A drift between Kodandram and KCR was inevitable, for, their means towards the end were different.
Pavan Korada, TheNEWSMinute, Friday, February 24, 2017
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. And once this popular aspiration is digested by the people and snowballs into a mass movement, then a second front emerges. 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…)

Antony panel seeks safeguards for Seemandhra people in Telangana, ruffles leaders
CR Sukumar, ET Bureau, 16 November 2013
HYDERABAD: The Antony committee, formed by the Congress to assuage fears of party members on the state’s bifurcation, has recommended that safeguards be implemented to protect property owned by Seemandhra citizens in Telangana.
This has ruffled Telangana leaders, who said such a move would go against the rights of the democratically elected government that would come to power once the state is formed. “It is a legitimate constitutional right of any democratically elected government to review the decisions of the previous governments and take corrective actions,” said Sravan Dasoju, who is on the politburo of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi, which spearheaded the movement to create a separate state.

Telangana crisis: Seemandhra power employees call off strike; Shinde vows justice to Andhra
HT Correspondent and Agencies, Hindustan Times, Hyderabad, October 10, 2013
Agitating Seemandhra electricity employees today called off strike and allowed restoration of transmission and distribution of power in 13 districts of north coastal Andhra region that faces cyclone Phailin threat.
After talks with chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy, leaders of Joint Action Committee (JAC) of Seemandhra electricity employees told reporters that they were temporarily suspending the strike on humanitarian grounds.
One of the leaders R Saibaba said if necessary they would resume the strike to pressurise the Centre to keep the state united.
The chief minister appealed to the employees to end the strike as it was causing severe hardships to people and also in view of the threat to coastal region from severe cyclonic storm in Bay of Bengal. (మరింత…)

KCR lists ‘Telangana Traitors’
The New Indian Express, Hyderabad 2 October, 2013
Reiterating that those who oppose Telangana statehood are traitors, TRS chief K Chandrashekar Rao said he will not say it once, but lakhs of times because it is true.
Speaking to mediapersons here on Tuesday, he found fault with CPI state secretary K Narayana and BJP leader Bandaru Dattatreya for criticising his comments during the Sakala Jana Bheri. He wondered why the two leaders find no fault with those opposing Telangana and criticising him and the movement constantly in a foul language. (మరింత…)

KCR stirs a hornet’s nest, hopes to bank on BJP if congress fails Telangana
Express News Service, 30th September 2013
At a time when doubts are cropping up in Telangana over the Congress promise to carve out a separate State, TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao on Sunday said if it hoodwinks people, the other national party, BJP, will surely divide the State after it comes to power.
Addressing the Sakala Janula Bheri, a massive public meeting here at the Nizam College grounds, he said, “the BJP has been consistently supporting the Telangana cause. Hence, there should not be any fear if the Congress fails to keep its word. The BJP will form the T State. I thank BJP leaders Sushma Swaraj and others for repeatedly backing the demand for a T State.”
Sharpening his attack on the ongoing Samaikyandhra movement, KCR once again waded into a controversy when he termed the stir “artificial” and branded all those born in Andhra and Rayalaseema “traitors.” (మరింత…)

Uncertainty on Telangana creation persists
PTI, October 24,2012
HYDERABAD: Uncertainty over creation of a new Telangana state persists as the Congress high command and the Centre continued discussions on the issue.
“The process of negotiations is continuing and no decision will be possible till a consensus is arrived at (on the demand for bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh),” is reportedly the refrain of Congress leaders.
A group of ministers from Telangana region who held “talks” with the Congress top brass in New Delhi last week were given to understand that the party would take its time before announcing anything concrete on the statehood issue.
“We may have to wait till the end of Parliament’s Budget session next year,” one of the ministers, who was part of the group, said on his return here.
Given its preoccupation with too many other issues, including the forthcoming elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh, the Congress leadership was not in a position to focus its attention on Telangana, he pointed out. (మరింత…)

KCR draws a blank in Delhi, feels betrayed
Express News Service – HYDERABAD, 16th September 2012
The Telangana Joint Action Committee has decided to force the Telangana Congress MPs to participate in the Telangana March in Hyderabad on September 30.
TJAC leaders are learnt to have received credible information that TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao, who has been camping in Delhi for several days, has failed to get a positive assurance on creation of Telangana state.
Moreover, the negative signals they had received in Hyderabad in the past were confirmed during his current stay in Delhi, says a close aide to the TRS chief.
Party sources say the TRS chief is now convinced that the Centre is back to its delaying tactics and has betrayed him.
He will be returning shortly to Hyderabad and convening a party Politburo meeting to chalk out future course of action.
“If the Centre announces Telangana state, there will be joy. If not, there will be war,” declared KT Rama Rao, TRS legislator and KCR’s son. (మరింత…)

Will a separate Telangana facilitate merger of TRS and Congress?
A Srinivasa Rao, Mail Today, Hyderabad August 31, 2102
The Telangana Rashtra Samithi, which is spearheading the movement for carving out separate Telangana state by bifurcating Andhra Pradesh, is willing to be merged with the Congress party if there is a positive announcement from the Centre on the Telangana state formation.
According to TRS sources, party president K Chandrasekhara Rao has sent fresh feelers to the Congress bosses in New Delhi to this effect. He told them that he did not mind merging the TRS with the Congress if the Centre commenced the process for Telangana state formation. He insisted that the UPA government must announce a specific time-frame for carving out a new state. (మరింత…)

Seema leaders seek new state
August 27, 2012 Deccan Chronicle, Hyderabad
Leaders from Rayalaseema on Sunday demanded a separate state in the event of a Telangana state being formed stating that they could not remain with Coastal Andhra. In a meeting held in a private function hall in Khairatabad, organised by former TD legislator Byreddy Rajasekhar Reddy, the leaders decided to form a Rayalaseema Joint Action Committee on the lines of the TJAC for Telangana. It was also decided to form JACs for all professional sections of the society to fight against injustice to the region as well as for separate statehood.
Mr Byreddy Rajasekhar Reddy announced that he would undertake a 40-day padayatra covering all the villages in the four districts of Rayalaseema soon. He also demanded TD chief N. Chandrababu Naidu mention the backwardness of the Rayalaseema region in the proposed letter on the Telangana statehood issue in the first week of September. (మరింత…)
