Mothkupalli, Bhatti’s seating in Pragathi Bhavan raises eyebrows!


Telangana Chief Minister K.Chandrashekar Rao held a preparatory meeting on Dalit Bandhu scheme at Pragathi Bhavan on Monday (today).

The purpose of the meeting is to extend Dalit Bandhu scheme to five more Assembly constituencies (one mandal in each constituency) in addition to the already existing Huzurabad Assembly constituency and Vasalamarri village in Bhongir district, where Dalit Bandhu is being implemented as a pilot programme.

Five SC Assembly constituencies were identified of which one is Madhira represented by CLP leader Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka while the rest four constituencies are represented by TRS MLAs.

KCR invited MLAs and ministers from these five districts under which these five Assembly constituencies fall to Pragathi Bhavan today for the meeting.

He offered seats next to him on either side to Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka and Mothukupalli Narasimhulu against the normal convention of seats allotted to ministers besides CM.

While Mallu is MLA but no one knows under what capacity Mothukupalli attended this meet. He is neither MLA nor in TRS. He recently quit BJP and but did not join TRS so far except giving statements praising KCR every day for Dalit Bandhu scheme.

But the prominence given to Mallu and Mothukupalli in the meeting over TRS ministers and MLAs has raised many eyebrows.

Bhatti confident of staging a come back in GHMC


Following series of setbacks, the Congress in Telangana is bracing itself  for the final and decisive battle in this term to prove it’s relevance in the new state of Telangana. The election to  Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation(GHMC), slated in January, is a real test for the leadership’s ability to steer the party to recovery in future.

En masse migrations of MLAs, MLCs, humiliating defeat in Warangal by-election,  lack of candidates to field in the ongoing MLC elections and many more important leaders reportedly sitting on the fence -all hit the morale of the party workers in Telangana.  The port of last call for the party is GHMC.  A defeat in the GHMC polls will prove fatal for the survival of the party in future.

T-Congress has drawn an elaborate two-pronged plan to arrest the rout of the party in state capital. The plan, now being implemented, according TPCC working president Mallu Bhatti Vikramarkha, will serve  the twin purpose of keeping a watch on the abuse of authority by the ruling TRS in GHMC elections,  taking the failures of TRS government  to every door step in the GHMC area and tell people on the need to vote in favor of Congress.

Congress is appointing an army of 6000 leaders for the purpose. ” We are appointing 150 division committees, each committee with 40 members. Each member of division committee is made in charge of a polling station in every assembly segment. In turn the division committee member will appoint a booth committee for the area that falls under his polling station. We have about 1000 voters per polling station. At this rate each booth committee member will   be given responsibility of 100 voters, which roughly works out to 25 families. The member regularly visits the  25 families with party workers  and tell them about Congress and its contribution to the development of Hyderabad. His team will also  explain how TRS has backed out on the poll promises after coming power, along with corruption in the government, family rule in state etc,” Bhatti told ‘telugu360.com’.

He said, the Congress had already appointed division committees in Qutbullapur, Sherilingampally and  LB Nagar  and on Sunday  committees for  Kukatpalli and Uppla would be appointed. After completion of this process, he said, the party was planning padayatras by senior leaders in all Assembly segments on December 18. On December 21, election offices would be set up in all divisions, followed by the release of Congress GHMC election pamphlet.

To coordinate between the divisional committee and booth committee, the party is  appointing  a senior party leader from other districts will be appointed as observer. Bhatti said  migrations from Congress  had  not affected the party structure at the grass root level. ” All opposition parties pass through such a phase of migrations to ruling party. It’s natural. The process will be reversed once Congress comes to power. The issue of some leaders leaving the party is not at all a problem as it is being made out to be in media. Congress is going to stage a comeback in GHMC,” Bhatti exuded confidence.

Threat to YSR Legacy in TS: Jagan’s Intriguing Silence


In Telangana, politics always makes strange bedfellows. The enemies forget their past and embrace, and the very next moment brandish the swords to cut throats. This is how politics flourished in the region and going to flourish in future as well. Otherwise, YSR Congress can’t be expected of maintaining deafening silence even though chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao is destroying  the traces of YS Rajasekhar Reddy from the soil of Telangana.

A leader, who never fails to refer to the name of Maha Neta (this is how YS Jaganmohan Reddy addresses his father) has been silent in Telangana on the annihilation of YSR’s projects. Why is it that Jaganmohan Reddy, who wants to build his political empire on the legacy of his father, is winking at the acts of destruction of YSR legacy? Is it just because, he wants to take help of chief minister Chandrasekhar Rao, in weakening TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu. His silence lends credence to the talk that Jagan is in league with KCR.

As Jagan is silent, Congress is owning up YS Rajasekhar Reddy in the new state to derive political advantage.

1. Neither Jagan nor his sister Sharmila in her tour in Telangana last month asked if there was need to abandon the Pranahita-Chevella project,  which was the dream-project of YS Rajasekhar Reddy. YRS laid foundation for the project in 2008 and works have been taken up spending thousands of crores of taxpayers money.

It is the Congress which alleged that KCR was obliterating the YSR legacy.  They charged that  KCR had abandoned the project just because it had been initiated by Rajasekhar Reddy.

2. Entire Mahabubnagar district is up against KCR government for setting aside four irrigation projects, Nettempadu, Kalwakurthi, Koilsagar and Bhima in favor of a new project Palamuru-Raga Reddy lift irrigaton project. Congress sounded war bugle against ignoring the project which are in the final stages of completion. According to G Chinna Reddy (MLA Vanaparthi), DK Aruna (MLA, Gadwala), Bhatti Vikramaraka (TPCC working president) a meager allocation of Rs 500 cr – Rs 600 cr was enough to complete these projects.

“If completed, these projects would helpirrigate 8 lakh acres in the district,” Bhatti told Telugu360.com. A meeting of Congress leaders held  two days ago at DK Aruna’s residence had decided that Congress leaders visit these projects on July 24 and July 25 to study their status and place facts before the people, Bhatti said.

However, from the YSR Congress side, except the lone MP Ponguleti Srinivas Reddy(Khammam), no other leader reacted against  the abandonment of Pranahita-Chevella project in Telangana which people of Adilabad fear would deny water to their district. While the party president Jagan is not keen to  rub KCR on wrong side, as a party, YSRC also failed to take a view on the KCR’s decision. Jagan made a feeble voice only once against the taking up of Palamuru-Ranga Reddy Lift Irrigation Project some time back with out referring the four project ignored by TRS government.

Jagan’s inaction on the projects is being attributed to  the purported political understanding he has with KCR. Since Jagan sees little future for his party in Telangana, he seems to have settled for an undeclared alliance with KCR, who is hell bent on driving  away Naidu from Hyderabad.

Strangeness of these political games is that KCR and Naidu were friends in  2009 elections and the fell apart after the drubbing at elections. KCR hated YSR to the bone. As long as YSR was in power, KCR did not dare talk Telangana. Later , Jagan openly opposed Telangana. Now, KCR and Jagan  are not enemies, if not friends.
