The Home Minister, Mr P. Chidambaram, on Thursday appealed to political parties in Andhra Pradesh to read the recommendations of the Justice Srikrishna Committee on Telangana with an “open mind” and give “impartial consideration” to them.

He expressed confidence that the report will generate an “informed and matured” debate on the issue.

Handing over copies of the report to leaders of political parties from the state at a meeting here, Mr Chidambaram urged them to give “your most careful, thoughtful and impartial” consideration to the recommendations.

He asked them to read the report with an “open mind” and be prepared to persuade or be persuaded by those holding different point of view.

Mr Chidambaram regretted the boycott of the meeting by TRS, TDP and BJP.

“It is Government’s sincere hope that the report will generate an informed and matured debate,” he said.

Recalling the discussions on January 5 last year, which he said had showed the way forward — that findings, study, analysis, options and recommendations, Mr Chidambaram said its is the government’s hope that the discussions today will also show the way forward.
