TDP-BJP has the edge, but all Telugu parties will need Delhi after polls
R Jagannathan, Firstpost, April 7, 2014

Will Andhra Pradesh play a crucial role in the next Lok Sabha, as it did in 2004 and 2009? In 2004, the Congress victory in undivided Andhra brought it to power in Delhi. In 2009, when it repeated this feat, it consolidated its power. Andhra Pradesh contributed the largest chunk to the Congress.

This time, the Congress has had to divide the state in order to win at least a few seats in Telangana, but the game is now wide open, thanks to the BJP-Telugu Desam tieup. (మరింత…)

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…)
