Action plan sought to rebuild Telangana

Justice L. Narasimha Reddy of the High Court said that compared to the 1960s and the 70s, governance was at the crossroads.

With Telangana set to become the 29 State, what is required of the political executive is to formulate policies and for officials and administration is assurance of their implementation in letter and spirit.

He was addressing a gathering comprising members of the Telangana Commercial Taxes Gazetted Officers’ Association (TCTGOA) at a symposium titled ‘Perspectives on Telangana State & the Role of the Executive’ here on Friday evening,

In a market economy, the focus was on the standard of living of people, but what was more important was improving the standard of life per se and that would come only with an element of simplicity and sacrifice, he said.

Change in approach

This required an attitudinal change in employees and officers, he said, adding that they should view work as a service to people, without dishonesty in approach.

G. Vivekanand, MP, said the need of the hour was to chalk out an action plan with a half-a-dozen indicators for a start, in the endeavour to recreate Telangana State.

“Let us have just five or six points on which to work on. Land records management is an important task and titles will be crucial in the new State, apart from maintaining law and order. All these would create an atmosphere conducive enough for all to work together and make Telangana a development model for others to follow,” he said.

Other key speakers included Telangana Joint Action Committee chairman. Prof. M. Kodandaram, Telangana Employees JAC, G. Deviprasad, Prof. G. Haragopal, Chief Editor of the Telugu daily ‘Namasthe Telangana’, Allam Narayana, Convenor of the Forum for Telangana, Osmania University, Prof. G. Laxman, Chairman, Telangana Commercial Taxes JAC T. Vivek

TCTGOA General Secretary C. Anil Kumar presided over the occasion that was also utilised to felicitate Joint Commissioner (CT) N. Ashok Reddy on his superannuation.
