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…)

All-party meeting a political farce, says Telangana Rashtra Samithi
TNN, Dec 6, 2012

HYDERABAD: Terming the UPA government’s move to convene an all-party meeting on Telangana as a political farce, the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and BJP as well as the YSR Congress on Wednesday demanded the introduction of a bill on the formation of the separate state in Parliament.

“Anyone can understand that calling for an all-party meeting at this juncture is an ad hoc step taken by the Centre just to avert the crisis emerging ahead of the government facing voting in the Lok Sabha on the FDI issue. We demand that the government move a bill on Telangana in Parliament as there has been enough discussion on the issue. There is no necessity for an all-party meeting at this juncture,” said Etala Rajender, TRS floor leader in the assembly.

Expressing a similar view, the BJP said the UPA government must move the bill on Telangana in Parliament as calling an all-party meeting was a misleading and time – buying tactic. “If the Congress is earnest on Telangana, the Centre must move the bill in Parliament. When all the stakeholders including the political parties have already made clear their stand on Telangana, the BJP feels there is no necessity for an all-party meeting,” said G Kishan Reddy, state BJP president. CPI state secretary Narayana said his party would take part in the all-party meeting, but he urged the Congress to come clear on Telangana before the meeting. (మరింత…)

Will a separate Telangana facilitate merger of TRS and Congress?
A Srinivasa Rao, Mail Today, Hyderabad August 31, 2102

The Telangana Rashtra Samithi, which is spearheading the movement for carving out separate Telangana state by bifurcating Andhra Pradesh, is willing to be merged with the Congress party if there is a positive announcement from the Centre on the Telangana state formation.

According to TRS sources, party president K Chandrasekhara Rao has sent fresh feelers to the Congress bosses in New Delhi to this effect. He told them that he did not mind merging the TRS with the Congress if the Centre commenced the process for Telangana state formation. He insisted that the UPA government must announce a specific time-frame for carving out a new state. (మరింత…)

Telangana will be a reality before 2014: TRS

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…)

Congress has been exposed: TRS
Hyderabad, August 18, 2012 Deccan Chronicle

The Telangana Rashtra Samiti on Friday alleged that discussions on Telangana in the Rajya Sabha exposed the anti-T stance of the UPA government and the Congress.

“When such an important and burning issue came up for discussion, the absence of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Union home minister Sushilkumar Shinde give credence to this,” said TRS leader T. Harish Rao. The PM was absent when the BJP-backed private members bill on Telangana came up for discussion.

“The Congress will be buried in Telangana. If it was committed to Telangana, the party would have said it in the Rajya Sabha. It is now clear the Congress doesn’t want to give Telangana,” he said. (మరింత…)

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…)

Second SRC not applicable to Telangana, Says DS
Express News Service, The New Indian Express May 26, 2011

HYDERABAD: APCC president D Srinivas has asserted that the second SRC would not be applicable to Telangana since the UPA government had made a statement in December 2009 only after thoroughly studying the issue. “How will the second SRC come into picture even after Union home minister P Chidambaram had made a statement on Telangana issue?” he argued.
