A Telugu television channel came out with a scoop on Saturday night, stating that the Centre had almost decided on bifurcation of the state and that it was seriously working out a formula on the state capital issue.
The channel, quoting sources in Delhi, came out with a theory that the Centre would propose making Hyderabad as a common capital for Andhra and Telangana regions for another 10 years till a new capital is created for the Andhra region. The proposal, according to the channel, is being made in view of the international recognition Hyderabad has got and politicians and businessmen in other two regions have a lot of stake in it.
The channel also says the Congress high command had a talk with Telangana Rashtra Samithi president K Chandrasekhara Rao and tried to convince him on the capital issue. On behalf of the high command, senior Congress MLA K Jana Reddy is negotiating with KCR, the channel said.
The participants in the debate, conducted by the channel, Ch Rajeshwara Rao, TG Venkatesh and Sabbam Hari, had turned down this common capital proposal, saying it would only be a far-fetched idea and there was no truth in it.
