trans-Mars Injection (TMI) and Mars Orbit Insertion (MOI).
During the first three orbit-raising operations, the prime and redundant chains
of gyros, accelerometers, 22 Newton attitude control thrusters, attitude and
orbit control electronics as well as the associated logics for their fault detection
isolation, and reconfiguration have been exercised successfully. The prime and
redundant star sensors have been functioning satisfactorily. The primary coil of
the solenoid flow control valve was used successfully for the first three orbit-
raising operations.
During the fourth orbit-raising operations held today (November 11, 2013),
the redundancies built-in for the propulsion system were exercised, namely,
(a) energising the primary and redundant coils of the solenoid flow control
valve of 440 Newton Liquid Engine and (b) logic for thrust augmentation by
the attitude control thrusters, when needed. However, when both primary and
redundant coils were energised together, as one of the planned modes, the
flow to the Liquid Engine stopped. The thrust level augmentation logic, as
expected, came in and the operation continued using the attitude control
thrusters. This sequence resulted in reduction of the incremental velocity.
While this parallel mode of operating the two coils is not possible for subsequent
operations, they could be operated independently in sequence.

DMRC pitches for Lucknow Metro work
Lucknow, Nov 9 : The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has
assured to complete the work on the first phase of the Lucknow Metro
Rail project by February 2017, if it was assigned the task, officials said.
DMRC Managing Director Mangu Singh said in a presentation made before
Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav Friday that they would wind up work on the
first phase between Amausi airport and Alambagh by February 2017.
He, however, told the Uttar Pradesh government that the DMRC would
begin work only after its board clears it. It is likely to meet Feb 8.
The DMRC team also said that if the work was handed over to them on a
turn-key basis, it would begin work Jan 25, 2014 and a trial run will begin
on the Amausi-Alambagh route by February of 2017.
Trial runs on the second phase - Alambagh to Munshipulia will be conducted by
February 2019, Mangu Singh said. On a turn-key based project, as in Kochi
and Rajasthan, the DMRC will charge 6 percent of the total cost as its fee. The
metro rail project in Lucknow is top priority for the state government and is
being personally overseen by the chief minister. The Uttar Pradesh cabinet
had given a go ahead to the first phase of the project to be built in the capital
June 27, work on which would commence in December, including building
Amausi-Alambagh, Alambagh-Mahanagar and Mahanagar to Munshipulia
routes. The north-south corridor between Amausi Airport to Munshipulia
will be 22.87 km, out of which 19.43 km would be elevated, while 3.44 km
will be underground. The east-west corridor between Lucknow railway station
Vasantkunj is 11.09 km long. A total of 34 stations will be built.

Fake hotel reviews online cheating
people: Study
Sydney, Nov. 11 : Fake hotel reviews are becoming common these
days and travellers are advised to not rely on the content, a new
research has found.
The research released by CHOICE, whose head of Media Tom Godfrey
said that the boom in hotel review sites has given rise to the practice of
‘astroturfing’ or the writing of fake reviews by companies to promote their
own accommodation, news.com.au reports.
According to the report, in the United States, the New York Attorney
General recently levied hefty fines on 19 companies that wrote fake online
reviews and created fake online profiles for businesses.
The report found that although the rate of fake reviews has risen, people still
trust user-generated content more than editorial content, advertisements,
marketing and government tourist websites.
CHOICE’s tips for spotting fake reviews:
***: Check reviews about the same business from different sources.
***: Keep an eye out for telltale signs of fakery such as a sudden increase
in positive or negative reviews over a short time frame that is out of synch
with earlier reviews.
***: Beware of reviews that are allegedly from different people but are
suspiciously similar in tone and style.
***: A one-star rating by a reviewer for a five-star hotel should be
regarded with suspicion.

Manipur explores air connectivity
with Myanmar
By Raymond Kharmujai, Imphal, Nov 12 : In what could serve as a
boost to India’s ‘Look East’ policy, the Manipur government is exploring
the possibility of direct flights operating to Myanmar, even as private
carrier Golden Myanmar begins operating flights Nov 21 to the Tulihal
airport here.
“We are exploring the possibility of a direct flight to Myanmar after the civil
aviation ministry elevated Tulihal as an international airport,” Principal Secretary
(Commerce and Industries) O. Nabakishore Singh told IANS.
“We are already in a dialogue with (private Indian airline) Indigo to start a
service between Tulihal and Yangon,” Nabakishore Singh told IANS. Indigo
was, however, yet to respond. “If we cannot operate direct flights with our
neighbouring country then declaring Tulihal as an international airport would be
just in name,” Nabakishore Singh said, while stressing that connectivity would
help the people of Manipur and Myanmar in trade, medical treatment and tourism.
“With Guwahati international airport already having direct flights with Bhutan
and Thailand, I am sure Manipur will soon become a significant regional hub for
international flights to Southeast Asian countries,” Manipur Chief Minister Okram
Ibobi Singh said. Moreover, he said, introduction of flights between Imphal and
Monywa, Imphal and Mandalay, Imphal and Yangon and Imphal and Kalemyo
would promote trade, tourism, business and investment. Ibobi singh said that
the flights would facilitate movement of people round the year. The silver lining
is that a Golden Myanmar A-320 from Mandalay will land at Tulihal Nov 21 on
a trial run with the Mandalay Region Chief Minister Ye Myint and his Sagaing
Region counterpart Tha Aye on board.The 24 delagates from Myanmar would
attend Manipur’s Sangai Festival, an annual cultural event. “It will be a trial
operation for Golden Myanmar to Tulihal airport. We are all keeping our fingers
cross and hoping that our dream of connecting Manipur with Myanmar by air
would be a reality,” Ibobi Singh said. India and Myanmar share a
1,643-km unfenced border.

Travel to reduce stress, anxiety
New York, Nov 12 : If you are a keen traveller, you are perhaps a
step closer to reducing anxiety or stress and improving your social
skills as well.
There are more benefits of packing your bag and travelling. Huffingtonpost.com
lists some of them: - Improves your social skills: Meeting new people is one
of the great upsides of travelling. Whether it’s chatting up your roommate,
making small talk with your seat-mate on a train or having a lively discussion
at a local bar, you will be forced to improve your social skills (especially if
you’re travelling solo). If new situations tend to make you anxious, travelling
is a sure way to take steps toward reducing that anxiety.
- Reduces stress: Taking time off is an obvious way to recharge and reduce
stress levels. But while staying home and resting is a worthy use of your time
off, travelling removes you from your everyday life and lets you truly escape.
Travelling lets you put aside your daily responsibilities and focus on yourself
for a moment. When you return home you’ll feel refreshed and have the
motivation you felt drained of before you left.
- Accomplishes goals: Having a travel “to-do” list and crossing things off that
list keeps you motivated and positive. That list can include things like visiting
certain locations or accomplishing something such as climbing a mountain or
becoming conversational in the language of your next destination. Achieving
those goals also increases confidence and gives a sense of success.
- Makes you more flexible: Sometimes things don’t go according to plan
while travelling. Maybe your flight is cancelled or it rains the day you’re
scheduled to go on an epic outdoor adventure. It’s okay — there are other
flights to take (or trains, or buses) and maybe on that rainy day you’ll discover
a hidden bookstore to explore or an adorable cafe to experience. Travelling
15 15-11-2013
HOBBY INDIA Fortnightly
helps you to be more flexible and open minded, making you more zen in your
everyday life. - Teaches to be more patient: Travel can involve a
lot of waiting. You’ll wait in lines, for flights or at restaurants. Learning
how to cope with those waits, how to make conversation with those
you’re waiting with and how to stay calm in frustratingly slow situations
will teach you how to remain patient and calm in all situations.

Cable cars to connect places in
Kohima
By Aparajita Gupta, New Delhi, Nov 13 : Cable cars could connect
parts of Nagaland capital Kohima, ferrying people from one place to
the other in the city.
The project will be implemented in association with a local partner under
the guidance of architect Alfredo Brillembourg, who chairs architecture and
urban design at the Swiss Institute of Technology in Zurich. “We are trying
to facilitate commuting for the people of Kohima with this project. In an
hour’s duration cable cars can carry upto 1,200 people in a single direction,”
Brillembourg told IANS in an interview. Brillembourg said these cable cars
will serve as the metro rails of other cities. In 2011, the state government
asked the partners to conduct a feasibility study of the project.
“The state government (Nagaland) had been extremely helpful regarding
the project. They have seen it and now it is lying with the central government
for funds approval,” he added. Satish Pathania of Leading Edge Adventures
and Airparks, a developer in regional airlines, air taxi, adventure tourism
and metro cable, is the local partner for the project.Brillembourg said he
has also carried out a study in a fishermen’s village in Mumbai. Talking
about the scattered slums in the financial hub of India, Brillembourg said he
did not favour tall vertical structures for Mumbai slums as they will rob the
people of sunlight and air.He said going vertical by one or two floors would
be fine. “By going up one or two floors more, Mumbai can attain the same
densities as Paris.”Brillembourg, who is here to attend a symposium on
architecture, design and engineering organised by the Embassy of
Switzerland, claimed that he had been approached by other Indian states
to execute projects. “These exchanges by Swiss architects
are not meant for replicating Swiss architecture but about adapting the
planning from there,” said Swiss Ambassador to India Linus von Castelmur.
“Planning tools by various architects play an important role.”

India has massive challenges in
higher education, says PM
New Delhi, Nov 7 : Massive challenges lie ahead for India as far
as higher education in science and technology is concerned, Prime
Minister Manmohan Singh said here Thursday.
“India’s research output as global share of scientific publications was a
mere 3.5 percent in 2010 whereas China’s share was 21 percent in
2007. The total number of patent applications filed by Indians in 2010
comprised only 0.3 percent of the total applications filed globally,”
Manmohan Singh said at a conference of directors of National Institutes
of Technology (NIT) at Rashtrapati Bhavan.
The two-day conference has been convened by President Pranab
Mukherjee to discuss steps required to improve the quality of technical
education and faculty development at the NITs. “As far as higher
education in science and technology in our country is concerned, there
are massive challenges that lie ahead,” Manmohan Singh said. The NITs
are all institutions of national importance. They contribute substantially to
the technical man-power requirements of the country’s expanding
economy, the prime minister said. He said that the UPA government has
laid special emphasis on education. “The last nine years have seen
unprecedented expansion of the education system at all levels — primary,
secondary and higher.” “These efforts have been driven by the
consideration that a skilled workforce is critical for rapid socio-economic
progress of our country. It is essential to improve access to education
and also its quality if we are to take full advantage of the large proportion
of young men and women in our population,” Manmohan Singh said. “I
am sure these initiatives will be of great benefit to the cause of higher
education in our country and would also encourage others in their efforts
to strengthen the higher education system,” he added.

India drives growth of foreign
students in the US
By Arun Kumar, Washington, Nov 7 : With a 40 percent surge, Indian
students largely drove the growth of new foreign enrolment in US
graduate schools this year, while those from China slowed to 5
percent, according to a new survey.
The 40 percent increase in new enrolees from India in 2013 was substantially
more than the 1 percent increase in 2012 and 2 percent increase in 2011,
according to an annual survey of 285 members of the Council of Graduate
Schools (CGS). On the other hand, after seven consecutive years of double-
digit growth, first-time enrolment among students from China increased by
19
15-11-2013 HOBBY INDIA Fortnightly
just 5 percent in 2013, a substantially smaller increase than the
22 percent surge in 2012 and 21 percent increase in 2011.
However, China continues to be the largest source of
international graduate students, representing 34 percent of all
international graduate students in the US, according to the
survey. “While the substantial increase in first-time enrolments
of Indian students is positive, the fluctuation in India enrolment
in recent years makes it difficult to confirm a definite trend,”
said CGS President Debra W. Stewart. Overall, first-time
international enrolment in US graduate programmes rose 10
percent to 71,418 students this year, the survey found. Total
foreign enrolment was 220,317-about 15 percent of all graduate
students in America.
Despite a 12 percent dip in new enrolees between 2012 and
2013, South Korea also continues to be a leading source of
international graduate students in the US, behind only China and
India. According to the survey, students from Europe constitute
7 percent of all first-time enrolments among international
students in 2013, while students from Africa constitute 3
percent, and students from the Middle East constitute 6 percent.
International graduate students continue to enrol in fields that
have been traditionally popular among this population. The two
most popular fields among international students are physical
and earth sciences, which includes mathematics and computer
sciences, and engineering: together they comprised 47 percent
of all international graduate student enrolment in 2013,
according to the survey. All four major regions of the US saw
growth in first-time graduate enrolment in 2013, with increases
of 17 percent in the West, 12 percent in the Midwest, 9 percent
in the Northeast, and 7 percent in the South.

Fill up vacant posts in NITs:
Pranab Mukherjee
New Delhi, Nov 8 : President Pranab Mukherjee Friday asked the
National Institutes of Technology (NITs) to fill the vacant posts in a
time-bound manner.
He highlighted the fact that there are over 44 percent vacancies in faculty
positions in the old NITs, and over 63 percent in the new ones.
He also called upon the ministry of human resource development to take
measures for providing flexibility to NITs in hiring outstanding candidates from
industry, foreign universities and national laboratories as visiting and adjunct
faculty. “Improving international ratings should be an important area of
attention,” said Mukherjee who was addressing the NIT directors at a two-
day conference at Rashtrapati Bhawan here.
Mukherjee further said the NITs should complete the construction of basic
infrastructure, including e-classrooms within a specified time frame.
“Each NIT should within the next six months establish an industry cell in
collaboration with local industry and industry associations. This cell must

Australia: New PhD program launched in India
New Delhi, Nov 11 : A new multimillion-dollar scholarship program will be
launched in India on Monday to provide the next generation of researchers,
innovators and entrepreneurs in Melbourne and India with world-leading
academic supervision and support. The Melbourne-India Postgraduate
Program (MIPP) will link the University of Melbourne with some of the
leading research institutes in India: the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore
(IISc), the Institute of Technology Kanpur (IITK) and the Institute of
Technology Madras (IITM). A joint initiative of the four institutions, the USD
3 million (AUD) program will provide 16 PhD scholarships and associated
support for research exchanges over the next three years. Speaking ahead of
the launch, University Vice-Chancellor Professor Glyn Davis said the new
program was a valuable addition to Melbourne’s already extensive
scholarship offerings. “As a University we are committed to supporting
research that has global impact and benefits, and this Program will go a long
way to help further this goal.” “By enabling students from India and Australia
to undertake jointly developed research of the highest quality, we’re confident
the program will address shared global challenges in areas of environmental,
societal and technological need.” “Beyond this, we’re excited that the
program will give students the opportunity to contribute to the development
of education, cultural and industry links between both countries.” The
program will officially commence in 2014 and will be open to PhD students
enrolled at the University Of Melbourne, to be co-supervised by staff at
IITK, IITM or IISC.
Alternatively, students enrolled in one of the three Indian institutions will have
access to co-supervision with Melbourne academics. IITK Director
Professor Indranil Manna said the initiative would bring leading institutions
together. “Australian and Indian communities hold immense respect for each
other and this is yet another opportunity that would contribute to the
strengthening of cultural ties between the two great nations.”
“The Faculty at IIT Kanpur has always advocated and encouraged inter-
disciplinary and inter-institutional collaboration and cooperation in all areas of
mutual interest in science and Engineering. Such programmes not only
contribute to diversity on campus, but also help build bridges across
geographical borders,” he said. “I earnestly wish for stronger interaction and
collaboration in the proposed initiative.”

Reconsider Andhra bifurcation,
Kiran Reddy again asks centre
Hyderabad, Nov 15 : Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Kiran
Kumar Reddy Friday again said he was opposed to bifurcation of the
state and asked the central government to reconsider the decision.
A day after postponing his visit to Delhi to meet Group of Ministers (GoM),
the chief minister said the bifurcation would lead to more problems for
Telangana. He also warned that Maoist problem would raise its head in
both states.
Kiran Reddy was addressing a public meeting at Chodavaram in
Visakhapatnam district of coastal Andhra as part of ‘Racchabanda’ or mass
contact programme of the government.\ Pointing out that after all political
parties favoured bifurcation, the Congress party was the last to take the
decision, Kiran reddy said: “But we are opposing the decision. In fact, all
people in Seemandhra (Rayalaseema and coastal Andhra) are opposing it.”
He said Telugu people could progress only if they remain united as with
294-member assembly and 42 Lok Sabha members Andhra Pradesh would
be one of the strong states in the country. “Some people are saying
Telangana will benefit from bifurcation and Seemandhra will suffer, but
Telangana will suffer more than Seemandhra,” he said. Kiran Reddy argued
that division would lead to more expenditure and loss of revenue for both
the states. He claimed that the two states would have to spend Rs.5,000
crore more on salaries for their employees and pensioners.Pointing out that
electricity consumption in Telangana was 50 percent more than the
generation, he said the region would require Rs.60,000-70,000 crore on lift
irrigation projects in four to five years.Kiran Reddy claimed the two states
25 15-11-2013
HOBBY INDIA Fortnightly
would have to double the strength of their police forces, and there would be
more pressure on police forces to maintain law and order.
“At present, additional policemen are called from Seemandhra for smooth
conduct of Ganesh procession in Hyderabad. Similarly, whenever there are
problems in Seemandhra, police forces are rushed from Telangana. But this
situation will not be there after the bifurcation,” he said.
The chief minister also warned the two states would face a spurt in Maoist
activity. “Today, we have the Maoist problem only in Visakhapatnam
(coastal Andhra) and Khammam (Telangana) districts but after bifurcation,
this problem will spread,” he said.
Kiran Reddy’s latest remarks came as the GoM stepped up its work to
prepare a report on bifurcation of the state. A draft bill for formation of
Telangana state is likely to be sent to the Andhra Pradesh assembly by this
month-end while the bill is likely to be tabled during the winter session of
parliament next month. The GoM summoned the chief minister to Delhi for
a meeting Thursday but he postponed the visit. He is now likely to meet the
GoM on Monday, when the central ministers from the state would also
present their views before the ministerial panel.

Singh, who is in-charge for Andhra Pradesh, yesterday said that the Centre
has to consult UPA partners and opposition parties, as the decision could
require amendments to the Constitution.
Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, Congress President Sonia Gandhi,
Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi and other senior Cabinet ministers
and leaders from the ruling party’s core group are expected to attend the
meeting.
Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde earlier on Wednesday said the
consultations on the demand for a separate Telangana were still on and it
would take time for arriving at a decision.
“How can I make a comment on the core group’s plan? There is a high
command which will take a decision,” he said, when asked whether a
decision was expected from the Congress Core Group. Congress MPs
from Telangana have so far accused the Centre of following what they call a
‘one-step-forward-two-backward’ approach when it comes to addressing
their demand for a separate state. The Centre’s flip-flop over the issue
began in December 2009 when the then Home Minister P. Chidambaram
promised the formation of a new state only to go back on it after a few
days. The issue was later pushed before a committee headed by Justice
B.N. Srikrishna. This panel did not come up with a tangible solution, but
instead presented six options. These included the creation of a Telangana
Regional Council within Andhra, bifurcation of the state into Telangana with
Hyderabad as the capital and Seemandhra with a new capital; bifurcation of
the state into Seemandhra and Telangana after making Hyderabad a Union
Territory; bifurcation of the state into Seemandhra and Telangana with
enlarged Hyderabad metropolis as a Union Territory; bifurcation of the state
into Rayala Telangana and Coastal Andhra; and maintenance of status quo.

Andhra Pradesh CM’s meet with
GoM on Telangana postponed
Hyderabad, Nov 14 : Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Kiran
Kumar Reddy, who was scheduled to meet Group of Ministers
(GOM) on Telangana in Delhi Thursday night, has postponed his
visit.
The chief minister will not be travelling to the national capital for the meeting
with the GoM, sources in the Chief Minister’s Office said.
The GoM, which has intensified the process for bifurcation of Andhra
Pradesh, summoned Kiran Reddy for a meeting at 8 p.m. He was scheduled
to leave at 4 p.m. However, the reasons for the chief minister postponing his
visit were not clear. The political circles were abuzz with speculations that
Kiran reddy, who is opposed to the centre’s decision to bifurcate the state,
is deliberately avoiding the meeting.
According to the reports from Delhi, the GoM has now asked the chief
minister to be available for the meeting on Nov 18, when the ministerial
group would be holding consultations with the central ministers from the
state.
The GoM held separate meetings with seven political parties of the state
during the last two days in the national capital to know their views on various
issues related to bifurcation.
Defying the Congress leadership over its decision to carve out separate
Telangana state, Kiran Reddy has already asked the central government to
reconsider the decision, saying bifurcation would lead to many problems.
Kiran Reddy also wrote to President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister
Manmohan Singh, finding fault with the manner in which the government is
going ahead with the process of bifurcation.
