Hyderabad under New Delhi\'s control after Andhra bifurcation raises hackles of TRS

HYDERABAD: A home ministry task force wants New Delhi to have control over law & order in Hyderabad for a decade after Andhra Pradesh is divided, raising the hackles of the main separatist Telangana Rashtra Samithi.

The recommendation, justified on the ground of \"fear psychosis\" among professionals from Seemandhra (the coastal and southern parts of Andhra Pradesh from which Telangana is sought to be separated) comes amid a frenzy of activity which could determine the fate of the bifurcation of India\'s fourth-largest state.

The task force headed by K Vijaya Kumar, a former director general of the Central Reserve Police Force and senior security advisor to the home ministry, visited Hyderabad last week before making its recommendations to a ministerial panel that will decide on the issues relating to bifurcation.

\"There is fear psychosis in Seemandhra professionals in Hyderabad that they will be driven out and forced to sell their concerns under distress after division of the state. Pertinently, most of the private educational institutions and hospitality sector in and around Hyderabad are owned by people of Seemandhra origin,\" according to the task force\'s report seen by ET.
