Patnaik Plea For Polavaram
Tathya, Bhbaneswar, September 20, 2015

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has urged the Prime Minister Narendra Modi not to allow construction of the Polavaram Project as it will harm the interests of Odisha as the project is being taken up without addressing the legitimate concerns of the State.

Mr.Patnaik writing a letter to the Prime Minister Mr.Modi has expressed serious concern over Polavarm Project, which is being taken up unilaterally by the Government of Andhra Pradesh even the matter is pending in the Supreme Court.

Chief Minister has said that the Polavaram Project does not qualify to be considered as a National Project as it does not satisfy the norms. Sadly the Union Government has considered the Polavaram as a National Project, officials say.

Impressing upon the Prime Minister about the magnitude of the consequences that people of Odisha will have to face like submergence of tribal lands, the flooding of fertile agricultural lands, mass displacement of villages, Mr.Patnaik said that all of these can be avoided if only an opportunity is given for a final resolution of disputes as the case is pending before the Supreme Court.

Why Telangana’ KCR has got nickname of ‘rollback CM’
Prasad Nichenametla, Hindustan Times, Hyderabad, September 13, 2015

Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has acquired a reputation for being a quick decision-maker, except that the decisions are rolled back just as quickly.

Political rivals dubbed him “Rollback CM” after a series of decisions Rao took upon becoming the first chief minister of the country’s newest state in June last year were shelved under public pressure.

“When a CM takes a decision, he should consider all the pros and cons beforehand. Rao is driven by momentary emotions. His decisions prove he lacks the maturity to head a state,” Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, working president, Telangana Congress, told HT.

The CM, on his part, has put up a wavering defence of his decisions, only to yield quickly to swelling resentment from various quarters. (మరింత…)

Cheap liquor in Telangana – Government vs Civil Society సెప్టెంబర్ 2, 2015

Cheap liquor is a cheap deception by the Telangana government
Prof. P L Vishweshwer Rao, Siasat, Ausgut 31, 2015

The euphoria among the people of Telangana of having won a separate state of Telangana after decades of struggle is slowly dissipating thanks to the short-sighted and anti-people decisions of the State Government headed by K C Chandrashekar Rao. The very same people who voted the TRS to power, stood by the party, buttressed it with all their might, faced lathis, teargas and bullets all seem to have gone in vain. The disillusionment of the people, of the average citizen, is all too evident. Their dream of ushering in a ‘golden’ Telangana has all but disappeared in thin air.

Within a short period of just about a year, the true anti-people colours of the K Chandrashekar Rao government have been revealed dashing to the ground the huge expectations of the people of their ‘very own’ government that it would convert its promises into action. Instead of giving land and houses to the poor, instead of making available free education, instead of creating of employment opportunities, instead of making the lives of his ‘akka-chellendlu’ and ‘tallulu’ meaningful and a little more comfortable, he has roped in the state machinery to increase the consumption of liquor among the masses, basically the poor, by making available liquor at cheaper rates.

Telangana to digitise land records in 7 districts

The Hindu, Hyderabad, September 1, 2015

Centre to share Rs. 120 cr. of the Rs. 150-cr. project. The government is finalising the agency by inviting tenders and, thereafter, survey would be launched, a senior official said.

In one of the first Centrally-sponsored projects, the Telangana government is set to digitise land records in seven districts of the State to settle long-pending land disputes at a cost of Rs. 150 crore, of which the Central share is Rs. 120 crore.

The project was sanctioned for districts other than Hyderabad and Nizamabad under the National Land Records Management Project with the task of surveying lands, updating records and digitising the same.

The government is finalising the agency by inviting tenders and, thereafter, survey would be launched, a senior official said. In Nizamabad, the records are already digitised and updated under the Bhoo Bharati scheme, also sponsored by the Centre. However, Hyderabad was kept out of the project as it would require a different strategy for implementation. (మరింత…)
