The Lok Satta Party today demanded that the State Government exert pressure on the Union Government and get Section 14 (F) deleted from the Presidential Order of 1975.

In a media statement, Lok Satta Party leaders Katari Srinivasa Rao and P. Bhaskara Rao recalled that at the initiative of the Lok Satta, the Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly unanimously adopted a resolution seeking deletion of Section 14 (F) nearly a year ago and sent it to the Government of India.

Referring to the State Government’s plan to conduct a written examination for recruitment of sub-inspectors, they said that Hyderabad should be treated as part of the sixth zone, and not as a free zone. Apprehensions over the so-called free zone fuelled regional animosities in 2009, they recalled.

The Lok Satta leaders faulted the State and Union Governments for being complacent on addressing such a sensitive issue.
