Telangana Political Joint Action committee wary of pro-Telangana vote split in Parkal byelection
TNN, May 14, 2012
HYDERABAD: The Telangana Political Joint Action Committee (T-JAC) might be forced to ultimately come up with a consensus candidate for the Parkal Assembly bypoll with neither BJP nor TRS willing to relinquish the battle in favour of either one of them.
The T-JAC has made it clear that it is in favour of a scenario wherein it is either the BJP or TRS contesting the Parkal seat since competition between these two pro-Telangana parties is only likely to benefit a third party, maybe YSR Congress, in the lone Assembly constituency facing bypolls in the region. However, with neither party paying any heed to the T-JAC’s views in the matter, the alliance might be forced to put forward a name which is acceptable to both BJP and TRS as a consensus candidate.
“We are still saying that there should be one candidate, from either the BJP or TRS. That is our stand. They (the two parties) have to understand that the fight for personal gains can only shatter the very dream of a separate Telangana state. We are still trying to drive the point home but if that yields no results, the search for an alternative route would begin,” said T-JAC chairman, M Kodandaram.
But the chairman refused to say much more about fielding a neutral candidate. “T-JAC is not a political outfit and it is never interested in venturing into electoral politics. But the present situation is something that threatens to shake the very base of the movement. So, we will hold discussions to find a way out,” he said. (more…)

T-resolution moved in RS
May 5,2012 Deccan Chronicle, New Delhi
Strongly supporting the creation of a Telangana state, senior BJP leader Prakash Javadekar on Friday took on the Congress for “betraying” the people of the region by going back on its promise.
Moving a private member’s resolution for creation of a separate Telangana state, Mr Javadekar stated that both Telangana and Seemandhra regions could co-exist peacefully and prosper.
“We are providing a blank cheque. Let the government bring the resolution, we will pass it,” Mr Javadekar said while speaking on his resolution.
Mr Javadekar said even home minister P. Chidambaram, in December 2009, had said the process of formation of the state “has begun” but two-and-a- half-years had passed since then. (more…)
