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…)

Deccan Chronicle, C.R.Gowri Shanker, December 18, 2014
Hyderabad: The TRS government is being given a hard time by its ally MIM over its regularisation scheme.
The government’s much touted land regularisation plan in Hyderabad and Ranga Reddy district has hit a roadblock with the MIM questioning the rationale in trying to rake up thousands of crores through regularisation of small plots and lands while promising huge tracts of lands for various “cities” for a song.
Sources told this newspaper that Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao is quite upset with the MIM’s objections and is trying to sort out the issue with the party’s leadership.
Stating that it will not support any “hasty action on regularisation till the reports of the JLC (Joint Legislature Committees) and Task Force are received,” MIM has asked the government to provide details of all government, ceiling surplus, Bhoodan and assigned lands in both Hyderabad and Ranga Reddy district, its occupants and alternate regularisation proposals.

Jagan Mohan Reddy is worth Rs 16,97,335 crore: TDP
Sreenivas Janyala, The Indian Express, Hyderabad, June 09 2012
The CBI is likely to take cognisance of a file prepared by the ruling Congress government that reportedly puts assets of Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy far in excess of what has been reported.
The file was prepared after six ministers who also served in the YSR Cabinet came under CBI scrutiny for alleged role in alloting land and mining leases and granting favours to companies preferred by Jagan.
The file has found its way into offices of opposition parties, including the TDP, and the latter claims that the case made out by the CBI in its three charge-sheets so far against Jagan and his aides is just the tip of the iceberg.
According to the TDP, the YSR Congress chief owns 94,038 acres of land, valued at Rs 33,935 crore, and possesses mining leases for over 1,81,079 acres of land with a total turnover of Rs 16,63,400 crore.
Some claims in the file
Jagan is the actual owner of 822 acres of limestone mines allotted to Penna Cements. The reported turnover: Rs 3,600 crore.
Jagan owns 250 acres worth Rs 500 crore in the name of Tanla Solutions in Ranga Reddy district.
Owns 750 acres in Indu, Stargage, Brahmani SEZ worth Rs 1,500 crore; and 595 acres in Nadargul in Ranga Reddy district worth Rs 1,800 crore.
Owns 800 acres of limestone mines in Kurnool through Penna Cements worth Rs 3,000 crore.
About 329 acres of land allotted to OMC and Anantapur Mining Company owned by Gali Janardhana Reddy are owned by Jagan and the land is valued at Rs 10,000 crore.
Industrialist Indu Syam Prasad Reddy, an associate of Jagan, was allotted 8,844 acres to set up the Lepakshi Knowledge Hub at Anantapur and the land is valued at Rs 1,000 crore. (మరింత…)

Nagam’s meet moots new JAC to fight polls
VV Balakrishna, Express News Service, 10 May 2011
NAGARKURNOOL: In what is being perceived as an attempt to dare his leader N Chandrababu Naidu and TRS chief K Chandrasekhara Rao, TDP Telangana leader Nagam Janardhan Reddy on Monday said the legislators regardless of the party they belong to should come out in support of Telangana or people would dump them in history’s dust-bin.
Janardhan Reddy organised a massive public meeting at the headquarters of his home Nagarkurnool constituency without the Telugu Desam flags.
Kalawakurthy MLA Jaipal Yadav, an ardent supporter of Janardhan Reddy, brought out a proposal for formation of a Joint Action Committee to contest all the 119 assembly seats in Telangana region in the 2014 elections, indicating the possibility of a new political formation parallel to the TDP and the TRS.

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…)

State of suicide: 42 die every day
April 4, 2011, DC Correspondent, Hyderabad
April 3: Every day, 42 people commit suicide in the state. This shocking statistic appears in the latest report of the State Crime Records Bureau. In the year 2010, more than 15,529 persons ended their lives in AP. An alarming figure, which was 1,702 higher than that in the previous year. Telangana districts Adilabad, Karimnagar, Warangal, Ranga Reddy and Mahbubnagar reported the highest number of suicides.
Till February 2011, at least 2,635 suicides had taken place in the state. The SCRB officials reported that the number of men who ended their lives was double that of women. Around 4,827 women committed suicide in a year, as against 10,672 men. Suicides of farmers, weavers, Gulf returnees, Telangana agitators, accounted for a large number, besides the “regulars”, like domestic disputes, financial troubles and love affairs, said to be the key reasons for suicides.

More Satyams in a new Telengana?
Swaminathan S Anklesaria Aiyar, 10 Mar 2010, The Economic Times
Carving small states (Jharkhand , Chattisgarh and Uttrakhand ) out of larger ones (Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh ) has so far proved an economic success . Not only have the new states grown faster economically, even Bihar and Uttar Pradesh have experienced much faster growth after the separation, though not Madhya Pradesh. This appears to strengthen the case for creating more small states such as Telengana.
Yet a short visit I made to Andhra Pradesh showed dramatically that a separate Telengana could result in problems that other newly-created states have not experienced. The biggest is a problem of land ownership, and this could conceivably create new Satyams. In Hyderabad, some, though by no means all, businessmen talk with trepidation. The fears are highest among the Andhras, folk from the coastal districts, who fear they will be adversely affected and maybe even forced to flee by the local folk or mulkis.
One such businessman told me, “My driver, a local mulki, said to me, quite gently, that when I left Hyderabad after the separation of Telengana, could I please gift my car to him?” Another businessman trumped this with a better story. “My domestic servants”, he said, “requested me to hand over my house to them as and when I leave!” (మరింత…)

SC order on capital gives TRS fresh life
A Srinivasa Rao
India Today, October 28, 2009
Is Hyderabad not a part of Telangana, but a separate entity by virtue of being the capital of Andhra Pradesh? This issue is now the most hotly debated topic across the state. And it has given a new lease of life to the Telangana movement, which had almost been buried after the debacle of pro- Telangana forces in the recent general elections.
The whole controversy began with a Supreme Court judgement on October 9, declaring that Hyderabad was not a part of Telangana but a free zone insofar as recruitments and postings in government went.
Therefore, the Supreme Court ruled, people from all parts of the state would have equal rights in jobs, postings and promotions there. It meant the people of Telangana, who have been enjoying local area status in Hyderabad with 70 per cent quota in government jobs all these years, would have to forego the benefit and now have to compete with people from coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema for such openings.
Hitherto, the state government had been treating Hyderabad as part of Zone VI, along with Ranga Reddy, Mahbubnagar, Nalgonda, Nizamabad and Medak districts for the purpose of government recruitments, postings and promotions. There are five other zones in the rest of the state.
The Zonal system was created as part of Presidential Orders issued in 1975, based on the six point formula worked out by the then Indira Gandhi government to undo the injustice caused to Telangana in recruitments, as a fallout of the historic Telangana movement of 1969- 72. But, the formula was violated more often than not, causing a lot of unrest among the Telangana employees. (మరింత…)
