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…)

The fort in Nizamabad district is an ideal getaway as it is just 180 km from Hyderabad
P. RAM MOHAN, The Hindu 29 August 2014
Little known Koulas fort dating back to the fourteenth century, spread across six square km and tucked away in a corner of backward Jukkal mandal of Nizamabad district, has the potential of becoming a much sought after tourist destination.
Situated on the border of Telangana, Karnataka and Maharashtra States, 180 km from Hyderabad and 100 km from the district headquarter town of Nizamabad, Koulas fort can be a tourists’ delight as a quick getaway for one day. The trip can also be tagged on with a visit to the historic Nizamsagar, the irrigation project built by the seventh Nizam on the Manjira, and Koulasnala projects close by. (మరింత…)

Vote for Congress for development: CM
Express News Service, 15 March 2012
ADILABAD/ NIZAMABAD: Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy has called upon the people in Adilabad to vote for the Congress if they wanted to have development in their constituency. He was addressing a public meeting in Adilabad, as part of campaigning for party candidate C Ramachandra Reddy who is contesting the bypolls.
Launching a tirade against the TDP president, he said that farmers, BPL families and minorities suffered a lot due to ‘misgoverance’ by Chandrababu Naidu.
He listed out various development programmes taken up under the Congress like the `1-a-kg, interest free loans to women groups, loans to farmers, pensions to the poor, physically handicapped and others. Under the NREGS, an amount of Rs 9.70 crore was released and works worth Rs 1.14 crore were provided to people in the district during the last five years, the chief minister said. Kiran Reddy promised to give 50 per cent reservation to women in the upcoming local body polls. (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…)

TRS loses sheen in Nizamabad
April 25, 2011 DC Correspondent, Nizamabad
April 24: Lack of leadership and perennial dissidence and revolts against the party high command have adversely affected the activities of the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) in Nizamabad district. Since its inception in 2002, the party has been losing its sheen gradually. TRS founder members and senior leaders are leaving the party and joining other political parties. It may be noted that leaders and activists of Nizamabad had extended strong support to the TRS in the initial days.
TRS chief K. Chandrasekhar Rao was unable to show his party’s strength in his native Medak district in the 2002 local body elections, but people of Nizamabad voted for the TRS and gave a chance for the Zilla Parishad chairman’s post and 23 out of 36 mandal parishad presidents’ posts. TRS leaders S. Santosh Reddy, G. Sadanandam and G. Anita served as zilla parishad chairpersons for two terms. Former TRS MLAs S. Santosh Reddy of Armoor and G. Ganga Reddy of Dichpally resigned from the party and joined the ruling Congress.
The party’s single MLA E. Ravinder Reddy of Yellareddy Assembly constituency has also faced discomfort with the party high command several times. Party former ZP chairman G. Sadanandam has also joined the Congress. Former MP and founder member of the TRS M. Narayana Reddy and TRS senior leader Dr J. Bapu Reddy have left the party, while TRS district unit president A.S. Poshetty and senior leader Dr R. Bhupathi Reddy rejoined the party. (మరింత…)

The vote and beyond
Quite understandably, the Telangana Rashtra Samiti is portraying the results of the 12 Assembly by-elections in Andhra Pradesh as a referendum in favour of a separate Telangana State. The party won all the 11 seats it contested; the twelfth went to the Bharatiya Janata Party with which it had an understanding. After all, the by-elections were a direct fall-out of the Telangana issue with the sitting MLAs — 10 belonging to the TRS, one to the BJP and another to the Telugu Desam Party— resigning in protest at what they saw as a delay on the part of the Centre in carving out a new State. Statehood was indeed the dominant issue right through the campaign, and the TRS won all its seats with huge margins, a marked improvement over its performance in the general elections just a year ago. Its chief, K. Chandrashekhar Rao, who spearheaded the Statehood agitation by undertaking an indefinite fast last year, must be feeling vindicated. Both the Congress and the TDP, which have been equivocal on the Statehood issue, received a drubbing. Indeed, in a high stakes contest for the Congress, the party’s State president, D. Srinivas, lost to the BJP candidate in the Nizamabad Urban constituency. The TDP, apart from conceding one seat to the TRS, lost its deposit in several constituencies, finishing a poor third. A pro-Statehood sentiment was clearly in evidence in all the constituencies that went to polls. (మరింత…)
