Government fields junior minister for Telangana debate
Hyderabad, August 18, 2012 IBN Live

The Union government signalled a lack of urgency on the Telangana issue by fielding a junior minister to reply to a Rajya Sabha debate on a private member’s bill on separate statehood for the region.
The bill, tabled by the BJP’s Prakash Javdekar, was defeated by a voice vote, and served only to pinpoint the various parties’ stance on smaller states.

Most notably, the Samajwadi Party, an important prop of the UPA at the Centre, strongly opposed smaller states, because it would limite the bargaining power of the larger entity from which they would be carved.

After several parties spoke on the issue, minister of state for home Jitendra Singh stood up to deliver a proforma reply that has been stated by numerous other functionaries of the government previously.
A suitable decision will be taken on Telangana issue after consultations with all political parties, he said. (మరింత…)

Political Empowerment of Telangana – Key Lesson from Encouraging Performance of Smaller States

C.H. Hanumantha Rao

1. Introduction

Achieving economic growth with social justice has always been the foremost objective of economic planning in India since independence. Although the achievements in this respect have been substantial, the growth achieved was much slower than planned and reduction of poverty was also slow. It was after the launching of economic reforms in the early 1990s that the growth rate of the economy accelerated, but the reduction of poverty became even slower with rising inequalities in income. In view of this, the plan strategy was reviewed and the Eleventh Five Year Plan aimed at achieving faster and inclusive growth. In the last few years, however, issues like the degradation of environment and large-scale displacement of people and destruction of their livelihoods, especially in tribal areas, on account of indiscriminate mining and certain other projects have come into sharp focus. Responding to these growing concerns, the Government of India has recently come out with the three-fold strategy of faster, inclusive and sustainable development during the Twelfth Five Year Plan.

Time for Telangana
ET Bureau, Jun 1, 201

It is time for the Congress to take the plunge and carve the state of Telangana out of Andhra Pradesh. There are many reasons to do so, not least the fact that historically, state boundaries get drawn and redrawn many times. When it became a republic, India was composed of 14 states. Now, at 28, it has double the number. Many states like Andhra Pradesh itself, were carved out of bigger entities after linguistic or ethnic movements. (మరింత…)
