Hyderabad: The Justice Srikrishna Committee appointed by the Centre on Telangana issue is expected to submit its report to Union Home Ministry on December 30, a day ahead of its deadline, official sources said here Wednesday night.

Though there was speculation that the submission of the report may be delayed by a few months in view of the surcharged atmosphere in the state, committee Chairman Justice Srikrishna as well as member-secretary V K Duggal has said they would be submitting their report "in time."

Accordingly, the committee has chosen December 30 as the date for handing over its report to the Union Home Ministry, the sources said.

Srikrishna and his colleagues in the committee are visiting Hyderabad tomorrow. Besides state Governor E S L Narasimhan and Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy, the committee members will meet Chief Secretary S V Prasad, Director General of Police K Aravinda Rao and leaders of various political parties. They will also interact with the media, according to an official communiqué?

The committee was constituted on February 3 this year in the wake of the demand for and against the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh.

The committee toured the state extensively and elicited the views of not only political parties but also all other stakeholders, including the common people, on bifurcation issue.

It received thousands of representations from all sections and also collected huge statistical data from the state government.
