Leaders of non-gazetted officer Association of Andhra Pradesh met Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde and expressed opposition against the bifurcation of separate Telangana state.
Talking to the mediapersons on Monday evening, General Secretary of Andhra Pradesh Non Gazetted Officer Association, Ashak Babu, accompanied by other members urged Shinde not to carve out Telangana from Andhra Pradesh state.
"We met the honorable Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde and represented our problems, if the state is divided; the first category to suffer is employees because lakhs of employees are settled in Hyderabad over the last 30 years. They have to be migrate if new state is separated," said Babu.
He also added that bifurcation of Telangana would cause many problems for the thousands of employees in diverse sectors like pension, seniority and transfers among others.
After an all-party meeting held on December 28, 2012, in New Delhi to find a solution to the long pending demand for Telangana, Shinde had promised a decision within a month.
The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) didn't buy Shinde''s statement and subsequently called for a shutdown.
The chances of an immediate resolution, paving the way for the formation of Telangana appears slim, as most politicians are sharply divided within their own parties on this issue.
The common people''s resentment over the logjam was evident, as they accused politicians of serving their own ends where the issue was concerned.
