Sushma reigns despite rain
June 10, 2012 | By DC Correspondent | Warangal

The much-anticipated showdown between TRS chief K. Chandrasekhar Rao and BJP leader Sushma Swaraj turned out to be a damp squib due to sudden showers that forced both the leaders to cut short their speeches at their respective public meetings in Warangal on Saturday.

Ms Swaraj attracted a large turnout despite the rain at BJP’s Telangana Poru Sabha at Hygreevachary Ground in Warangal city, while the TRS chief addressed a meeting at the Angadi centre.

The heavy downpour forced Ms Swaraj to wait in the car for an hour before she could finally make it to the dais at 8pm. The crowds waited patiently despite the rains and poor sound system.

Befitting the weather, she quoted appropriate lines from BJP patriarch Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s poem, Andhera Chhatega, Suraj Nikalega, Kamal Khilega (Darkness will fade, the sun will rise and the lotus will bloom).

In her half-hour speech, she avoided TRS bashing but chose to target the Congress for the impasse on Telangana.

“Telangana is a fight for identity of language, culture and the arts. It is not antagonistic to any region,” she said, while appealing to the Parkal people to do a repeat of Mahbubnagar by-poll. (మరింత…)

TRS releases advani’s 2002 anti-t letter
June 10,2012, By DC Correspondent, Warangal

With the Telangana Rashtra Samiti and the Bharatiya Janata Party pulling out all stops to corner the pro-Telangana vote in Parkal, both parties are doing their best to wrest the initiative on Telangana statehood.

Hours before leader of the opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj’s arrival to campaign for the BJP in Parkal, TRS leader Harish Rao on Saturday released a video clip of the BJP’s former minister Ch. Vidyasagar Rao and a letter written by former Union home minister L.K. Advani in 2002.

Releasing the video clip and the letter, Mr Harish Rao, the TRS’ strategy expert, alleged that the BJP was trying to reap the “Telangana crop harvest” that had been sown, watered and cared for by the TRS since 2001.

Mr Harish Rao distributed copies of Mr Advani’s letter, dated April 1, 2002 and addressed to the then BJP MP A. Narendra, saying that “regional disparities in economic development can be tackled through planning.” Mr Advani stated in his letter, “we do not propose the creation of a separate state of Telangana.” (మరింత…)

Telangana state top priority for NDA: Shahnawaz
The party is totally committed for Telangana state

Press Trust of India / Hyderabad Jun 10, 2012

Reiterating BJP’s commitment towards smaller states, former Union Minister and party’s official spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain today assured that NDA’s first decision after coming to power at the Centre would be creation of separate Telangana state.

“The party is totally committed for Telangana state and first decision of the NDA, if voted to power, would be carving out of Telangana region as a separate state,” Shahnawaz told reporters here, before leaving for Parkal Assembly constituency in Warangal district to participate in elections campaign.

Alleging that some political parties have been playing with the sentiments of Telangana people, Shahnawaz said they (people) have now identified the parties who have been deceiving them in the name of separate state and they have full faith in BJP. (మరింత…)

T-resolution moved in RS
May 5,2012 Deccan Chronicle, New Delhi

Strongly supporting the creation of a Telangana state, senior BJP leader Prakash Javadekar on Friday took on the Congress for “betraying” the people of the region by going back on its promise.

Moving a private member’s resolution for creation of a separate Telangana state, Mr Javadekar stated that both Telangana and Seemandhra regions could co-exist peacefully and prosper.

“We are providing a blank cheque. Let the government bring the resolution, we will pass it,” Mr Javadekar said while speaking on his resolution.

Mr Javadekar said even home minister P. Chidambaram, in December 2009, had said the process of formation of the state “has begun” but two-and-a- half-years had passed since then. (మరింత…)
