Revanth’s decision to reduce Telangana districts arbitrary and shortsighted 

Revanth Reddy’s recent decision to reduce the number of districts in Telangana from 33 to 17 has sparked widespread criticism and concern among various segments of society. Many view this decision as arbitrary and shortsighted, with potentially far-reaching consequences.

Critics argue that this decision, made seemingly to fulfill personal ambitions rather than serve the public interest, has the potential to throw Telangana into chaos and set back its development by a decade. By scrapping the existing 33 districts and consolidating them into 17, Revanth Reddy risks disrupting established administrative structures and processes, leading to a host of challenges for residents across the state.

One of the most significant impacts of this decision is expected to be felt by Telangana’s youth, particularly those seeking employment opportunities. The restructuring of districts will likely necessitate a reevaluation of the zonal system. This could delay the issuance of job notifications for up to two years and significantly hamper the prospects of job seekers.

Furthermore, Telangana’s farmers are anticipated to bear the brunt of this move. The creation of new districts has already caused land prices to soar in approximately 30 towns, providing farmers with a degree of financial stability. However, Revanth Reddy’s decision is poised to trigger a sharp decline in land prices.

Government employees are also poised to face considerable challenges as a result of the district reorganization. The reassignment of employees, who had already been allocated to the 33 districts, will disrupt their lives and potentially affect the education of their children as they are forced to relocate to new towns. Additionally, the considerable investment made in constructing district offices across the 33 district centers stands to be squandered as a result of this decision.

Overall, there is mounting concern among the people of Telangana that Revanth Reddy’s actions are driven more by political motives than genuine concern for the welfare of the state. If left unchecked, this unilateral decision could have irreversible consequences for Telangana’s development and stability.
