HC slams Telangana govt's 'secessionist' laws

...
A division bench comprising Chief Justice Kalyan Jyoti Sengupta and Justice P V Sanjay Kumar termed “secessionist” the proposed move of the government to limit the financial assistance to students of Telangana (FAST)nly to those students whose parents were born on or before November 1, 1956. The bench was dealing with petitions by former ministers of the combined state Dokka Manikya Varaprasada Rao and Pitani Satyanarayana.
...
...
Chief Justice Sengupta asked the rationale behind fixing 1956 as the cut-off date for fee waiver. Refusing to accept the Telangana government’s argument that it was under severe financial constraint, Justice Sengupta said: “If you have no funds, scrap the whole fee waiver scheme. You can’t be selective by implementing an unconstitutional decision.”

“This government order will result in a secessionist and an anti-integrationist act. We have to protect the unity of the country,” the court said, refusing to pass an interim order.
...
...
In another set back to the Telangana government, the High Court stayed an order for re-registration of all vehicles purchased and registered under the erstwhile united Andhra Pradesh.

Responding to a PIL filed by a bike owner here, the same bench passed an interim order and said it would not allow misuse of power by the government in a “whimsical” manner.

AP High Court is also Androlla High Court - The name itself suggests it.

That is why we have beaten up one of the judges in the High Court premises ( we could not beat up others as the evil police are interfearing. However we could successfully beatenup/attacked even female androlla advocates in High Court premises itself in our freedom movement. Sengupta seems to be sold out to Androllu. Evil fellow. I am not sure about Sanjay Kumar - may be Androdu. No need to call him as evil fellow separately. If he is a Androdu then is is naturally evil fellow. If not he is sold out to them.

We rest our case.

Guys! Can we stop this back and forth arguments on Andhras and Telanganas. There is no point in this. You can't change perceptions. We have to move. Hopefully everyone moves on. It will take time for the poison unleashed by KCR and his gang to clear up.

Meanwhile ...

http://www.gulte.com/news/30949/KCR-Thr ... T-TDP-MLAs

Telangana TDP MLAs complained against CM KCR and his cabinet ministers to their party president Chandra Babu Naidu. They alleged that Telangana ministers are calling them and pressurizing them to meet CM KCR and are threatening to slap cases on them if they fail to comply to their orders.

Telagana TDP MLAs held an emergency meeting today evening and then complained to Chandra Babu about the daily threats from KCR's cabinet ministers. This assumes significance since recently Senior leader Errabelli Dayakar Rao met CM KCR and this rose to suspicion that he will join TRS and become cabinet minister.



I can tell you one thing. This scoundrel has no intention to develop Telangana. he is not interested in Hyderabad or water. The scum is interested in only one thing. He wants his cut in Hyderabad lands.

http://www.gulte.com/news/30968/Centre- ... bad-Metro-
The capital city of Hyderabad was preparing to have a proud moment with the Hyderabad Metro Rail project but before that can happen, Telangana CM KCR put a spanner on the works by proposing realignments and few other ideas. The issue became so big that L&T which is helming the project were on the verge of walking out of it.

But the Centre has intervened at the right time and sealed the deal. They have released a gazette notification declaring that no changes can be made to the original plan. So, KCR's proposal of an underground train system in Sultan Bazar and in front of Assembly is quashed.

This was the result of a meeting which took place between the Telangana Chief Secretary, union home ministry and 7 officers from the PMO. The notification maintained that no changes will be made to corridors 1,2,3 and any changes need the center's approval. With this, the Telangana government and KCR will have to adhere to the norms. However, the CM's response is awaited on this issue.

When we started this thread I had suggested we have two threads. However suggestions poured in to retain only one thread in interests of non-thread proliferation and to provide a single source of news and discussions of the Telugu people. Looks like some recalcitrant folks are still persisting in seeing dungeons in the castles in the air being dreamt by AP.

Please do not persist or you will get warned and banned eventually.

Sometimes truth has a way of coming out on its own but you still may not see it ...

http://www.apherald.com/Politics/ViewAr ... vernment-/

The new state of Telangana has reportedly stumbled upon some good news with a survey by the irrigation and panchayat raj departments finding that there are new 5,008 new small and medium tanks which were added to the state.

While there has been no official confirmation as to how the new water bodies came into existence, babus of the irrigation department have reportedly said that these are the result of watershed protection as well as check dams.

They were constructed by previous governments, especially the TDP regimes. The irrigation department has reportedly conducted a physical survey of all the tanks in nine districts as per the directions of irrigation minister Harish Rao recently.

This is for interconnecting and restoring them. The survey revealing that there are 5,008 tanks in actually excess of official figures has reportedly surprised the senior irrigation department officials who are overseeing this survey!

Irrigation officials were sleeping on the job if they didn't know how many tanks were already built by TDP govt which left office in 2004.

Not sleeping sir, looting openly. Entire focus is on "mega" projects and mega money under YSR gang and the same almost continued. They all know the facts and figures. But just not bothered to record it as it is not "important". Huge corruption in Telugu lands now is very difficult to contain and near impossible to reverse unless serious efforts are made soon. I do not see KCR or even CBN making them.

Meanwhile, after the skull-caps and namazi poses have been put away for the next bakrid, another set of appearences make a comeback, is it? Or could it be that CBN is going soft yindootwawadi after getting inspired by Modi's huge receptions at temples from Kashi to Kathmandu? Will temple visits be cool again??

Long one but worth watching. T-TDP's Revanth Reddy on TRS scams ,How TRS is deflecting the issue by projecting Revanth Reddy's criticism as an 'attack on Velama caste' etc




Meanwhile, Naidu fails to broker peace between Errabelli, Revanth

Andhra Pradesh chief minister and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) president N Chandrababu Naidu convened a meeting with warring factions on Tuesday in a bid to iron out differences. But, the stalemate continued with the rival camps led by Revanth Reddy and Erraballi Dayakar Rao sticking to their positions.

Evan as Kodangal MLA Revanth Reddy launched a scathing attack on the TRS government over an alleged land scam recently, his salvos left Palakurthy MLA Errabelli Dayakar Rao fuming.

A Velama leader, Dayakar was miffed particularly because Revanth Reddy's target was Jupalli Rameswar Rao, a businessman belonging to his community. The breaking point reached when he met Telangana chief minister and TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao, a fellow Velama, on Sunday.

While the meeting between Dayakar Rao and KCR sparked off speculations about an exodus from TDP to TRS, Naidu convened the peace meeting at his Lake View Guest House camp office. Sources, however, said Naidu's intervention yielded little fruit with both Revanth Reddy and Dayakar Rao refusing to come down from their respective position.


While Revanth Reddy is said to have pledged to come up with more exposes against the TRS government, Dayakar Rao rued it was a political vendetta against his community.

"Reventh Reddy clearly refused to budge and said there was no compromise when it comes to expose the corrupt TRS government. He said he would come up with more land scams in the future," said a TDP leader, who was in the meeting.

Dayakar Rao said that he would not put up with the revenge politics being played out while admitting that he had differences with Revanth Reddy. "It is true that I differ with Revanth Reddy on certain issues he has raised off late. The main issue, however, looks like an organised attack on a particular community which we cannot accept," Dayakar Rao told reporters, after the meeting.

Although Dayakar Rao admitted that he met KCR at his camp office, he said the meeting had nothing to do with politics and he would never leave TDP. "I did not meet KCR secretly. There were fifteen people with me when I met him. But that does not mean that I will leave TDP and join TRS," Dayakar Rao added.Sources, however, said a split in TDP might be in the offing with as many as eight party MLAs reportedly in talks with KCR. Along with Dayakar Rao, Manchreddy Kishan Reddy (Ibrahimpatnam), R Krishniah (L B Nagar), Paraksh Goud (Rajendranagar), Talasani Srinvas Yadav( Sanathnagar), Ch Dharma Reddy (Parkala) and Madavaram Krishna Rao ( Kukatpalli) are said to be mulling to cross over.

Sources said these legislators were teaming up in order to avoid disqualification under the anti-defection law since they need at least five MLAs to be treated as a separate group in the assembly.

The TDP has fifteen MLAs and according to the anti-defection law, if more than a third of them quit the party, they would not attract the punishment. The group is likely take a call on joining TRS after the Dasara festival.

TS government giving BCs a raw deal, say intellectuals

Mahatma Jotirao Phule Vedika, called ABCDE, a forum of intellectuals from backward classes, alleged that the TRS government in Telangana has been neglecting BCs as it has not taken any major decision about their welfare/development so far.

Chairman of ABCDE Prof. K. Murali Manohar and other office-bearers such as Prof. I. Thirumali, Prof. P.L. Vishweshwar Rao and Prof. Ravinder said Telangana was the only State in the country where 60 per cent of the population comprised BCs, but none of the 43 decisions taken by Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao so far had anything for the majority communities.

Key role

They felt that BCs, who played a key role in the Telangana movement, needed a comprehensive policy for their development as their livelihood activities were being usurped by industrialisation. In association with Institute for the Empowerment of Backward Classes (IEBC) they were conducting an intellectuals’ meet for preparing an agenda for BCs’ development on September 28 in which representatives of political parties would also take part, they stated.

The meet would prepare an agenda for BCs’ development and work for its implementation by the government, the professors said adding that neglect of BCs all these years could be summed up in the simple fact that there was no data on their socio-economic status available with any government agency, including the Planning Commission.

By harking on halcyon days of Nizamiyat and incorporating Nizami symbols into the newly formed Telangana state emblems, KCR is trying to create a continuity between his regime and Nizami regime with the the Andhra Pradesh interlude as a blink of an eye in history. In order to erase the memory of Andhra Pradesh he needs to glorify a previous regime and claim to be a successor regime to that regime.

His focus is a regional entity of which he is the Sultan and Raja.

However the reaction will come from a trans-regional entity for that is the historical forces driving India in this era.

Fall of Maharashtra and Orissa to BJP are key events to watch for of this trans-regional force shaping up.

When ever Karnataka elections are held BJP will come to power as the last time Congress came to power due to BSY being shunned.

Andhra Pradesh an ally of BJP has come to power. First step in reshaping Deccan.


Deccan historically has three areas plus an appendix : Maratha region, Telugu region and Kannada region with Orissa as swing state. Its located in Deccan but acts as a Northern state.


The big picture is Deccan is falling to a trans-regional political force.

This will result in re-aligning Deccan in the national political system.

Telangana should have been formed in 1970s.

Now its shape will be there but it has to join the larger Deccan.

The zanana-mardana system practiced in the Muslim community will now be adapted in the city for the safety of women.


Hyderabad: The zanana-mardana system practiced in the Muslim community will now be adapted in the city for the safety of women. From October 1, the TS Road Transport Corporation will operate buses with grills separating men’s and women’s sections.

On an experimental basis, these buses will be operated on the Secunderabad-Charminar route (8A).

However, activist Jameela Nishat of Shaheen of Women Resource and Welfare Association said, “The separation will only increase male curiosity. We need to change men’s mentality.”

Yagnasri, There were two major attempts to throw off the Muslim rule prior to the 1948 Operation Polo.

Musnuri Nayaka & Prolaya Nayakas and in early 1700s there was a small chieftain who was in Maratha mode. Both got betrayed by the local Telugu zamindars who felt threatened and used Muslim help and brought back Muslim rule.

KCR is doing same thing now.

Deccan has this historical trend for trans-regionalism with sporadic bouts of regionalism. Operation Polo was part of the trans-regionalism trend. Linguistic states was part of the regionalism trend.

Hell Might Freeze over and sky might be falling, but we telugu people will still discuss about the next ram charan or Mahesh babu movie, throng theatres in Massa land and in Andhra. Why are we so mad about movies. yesterday in karimnagar, there was a stampede at the theatre and a 19 year old fan died. The great hero Ram Charan declared 2 lakhs for the dead, probably less than the cost of the rims of his aston martin.

I was in Hyd for a 9 days and one of the senior marketing person told me that the Car sales which were going up at 20% pa earlier are showing 30% decline in Hyd. He is shifting to Bangalore this month even at lower salary. One dealer along said to have some 2400 Maruthi Cars pending delivery which were already shown sold but not really sold. Hotal I was staying is mostly vacant.

Good days ahead for all Telugu people.

Vizagites survived the fury of a ferocious cyclone Hudhud. I have seen the pics as trees almost flew like missiles. A lot of 70+ yr trees fell, the tall 20 floor apartments shook to the fury of wind. My inlaws live in MVP colony which is just a stone throw away from the eye of the storm when it made land fall at Kailash giri. No one remember when was last time that a cyclone did land fall to a big city.

It is not an exaggeration that there is probably no house or building escaped damage. The preliminary estimate in Seethammadhara, MVP area show that 10% of electric poles were uprooted, almost all electric wires got snapped, and every tree either fell or udergone some damage. Just on our street in Sethmmadhara I was told, at least 10 trees were uprooted and fell on the road or adjoining houses. Fortunately our house is spared. But several cars parked along the road were crushed. The total damage will be several thousand crores of rupees. Never heard or seen such a fury in a densely populated metro area. It will be at least a week before power is restored to majority of the households.

It appears that it will take months to rebuild the airport and may take few weeks before commercial flights are rescheduled. i heard even runway is submerged in water. Never happened this to Vizag and we all believed that its unique topgraphy protects it from cyclones and Tsunamis. What a timing to have once in 100 years disaster to hit the largest city of Andhra pradesh. The bad days for AP are continuing -no other way to make sense of this untimely disaster.

Acoording to news artciles, since 1891 where they started keeping the records of Cyclones, 103 cyclones hit Andhra Pradesh. Of these the ones that crossed AP shore are: Nellore - 23, Krishna - 16, East Godavari- 11, Srikakulam- 11, Visakhaptnam - 7, Praksam-5 , Guntur - 2. But the one that hit Vizag yesterday got to be one of the worst in terms of property and infrastructure damage.

I don't know your age but the one I have seen as small kid(I still remember though I was small) was that of 1977. It was a ferocious one that hit the divi seema of Krishna district. We just did a snap-count of who are alive vs dead. I cannot forget the bus journey from Vijayawada to Bhavdevarapalli (folks will go in less than couple of hrs these days). Even after two weeks, there are many dead bodies of people and cattle on the way. I am so small but those images will never go away. The entire cyclone disaster management started after that cyclone. In that village there are two big homes (my uncles) and who ever entered those homes and the one who clinged to library survived and rest perished.

But this is the first time a cat-4 hit a big city. I saw the TV. The trees are flying in the metropolis. The airport roof got stripped and the false ceiling fell.

Yes, i remember. The main characteristic of 1977 cyclone is storm surge, and those days there was neither the technology nor the communication infrastructure to alert people. Since then, we came a long way to predict very accurately the height of the tides as well as the location where the eye of the storm is going to cross the shore, BTW, the concept of cyclone shelter was created after the 1977 disaster. If it were to happen now, the human loss would not cross double digit as is the case with Hudhud as well as Phailin. As I wrote earlier, in terms of property damage this one will be up there in the list of worst cyclones to hit AP.

Thanks to early warnings and large scale evacuations from danger areas, fatalities have been minimal. But massive damage to the city. This will take some time to recover from. Not going to be possible in a few days.

Intermittent connectivity is there. Talked to parents over landline. A bit shaken up by the intensity of the battering, and uncomfortable without power and much water, but mostly smiling it off for now. House is a pretty old structure from the 70s, will need to check for damage.

I doubt electricity will be restored before the end of the week. They have to replace hundreds of electric poles and do thousands of meters of rewiring. Many transformers got uprooted. If at least they can restore the traffic by removing all the debris, fallen hoardings and clear all fallen trees and broken branches (several thousand) in the next few days, that would be a great achievement. This will help people to go out and get basic essentials.

That is unbelievable after the twitter image that I saw of the Vizag airport, to have it open for operations so soon is an achievement:

The next tasks are to get food and water to the displaced, restoring electricity, cleaning up the city, and providing assistance for people to rebuild their lost livelihoods.
