Union Home Minister P Chidambaram on Thursday informed Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy that he has already sent the file on the deletion of Clause 14 F from the Presidential Orders, to the office of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, for his approval.
Chidambaram was replying to Kiran Kumar Reddy's request, conveyed during an earlier telephonic call, informing the Union Home Minister that getting a second resolution passed by the state Assembly was impossible and urging him to forward the file to the Prime Minister's Office.
The Home Minister responded positively to Kiran Kumar Reddy's telephone call, and then, about an hour later, called him back, saying that the file had been sent to the PMO.
The Chief Minister called Chidambaram after 3 ministers from Telangana, D Sridhar Babu, Komatireddi Venkat Reddy and Basavaraj Saraiah, called on him at the Camp Office and mounted pressure on him to put off the Sub-Inspectors' recruitment examination till the deletion of the controversial Clause 14 F.
Incidentally, 3 other Telangana ministers, Deputy Chief Deputy C Damodar Rajanarasimha, Marketing Minister Mukesh Goud and Minister for Labour Danam Nagender, had met the CM on Wednesday at the C Block of the Secretariat, and urged him to persuade the Central government for the deletion of the clause.
The contentious clause permits candidates from all the 3 regions to apply for jobs in the police department in Hyderabad, which is currently a 'Free Zone'. (INN)
