Hyderabad: Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao’s recent meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi has paid off. Mr Rao had submitted a wish list comprising of 11 issues to Mr Modi. Of this, the Centre’s approval to the new TS zonal system was most important.

The Chief Minister’s Office has received information from the Prime Minister’s Office that Mr Modi had approved the new zonal system and the Union home ministry is expected to issue a notification in this regard within a week. The Centre’s approval will enable the TS government to speed up the recruitment drive with reservations to locals.

The new zonal system is aimed at providing 95 percent of government jobs to locals in the respective zones. The new zones were created in the wake of reorganisation of districts from October 10 to October 31, 2016. The state Cabinet on May 27 approved the new zonal system and sent it to the Centre for approval. However, it has been lying pending since then.

The CM had rushed to Delhi on May 20 to pursue the case with the PM and the Union home minister Mr Rajnath Singh.

The CM could not get the PM’s appointment due to Mr Modi’s foreign trip. Mr Rao met Mr Singh and sought approval to the new zonal system. But this did not yield any result.

The CM went to Delhi again and met PM on August 4 and explained to him about the importance of new zonal system and the urgency for Telangana government to implement it to ensure jobs for locals. The PM responded positively. However, the state government was surprised to receive communication from PMO on Mr Modi according approval within three days of the meeting and also asking the Union Home Ministry to take necessary steps in this regard.

With PM’s approval, the Home Ministry will now issue a fresh Presidential Order notifying seven zones and two multi-zones.
