Centre rocks TS and AP’s boat


GoI tells to Supreme Court that there is no need to review the present arrangement of sharing of River Krishna waters among Maharashtra, Karnataka, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

Hyderabad: The Stand taken by the Government of India on review of sharing river Krishna water turned out to be a big blow to Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.
The Telangana State had knocked the doors of the Supreme Court seeking review of the water sharing award among Maharasthra, Karnataka and erstwhile united Andhra Pradesh. The plea of Telangana was that the sharing of Krishna waters caused grave injustice to it, and asked the apex court to direct for reopening of the award and make fresh allocations among the four states falling under Krishna basin.

River waters are one of the major issues forming the demand for the bifurcation for a separate state of Telangana. Post bifurcation, even Andhra Pradesh too had joined the Telangana, favoring for reallocation of Krishna waters among four states.

Following the plea of the Telangana the Supreme Court has sought the opinion of the Centre on the demand of Telangana. After taking much time, on Tuesday, in his oral submission, the Counsel (Additional Solicitor-General) representing the Centre, Tushar Mehta, in the Krishna Waters Dispute case said that the Centre does not feel that there is a need to relook into the issue. And, the two Telugu states would do well to share the united Andhra Pradesh’s quota between them, without disturbing the existing arrangement.
Counsel for Telangana Government Vaidyanathan, while reacting to the stand taken by the Centre said that the submission was not made in writing. Hence, he was in no position to react and he will react after going through the contents of the submissions made by the Centre.

TS Advisory to Kerala and Karnataka CMs


Hyderabad: The Telangana government has scuttled the efforts of the organizers of the controversial ‘Beef Festival‘, announced to take place in Osmania University, Hyderabad on December 10.

The state government has not rested by denying police permission to the organizers to hold the festival, but it has also prevailed upon the university to refuse its permission to the festival.

However, it sensed that some of the Congress and Left Wing Parties have been making hectic efforts to to rope in Kerala Chief Minister Ooman Chandy, and Karnataka Chief Minister Siddha Ramaiah to attend the festival to make it a big event, to catch the attention of the entire country.

The proposed festival has already raked up controversy and those opposing to hold a ‘Gau Puja’ and a ‘Pork Festival’, if the organizers goes ahead with their proposed move. Sensing that it would be a potential issue of political significance and could create a law and order problem, the TRS government has taken all the precautionary steps to prevent organizing the festival. In addition to these, the state government has also reportedly taken up the issue with Kerala and Karnataka government’s advising against Ooman Chandy and Siddharamaiah attending the festival, despite being invited by their own party men from the state. A senior police official pointed out, “Normally, it is a standard procedure in which chief ministers and governors visiting other states within the country would not ignore any advisory coming from that state. So, both the Kerala and Karnataka CM are unlikely to ignore the advisory of the Telangana government and attend the festival, “ he added.

Youth burn the effigy of KCR in Hyderabad


Hundreds of youth led by All India Youth Federation (AIYF) burnt the effigy of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao at Babu Jagjeevan Ram’s statue, opposite Nizam College, today demanding filling up all vacancies in the government departments.

Telanana youth are a worried lot. Because, the state government is tardy in issuing notifications for the recruitment. KCR promised a job for each family in the separate state. But, with projects like Kakatiya Mission and Water Grid project cornering more funds, the state wants to delay the promised recruitment. The idea behind this is that once the proposed private investments pour in, there would be bumper crop of jobs for youth. So the government’s delay is planned. Only the jobs that are essential such as engineers and police constables are being filled up to pacify the youth.

Against this background on Tuesday, AIYF organized the KCR-effigy burning program.

AIYF State general secretary B Anjaneyulu said KCR, who had assured one job to every household, has miserably failed to release job notifications even though the State government completed 18 months. It was not proper on the part of KCR to initiate steps to fill only police jobs, he said.

“There are about 2000 vacant posts in Group-I category and 6000 posts in Group-II category, 12,000 posts in Group-IV and 10,961 teacher posts in schools across the state. Government should issue notification to fill all these vacancies.,” he said. Anjaneyulu said youth of Telangana, who fought without caring for their education were a disillusioned lot.

” About 20 lakh students have completed their education and waiting for employment opportunities. Hoping that Telangana state would start recruitment, they have spent thousands of rupees for coaching and have been staying in Hyderabad at exorbitant living expenditure. Their families also spending anxious moments about the future of their children,” he said.

He warned that AIYF will launch a movement with unemployed youth if the government failed to fill vacant posts immediately across the state.

T-Cong seeks probe into Singareni job scam


The Telangana Congress today demanded a CBCID probe into the Singareni Collieries Company Limited (SCCL) job-recruitment ‘irregularities’. Party official spokesperson Mr. Konagala Mahesh presented a memorandum to the Power Minister Mr. Jagadeeswa Reddy with the documentary evidence. Mahesh met the Minister at the Secretariat along with dozens of victims of the alleged irregularities and scores of unemployed youth.

Later, addressing the media, Mahesh expressed dissatisfaction very first job recruitment activity initiated in the separate Telangana State. “The Public Sector Company issued notification to fill about 471 Assistant Grade posts. About 70,000 unemployed youth applied for the jobs. But only few families cornered the jobs. Some families got not only the first rank but also jobs to all those applied from it. About 70 jobs have been shared by a few families from Mancherial at the rate of two per family. Members from 54 families secured ranks below 250 and bagged 156 jobs. The family of the
official who committed the fraud has four of its members selected for the jobs. All these facts have come to fore because of the agitation by the youth who were denied jobs despite having been qualified and their parents,” he said.

Mahesh said there had been no action from the company’s vigilance wing even though the youth lodged a complaint with it. Responding to the complaint, Minister Jagadeeswar Reddy assured that he would personally look into the matter. According to Mahesh, the Minister also assured that he would blacklist JNTU which conducted the examinations in the event these irregularities proved are true and the Government would conduct the exam afresh in the interest of the unemployed.

KCR’s ‘Man Friday’ shifted from GHMC


Somesh Kumar, an IAS officer from 1989, batch has been safely shifted from  GHMC as the commissioner and special officer. He was posted as the  principal secretary, tribal welfare department.  He is probably one of the few  IAS officers, who enjoyed enormous political clout in TRS establishment after bifurcation and attracted unprecedented criticism for his proximity to the political bosses.

The shifting of  Somesh Kumar took place at a time when the Congress, BJP and TDP were demanding his head for the alleged removal of settlers read Andhras from voter list of GHMC in lakhs.  All these parties have represented to the Election Commission of India about the removal ‘hostile’ settler-voters along with some  from migrant communities, in order to reduce the negative vote for the ruling party TRS in the ensuing GHMC elections. Following the complaints from these parties, Election Commission has deputed a twelve-member inquiry team led by CEO of West Bengal. The transfer of Somesh Kumar assumes significance when the team has been scrutinizing the voter-list and veracity of deletion of names of the voters.

Somesh Kumar is generally seen as an officer very close to the power that be. It is said that he was the architect of the socio-economic survey conducted by state government, which was alleged to have been planned to locate the persons of Andhra origin. A column was included in the survey that seeks to know the ancestral district of residents of Hyderabad. This column had created unusual uproar  both in Hyderabad and Andhra Pradesh. The attempt to find out the ancestral origin attracted criticism even at national level as well. It was perceived by everybody as an attempt to eliminate the names of Andhras (settlers) from the voter list. Finally, the GHMC had to delete the ancestral district column. However,Somesh  Kumar remained.  Opposition attacked him as an officer working like the member of Pink Party.

Somesh Kumar, many allege,  worked hard to facilitate the easy win for the TRS rather than improving the life of citizens in Hyderabad. His tenure in GHMC will remain as period devoid of any noteworthy achievement, however, remembered as politically most controversial.

His attachment to TRS government is so strong that he even challenged the central government’s decision to allot him the state of Andhra Pradesh in the division of All India Service Officers. He has been waging a legal battle against the allotment  to stay put in Telangana  and has been remaining in TS on a stay from the CAT.

Warangal turning into a referendum on TRS govt


Warangal (SC) byelection is the prime topic of debate everywhere in Telangana state.  Because, as it is going to  be held at a time chief minister KCR regime finds itself in a politically not so conducive atmosphere in the state following many flip-flops in the administrative front. He took many decision and rolled back following an uproar from the civil society and opposition parties.  Chief minister earned  the moniker of roll-back CM. Riding on the wave of TRS government’s unpopularity, the opposition parties strongly believe that Warangal bypoll will be a referendum of sorts on the TRS. There is a feeling among all that  certainly it is going to have a bearing the politics in the run up to the 2019 elections.


BJP floor leader Dr Lakshman announced that Warangal election is referendum on TRS government and hoped that NDA candidate would win the election. BJP is to finalize its candidate in a day or two. Three candidates are vying for the BJP ticket namely,  Dr Devaiah, an NRI, former minister A Chandrasekhar,  and a local doctor A Chandramouli. TDP as per the understanding with BJP, left the seat to the saffron party. The party’s handicap is that the it is in short supply of heavy weights and PM Modi is not so attractive a personality in Telangana.


Of all the political parties Congress is more confident of a win. The party has successfully recovered from the 2014 electoral shock, thanks to  unpopular decisions of TRS government, and the dynamic young leadership. Congress and TRS think the contest will be between them only and presence of TDP and other parties are  nominal.  KCR himself acknowledged some time back that  Congress is the rival party in Telangana. Brimming with enthusiasm of running an uninterrupted campaign against TRS government for over a year, the Congress is mobilizing all forces at its command   to wrest the seat from TRS. Winning the Warangal bypoll will greatly improve the chances of coming to power in 2019- is the belief among the party leaders. Even AICC also thinks on the same lines. It’s also keeping tabs on the developments in the state. Competition for the  ticket is intense that half a dozen senior leader are lobbying for the ticket. Main candidates in the fray are Sarve Satyanarayana(former union minister), Damodara Rajanarasimha( former deputy chief minister),  S Rajaiah (former local MP), G Vivek(former Peddapalli MP ) Rajarapu Pratap, Dr Vijayaramarao. According to party sources, Congress conducted surveys in constituency and the results are in favor of Congress. Today or tomorrow TPCC president Uttam Kumar Reddy and working president Bhatti are expected to leave for New Delhi to finalize the name of the candidate.

The Left:

All the Left parties have already announced their common candidate. After unsuccessful attempt to rope in balladeer Gaddar, nine left parties, which include the CPI and  CPM,  zeroed in on Osmania  Law College principal Gali Vinod Kumar.

Telangana Rashtra Samiti:

Despite many hiccups in the past 15 months ruling TRS is confident retaining the seat because people are still with the party that fought and succeeded in getting statehood to the region.  The party believes people confidence is unshaken in KCR leadership.   TRS is planning to develop Warangal as next important city in Telangana after Hyderabad. Party leaders also believe that one campaign meeting by the chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao is enough to turn the wind in its favor. Ex MP Kadiam Srihari, whose resignation necessitated this election is trying hard to get his daughter nominated from the party. Earlier deputy chief minister, T Rajaiah is opposed to it and is said to have conveyed to the CM that his groups won’t be campaigning if Kadiam’s daughter is fielded. Interestingly, G Vivek,  Congress leader and son of G Vivek, is the topic intensely talked about as the possible candidate of TRS. ” If Congress denies him ticket he would come back and file nomination on behalf TRS,” said  TRS sources. Pulla Padmavati,  Congress MLC till recently, is also trying to switch over if ticked is offered by the TRS. Prof. P. Sambaiah,  Errolla Srinivas are the other others name in the circulation among the party circles. KCR as usual takes his own time keeping the aspirants guessing.The election to the Warangal (SC) constituency scheduled on November 21.

“Telangana is now a crisis-state”


Leader of Opposition in Legislative Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir accused chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao of showing utter disrespect to the democracy and ignoring conventions of the legislature. He wondered as to why the CM was hesitating to hold the promised all-party meeting Pranahita and other irrigation projects, which the CM was revamping unilaterally.

“You promised to hold all party meeting on Pranahita Chevella and other irrigation projects on the floor of Assembly and now you took a U-turn. This is nothing but utter disrespect for the Constitution and Assembly. Stop behaving in this immature manner. Your wrong approach has pushed the State into financial crisis and continuance of such behavior would only add to the losses,” he said. Under KCR leadership, Shabbir Ali said, the Telangana was falling into a ‘Crisis State’.

” The wrong policies of TRS Government have pushed Telangana into one crisis after the other. He turned Rs. 7500 crore revenue surplus Telangana, into a State with over Rs. 70,000 crore debt in just 16 months. As on today, the State’s exchequer has a balance of about Rs. 1800 crore while at least Rs. 3100 crore are needed to pay salaries and pensions. The TRS Government must issue a White Paper giving exact status of State’s finances,” demanded Shabbir Ali.

Shabbir Ali said that the education sector is in a state of neglect due to non-payment of fee reimbursement dues, lack of Vice-Chancellors in all 11 State universities and shortage of staff and other facilities in almost all institutions. The Congress leader also slammed the Chief Minister for taking immature decisions and reversing the same after a while. “KCR has become a U-turn Chief Minister. He took more than 15 U-turns in the last 15 months,” he said.

“KCR latest U-turn is on Metro Rail project route. He objected on the HMR route at Maozamjahi Market and Assembly building. Works were stopped for almost 16 months causing huge financial losses. Now he took a U-turn and said that the HMR authorities could go ahead with the original route plan. Who is responsible for the delay and huge financial losses?” he asked.

T-Cong cries foul on TS land-selling spree


Congress today took strong exception to the Telangana government’s decision to sell 8000 acres of land across 10 districts of the state.

Telangana Congress chief spokesperson Dr Srvan Dasoju ridiculed the government justification that it had decided to sell away the lands as it was not able to protect them. “It’s a lame excuse. It’s only a pretext to offer the precious lands to near and dear ones of the government,” he said. He released a photograph of a dharna conducted by the Telangana Rashtra Samiti on July 12, 2012, decrying the then chief minister Kirankumar Reddy’s decision to sell HMDA lands. The dharna was led by none other than


TRS fight against HMDA in 2012

present IT minister K T Ramarao.

“Now the same party, which is running the government, is resorting to the  practice initiated by a  regime which TRS fought against. Is it not height of hypocrisy ?,” Dr Sravan Dasoju asked. Dasoju recalled how the TRS leadership opposed the land selling  by Andhrollu during the T-movement. He wondered as to how  the Telangana government follows the footsteps of a rabid anti-Telangana chief minister and decides to transfer the land to private agencies and capitalists.  The TRS always talked about land grabbing in around greater Hyderabad. But it had  been  almost 16 months and not even a single acre land had been resumed by the government, he added.

“We can create anything, but not the Land. The land is a very scarce commodity  and it is required for future generations. It is a mindless act and is totally unacceptable to Congress,” he said. The Congress chief spokesperson said  the TRS leaders filed cases against Padmalaya studio alleging that they had grabbed crores  worth of government  land and now not only had they fallen silent, they had even given clean chit. “TRS government is very excited about the fact that Mahesh, film actor has adopted a village having his family indulged in such a massive land grabbing. The same hypocritical policy is being adopted in case of Nagarjuna also,” he said.

“The CM is spending crores of rupees on festivals, pushkaraas, temple constructions, temple donations and for other unproductive activities which resulted in the present financial crisis,” he said adding that if at there was any fund deficit, TRS leadership was to be blamed. He demanded  immediately revocation of the decision to sell  Telangana lands .

Speaking at Jito Business and Lifestyle Expo at Imperial Gardens in Secunderabad, the minister stated that TRS is the only party which worked hard in making Telangana state a reality and now TRS government will work towards achieving Bangaru Telangana.

Congress and TDP never called for a bandh during Telangana agitation, then why they are troubling the people of state now, he criticised the opposition parties.

“Why were they not showed their love towards farmers during their regime?” KTR questioned.

The state government had already waived 52 per cent of farm loans in the state and are working towards giving a better life to all the needy farmers but opposition parties are creating unnecessary drama for personal gains, the minister added.

He also alleged that the present situation of farmers is only because of the corrupt governance of earlier parties.

Nominated posts in Telangana to be filled post Dussehra


Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has to go through another headache of filling the nominated posts in the state and his party leaders are already queuing up to grab the opportunity. The discussion on nominated posts came up during the TRS legislative party meeting at Telangana Bhavan on Thursday.

According to sources, KCR had a detailed discussion on it and asked the party leaders to come with a list of names those who are eligible by Dussehra festival. The names for the nominated vacancies will be announced post the festival.

The nominated posts include state boards, corporations, market committees and temple committees. According to home minister Nayani, the priority will be given to loyal candidates who worked for the party during tough situations.

However, party heads will have a tough task to select the candidates as there are candidates who are working in the party for a decade or so and there are also candidates who shifted their loyalty from other parties to assume some nominated posts in the state.

Considering these, political analysts feel that there would be candidates who will come out in open to protest against their high command and.

On the other hand KCR also formed a committee with MLAs and MLCs under the leadership of commercial tax minister Talasani Srinivas to inspect the works of 360 houses at IBH colony. These two bedroom houses will be distributed among eligible poor people on Dussehra festival.

After the meeting, BJP leader chintala Ramachandra Reddy said chief minister KCR’s two-hour long speech on the floor of Assembly did not give hope for farmers of Telangana, who were embracing suicide as the solution to their crisis. PCC president N Uttamkumar Reddy said the all suicides were murders by the state. Chief minister was not at all ready to address the issue sincerely, he alleged. ” We won’t leave the government till the one-time loan waiver is implemented.,” he said adding that government was showing the death toll due to suicides reduced.

TDP Telangana president L Ramana also called upon the people to come forward to save the lives of farmers by participating in the bandh. Congress city president Danam Nagender urged the business houses and traders in the city to make the bandh a success and express solidarity to the suffering farmers. All the leaders said they would concentrate in making the bandh success in Hyderabad , as capital city bandh alone would put pressure on the government. The leaders were critical of the Government attitude towards running the Assembly. ” The chief minister said he would run the house for 15 days. Finally, it ended up a seven-day affair. The entire opposition had been suspended . The government adjourned the house sine die as if there was some urgent work more important than the suicides of farmers. Finally it turned out that Chief Minister was holding a TRSLP meeting to discuss Narayankhed bypoll,” they said.
Congress will organize a rally from Charminat to secunderabad on bandh day.
