Hyderabad: The Central government has in principle agreed to the request of AP Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu to make changes in the Presidential Order to ensure that students and job aspirants shifting from Hyderabad to AP do not lose nativity clause for the purpose of admissions into educational institutions ans into government jobs.
Sources said that Union urban development minister M. Venkaiah Naidu held meeting with top officials of law, home and finance departments and explained to them the status of AP, problems relating to nativity issue. The Centre is working ways to ensure the Presidential Order, sources said.
It may mentioned that Mr Chandrababu Naidu during a visit to Delhi urged the Centre to take steps to see that children of staff shifting from TS do not face problems with their ‘nativity status’ in education or employment.
Provision of local status to children of those shifting to Andhra Pradesh is an important milestone in the shifting of the state administration from its common capital of Hyderabad.
