- for up to 10 years not more than that. Once the key telangana projects (identified at the beginning) are completed this condition is removed. Prolonged reservation for one region is not democratic.
If T-Folks claim that their water/power resource management suffered under constant change of "priorities" or technical viabilities and what have you - this claim is recognized, endorsed by and large in SKC, and self-evident fact..then water/irrigation /power ministry MUST be reserved to Telangana representative for a time period that sufficiently provides for the projects to begin and complete
- minimum 10 years (so key projects are completed)
If T-Folks claim is that revenue from T areas are diverted to the progress of A and to the disadvantage of T, then revenue ministry must be divided into 2 for each of the regions ( T and A) each at cabinet level to manage/tax as needed even if at separate level
. Instead of splitting the revenue ministry; the budget should have four tabs - Overall state, Telangana, Rayalaseema and Andhra regions. It may also ensure that some projects in non-T areas, especially the backward regions in Andhra and Rayalaseema doesn't suffer.
If T-Folks claim is that educational opportunities are deprived - then Education ministry of the state MUST be reserved to Telangana representative for a time period that sufficiently provides opportunity to course correct
If T-Folks claim is that employment opportunities are deprived - then Employment ministry of the state MUST be reserved to Telangana representative for a time period that sufficiently provides opportunity to course correct
. Along with this, I propose working with the central government to raise telangana battalions in para-military, Police and newly created Emergency/Disaster management agency. That may offer more employment opportunities to Telangana youth.
Along with this, for a period that is sufficiently provides redressal of grievances, all the ministries within AP MUST be shared between the representatives of T/A (NO T/A/R regions but just A and T) along the share of population in both regions.
Not sure if this works. Instead the structure of regional councils could be more effective.
Hyd should be de-cluttered of some of the institutions and spread out to different parts of AP some of which MUST be located in Telangana…if OPEN university goes to Nalgonda…that is fine, JNTU should be moved or created another in another part of Telangana, new institutions should be created evenly in all of AP..Immediate initiation of maintenance of existing dams and initiation of Srisailam left canal will address those concerns as well. this will give people something to feel the change hear and now.
. Since population of Hyderabad alone is expected to cross 1 Crore in a decade or so, it is better to leave the existing institutions as is and NEW institutions are established in all regions. The vision of one university for each district is a very good one and must be supported by providing sufficient funds. It is not that difficult for a state budget of > Rs1,00,000 crores to spend Rs 2700 crores per year (2.7% of the budget) on higher education.
Do not agree
I emphasize that every such agreement MUST come with iron clad guarantees to enforce this agreement and ensuring the safety of all people.
The ultimate guarantor in such situations is the citizenry itself. The telangana leadership (from village ward member to ZPPC/MLA/MP/CM) must provide an annual report to Telangana public and Telangana regional council.
Once this type of agreement is announced the entire responsibility lies entirely with Telangana leadership.Another proposal
I strongly propose that water resources are allocated by region so each region is ensured of this essential natural resource (especially given the future climatic predictions). These water resources have to be preserved, developed and assured for those regions only.
