KCR : None Can Stop Telangana. 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.

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.

Who said what
The Chief Minister should tender his resignation immediately, and take up Seemandhra JAC chairman post if he is determined to wage a fight for united State cause. TJAC will not agree for anything other than temporary capital status for Hyderabad. Seemandhra government could carry on their administrative activities from Khairatabad and Nampally mandals for a brief period.
- Mallepalli Lakshmaiah, TJAC co-chairman
The State government should release a white paper mentioning about the exact number of employees taking part in the Seemandhra stir. The figure quoted by the Chief Minister, that around 6.9 lakh employees were taking part in agitation in 13 districts, is not correct. Retired employees, pensioners and those who were dead were also included in this list. According to our sources, around 1.5 lakh Bahujan employees are not taking part in the ongoing agitation in 13 districts.
- G Deviprasad, TNGO president
Not a single tribal family owns a piece of land in Banjara Hills. Same is the situation in other posh areas in the city that have turned into Andhra pockets. Seemandhra staff have occupied lion’s share of posts in 204 HOD offices in Hyderabad. The Union government had not take the Telangana process forward even after 50 days passed since CWC announced its decision on it.
- V Srinivas Goud, TGO president
While APNGOs president P Ashok Babu claimed that 40,000 Seemandhra employees need to be relocated from Hyderabad in the event of division of the State, Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy, however, said that the figure was around 1.5 lakh. Seemandhra employees who got posted and are flouting rules should go. Telangana government should issue a notification for one-lakh government posts after the formation of the State.
- C Vittal, TUS president
Hyderabad region was way head of the Andhra region in terms of power before the merger. Nizam constructed Hussain Sagar Thermal Plant, which later was shelved by the Andhra Pradesh government. Now a multiplex has come in its place.
- K Raghu, Telangana Electricity Employees JAC
BCs, SCs and STs in Seemandhra region have welcomed the Congress party's decision to carve out Telangana. Various organisations and groups that are voicing support for Jai Andhra are being targeted in Seemandhra region. Telugu Desam and YSR Congress parties are competing with one another with an eye on occupying Seemandhra CM chair.
-Prasad, Advocate from Seemandhra region
Road Transport Corporation was continuously neglected in Telangana region for decades when compared with Seemandhra. Buses in good condition, including the Garuda services, were allotted and operated mostly on Seemandhra routes.
- E Ashwathama Reddy, TMU president
Seemandhra advocates are resorting to provocative actions by holding their meetings here. They should not follow the path of politicians who have been trying to scuttle Telangana process. Seemandhra lawyers could set up two separate benches for benefit of their public after division of the State.
- G Rajender Reddy, Advocate JAC chairman
Kiran Kumar Reddy had changed his stand on Telangana like a chameleon that changes its colours. Seemandhra people are residing in Mahbubnagar, Warangal, Nizamabad, Adilabad and other districts in Telangana region besides Hyderabad. Security concerns in Hyderabad are being raised only to hide their misdeeds in the State capital.
- K Govardhan, CPI-ML ND (Chandranna Group)
Telangana process is in final stages at present. Congress conceded Telangana State only after a long and relentless fight by people of the region. While Telangana struggle was born out of hunger and despair, the ongoing Seemandhhra movement is an undemocratic one. Kiran Reddy is resorting to foolish attempts to stall the Telangana process. CPI would even fight for the rights of Seemandhra population if required.
- G Mallesh, CPI floor leader in the Assembly
Hyderabad state would have been much more prosperous today if areas such as Nanded were not separated from it for implementing the linguistic State concept. Sushma Swaraj had declared that BJP would concede statehood to Telangana region in case Congress goes back on its decision.
The Union government should expedite Telangana process. A Telangana police officer should be appointed as the Director General of Police in place of V Dinesh Reddy.
- Nagam Janardhan Reddy, BJP leader
Any attempt to meddle with the status of Hyderabad would not be tolerated. BJP would not enter into political understanding with any party. If such an understanding was warranted, it would be only with pro-Telangana parties. The Cabinet note should be prepared at the earliest.
- Endala Lakshminarayana, BJP floor leader in the Assembly
