Srikrishna report to be shared at Jan 6 meet
Hyderabad: The purpose of the meeting of eight political parties from Andhra Pradesh convened by the Centre on January six is to share the Srikrishna committee report on Telangana, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram has said in a letter to CPI state secretary K Narayana.
"You will recall that the Justice Srikrishna committee was appointed following the meeting of the eight recognised political parties on January 5, 2010. Since the report is a direct outcome of that meeting, we thought that it would be appropriate to first share the report with the eight recognised political parties," the letter says.
"It is only at a meeting that I can share the report with all eight parties simultaneously. If I send the report to the eight political parties in advance, it is possible that one may receive it earlier and one may receive it later, leading to criticism," Chidambaram adds.
Urging the CPI leader to attend the meeting, Chidambaram says in the letter that the future course of action can be discussed later.
"I would, therefore, urge you to kindly attend the meeting on January 6, 2011. We will share the report with the eight recognised political parties. Thereafter, we could discuss the future course of action," letter says.
The Union Home Minister was replying to a letter written by Narayana who sought that the report be given in advance.
Narayana and the party`s floor leader in the assembly G Mallesh would represent the CPI in the January six meeting.
"Mallesh and myself, we will go for the meeting," Narayana told PTI.
