IANS, February 2017, Vijayawada
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…)

Remembering Guda Anjanna – The signature song of Telangana’s Dalit Revolution
Karthik Navayan, June 23, 2016 Round Table India
The first time I heard about Guda Anjanna (1 November 1955 – 21 June 2016), through my classmate and Anjanna’s nephew (brother’s son) Guda Rajendar, in 1989, when I was studying in 8th class. Anjanna belongs to Lingapur village of Dandepally Mandal in Adilabad District. At the time, I was studying in the Dandepally social welfare hostel, and Anjanna’s nephew Guda Rajendar was my classmate. Anjanna had two more well-educated brothers I knew at the time. Anjanna’s elder brother, Dr Guda Chandraiah (MBBS), was a Dalit leader and activist too. Later, after I left hostel, I heard that Dr Chandraiah died at an young age. Guda Shanthaiah, Guda Anjanna’s younger brother was also a poet and songwriter; he too died at a very young age. I saw all of the three brothers of Guda family in my student life. They were all inspiring people.

20 lakh people from Telangana, AP change Aadhar card address
Deccan Chronicle, U Sudhakar Reddy, June 23, 2016
Hyderabad: At least 12 lakh people in Andhra Pradesh and 8 lakh in Telangana have applied and got their addresses changed in their Aadhar database over the past two years. Change of address and in other particulars like marital status is crucial as they are linked with land ownership data, property tax details and gas subsidy Aadhar cards are must for government schemes, to avail bank loans and verification linked to them.
Any discrepancies in Aadhar data will curtail public from availing services since banks also cross check data provided for opening bank account. Customers fill up KYC form and as well as loan sanctions form with Unique Identification Authority of India authorities. (మరింత…)

“No settler here, even I’m from outside”
KTR says strong passions are passé and the government has to take everyone along
Panchayat Raj Minister K.T. Rama Rao made it clear that the city’s population does not lend itself for clustering into “settlers” and “non-settlers”, as most residents here are migrants from other places.
“Even I am not from here. I migrated from Siddipet. In fact, even America is a country of immigrants,” he said, at the ‘Meet the Press’ event organised by the Telangana State Union of Working Journalists here on Tuesday.
“It is true that we had given slogans like ‘Jaago, Bhaago’, and we are not apologetic about it now. Such were the passions then, when leaders from Andhra tried to hinder Telangana State. Today the passions are not there. We have to take everyone along. This is the government, even for those who didn’t vote for us,” Mr. Rao elaborated, responding to a statement that local people are angry with government’s efforts to please “settlers”. (మరింత…)

N Rahul, The Hindu, January 11, 2016
All parties, without exception, are scrambling for votes of ‘settlers’, particularly of Andhra Pradesh origin, in the elections to the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation, as they constitute a sizeable population and have the potential to swing the results.
The ruling TRS has tried to impress on the section that the dividing line between people of AP and Telangana origin had withered away after the general elections in 2014 when they voted overwhelmingly in favour of Telugu Desam Party and the BJP. The Opposition, however, reminded them that the scars from wounds of bifurcation were still visible. This was clearly visible from the tweet of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu’s son Lokesh in the hash tag ‘#HyderabadBarbaad’, wherein he said “two faced TRS proves it again. One that cries foul at settlers for votes, another that sympathises them, again for votes.”
The Commercial Taxes Minister T. Srinivas Yadav displayed the goodies of TRS for settlers at a press conference here on Sunday, when he said he would be visiting Bheemavaram and other places in East and West Godavari districts to participate in Sankranti celebrations. Mr. Yadav had been going there for several years to take part in cockfights during the festival, but this time, he said, it was only to celebrate. (మరింత…)

The Times of India, November 27, 2105

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…)

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…)
