By bifurcation of the undivided A.P. Circle, new A.P.Circle has been inaugurated at Vijayawada in the presence of Communications Minister Manoj Sinha, IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, Broadcasting Minister Venkaiah Naidu and Chief Minister N.Chandrababu Naidu. CMD BSNL Anupam Shrivastava was also present. The Postal Circle also has been bifurcated and new A.P.Circle formed.
Undivided A.P.Circle which was the biggest in terms of employees, will have to step back in favour of Maharashtra Circle. However, with regard to area, Rajasthan will be the biggest Circle.
I hope that the new set up in new A.P.Circle will be effectively formed immediately so that neither the service nor the issues of the employees suffer. The assurances of the Chief Minister for full support in providing infrastructure including land, building etc need to be honoured.
