Parkal result a wake up call for Telangana Rashtra Samithi
Arun Kumar Govindraj, TNN, June 16, 2012

HYDERABAD: The close finish in Parkal between K Chandrasekhar Rao’s Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and Jaganmohan Reddy’s YSR Congress has thrown up serious questions about the strength of the ongoing separate Telangana movement with the TRS itself admitting that it needs to regroup and introspect.

TRS ought to be worried by the slender majority of 1,562 votes by which its candidate Moluguri Bikshapati won as Parkal lies in the heart of Telangana statehood movement — Warangal. TRS earlier had boasted that it would win by a majority of 35,000-40,000 votes. But evidently, the voter was equally divided between the pro-Telangana protagonist and a party which espouses the united Andhra cause.

In fact, the fight turned out to be a bit like a T-20 cricket match with leads swinging back and forth between the TRS and YSR CP. Bhikhapati, who was leading comfortably with 5,999-vote lead till the 12th round, slipped to a slender majority of 283 votes in the 17th round. At one point, YSR CP’s Konda Surekha led by 16 votes. The TRS candidate gained in the last 19th round and snatched victory. But where did the TRS calculations go wrong? The Friday’s result is not only a wake up call for the party but raises questions on the effectiveness of the movement. (మరింత…)

Telangana will emerge from post-poll crisis: KCR
Express News Service, 30 May 2012

HYDERABAD: Telangana Rashtra Samiti chief K Chandrasekhara Rao expects a political crisis of unprecedented dimensions after the byelections on June 12 for one Lok Sabha and 18 Assembly seats in the state, forcing the Congress to accede to the demand for bifurcation of the state.

The Centre is unable to take a decision though the entire ground work has already been done for it to formulate its opinion. AICC general secretary and Union minister Ghulam Nabhi Azad has already submitted his report to the core committee. Recently, AICC observer and Union minister Vayalar Ravi tot submitted his report to the party high command. (మరింత…)
