Telangana will be a reality before 2014: TRS
Hyderabad: Telangana Rashtra Samiti leader and Sircilla legislator KT Rama Rao has expressed hope that Telangana will become a reality before the 2014 general election.
“I do not want to approach elections with Telangana as the agenda,” he told a gathering of public prosecutors here on Sunday.
He said it was unfortunate that a raw deal was being meted out to the Telangana region in all aspects (మరింత…)

Telangana Rashtra Samiti will merge with no party: K Chandrasekhar Rao
TNN | Apr 28, 2012
HYDERABAD: Hinting at another round of intensified struggle in June this year, Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) chief K Chandrasekhar Rao has said that he would keep taking the pro-Telangana activism a notch higher until the Centre acceded to the legitimate and democratic demand for a separate state, even if it meant carrying on with the political struggle for another 11 years.
Speaking at the 11th party foundation day celebrations, near Vikarabad on Friday, KCR demanded that the Centre honour the promise it has made to the people of the region. “If the Centre has any respect towards democracy, it should immediately announce the formation of Telangana state. We demand that the Prime Minister immediately introduce a bill in support of a separate Telangana,” he said.
Asking media to desist from making baseless reports of TRS’s merger with Congress, Rao said his party had become strong enough for other political parties in the region to merge with TRS. “We are not in a position to merge our party. We have grown to Himalayan heights. People have made the party so strong that other parties are finding it tough to retain their identity. The party will exist even after the formation of Telangana state,” he said.
The TRS chief called upon people to continue their struggle in a peaceful manner. “We have to achieve Telangana in a peaceful and democratic way. No one can stop us. We will continue our fight until we achieve our goal. People must realise that reconstructing a new vibrant Telangana state is as important as achieving it. Our aim must be to strive for a Telangana full of smiles,” he observed. (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…)

Rosaiah asks police to act tough
Special Correspondent, The Hindu, December 7, 2009
HYDERABAD: Chief Minister K. Rosaiah has instructed the police personnel to act tough against those indulging in damage of public and private properties in the name of agitations.
The Chief Minister wanted the police not to remain mute spectators to incidents involving destruction of property in the name of “maintaining restraint”. “The police personnel need not wait for special instructions when it comes to protecting public and private properties,” he said.
Though the government was doing everything to control the violence, “something went wrong yesterday in the State capital” resulting in apprehensions among investors, particularly in the IT and IT-enabled services, over their investments in the city. The industry was already hit by the global meltdown and the latest incidents of causing damage to properties had accentuated their fears, he said.
Mr. Rosaiah sought to allay apprehensions in investors by reassuring them of the government’s determination to act sternly on perpetrators of such incidents.
