Won't touch special zonal norms of TS and AP: Amit Shah


The Union government revoked Article 370 for Jammu and Kashmir, and the relevance of supporting Article 371 (D), under which Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states have got some special provisions, has caught attention. During the debate in Parliament on the bills in regard to Article 370, Union home minister Amit Shah had said, “The government would not fiddle with Article 371.”

According to Article 371(D), “The President may by order made with respect to the state of Andhra Pradesh provide, having regard to the requirements of the state as a whole, for equitable opportunities and facilities for the people belonging to different parts of the state, in the matter of public employment and in the matter of education, and different provisions may be made for various parts of the state.”

B Vinod Kumar, politburo member of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) said, “Article 371(D) is aimed at giving priority to locals in education and employment and to organise local cadres and zonal-wise recruitment. The TRS will strongly oppose any move by the Centre to tinker with Article 371 (D).” N. Ramachandra Rao, a BJP Member of the Legislative Council said, “Though the state had been bifurcated, the Article is still in force in both states and the Centre will not meddle with it.”
