The Ministers in the State and at the Centre, who have now reconciled to the fact that division of the State was inevitable, have started giving up their demands for a united State and have intensified their efforts to get best benefits from the Centre for their respective districts in the region. While the Union Ministers would be meeting Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to present him with their wish-lists, the Minister for Endowments C Ramachandraiah, on Wednesday released a 21-page report to the GoM, demanding that the new capital for the residuary State be located in Rayalaseema region.
Ramachandraiah argued that Rayalaseema continues to be a backward region as no government had considered to develop the region. He said that though it had sacrificed the capital city when Telangana was merged with Andhra Pradesh, the region remained neglected for the last 56 years.
The people of the region felt that this neglect would continue even after the State gets divided due to abstract thoughts of the leaders. “The region has no assured water allocations which affects the agriculture sector. The successive governments had even ignored setting up of prominent educational institutions”, the Minister added. He demanded that the GOM should look into the problems of this neglected region and take steps to allocate 300 MCFT of assured water to cater to the needs of agriculture and drinking, promote industries in public and private sectors, generate employment for the youth, establish industries in government sector, educational institutes, research institutes, power plants and super speciality hospitals for the development of this region, before dividing the State.
The Minister said that unless the demands of the people of Rayalaseema were addressed, the Centre should not go ahead with the process of bifurcation of the state. Asked why he had changed his stand from being an arch integrationist, the Minister said that he could not sit idle waiting for the process to be put on hold. If he does not highlight the problems of the region, people will not forgive him. He further demanded that a public sector steel plant be set up in Kadapa on the land assigned for the Brahmani steel plant. Meanwhile, Ministers from Seemandhra regions Kanna Lakshminarayana, Dokka Manikya Vara Prasada Rao, K Parthasaradhi, Anam Ramanarayana Reddy, Kondru Murali Mohan and TG Venkatesh were advocating that the new capital be set-up in their respective native districts. Kanna, Dokka and Parthasaradhi want the capital city to be located between Vijayawada and Guntur, whereas TG Venkatesh wants it in Kurnool. Rayalaseeama Rashtra Samiti urged the GoM to create greater Rayalaseema by restoring the parts of Rayalaseema from Prakasam and Nellore districts.
The Samiti president Kuncham Venkata Subba Reddy in a 27 page- report submitted to the GoM said that trifurcation of the State into Telangana, Coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema was the best solution if all regions were to get equal justice.
