Ghadis fade into history in Telangana

The awe-inspiring symbol of feudal power, Manor houses, locally known as Ghadi which are found across Telangana have faded into oblivion.

Ghadis are dwelling places of people who had wielded power on local communities during and after Nizam’s era in Telangana districts. Usually a feudal lord owned thousands of acres of land and had under his control over half a dozen villages and even more. The feudal lords belonged to all castes, mostly upper castes – Reddy, Brahmin and Velama communities.

The crumbled Ghadis and ruins can be seen now. The popular Ghadis in Warangal district – the one at Atmakur owned by Reddy community had collapsed over the decades as they left the place long ago. The one at Visnur in Palakurthy mandal owned by one Ramachandra Reddy is now locked and abandoned. (మరింత…)

Jayasudha turns her back on Jagan Reddy
The New Indian Express, Sep 16, 2011

HYDERABAD: Secunderabad Congress MLA Jayasudha is thinking of distancing herself from YSR Congress chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy whom she supported while he was in the party and has been sailing with after he left the party. This became evident from her chat she had with Express here on Thursday. She said: “There is no point in resigning on the Telangana issue since those who did so were only enacting a drama to deceive people. If all of them are really committed to the cause, they should go to Delhi and mount pressure on the Centre. Let all of them stage a dharna in front of 10, Janpath,” she says. (మరింత…)

15 Telangana legislators submit resignations
IANS, 14 February 2010

HYDERABAD: Fifteen legislators from the Telangana region on Sunday submitted their resignations to the state assembly speaker to protest the terms of reference of the Srikrishna panel set up by the central government to study the demand for a separate state.

Stating that the terms of reference were not favourable for the formation of Telangana state, all 10 legislators of the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) submitted their resignations to Speaker Kirankumar Reddy. Two legislators from ruling Congress and one each from Telugu Desam Party (TDP), Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Praja Rajyam Party (PRP) also gave their resignations. (మరింత…)

Over 16,000 migrant Gothi koyas identified in Khammam district

Special Correspondent, The Hindu January 2, 2010

They hail from strife-torn districts of Chhattisgarh

BHADRACHALAM: A habitation-wise enumeration taken up by an official agency in coordination with some non- governmental organisations working on the problems of internally displaced persons (IDPs) helped in identifying some 16,361 Gothi koyas who migrated to Khammam from the strife-torn districts in Chhattisgarh.

The migrant population could find shelter in 203 habitations, mainly in Bhadrachalam revenue division.

As many as 110 of the Gothi koya habitations had come up in the reserve forests and a few of them fell in the core area. This rendered the provision of basic amenities an impossible task. The administration prepared plans for reaching out to a majority of the 4,030 migrant families living in 20 tribal mandals in the district with facilities such as drinking water, nutrition, medicare and education. It would be difficult to cater to the needs of the IDPs in the event of a fresh wave of migrations, said the officials.

Though migration of Gothi koyas was common to the district for the past two decades, the problem assumed serious proportion after 2004, especially once the Salva Judum activists began to take on the Maoists in Chhattisgarh. Initially, some non-governmental organisations came forward to sink borewells in such habitations. (మరింత…)

Sabita wants to quit over cop action; series of meets called on statehood
PTI, December 7th, 2009

Hyderabad, Dec. 7: The Congress and the state government got busy organising a series of high-level meetings, raising hopes that the nine-day-old imbroglio over the fast of the TRS chief, Mr K. Chandrasekhar Rao, and the Telangana statehood issue could be moving towards resolution.

The Congress core committee, comprising the party president, Mrs Sonia Gandhi, the senior ministers, Mr Pranab Mukherjee, Mr P. Chidambaram, Mr A.K. Antony, among others, and Mrs Gandhi’s political secretary, Mr Ahmad Patel, met in Delhi and discussed the Telangana issue.

Immediately following that, the state government has called for an all party-meeting on the Telangana statehood issue. At this time, it is expected that the meeting will ask Mr Rao to call of his fast and come for talks. The Congress Legislature Party is also expected to meet later at night over the Telangana issue.

Earlier, the protest for a separate state of Telangana took a serious turn as police and paramilitary forces used force to quell student protests at Osmania University during which journalists were also beaten up.

Rapid Action Force (RAF) and police personnel caned students on the campus prevent them from taking out a rally to the state Assembly as a mark of solidarity with Mr Rao, whose fast-unto-death seeking a separate state entered the ninth day.

Ministers from Telangana also took serious note of the incident, the second in the last one week. Home minister P. Sabita Indra Reddy offered to quit. Chief Minister K. Rosaiah met her and other ministers to review the situation. (మరింత…)
