Responding to a request by the Telangana state government, the Centre has postponed the meeting on sharing of assets of AP Bhavan scheduled for Monday in Delhi. Earlier, the meeting was postponed to November 21 from November 15 on the request of the AP government.
Following a nudge by the Supreme Court, the Central government decided to resolve the issue of sharing of assets of the AP Bhavan between AP and TS, directing the Union home secretary to convene a meeting of the Chief Secretaries of the two states.TS Chief Secretary Rajeev Sharma has written to the Union home secretary that he wouldn’t be able to attend the meeting since he was busy with some assignment.
Following this, the Centre sent a communication to both the states, informing of the postponement and said that a fresh date will be decided later. Meanwhile, Mr Sharma will be retiring this month-end. Sources said that the meeting on sharing of AP Bhavan assets between TS and AP will be possible only in December, after appointment of a new Chief Secretary to TS.
