Andhra settlers active in T-stir

Deccan Chronicle, December 23rd 2009, By Our Correspondent

NIZAMABAD, Dec. 22: Settlers from Andhra regions in the district are actively participating in the ongoing agitation for a separate Telangana state. Mingling with local people, elders and the younger generation of Andhra settler families have been declaring their support to the separate state cause.

Leading businessmen of Andhra origin have also extended their cooperation to the Telangana agitators.

There are hundreds of families from coastal Andhra settled in the district In the early 1950s. Families from Guntur, Krishna, East Godavari, West Godavari and Prakasam districts settled here. Interestingly, they all have settled in the command area of the Nizamsagar project.

The Nizamsagar project, Nizam Sugar Factory at Bodhan, Lakshmi Saraswathi Paper Mill at Neela and Nizamabad Cooperative Sugar Factory at Sarangapur provided employment to them in those days. Following this, numerous Andhra families purchased thousands of acres of land from locals and developed commercial crops like sugarcane, cotton, paddy and vegetables. They also proudly declared themselves as settlers, and set up new housing localities such as Saloora camp and Penta camp in Bodhan area.

They entered the business of hotels, educational institutions, hospitals and cinema theatres in the district.

Fearing consequences of not supporting separate Telangana agitation, they are now supporting the separate state cause. Settler families of Kothapally, Laknapur, Shatninagar, Durganagar and Krishnanagar staged a rasta roko at Makloor mandal headquarters on Monday, demanding a separate Telangana state.

Hundreds of agitators sat on Nizamabad-Nandipet road and raised slogans against the government. They also found fault with Vijayawada MP Lagadapati Rajagopal for creating unnecessarily trouble for the proposed new state
