Its predictions going wrong, TRS decides to revive stir

Express News Service, Hyderabad, 28 August 2012

The TRS leadership, which has been claiming that it has received signals of a favourable decision on the separate Telangana issue from the Centre and an announcement will be made in just a couple of months, has now come to the opinion that the Congress led UPA government at the Centre might defer a decision till the 2014 general election.

Though Telangana leaders of the Congress are time and again saying that their high command will take a final call on the issue soon, the TRS leadership has come to think otherwise.

After closely watching the developments in Delhi, the pink party leadership has formed an opinion that the UPA government is not in a position to deliver on its promise.

According to the TRS leadership, if the Centre wants to make any announcement on Telangana, it will do so only just before the 2014 elections. (మరింత…)

Massive agitation in sight as congress plans autonomous regional council for Telangana
A Srinivasa Rao, Mail Today, Hyderabad, August 19, 2012

The Congress high command is mulling over the proposal of constituting an autonomous Telangana Regional Council a solution to the contentious Telangana issue in Andhra Pradesh. Having realized that the indecisiveness in taking a decision on the Telangana demand has cost the party heavily in the state, the Congress leadership is understood to be working on the proposal for autonomous regional council for Telangana, on the lines of Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Council, which has recently transformed into Gorkhaland Territorial Administration with considerable autonomy for the local tribes.

An empowered Telangana regional council is part of the sixth option recommended by the Justice BN Srikrishna Committee in December 2010 as the best way forward on the Telangana issue. According to the committee, the regional council would be equipped with adequate funds, functions and functionaries. It would be headed by a legislator with cabinet rank and would provide a legislative consultative mechanism for subjects like planning and economic development, water and irrigation, education, skill development and vocational education, local administration and public health.

Autonomy for Telangana likely
HYDERABAD, Feb 29, 2012, DHNS:

Centre contemplates Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Council model to resolve AP crisis

The United Progressive Alliance (UPA government) is believed to have decided to set up an autonomous Telangana regional council as a permanent solution to the raging demand for statehood.

A special financial package of Rs 20,000 crore is also under the consideration of the Centre, according to Congress sources. Though there is no official confirmation from the government, but political circles in Andhra Pradesh are abuzz with reports that the Congress leadership is in favour of emulating the Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Council model to resolve the Telangana issue.

In fact, the Justice B N Srikrishna Commission, had recommended for the creation of a statutory Telangana regional council to address the core socio-economic concerns of the backward region even while maintaining the unity of Andhra Pradesh.

“This is the most workable option in the given circumstances and in the best interests of the social and economic welfare of people of all the three regions in the state,” a five-member panel said in its report in January last year. (మరింత…)
