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…)

Time for Telangana
ET Bureau, Jun 1, 201
It is time for the Congress to take the plunge and carve the state of Telangana out of Andhra Pradesh. There are many reasons to do so, not least the fact that historically, state boundaries get drawn and redrawn many times. When it became a republic, India was composed of 14 states. Now, at 28, it has double the number. Many states like Andhra Pradesh itself, were carved out of bigger entities after linguistic or ethnic movements. (మరింత…)

An Eye-opener On Telangana
Power Politics, April 2011
The major defect that Telangana suffers from is lack of data and documentation to advocate against discrimination and disparities perpetuated by leaders coming from other regions. This problem is now being addressed effectively. Telangana: The State of Affairs, edited by M Bharath Bhushan and N Venugopal is a bold attempt to provide a framework to understand the rationale for the demand of Telangana
Telangana is victim of its own leaders who permitted others to exploit it. These leaders are culpable for two reasons : either they are guilty of not knowing the diversion of water, funds and other resources; or they knew it but allowed the injustice to continue without any resistance. For the sin of leaders, people are suffering. It can also be said other way round too : people should have been more conscious to question these leaders and not allowed the leaders to exploit them.
TELANGANA : THE STATE OF AFFAIRS, M Bharath Bhushan, N. Venugopal, AdEd Value Ventures, 2009, Rs 250, pp. 210
Andhra Pradesh unfortunately did not have a leader of state level nature so far. Almost all chief ministers conducted themselves as the leaders of their native district or region and none ruled like a leader of the entire state. Some of the leaders did not do anything for their district or region. People’s representatives who occupied crucial positions in New Delhi were more obedient to Prime Ministers and thus never cared for their state. Some MPs and bureaucrats from Coastal Andhra were over smart and diverted the resources from out of Telangana. This led to serious disparities among the region’s leading to the present state of hostilities and turbulence.

Scholars in a scramble to do research on T
Nikhila Henry, TNN, April 23, 2011
HYDERABAD: The “T” agitation that has played havoc with academic schedules of state universities has had an inadvertent `academic’ side effect. Varsities are now reporting a spurt in research on Telangana this admission season in politically charged university campuses.
Making a beeline to study all things about `T’ are young researchers wanting to take up topics related to the agitation for political and social analysis. Officials of both state and central universities say they are flooded with PhD proposals on cultural and political topics that are specific to the region.
If until a couple of years ago, research on Telangana was largely done in the domain of history, political science and sociology, students from literature and even media classrooms are applying for PhDs on the `T’ region. Subjects they are choosing range from public policy and conflict resolution in the region, economics of regional politics to cultural representations of the region in Telugu literature and linguistic nationalism.

3 TRS MLAs vote for Congress
Deccan Chronicle, March 18, 2001
March 17: It was a rude jolt to the Telangana Rashtra Samiti chief, Mr K. Chandrasekhar Rao, when three TRS MLAs were suspected to have cross voted in the MLCs elections here on Thursday.
The TRS nominee, Mr Mahamood Ali, got only 11 votes as against the anticipated 14 — 11 TRS, two BJP MLAs, Mr G. Kishan Reddy and Mr Laxminarayana, and the rebel Telugu Desam MLA, Mr Pocharam Srinivas Reddy. The TRS leadership is tight-lipped and refused to comment on the cross voting, saying merely that they are trying to investigate what went wrong. (మరింత…)

‘Telangana just a matter of time’
He is the typical new age politician – young, suave and articulate. He served the corporate sector for a while before taking a plunge into politics. However, when it comes to his ideology, Andhra Pradesh legislator K T Rama Rao, also the son of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief K Chandrasekhar Rao, is clear that his party wants nothing short of a separate Telangana.
“The question is not if Telangana is formed; but when Telangana is formed. It may even take a while before the Telangana state is formed, but the fight will go on till a solution is found. No matter who leads it, the demand for statehood has been on the agenda for over four decades now. Telangana has enough leaders to rule the state. Even the Srikrishna committee says as a separate state Telangana is a viable option,” he says. (మరింత…)

TRS chief threatens to boycott Telangana meet
CNN-IBM, Updated Jan 02, 2010
New Delhi: TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao on Sunday said he will not attend the January 6 meeting called by the Central Government in Delhi if two representatives from each party are called.
He said two opinions from each party will only complicate the matters.
The Srikrishna Committee looking into the formation of a separate state of Telengana submitted its report to the Home Minister P Chidambaram on December 30.
Chidambaram had said the report will be made public after consultation with eight political parties in the state on January 6.
The ruling Congress party in Andhra Pradesh is split vertically on its support for a new state. It has 21 MPs from the Andhra-Rayalseema region and 12 from the Telengana region. The state accounts for 33 MPs.
The 12 Telengana MPs are under pressure to quit. Andhra MPs are agitating for a united state, worried about losing out on the rich telangana areas. The congress’ official position is that it favours small states but with a national consensus. Unofficially, the Congress is worried that there will be a rise in similar demands for smaller states like Gorkhaland and Harit Pradesh.
The TRS cheif has found fault with Chidambaram for inviting two representatives from each party. He said two opinions from each party will only complicate matters and also said that he will not attend January 6 meet in Delhi if two representatives from each party are called. (మరింత…)
