Divided over bifurcation/ Deccan Chronicle December 17th, 2009

Selfish motives are seeking the divide

T. Harish Rao

Hyderabad is the soul of the Telangana region. If someone raises the bogey of Union Territory status for Hyderabad, he is either ignorant or trying to put an obstacle to the smooth bifurcation of Telangana state from Andhra Pradesh. It is like saying Jammu and Kashmir should be independent of India.

It is our avowed stand not to discriminate against people from other regions living in Hyderabad and other parts of Telangana. People of every religion, race and region have always lived in peace in Hyderabad. We have people from Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, West Bengal, Punjab and other states. Vested interests are trying to sow the seeds of hatred and create a fear psychosis among the people of Andhra and Rayalaseema who have settled here. We have no ill will towards these peace-loving people.

Our grouse has been against the looters and exploiters. We have said openly that we will not tolerate those trying to suppress the people of the Telangana region. We have suffered a lot in every aspect, whether we speak of water, education, resource distribution, employment, or political power. Regarding the argument that people of Andhra and Rayalaseema have invested in and around Hyderabad city and developed it, I am sorry to say this exhibits the narrow, selfish outlook of the anti-Telangana people. People from other regions and states have also settled in Hyderabad. In fact, Hyderabad was developed during Nizam’s rule. We had an airport, railway network and other infrastructure, and also hospitals and educational institutions.

Telangana has to be carved out. There is no crisis. The present turmoil and agitation in coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema is artificial. The current occurrences in these regions are prompted by vested interests. There is absolutely no threat to people of Andhra, Rayalaseema and other areas living in Hyderabad. The city in fact attracted people from all parts of the world. People of Andhra and Rayalaseema need not leave Hyderabad since Hyderabad has welcomed everyone. Our battle has been against those grabbing political power and exploiting the river waters, employment opportunities, and education facilities, leaving us in distress.

Hyderabad city was the fifth largest city in India in the past. This position remains unchanged. The demographic expansion of any city cannot be presumed to be a mark of growth. It has to be underlined that Telangana is the life line of Hyderabad and vice versa. One cannot be conceived without the other.

*T. Harish Rao, MLA and Telangana Rashtra Samithi Politburo member

Grant it UT status to protect natives
J.C. Diwakar Reddy

I am an integrationist to the core. Disturbing the current status of Andhra Pradesh is not desirable. But the way things are, Hyderabad should be a Union Territory. This is my principal demand. If it is inevitable that the state government and the Centre should bifurcate Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad should have a separate entity. This has become a necessity.

There is a strong reason for the demand. People of Hyderabad city are now feeling insecure after the venomous campaign against the people of Andhra/ Rayalaseema region. Out of the city population of 60 to 70 lakh, 40 lakh are from these regions. Not only that, the contribution of people from these two areas is immense compared to that of the local people and those from other states. While the contribution toward the development of Hyderabad from the people of Andhra/Rayalaseema is about 60 per cent, it is only about half that in the case of the natives of the Telangana region.

Also, about 10 lakh people from other places live in Hyderabad. They were born and brought up in the city and have made it their home. Many are married locally and have set up businesses or found employment. I am sure many of them have no urban property or lands in the areas of their origin. This category too is under threat from Telangana agitationists.

Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) asserts it would not ask people from the Andhra or Rayalaseema region to leave Hyderabad or other parts of Telangana. But can any assurance be taken at face value? The atmosphere is volatile, and TRS leaders use foul language. The derogatory and threatening language that has been employed has greatly hurt the people who are originally not from Telangana, and has made them afraid. Telangana activists have attacked hotels, small restaurants, and educational institutions set up by Andhra/ Rayalaseema people in Karimnagar. People from these regions are scared to live in Telangana. They had settled in the Telangana area two to three decades earlier.

Even teachers who had come here in search of livelihood have not been spared. The incidents at Laxminagar and Papannapet are an eye-opener. Many who are in Hyderabad came to the city as far back as 1945. Where will they go if they are asked to leave now? Unlike other metropolitan centres, Hyderabad looks unsafe for those who settled here even 50 or 60 years ago. If the city is made a Union Territory, the move will reassure those who live and work in it, besides those who own property and business.

Harish Rao wants choice for Telanga but denies it to Jammu and Kashmir ! Great democracy this! Hyderabad is an issue beacuse it is the nerve centre logistically for the sate every train, bus and highway are designed to reach Hyderabad. It is the centre of industry, commerce, employment, education, health care and media.

After 53 years, people from the other parts are being asked to “go” or “stay”. To leave is not easy as they have built their homes and businesses in Hyderabad. If the TRS comes to power there is no guarantee that it will not target them as the BJP targets Muslims.

For the rest of the state, Hyderabad will be cut off from them and they will have to build another centre or centres that can match Hyderabad. That is the issue here. Telangana is backward, Hyderabad is not and the TRS knows it is sitting on this gold mine of purchasing power, revenue and bribes.

Hi this is Narender reddy , Harish Rao is very good leader among all political leaders in telangana.. I am a very big fan

4. Vidyasagar - జూలై 30, 2010

For 600 to 700 years Marathas and Knnadigas were part of Telangana Hyderabad province but in 1953 during State reorganization NONE of Maratha or Kannadiga brethren ever made Hyderabad city was an issue. Hyderabad is always an gold mine – a GOLD for past, present and future. The immence potential and wealth of Hyderabad was the very reason the greedy Andherawalas and Seema gangsters reached Hyderabad like flesh eating flies. Hyderabad is Telangana or Armed resistance of 1946-48 repeats.

5. Sreenivas - సెప్టెంబర్ 9, 2010

Harish Rao is a good leader but fighting for a wrong cause.

asking for separate telangana is anti-national.

I wish Harish Rao joins TDP and bring TDP to power.

Satyam - సెప్టెంబర్ 29, 2010

You are a fool, TDP is andhra party.
Harish is Telangana Bidaa…if you want to see come to siddipet i will show you …what is TDP and What is Telangana

i suggest you to find a capital city for andhra pradesh state…whether you want chilakaluru peta or peddapuram or vishakapatnam

roopas - ఆగస్ట్ 28, 2013

Mr.Satyam..Thanks for the valuable advice…Try to come out of hyderabad and talk..Why is that there were no enough number of agitations out of hyderabad. Even you people are interested in hyderabad. It is because of TDP,you are able to talk about hyderabad in such a way..never forget the past…Definitely,If the state is to be bifurcated,I can bet no other place in telangana would flourish as good as hyderabad.That is what it tells.
Thanks a lot.

MY suggtion to congress leaders,you may plan to do darna before babu’s house on same day for tdp leraders darna before sonia’s house.This is the counter for TDP.The demand is what is opinion of babu.TWO EYES/TWO SONS/.
One more most importent thing is TDP telangana leaders are mis-guided by babu.
My opinion on TDP is wind-over party in telangana.but some TDP leaders are very effective and strong leaders in telangana like MR.REVANTH/ERRABELLI/NAGAM ETC.

This is my personnal opinion.

Hello Mr.Harish Rao. I saw youtube clip of your behaviour with a person on duty at Andhra Bhavan. Are you a person representing people in a democratic country. You again reconviened press meet and said it was in emotion. Is that an excuse to say emotional. If you are so emotional how can you represent around 500000 people of SDPT. Don’t you have reponsibility to allow people to do there duities . Who are you to hijack there common rights?

I have few points to tell you.

a) Generally people will follow there leader if you behave this emotional with out following rules what your follower will do ?

b) This is not the first time you are so arogant and stupid a reminder.
while talking to laxmi parvathi and lagadapthi in TV9 interview you did the same.

c) Don’t show your emotions please protect common peoples rights and values. you are not Monarc

My suggestion

First consult a physcologist and have some counselling.

I am SDPT guy from barathnagar( OR Shivaji nagar) and my house is not very far from your Harish rao) house. Because some time people feel thats this is Andhra peoples comment and ignore it.

telangana is our birth right.
indians were also suppressed by the britishers as now the andhra people are doing.
then we got the independence as there were no selffish dogs like today we have specially some ministers.
hate them kick them then we will get telangana is a gold plate.
jai telangana jai jai telangana
may the souls of telangana amaraverulu rest in peace.
