Reorganization of districts: Carving out Warangal, Hanamkonda gains pace

Warangal: Close on the heels of Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao's announcement, the reorganization of Warangal Urban and Warangal Rural districts have gained pace.

Several mandals in both the districts are going to be adjusted to create the new districts, keeping in mind the population factor. Wardhannapet, Raiparthy, Parvathagiri which are currently part of the Warangal Rural district may join the Hanamkonda district.

During the time of district reorganization in 2016, the erstwhile Warangal district was divided into six districts. Warangal Urban was formed with 11 mandals and Warangal Rural has 16 mandals. They have 131 revenue villages and 245 revenue villages respectively.

Under the new reorganization plan, the Warangal Urban district will have to forego Warangal and Quila Warangal mandals. To maintain the population balance, four mandals from Warangal Rural could be included in Hanamkonda district.

Local public representatives seem to have already come to a conclusion about the division of the mandals. There is also a chance of one new mandal to be created and included in the Hanamkonda district. Warangal and Hanamkonda districts might have 13 mandals each.

However, there are sections which are opposing the move to divide the historic cities of Hanamkonda and Warangal.

CPI (M) state secretary Thakkallapalli Srinivasa Rao said the Warangal district should not be divided. He said the joint district had already been divided into six parts. He said the historic city of Warangal should not be fragmented again.

"Local public representatives are putting pressure to divide the city for their political gains. KCR government, which has said that the division of districts is for administrative convenience, is not even appointing enough staff. People are suffering severely. Minister Errabelli Dayakar Rao claims that Warangal and Hanmakonda districts were being formed on the demand of the people. Let him tell us who want the division. People are surely going to teach them a befitting lesson," he warned.
