Ahead of the launch of its consultation process, the Justice B N Srikrishna Committee on Telangana will meet in New Delhi on Thursday to review the progress made so far and discuss responses received from various quarters on the separate statehood demand.

This is the third time the five-member committee will be meeting in the national capital since it was constituted by the Centre last month. It had met once in Hyderabad.

Panel's Member-Secretary Vinod K Duggal said the committee has received "overwhelming" response from various quarters, including individuals and various organisations, on the Telangana statehood issue.

"We have appointed some people just to read the responses. The response we have got is overwhelming.... we are happy (with the trend)," he said.

"We are planning to appoint some five to six dedicated people to see the responses and format them. We need dedicated people to sort out the overwhelming responses," Duggal said.

Earlier, many organisations had threatened to boycott the panel, but most of them have now reversed their decision and sent their views to the panel.

The committee plans to launch its consultation process with the general public and political parties from the first week of April and has announced that the hearings will be conducted in Hyderabad and other parts of the state.
