At the end of a three-day visit to Hyderabad, V.K. Duggal, member-secretary of the committee,  told the media, ``If all the issues stand clarified then there is no need for a second round of consultations.  If the panel  likes to know anything  further then it will invite political parties to highlight those facts.’’

The panel has held meetings with major parties, Telugu Desam, Praja Rajyam, Majlis Ittehad-ul-Muslimeen, TRS, CPI and CPM excepting the ruling Congress.

The five-member panel has received over 1.20 lakh representations, many of them simple postcards, and interacted with about 50 organisations, he said.

``After these consultations, the panel will start field visits. The  field   visits  would last for a month beginning the last week  of June,’’ observed  Duggal.

``The main intention of the committee is to hear the views of the broad section of the people and organisations, besides meeting the political parties,’’ Duggal  added.

 After  the  completion of field visits, the panel  will sit for three months from August and analyse the representations given by the political parties and organisations on various subjects with experts. Finally, the panel would  present its report  to the Centre.
