This has reference to certain news items which appeared recently regarding creation of new districts in Telangana State.
The reports even stated that there will be 12 more new districts and specific names have also been mentioned. In this connection, it is clarified that the State government has constituted a committee under the Chairmanship of Chief Secretary and the basic work of collection of data, specific features and so on has just started. The committee is yet to formulate its proposals and therefore, any speculation in this regard is pre-mature, baseless and misleading, according to a pressnote from the CMO. (NSS)
