TICKLISH ISSUE: Human Rights Forum general secretary K. Balagopal speaking at a discussion on implementation of GO Ms. No. 610 in Visakhapatnam on Sunday.

VISAKHAPATNAM: Tempers ran high with differences among the participants on the implementation of GO Ms. No. 610 at a discussion conducted by Human Rights Forum here on Sunday.

While some said its implementation despite its retrieval from cold storage for so many years would help end inequalities, others refuted it saying it would lead to instigating parochial passions.

Some found fault with HRF for not being humanitarian in its stand on insisting on repatriation of Andhra employees from Telangana as per the GO issued on the basis of Presidential Order of 1973.

Justifying repatriation, HRF general secretary K. Balagopal said its implementation would pave the way for ending inequality in job opportunities.

He said rules framed in the Mulki samasthanam were not implemented leading to Telangana agitation in 1969.

The Supreme Court held as constitutional in 1972 the Mulki rules for treating settlers with 12 years residence as locals.

He said the Girglani committee had also found that the interest of locals was neglected over past several years.
