Leaders representing pro- Telangana parties and various organizations that spearheaded the T movement so well so long, had made it clear that the people of the region would not be able to afford another slip-up of what they had been fighting for.
Battle cry for Sampoorna Telangana
- CM will go before October 6
- A plundered Telangana merits special package
- NDA is ready, if UPA fails Change in Hyderabad status will trigger another phase of T stir
- Blasts Naidu, Jagan for change in stands
Hyderabad: Telangana protagonists on Sunday renewed their battle cry hitting back at Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy and the Seemandhra leadership for what they called their creepy campaign to scuttle the statehood process. Leaders representing pro- Telangana parties and various organizations that spearheaded the T movement so well so long, had made it clear that the people of the region would not be able to afford another slip-up of what they had been fighting for. Hence, there should be no room for complacency.
“Be vigilant” and battle-ready to fight back whenever necessary, they thundered. TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao made blistering attack on the Chief Minister for his Telangana rant and YSRCP leader Jaganmohan Reddy for his changing stands on Telangana. He said that the days of Kiran Kumar Reddy were numbered. He would not last beyond October 6 as Chief Minister. Quoting the AICC general secretary in-charge of AP affairs Digvijay Singh, who was also annoyed with Kiran Reddy’s recent outbursts, he said the stage had been set to unplug him.
A lakh of Kirans and Jagans would not be able to stop Telangana at this stage. Telangana would be a reality at any cost. He did not spare TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu for his vacillating stand.
Even if the UPA failed to deliver Telangana with ten districts and Hyderabad as its capital, there were national alternatives ready to make it a reality. The demand for Telangana state enjoyed the overwhelming support of many political parties in the country.
Responding to the thunderous applause from the crowds that packed the Nizam College grounds to full, he said people of Telangana who were exploited to the hilt for decades were the ones who would merit consideration for any sort of package. In an obvious reference to TRS decision to allow Hyderabad as common capital for a certain period, he said the accommodative stand of the Telangana people should not be taken as their weakness. He thanked BJP leaders Rajnath Singh and Sushma Swaraj for announcing their unconditional support for the cause of Telangana.
Hyd reverberates with ‘Jai Telangana’
Division will affect only 3.5% of Seemandhra people: Kodandaram
Hyderabad: Allaying the fears of Seemandhra people, the Telangana JAC Chairman Kodandaram felt that only 3.5 per cent of the people residing in Hyderabad would be affected due to bifurcation.
Speaking at the ‘Sakala Jana Bheri’ meeting held at Nizam College Grounds on Sunday, he said that 60 per cent of the migrants were poor labourers and no one would ask them to leave. In the universities and educational institutions, it was only 1 or 2 per cent. “As about 85 per cent of the seats are generally given to locals, the issue of bifurcation would not have great impact on students,” he noted.
He said it was only leaders like Kiran and Jagan, who have vested interests in the city, were running politics as business. Lagadapati, Kavuri and several others come under this category, he added.
According to him, 97 out of 100 would be getting employment and livelihood opportunities in Seemandhra, after the State is separated. As the new government needs new administrative machinery most of them would be absorbed in it, he said. Addressing the Seemandhra people, he asked them not to succumb to the temptations shown by leaders who were misleading the people with imagined fears. Critical of the attitude displayed by Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy in the recent days, he questioned Congress high command for tolerating a person like him as Chief Minister of this State.
Critical of media
Pained at the way some of the media outlets portrayed the agitation on both sides, he said that the noble occupation was turned as a tool for business interests of some Seemandhra businessmen.
Artistes enthrall crowd
Hyderabad: Many folk artistes, poets and writers from across 10 districts of Telangana region participated in the ‘Sakala Jana Bheri’, public meeting held at Nizam College Grounds, on Sunday. Telangana singers, who played a vital role in Telangana movement, sang on the culture of Telangana, the suffering of the region and its people through the decades and the reasons for bifurcation.
Noted Telangana singer Andesri sang ‘Jai Bolo Telangana’, lifting the spirits of the activists. Sai Chand sang ‘Veerulara Veera Vanithallara’ and Rasamai Balakishan, as usual, played his part in setting the ground on fire with his energetic performances. Deshapathi Srinivas sang and debunked Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy's attempts to create false fears among people.
