Politics of suicide: Kavita Vs Yaski


Telangana Congress, which has launched an all-round attack on TRS on the issue of growing number of suicides in state, on Monday fielded AICC spokesperson and former Nizambad MP Madhu Yaski Goud against Kavita, Nizambad MP. Kavita, participating in a round table on Sunday, sought to lay all the blame for suicides at the doors Congress, which ruled the state during 2004-14. TRS leaders, caught unawares by suicides, have been consistently blaming the Congress for the suicides. The Pink party is worried that high death toll has the potential to undo the all other developmental work the KCR government is planning. Hence the Congress bashing by Kavita.

So, to counter Kavata’s accusation, Congress fielded Yaski, who represented the Nizambad Lok Sabha constituency between 2004 and 2014. Yaski launched a frontal attack on Kavita by dubbing all the suicides by farmers were the murders by the state government led by her father. The fifteen-month old TRS government belied the hopes of farmers that Telangana state would put an end to the miseries and herald a new phase of decent life, Yaski said in Hyderabad.

“KCR’s very presence in their own Medak district has failed to reassure the farmers. That fact that the highest number of suicides are reported from the backyard of chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao tells what type of governance the people inherited in the state,” he said. He wondered as to why neither the CM, nor ministers Harish Rao or Ramaraor nor his daughter Kavita thought of visiting the families of the farmers to console them and reassure them about the government support. In fact, Yaski said, the KCR clan is angry on farmers that they were bringing disrepute to the state.

He ridiculed Kavata’s round table stating that, “you allow the farmers commit suicide on one side, and sitting in Hyderabad you announce that you would adopt their villages. What type of drama is it?”

Yaski asked Kavita, the leader of Telangana Jagruti, to reveal the sources of income of her organization.”How do you adopt the villages on behalf of Telangana Jagruti? You owe an explanation to the people about the sources of income and they way the money has so far been spent,” Yaski asked.

Kavita raises absence of Telangana in GoI tourism scheme


Nizambad MP Kavita took up the right cause. Telangana is being given little attention by the centre in many respects, especially in the development of tourism. None of the state’s centres with tourism potential figured in the list of tourism centres the union government planning to develop. Recently union government has launched PRASAD (Pilgrimage Rejuvenation and Spiritual Augmentation Drive ).Under this program 12 cities -Amritsar, Ajmer, Dwaraka, Mathura, Varanasi, Gaya, Puri, Amaravati, Kanchipuram, Vellankanni, Kedarnath and Guwahati- cities have been identified for development. None of the Telangana cities- such as Basara, Bhadrachalam or Yadagiri Gutta, Kaleswaram etc figured in the list.

The union tourism ministry has sanctioned Rs 131 lakh for the development of four rural tourism sites. The states in which these sites are Arunachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Maharashtra, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Uttarakhand, Punjab and Tripura. Apart from that, it has launched a new scheme called Swadesh Darshan for integrated development of tourist circuits around specific themes. Telangana is conspicuous by absence in these plans.

So, Nizambad MP met union tourism minister Mahesh Sharma to get Bhadrachalam included in the proposed Ramayana circuit. Unless pressure is mounted Bhadrachalam is unlikely to draw attention of BJP led NDA government. Because, though BJP sought votes reciting Rama and Ram temple, it never looked southwards to promote Bhadrachalam during previous NDA regimes. No BJP national Ram Bhakt had ever thought of visiting the Rama of Bhadradri. She also sought to generous funds for the development of country’s only Saraswati temple.

But, we want to remind the Kavita, knows for tenacity, that there is another aspect of tourism which many tend to forget: the Jain culture. Apart from Ramayana circuits, the center is planning to develop three spiritual circuits across the country namely Buddhist Circuit, Jain Circuit and Sufi Circuit.
Kavita and state government should work to get Jain sites included in the proposed Jain spiritual circuit. Telangana has got many Jain sites which are reeling under negligence. Kolanupaka Jain Mandir is one such site to be developed by the centre. Kolanupaka flourished during Rashtrakuta period in 11th century A.D. as a major Jain centre. Bringing this under Jain circuit raises the Telangana profile in the tourism sector.

Modiji, Pl respect cooperative-federalism: Kavita


Nizambad MP and daughter of Telangana chief minister Kavita charged that Prime Minister Modi was not following the spirit of cooperative federalism. Criticizing that the Rs 1.65 lakh crore special package PM Modi announced for Bihar, which is going to polls soon, Kavita demanded Modi that he should treat all the states equally.

“Today in the country, we know that there is a lot of instability and discussion happening more on cooperative federalism, which Modiji has often spoken about. We are very sorry to say that he has not honored his words and he has not kept his promises. Cooperative federalism does not mean that you will only view states, which are going to elections. He (PM) has to have an equal view on all the states,” Kavita said in a statement.

According to Kavita the Bihar special package has not gone well with many states. “Look at all states in an equitable manner. Giving away Rs 1.25 lakh crore for Bihar, certainly has not gone (down) well with many states. We can only request the Prime Minister to ensure, that he looks upon all the states equally, she said advising a joint fight by Telugu states for the what is due to them. Otherwise, she cautioned, their voice would get lost in the vast nation.Despite their differences, she said,” If something has to be demanded from the Centre, I certainly believe that two people, people of two states, have to come together both politically and also people wise and then fight for our cause. Otherwise, in a country so huge, we cannot be heard.”

Kavita targets AP CM in Lok Sabha


TRS Nizambad MPs Kavita on Wednesday directly attacked AP CM Chandrababu Naidu in Lok Sabha for the delay in the bifurcation of Hyderabad High Court. Dragging chief minister of a state  into a controversy and leveling charges against him is generally not the practice of House. However, Kavitha made a scathing attack on Naidu during  Zero hour in Lok Sabha sparking protest from Government.

Breaking the convention,  Kavita, not only referred to CM of Andhra Pradesh Chandrababu Naidu by name but also  accused  him of blocking the division of Hyderabad High Court, which was immediately objected to by urban development minister Venkaiah Naidu and law minister Sadananda Gowda.

For the past few day the TRS member have been agitating demanding immediate bifurcation of the High Court. Today also they raised the issue in Zero hour.  Participating in the reference, Kavata alleged that,” Andhra Pradesh chief minister Chandrababu Naidu is trying to rule Telangana through High Court.”

She said Naidu had always been the stumbling block for Telangana and now for the division of High Court. She also criticized centre for not cooperating in the creation of separate high court for Telangana state. Earlier, another TRS MP AP Jitender Reddy said T-government was ready to allot any premises to Andhra Pradesh to set up their own High Court in Hyderabad and they could stay put for ten years.

Speaker Sumitra Mahaja also disapproved of Kavita’s remark and advised her not level charges against chief minister of a state from the House.

Reacting to Kavita remark against Chandrababu Naidu, Venkaiah Naid took strong objection. He said taking reference to a person who was not a member of the House was not right. “Don’t talk like a child. You are not supposed to refer to somebody who is not a member of the House. If you don’t like I will ask law minister to withdraw his statement. Do whatever you like,” Naidu said angryly and sat down.

” In the bifurcation of the high court,  a political decision has been taken already. Implementation of decision is getting delayed due to practical problems involved,” he said.

Responding to the debate law minister Sadananda Gowda said center was committed to th  e bifurcation of the state. Protesting the remark of Kaviata, Gowda said, the matter was sub judice and could not dwell more on the subject.
