Poll results show Telangana cannot be wished away
Wednesday, 21 March 2012 Hyderabad:

The writing on the wall has become clearer for the ruling Congress and principal opposition Telugu Desam Party in Andhra Pradesh: they are facing a serious survival threat and the demand for a separate Telangana state cannot be wished away.

Results of the by-elections to seven Assembly seats saw Congress and TDP, which refused to acknowledge the Telangana factor, drawing a blank on Wednesday and clearly establishing that fortunes of these two major parties are on the wane, a warning signal ahead of another round of by-polls to 18 Assembly constituencies in the next few months.

Also, the resounding success of the Telangana Rashtra Samiti at the cost of the Congress and the TDP reaffirms the importance of the Telangana movement.

Last but not the least, victory of YSR Congress candidate N Prasanna Kumar Reddy in Kovur in Coastal Andhra region could be an indicator of things to come.

The YSRC is emerging a force to reckon with in the state politics, an ominous sign for both the Congress and the TDP.

That the “Telangana sentiment” won in the six segments in the region need not be re-emphasised.

The TRS (four), the BJP (one) and even the lone Independent candidate won on the Telangana plank.

It was a morale-boosting victory for the BJP in the single seat it contested in Mahbubnagar where it beat the TRS by a margin of 1897 votes, leaving the Congress and the TDP in third and fourth positions. (మరింత…)

Telangana bypolls: EVMs may be used in 7 constituencies
Special Correspondent , The Hindu, Jul 11, 2010

HYDERABAD: The option of deploying electronic voting machines (EVMs) in the ensuing Assembly byelections in the Telangana region became available to the Election Commission following the rejection of as many as 213 nomination papers of independents during scrutiny on Saturday.

As a result, the number of nominations in six out of the 12 constituencies fell below 64, the maximum number that can be handled by the EVMs. The scrutiny was conducted by central observers deputed by the Election Commission after the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) asked hundreds of its partymen to file nominations as a ploy to pre-empt the use of EVMs, which, it feels, can be tampered with. This had swelled the number of candidates to 926.

The number of nominations in Nizamabad (Urban) constituency was below 64 even before this exercise was undertaken. Consequently, EVMs are likely to be used in Nizamabad (14 nominations), Sirpur (55), Chennur-SC (60), Mancherial (49), Dharmapuri-SC (61), Vemulawada (42) and Siddipet (45). (మరింత…)

Protest outside North Block, 21 detained
PTI, New Delhi, January 5, 2010

Nine MLAs and an MP from Andhra Pradesh are among 21 protestors taken into preventive custody on Tuesday when about 100 activists gathered at high-security North Block violating prohibitory orders, as a meeting on Telengana issue was being held in the Home Ministry.

Catching the security officials off-guard in the VVIP area, the anti and pro-Telengana protestors gathered before the building and raised slogans.

About hundred activists were there when the meeting on Telengana issue was in progress. Police said 21 of them were taken into preventive custody, but were later released.

The North Block area, where any gathering is prohibited under section 144 of Cr PC, became the hub of activity as supporters belonging to both the groups emerged from nowhere and started raising slogans and displaying placards.

However, the situation was brought under control as authorities rushed in more force to defuse the situation and took some of the protestors into custody. (మరింత…)
