Hyderabad : Telangna Rashtra Samithi president K Chandrasekhar Rao on Sunday named party’s Secretary General K Keshav Rao as the candidate for ensuing Rajya Sabha elections.
Although the TRS has only 17 members in the Assembly, it is confident of getting support from the Congress party as Keshav Rao maintains a good rapport with the ruling party legislators due to his association with the Congress till recent past. He is likely to file his nomination on January 28.
The Congress is likely to contest for three Rajya Sabha seats while the TRS will contest for one seat.
Hyderabad : Telugu Desam Party MLA Revanth Reddy on Saturday condemned the Seemandhra leaders for staking claim on Hyderabad and Telangana.
Participating in the debate on Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Bill in the State Assembly, Revanth Reddy said that it was true that people from Rayalaseema and coastal Andhra region helped the Telangana people in liberating themselves from the Nizam’s rule. However, he alleged that Seemandhra leaders collected a huge reward by utilising the Telangana resources for the last so many decades for the help they extended before 1948. He said it was wrong on the part of Seemandhra leaders to stake claim on Hyderabad or Telangana.
Revanth Reddy accused former Prime Minister late Jawaharlal Nehru of doing injustice to Telangana region. He said people of Telangana suffered a lot due to a secret pact Nehru had with the Nizam for the merger of Hyderabad with Indian Union. The TDP MLA said that when sacrifice by one Potti Sriramulu could lead to the formation of Andhra Pradesh, then why the suicide of over 1100 students and youth could not lead to formation of Telangana. These remarks triggered strong protest by the Seemandhra leaders. Intervening on the issue, Dronamraju Srinivas accused Revanth Reddy of distorting the history to hide the facts. He alleged that the youth did not lay down their lives for Telangana cause, but they killed themselves at the instigation of some leaders. While the Telangana leaders are enjoying their lives, the families of those who committed suicide are still suffering, he said.Continuing his speech, Revanth Reddy asked as to why the State was named “Andhra Pradesh” after its merger with Andhra.
He said if the basis of State formation was language, then like Tamil Nadu, it should have been named “Telugu Nadu”. He said the State was named after Andhra for psychological reasons and to suppress the people of Telangana. He expressed regret that Urdu was not made the official language after Hyderabad’s merger with Indian Union.Revanth Reddy held the suppression of Telangana movement and use of force against pro-Telangana activists is one of the major reasons for rise in naxalism. He said youth who were subjected to injustice and denied job opportunities joined the armed struggle. These remarks again evoked strong protest from Seemandhra MLAs of Congress and YSRCP. Speaker Nadendla Manohar then gave opportunity to Legislative Affairs Minister S Sailajanath.
If the basis of State formation was language, then like Tamil Nadu, it should have been named Telugu Nadu
Sailajanath strongly condemned Revanth Reddy’s remarks and asked him to spell out his party’s stand on Telangana issue. He claimed that while TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu was in favour of united Andhra Pradesh, other leaders were speaking in different tones. He asked Revanth Reddy to specify whether he was expressing his individual views or his party’s stand on the statehood issue.
Strongly advocating the formation of Telangana, Revanth Reddy accused Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy of misleading the House by stating that Indira Gandhi was against the bifurcation. He said that the Hyderabad State was divided into three parts and the immediate formation of Telangana was avoided primarily to weaken the case of Hyderabad State filed in the United Nations.
Several MLAs including Dr N Raghuveera Reddy, P Vishwaraoop and Kondru Murali, Government Chief Whip Gandra Venkataramana Reddy and others raised objections during Revanth’s speech.
Hyderabad: Shortly there will be a procedural change in the admission process of technical education. The Technical Education Council is about to implement changes in the procedure in order to overcome the problems of misutilisation of scratch cards. As part of this programme, option procedure through the internet will be ceased hence forth.
Alternately, there will be an option open through the specially allotted helpline centres. However, there will be a huge financial burden on the government for this procedural change. The counseling fee is likely to be increased from last year’s fee of Rs. 600.
In case of the option change, an extra amount will be required to be paid by the student. A decision to this extent has already been taken by the Technical Education Council in principle. A final decision will be taken after the next meeting of the board of members with reference to their Friday meeting.
The salient features of the new proposals are as follows:
Hyderabad: Raking up a new controversy over the draft T Bill, Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy on Saturday sent a notice to the Speaker N Manohar under Rule 77 asking him to permit him to move an official resolution rejecting the AP Reorganisation Bill 2013. Similarly, in the Legislative Council, the Leader of the House C Ramachandraiah submitted the notice to the Chairman A Chakrapani.
The notice that was given to the Speaker by the Minister for Legislative Affairs S Sailajanath, which read: “The House while rejecting the AP Reorganisation Bill, 2013, resolves to request the president not to recommend the Bill to be introduced in Parliament as bill seeks to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh without any reason or basis”. Speaking on the Bill, Kiran asserted that that the bill could not be discussed in the present form. “The Bill does not contain the aims ‘objects and reasons’ or the financial memorandum. It has not been specified in the Bill why the Centre is seeking to divide the state and hence it should be rejected by the Assembly and sent back,” he said. Soon after this, the Seemandhra MLAs led by D Narendra Kumar also met the Speaker and gave another set of notices seeking permission to move a similar resolution. In a counter move, the T MLAs cutting across all parties met Speaker and told him that the Assembly cannot move any such resolution.
Minister for Panchayat Raj K Jana Reddy wondered how the Chief Minister could submit such a notice to the Speaker in the capacity of the leader of the House without taking either the consent of the Telangana members or the State Cabinet. He is understood to have decided to write a letter to the Governor and is also to go to Delhi to register his protest against the attitude of Kiran with the high command.
TRS Legislature Party leader E Rajender, MLA’s KT Rama Rao and P Srinivasa Reddy along with government chief whip G Venkataramana Reddy met the Speaker and demanded that he reject the notice given by the Chief Minister. BJP MLA Nagam Janardhan Reddy and Congress member P Shankar Rao too called on the Speaker and asked him to reject it.
