It’s neck and neck for YSR Congress, TRS

TNN | Jun 13, 2012

PARKAL: The Konda couple are confident while the Telangana protagonists are no less optimistic of winning the seat with the massive turnout of the electorate in the bypolls on Tuesday. Nearly 84% of the total 1,87,222 voters in Parkal, Atmakur, Geesukonda and Sangem mandals of the Parkal constituency exercised their franchise.

While both TRS and YSR CP candidates are confident of winning the seat with a comfortable majority, analysts said it would be a tight finish between YSR CP’s Konda Surekha and TRS’ Moluguri Bikshapati. While Surekha is banking on her good work in the constituency, the TRS nominee is hoping that the strong Telangana sentiment would see him emerge victorious. In the 2009 elections, Surekha won against Bikshapati on Congress ticket. (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…)

Vijayamma makes successful foray into Telangana
Ravi Reddy, The Hindu, HYDERABAD, June 9, 2012

Public meetings of KCR in Parkal and Sushma Swaraj at Hanamkonda will be watched keenly against this backdrop

The successful foray by YSR Congress honorary president Y.S. Vijayamma into Telangana on Friday has turned to be a game changer in the by-elections to the Parkal Assembly.

The large crowds she drew at Geesukonda, a mandal headquarters, in the afternoon and in Parkal in the night have made the main contenders for the seat, the Telangana Rashtra Samithi and the BJP sit up and take note.

The public meetings proposed to be addressed on Saturday by TRS president K. Chandrasekhar Rao in Parkal and by BJP leader Sushma Swaraj at Hanamkonda will be watched keenly against this backdrop.

During their day-long campaign Ms. Vijayamma and her daughter Sharmila held forth on how they were being targeted by the ruling party while Congress leaders and TDP president N. Chandrababu Naidu got away after the CBI filed similar charges against them.

Ms. Sharmila avoided any reference to Telangana but Ms. Vijayamma was goaded by the crowd to express her views. She recalled late YSR’s statement that Telangana will come when it has to, but the region has to be developed on all fronts in the meantime. At Parkal road show, she elaborated further stating that when YSR was the CLP leader, 41 Congress MLAs led by G.Chinna Reddy had met the AICC president Sonia Gandhi demanding a decision on Telangana. She also said that during the YSR Congress plenary, Mr. Jaganmohan Reddy said it was the Centre, which had to take a decision. “If the Centre decides, it will not take more than a minute to announce separate Telangana,” she said.
