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…)

Why everyone wants a slice of the Hyderabad pie
Parsa Venkateshwar Rao Jr, DNA, October 29,2013

The meeting was fortuitous but rewarding. An Andhra businessman wanting to be a politician from East Godavari district – the heart of coastal Andhra – was waiting to meet a senior Congress functionary-cum-minister talked candidly about what Hyderabad means to Andhraites. He cannot be named because his lobbying for a ticket in the forthcoming elections would be torpedoed if he is identified.

He runs a college in Rajahmundry, headquarters of East Godavari district. Rajahmundry is a celebrated place in Andhra history, also known as Rajamahendravaram of yore. And he also runs a college in Nalgonda. It is an example of the entrepreneurial panache of the Andhraites. He has done his Bachelor’s of Commerce (B Com) and law at Andhra University. He has also done a course from the Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT), New Delhi. (మరింత…)

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…)

Cheruku Sudhakar, a Test Case!
The Hans India, December 10, 2011
K Ramachandra Murthy

Soon after the untenable PD Act was revoked, the dreaded NSA was invoked. It is entirely unwarranted and unethical

“First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out, because I was not a Jew. Then they came for the communists and I did not speak out, because I was not a communist. Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out, because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak out for me”.

This was the confession of a German pastor Niemoeler who was taken away by the Nazis during the Second World War. The decision of the State government on Tuesday to order detention of Cheruku Sudhakar for 12 months in jail under the National Security Act (NSA) reminded me of the pastor’s plight as quoted by noted journalist and diplomat Kuldip Nayar in his book ‘Judgment’ which was written after he came out of prison as the Emergency was lifted in 1977.

Dr Cheruku Sudhakar was with PDSU when he was a student. I was not with that organization as a student. He worked for Janashakti group of Chandra Pullareddy. I don’t subscribe to the ideology of that party. Far from it. He differed with CP group on caste question and joined Veeranna group of Telangana Mahasabha. (మరింత…)

Telangana remains paralysed
The New Indian Express, 14 September, 2011

HYDERABAD: The administration remained paralysed in Telangana region of Andhra Pradesh Wednesday as the indefinite strike by over 400,000 government employees continued for the second day.

Delivery of civic services was hit in 10 districts of Telangana as employees stayed away from work to demand formation of separate Telangana state.

The “people’s strike” called by Telangana Joint Action Committee (JAC) did not have much impact in Hyderabad, but was total in districts like Warangal, Karimnagar, Medak, Nalgonda, Nizamabad and Adilabad.

Work in the state secretariat was not affected as about 85 percent of the employees attended their duties but the leaders of Telangana movement claimed that the employees from the region constitute only 15 percent of the total workforce. The impact was also partial in offices of other departments in the state capital.

The strike led to tension in some offices in Hyderabad as a section of employees refused to join the strike. In the office of Hyderabad district collector, the supporters of the strike had heated arguments with those who refused to join them.

In the office of the district collector in Khammam, striking employees ransacked the office of joint collector as he was attending work. (మరింత…)

Telangana minister Venkata Reddy threatens fast-unto-death

Hyderabad, August 24: A minister from Andhra Pradesh’s Telangana region Wednesday threatened to go on a fast-unto-death from Oct 1 to achieve a separate Telangana state.

Infrastructure and Investments Minister Komatireddy Venkata Reddy told reporters that if the central government failed to make an announcement to carve out separate Telangana state, he would launch the fast along with one lakh people in his native Nalgonda district.

Venkata Reddy, the only minister from Telangana who boycotted the state cabinet meeting last week, said he would stay away from his duties till the central government agreed to the demand for a separate state.
The minister also said he would resign both as minister and from the Congress if the demand was turned down.

Venkata Reddy said he would wait till Sep 30 for a clear statement from the centre. If no favourable statement was forthcoming by then, he would join the people to intensify the Telangana movement. He criticised his ministerial colleagues for resuming their duties. “What is it that they have achieved to resume their duties?” he wondered. (మరింత…)

New dists to check Telangana state demand?
M N Samdani, TNN, Apr 11, 201

GUNTUR: Opening a Pandora’s box, the Congress government is working on redesigning of districts in the state. Though the government claims that it is being done taking in view of the serious imbalances in the development of rural areas, analysts believe the new agenda is being thrust on the political stage only to counter the separate Telangana statehood issue.

Rural development minister Dokka Manikya Varaprasad, who is working on a study paper in this regard, said he would submit it to the state cabinet by this month-end. He said that lack of administration in the interior areas of the existing districts was the “real hurdle in extending the fruits of various government schemes to the poor.”

Sources said the study paper is likely to advocate formation of at least eight to 10 new districts in the state. “Even small states like Orissa and Karnataka have more districts than AP. Creation of new districts is the only solution to overcome underdevelopment,” the minister argued.

After taking over the reins of the rural development ministry, he started an exercise in checking imbalances in the flow of funds and their reach. He discussed the issue with chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy and secured his permission for making the study on creation of new districts.

“The demand for creation of new districts has been there for long and I have only started the exercise to look into the demand,” he told TOI. He felt that AP deserves to have at least 35 districts. He said they could start by bifurcating big and completely undeveloped districts which alone would add at least seven districts to the existing 23. (మరింత…)
