Poll results show Telangana cannot be wished away
Wednesday, 21 March 2012 Hyderabad:

The writing on the wall has become clearer for the ruling Congress and principal opposition Telugu Desam Party in Andhra Pradesh: they are facing a serious survival threat and the demand for a separate Telangana state cannot be wished away.

Results of the by-elections to seven Assembly seats saw Congress and TDP, which refused to acknowledge the Telangana factor, drawing a blank on Wednesday and clearly establishing that fortunes of these two major parties are on the wane, a warning signal ahead of another round of by-polls to 18 Assembly constituencies in the next few months.

Also, the resounding success of the Telangana Rashtra Samiti at the cost of the Congress and the TDP reaffirms the importance of the Telangana movement.

Last but not the least, victory of YSR Congress candidate N Prasanna Kumar Reddy in Kovur in Coastal Andhra region could be an indicator of things to come.

The YSRC is emerging a force to reckon with in the state politics, an ominous sign for both the Congress and the TDP.

That the “Telangana sentiment” won in the six segments in the region need not be re-emphasised.

The TRS (four), the BJP (one) and even the lone Independent candidate won on the Telangana plank.

It was a morale-boosting victory for the BJP in the single seat it contested in Mahbubnagar where it beat the TRS by a margin of 1897 votes, leaving the Congress and the TDP in third and fourth positions. (మరింత…)

Polling on in seven Andhra assembly seats
Siasat, Sunday, 18 March 2012

March 18: Bypolls were on in seven assembly constituencies of Andhra Pradesh Sunday, including six in the Telangana region, with over 13.82 lakh voters eligible to exercise their franchise

Polling began amid tight security at 8 a.m. The results will decide the fate of 67 candidates belonging to various political parties. Voters formed long queues outside several polling stations in the constituencies.

The bypolls are a result of vacancies that arose due to the resignations of two legislators of the Congress party, one of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP), three rebels of the TDP and the death of one independent legislator.

Unlike the previous byelections, lack of the Telangana sentiment this time has made the going tough for Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) in the six constituencies that fall in the region.

About 10,000 policemen and polling personnel have been deployed for smooth and peaceful conduct of the polling at 1,660 polling centres. (మరింత…)

‘Elections, collections’ is only agenda of TRS: Kiran
Correspondent, The Hindu, March 16, 2012

Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy on Thursday alleged that the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) had no agenda other than ‘elections and collections’.

Addressing an impressive election meeting here, he faulted TRS chief K. Chandrasekhar Rao for not quitting his post when his party legislators tendered resignations.

Continuing his attack on Mr. Rao, Mr. Reddy said in the 2004 general elections, the latter forged an alliance with the Congress and won the Karimnagar Lok Sabha seat only to resign and get re-elected with a margin of two lakh. In the subsequent by-election in 2008, he won by a mere 15,000 votes. Fearing defeat, he shifted to Mahabubnagar in alliance with the TDP and won it. (మరింత…)

Sand mafia terrorising Karimnagar officials
Naveen Kumar Tallam
Express News Service, 16 March 2012

KARIMNAGAR: Despite having knowledge of unabated illegal sand mining, revenue officials in Karimnagar district are able to do only little to check it. They are fearing to stop or seize the sand-laden vehicles as the owners had reportedly formed a syndicate and are maintaining informers. If any police officer or government officials tries to seize vehicles involved in the illegal act, the sand mafia reportedly threatens them. About two months ago, two persons died under suspicious circumstances in Mallaram and Rudraram villages. There are allegations that the sand mafia is behind the murders. (మరింత…)
