Hyderabad: The fight against exorbitant fees charged by private schools has spread to the districts, with student unions undertaking protests.

School Fee Regulation JAC member Nagati Narayana said the issue was not confined to Hyderabad. “Schools in few districts are charging a bomb. No one dared to raise their voice earlier. Now, with so much awareness, people are coming forward and seeking regulation of fees. We are getting inquiries from districts like Nalgonda, Medak, Karimnagar, Warangal, Nizamabad,” he said.

Telangana: In new math, adding more districts will divide politics
Kamalapathi Rao H, Deccan Chronicle, July 8, 2016

Reorganisation of districts will strengthen K. Chandrasekhar Rao and his party TRS in south, east.

Hyderabad: The reorganisation of districts in Telangana state could lead to exclusive zones for the TRS, while edging out the Opposition in some of the proposed districts in the southern and eastern parts of the state.

The TRS has been traditionally strong in the northern districts and Warangal, while it is considerably weak in Ranga Reddy, Mahbubnagar, Nalgonda and Khammam.

Mahbubnagar district will be split into three parts — Mahbubnagar, Wanaparthy and Nagar Kurnool. As per proposals, Wanaparthy district would have Alampur, Gadwal and Wanaparthy from where the TRS has no MLA. The district will become a stronghold of the Congress.

The residual Mahbubnagar district will have Maktal, Narayanpet, De-varakadra, Jadcherla, Shadnagar, Mahbubna-gar and Kodangal. Of these, only Kodangal has a representative from the Telugu Desam. With this, the residual Mahbubnagar district would become a stronghold of the ruling party.

If Kodangal is merged into its neighbouring Ranga Reddy West (Vikarabad) district, the TD would not have any representation from Mahbubnagar district and the TRS will have no opposition. (మరింత…)

207 farmers allegedly committed suicide in Telangana in 4 months
Sreenivas Janyala, October 8, 2014 Indian Express

At least 207 farmers have committed suicide in Telangana in the last four months, according to Rythu Swarajya Vedika, an umbrella group of voluntary organisations working on farmers’ issues. The situation is grim in Warangal where 52 farmers allegedly committed suicide, followed by 35 in Medak, 31 in Adilabad, 28 in Nalgonda, 27 in Karimnagar and 18 in Mahbubnagar.

Inadequate rainfall, dry bore wells, depletion of ground water and scarce irrigation facilities leading to general crop failure have been cited as the reasons that forced these farmers to end their lives.

“A majority of the victims are tenant farmers who pay very high rates to take land on lease, often paying up to Rs 10,000 per acre per season. When their crops fail, they are left in debt. With private financiers hounding them, they take their own lives,’’ said RTI activist B Kondala Reddy who is associated with Rythu Swarajya Vedika, and Caring Citizens Collective, an NGO. The Agriculture Department officials said cotton and chilli farmers have been hit hard, because of unseasonal showers and lack of sufficient rainfall. (మరింత…)

Big scam in Telangana green drive
DC Correspondent, October 07, 2014

Hyderabad: The ambitious Haritha Haaram project of the Telangana State government to improve greenery in all the 10 districts by planting over 230 crore saplings in three years has hit a roadblock. Tenders being called to procure crores of polythene covers to supply the saplings have become controversial with contractors forming syndicates to bag the contracts for higher prices.

The government had decided to plant 40 lakh saplings per year in each Assembly constituency, totaling 1.20 crore saplings in each constituency in three years. It has constituted Haritha Haaram committees in each district with the joint collector as chairman and officials from Forest and Horticulture departments as members to monitor the tender process. District-wise tenders had been invited to procure polythene covers. (మరింత…)

Its predictions going wrong, TRS decides to revive stir

Express News Service, Hyderabad, 28 August 2012

The TRS leadership, which has been claiming that it has received signals of a favourable decision on the separate Telangana issue from the Centre and an announcement will be made in just a couple of months, has now come to the opinion that the Congress led UPA government at the Centre might defer a decision till the 2014 general election.

Though Telangana leaders of the Congress are time and again saying that their high command will take a final call on the issue soon, the TRS leadership has come to think otherwise.

After closely watching the developments in Delhi, the pink party leadership has formed an opinion that the UPA government is not in a position to deliver on its promise.

According to the TRS leadership, if the Centre wants to make any announcement on Telangana, it will do so only just before the 2014 elections. (మరింత…)

Massive agitation in sight as congress plans autonomous regional council for Telangana
A Srinivasa Rao, Mail Today, Hyderabad, August 19, 2012

The Congress high command is mulling over the proposal of constituting an autonomous Telangana Regional Council a solution to the contentious Telangana issue in Andhra Pradesh. Having realized that the indecisiveness in taking a decision on the Telangana demand has cost the party heavily in the state, the Congress leadership is understood to be working on the proposal for autonomous regional council for Telangana, on the lines of Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Council, which has recently transformed into Gorkhaland Territorial Administration with considerable autonomy for the local tribes.

An empowered Telangana regional council is part of the sixth option recommended by the Justice BN Srikrishna Committee in December 2010 as the best way forward on the Telangana issue. According to the committee, the regional council would be equipped with adequate funds, functions and functionaries. It would be headed by a legislator with cabinet rank and would provide a legislative consultative mechanism for subjects like planning and economic development, water and irrigation, education, skill development and vocational education, local administration and public health.

Telangana Congress leaders may float new party
Jinka Nagaraju, TNN | Apr 29, 2012 The Times of India

HYDERABAD: Caught between a party high command that appears to be indifferent to the separate state demand and complete political isolation in their region, Telangana Congress leaders are veering round to perhaps the only option open to them: Floating a sub-regional political outfit.

In a series of informal meetings over the past few weeks, during which the Congress high command moved from a stance of complete apathy to the suspension of 8 MPs from the Lok Sabha on the statehood issue, the Telangana Congress leaders have more or less concluded that steering an independent course by which they can up the ante on Telangana is the only way to ensure their political survival.

The T leaders are of the view that the decisive moment to part ways with the Congress has come. “While the bypolls to 18 assembly seats and one Lok Sabha constituency can be politically course changing for the state, the Congress high command appears to be preoccupied with the Presidential poll. The party’s silence after July will be taken as a clear ‘No’ to Telangana. Then, we will take the matter to the people not as Congressmen but as Telangana Congressmen,” said one MP. (మరింత…)

‘Elections, collections’ is only agenda of TRS: Kiran
Correspondent, The Hindu, March 16, 2012

Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy on Thursday alleged that the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) had no agenda other than ‘elections and collections’.

Addressing an impressive election meeting here, he faulted TRS chief K. Chandrasekhar Rao for not quitting his post when his party legislators tendered resignations.

Continuing his attack on Mr. Rao, Mr. Reddy said in the 2004 general elections, the latter forged an alliance with the Congress and won the Karimnagar Lok Sabha seat only to resign and get re-elected with a margin of two lakh. In the subsequent by-election in 2008, he won by a mere 15,000 votes. Fearing defeat, he shifted to Mahabubnagar in alliance with the TDP and won it. (మరింత…)

Sand mafia terrorising Karimnagar officials
Naveen Kumar Tallam
Express News Service, 16 March 2012

KARIMNAGAR: Despite having knowledge of unabated illegal sand mining, revenue officials in Karimnagar district are able to do only little to check it. They are fearing to stop or seize the sand-laden vehicles as the owners had reportedly formed a syndicate and are maintaining informers. If any police officer or government officials tries to seize vehicles involved in the illegal act, the sand mafia reportedly threatens them. About two months ago, two persons died under suspicious circumstances in Mallaram and Rudraram villages. There are allegations that the sand mafia is behind the murders. (మరింత…)
