Parkal result a wake up call for Telangana Rashtra Samithi
Arun Kumar Govindraj, TNN, June 16, 2012
HYDERABAD: The close finish in Parkal between K Chandrasekhar Rao’s Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and Jaganmohan Reddy’s YSR Congress has thrown up serious questions about the strength of the ongoing separate Telangana movement with the TRS itself admitting that it needs to regroup and introspect.
TRS ought to be worried by the slender majority of 1,562 votes by which its candidate Moluguri Bikshapati won as Parkal lies in the heart of Telangana statehood movement — Warangal. TRS earlier had boasted that it would win by a majority of 35,000-40,000 votes. But evidently, the voter was equally divided between the pro-Telangana protagonist and a party which espouses the united Andhra cause.
In fact, the fight turned out to be a bit like a T-20 cricket match with leads swinging back and forth between the TRS and YSR CP. Bhikhapati, who was leading comfortably with 5,999-vote lead till the 12th round, slipped to a slender majority of 283 votes in the 17th round. At one point, YSR CP’s Konda Surekha led by 16 votes. The TRS candidate gained in the last 19th round and snatched victory. But where did the TRS calculations go wrong? The Friday’s result is not only a wake up call for the party but raises questions on the effectiveness of the movement. (more…)

TRS leaders to lay siege on city
Deccan Chronicle, September 20, 2011, Hyderabad
Telangana activists, who blocked highways across the region on Monday, are planning to lay siege on Hyderabad in October. The Telangana Rashtra Samiti deputy floor leader in the Assembly, Mr T. Harish Rao, said that a “Chalo Hyderabad” programme would be held next month. “The agitations will continue till Telangana is achieved,” he said during the rasta roko on National Highway 9 at Zaheerabad in Medak district. Mr Rao warned that if the Centre failed to take a positive decision on Telangana immediately, the agitators would block the highways every day. The TRS MP, Ms Vijayashanti, blasted Congress leaders for “sitting in AC rooms” at a time when lakhs of Telangana people were blocking the highways under the hot sun. (more…)

Telangana board wants 30% quota in Tollywood
April 28, 2011 Deccan Chronicle Correspondent, Hyderabad
April 27: After two strikes and colossal flops, Tollywood must now prepare to take another hit, this time from the Telangana Film Chamber of Commerce.

This means, in a production house with a staff strength of 20, at least seven to eight employees should be from the Telangana region. (more…)

An Eye-opener On Telangana
Power Politics, April 2011
The major defect that Telangana suffers from is lack of data and documentation to advocate against discrimination and disparities perpetuated by leaders coming from other regions. This problem is now being addressed effectively. Telangana: The State of Affairs, edited by M Bharath Bhushan and N Venugopal is a bold attempt to provide a framework to understand the rationale for the demand of Telangana
Telangana is victim of its own leaders who permitted others to exploit it. These leaders are culpable for two reasons : either they are guilty of not knowing the diversion of water, funds and other resources; or they knew it but allowed the injustice to continue without any resistance. For the sin of leaders, people are suffering. It can also be said other way round too : people should have been more conscious to question these leaders and not allowed the leaders to exploit them.
TELANGANA : THE STATE OF AFFAIRS, M Bharath Bhushan, N. Venugopal, AdEd Value Ventures, 2009, Rs 250, pp. 210
Andhra Pradesh unfortunately did not have a leader of state level nature so far. Almost all chief ministers conducted themselves as the leaders of their native district or region and none ruled like a leader of the entire state. Some of the leaders did not do anything for their district or region. People’s representatives who occupied crucial positions in New Delhi were more obedient to Prime Ministers and thus never cared for their state. Some MPs and bureaucrats from Coastal Andhra were over smart and diverted the resources from out of Telangana. This led to serious disparities among the region’s leading to the present state of hostilities and turbulence.

‘Telangana just a matter of time’
He is the typical new age politician – young, suave and articulate. He served the corporate sector for a while before taking a plunge into politics. However, when it comes to his ideology, Andhra Pradesh legislator K T Rama Rao, also the son of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief K Chandrasekhar Rao, is clear that his party wants nothing short of a separate Telangana.
“The question is not if Telangana is formed; but when Telangana is formed. It may even take a while before the Telangana state is formed, but the fight will go on till a solution is found. No matter who leads it, the demand for statehood has been on the agenda for over four decades now. Telangana has enough leaders to rule the state. Even the Srikrishna committee says as a separate state Telangana is a viable option,” he says. (more…)

Telangana The seventh option
Unknown to most parties, the Centre is plotting a new way out of the Telangana impasse. RAMAN KIRPAL has the details
In A new twist to the Telangana issue, the Centre is considering a seventh option that it hopes would be accepted by the parties warring over this vexing problem. The seventh option has a few radical measures and draws on other measures suggested previously in the report of the Committee for Consultation on the Situation in Andhra Pradesh. The committee was headed by former Supreme Court Justice BN Srikrishna and it offered six options, which many pro-Telangana organisations have not accepted.
The previous six options were: maintaining status quo in Andhra Pradesh; bifurcating the state into two, Seemandhra and Telangana, with Hyderabad as a Union Territory and two separate capitals for the new states; bifurcation into two, Rayala-Telangana and coastal Andhra regions, with Hyderabad an integral part of Rayala-Telangana; bifurcation into Seemandhra and Telangana with an enlarged Hyderabad metropolis as a separate Union Territory with extended Hyderabad territory; bifurcation into Telangana and Seemandhra according to existing boundaries with Hyderabad as capital of Telangana and Seemandhra to have a new capital; and keeping Andhra Pradesh united and creating a statutory empowered Telangana Regional Council (TRC).
Most parties did not like these recommendations. Congress MPs especially made dramatic requests to Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee, who headed a group on Telangana in the past. Convinced that it needs another option, the Congress leadership began putting a new solution together. (more…)
