Olympic 2016 silver medallist PV Sindhu has preferred Andhra Pradesh over Telangana to accept a government job offer. The star shuttler, who was born in Hyderabad, has accepted the job offer of Andhra Pradesh, the state her parents come from.
Sindhu will soon be appointed as deputy collector in Andhra Pradesh. She has conveyed her willingness to accept the post which was offered by the state government soon after she bagged silver in women’s singles at the Rio Olympics last year.
Sindu’s mother Vijayalakshmi said they were soon expecting appointment order.
While felicitating Sindu at a function here on her return from Olympics, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu had announced that the state will give a group-I officer’s job to the shuttler. (మరింత…)

More often than not, it so happens that every legitimate political struggle has two fronts. The words ‘legitimate’ and ‘political’ themselves represent the function and evolution of each front. The struggle acquires legitimacy — as a genuine people’s aspiration — through grassroots mass-mobilisation, usually a feature of participatory democracy.

This front now has to fight the political battle within the existent power structure. In a parliamentary democracy, the latter usually takes the form of a political vanguard party. (మరింత…)

According to the census of 2011, Adivasis account for 9.34% of the total population in Telangana.

The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government has reorganised and added new districts in the state, increasing the number of districts in Telangana from 11 to 31.

This is clearly explained in this article here by senior journalist Kingshuk Nag. But more importantly this exercise by the TRS government will have a massive impact on the adivasi population of Telangana. (మరింత…)
