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…)

End of dilemma for Telangana JAC?

Rama Melkote, The Hans India, 4 June 2012

The decision of the TJAC to support the TRS candidate in Parkal Assembly constituency augurs well both for the TRS and the TJAC. Yet, it is rather strange that the TJAC needed a survey by academicians and students of Osmania University for “finding the pulse the Parkal public”.

The co-convener of the TJAC said that some 600-odd voters in different polling booths were posed questions after which the final survey report was prepared, assessing the strength of the two pro-Telangana parties, the TRS and the BJP.

The Chairman of TJAC said that this decision was not taken to please any one party. “Not backing either of the two pro-Telangana parties might lead to splitting of votes, eventually benefitting the Seemandhra parties….Therefore, the TJAC is left with no option but to change its neutral stand.”

This is a lesson learnt, somewhat belatedly, from the experience of Mahboobnagar election where the TJAC’s stand has led to the defeat of the one and only minority candidate.

The question is: Should the TJAC give primacy to electoral calculations at the cost of ideological issues? While one can understand the compulsions of a complex grouping of different individuals and parties of divergent political persuasions, whatever stand it takes cannot be at the cost of people’s vision of the future Telangana State.
