The Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) Saturday started a ‘war room’ at Telangana Bhavan to ensure state government employees from Seemandhra are not allowed to work in offices in the new Telangana state.

Mahbubnagar MLA V Srinivas Goud, the former president of Telangana Gazetted Officers Association, inaugurated the war room, a website and an email ID at the TRS headquarters. A team headed by Telangana non-Gazetted Officers Association chairman G Devi Prasad will scrutinise the distribution of state government staff and allotment of cadre to ensure no person from Seemandhra is allowed to work in Hyderabad.

Besides Goud and Prasad, nine MLAs will be part of the team. “We are building a database of all employees from Seemandhra so we can counter any fake domicile and nativity certificates produced by them. We want to ensure distribution of employees is based on domicile. Telangana employees should work in Telangana offices and Seemandhra employees should go to Andhra,” Goud said.

Telangana employees have been asked to pass on information regarding Andhra employees in their departments trying to stay back in Hyderabad or get themselves allotted to Telangana. They can send the information to trswarroom@

The war room started operations a day after TRS chief and CM-designate K Chandrasekhar Rao warned that no Seemandhra domicile employee would be allowed to work in offices in Hyderabad after he takes charge of the new state on June 2. The war room has been set up amid allegations by Telangana employees’ unions that some Seemandhra domicile employees were being inducted into the staff of the new Telangana Secretariat after they produced fake or forged domicile certificates.

“There is no question of Seemandhra employees working in Telangana offices. They have to go back to Andhra. We cannot have a mix of Telangana and Andhra employees in Telangana,” Rao said while addressing the unions.

Only a provisional list of employees has been prepared so far and the final list would be declared once Rao and N Chandrababu Naidu take over as chief ministers of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh respectively.

Prasad said the war room was meant to ensure no Seemandhra employee gets a job that rightfully belongs to people from Telangana. “We do not want that injustice again,” Prasad said.
