INN Live Urdu News Channel - India Breaking News, Headlines, Hyderabad اردو خبریں » Telangana Sun, 22 Dec 2013 15:36:13 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Pseudo-secularist Naidu stalling T-process: Shabbir Ali Sun, 15 Dec 2013 13:56:53 +0000 Hyderabad, Dec 15: Congress MLC and PCC Vice-President Mohammad Ali Shabbir on Sunday accused Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu of trying to stall the process of Telangana formation by joining hands with the Bharatiya Janata Party.

Speaking to media persons at the Assembly media point here, Shabbir Ali described Naidu as “pseudo-secularist” who is struggling hard to forge an alliance with the BJP. He said that Naidu has been making desperate attempts to return to the NDA fold and that was the reason why he shared dais with BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on two occasions in the recent past.

Shabbir Ali said that the TDP chief appears to have realised that he would be rejected by the people in next elections due to his dual stand on Telangana issue. While he gave letters to the Centre supporting Telangana, he created obstacles in the T-formation process through one or the other means. He demanded that Naidu should take one stand on the statehood issue. He said Naidu could emulate YSR Congress president Jagan Mohan Reddy who reversed his stand on Telangana and now supporting united Andhra Pradesh. He said such a move would save Telangana people from being cheated by the TDP.

The Congress leader said that Naidu’s proximity with the BJP was clearly aimed at stopping the Telangana formation process. He reminded that it was due to its alliance with the TDP, the BJP-led NDA did not grant statehood for Telangana while in power. Now Naidu wants the BJP to stall the Telangana Bill in the Parliament to delay the process. However, he said that the Congress party was firm on its commitment towards Telangana and it would be a reality in the next few weeks.

Shabbir Ali wondered as to how Naidu, who expressed regret for not breaking his ties with the NDA after 2002 communal riots of Gujarat, could decide to sail along the same leader (Narendra Modi) who is accused of being responsible for the genocide of Muslim community. He said that Naidu’s sharing of dais with Modi for the second time has exposed his pseudo-secularism and people would teach him a fitting lesson in the next elections.

JC demands special security for Assembly session Wed, 27 Nov 2013 13:40:48 +0000 Hyderabad, Nov 27: Former minister JC Diwakar Reddy on Wednesday demanded that special security arrangements should be made for the ensuing session of the State Legislative Assembly.

Speaking to media persons here, Diwakar Reddy said that since the Assembly would debate Telangana Bill, the atmosphere, both inside and outside the House would be stormy. Therefore the law and order would be the biggest issue to be handled during the session.

Further, Diwakar Reddy said that the regional feelings have hurt the cordial relations between the legislators and ministers of Seemandhra and Telangana regions. He said the legislators too might attack each other with strong comments during the session. He said that Macherla of Guntur district could be the appropriate place for the new capital of residual of Andhra Pradesh State after bifurcation.

YSRCP condemns Centre’s divisive plans Wed, 27 Nov 2013 13:36:45 +0000 Hyderabad, Nov 27: Condemning the adamant attitude of Central Government in going ahead with the division process of the State, YSR Congress has said the exercise is political in nature and brazenly undemocratic as majority of the people of the State are opposing the bifurcation.

“While the resolutions sent by Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra seeking bifurcation of their states have been pending for a long time, the Congress-led UPA government is in a hurry to divide Andhra Pradesh unilaterally without giving a chance to the assembly to adopt a resolution though 75 % of the people are in favour of a united state,” party senior leader Mekapati Rajamohan Reddy told reporters here on Wednesday.

The division process has gained momentum at a time when Congress performance is dismal in the state and is on the brink of utter defeat due to its anti-people policies. It has whipped up regional passions and is trying to gain sympathy from a region and win a few seats in the next elections by dividing the state.

“We demand that the undemocratic process of bifurcation should be stopped and the Centre should review its decision immediately as it goes against the interests of the people” he demanded.

UPA is redefining democracy by its dictatorial approach without taking assembly into confidence and racing at breakneck speed to wade through the process of division with GoM and other Committees working hard to bring out the draft Bill and send it to President, Mekapati remarked.

“In normal case, two months or more would be given for the assembly but here reports say that the time would be limited to 10 to 15 days to enable the Bill to be tabled in Parliament before December 20, the last day of the winter session,” Mekapati stated.

Chief Minister and Union Ministers from the State are speaking in different tones and singing different tunes and it is high time for them to prove their sincerity and move towards stalling the division. It is not mere statements, but they should act and show the people that they are committed for the cause of a united State. “They did not give the actual report depicting ground reality and were only carrying out orders of the high command and are very submissive to Delhi,” he said.

“Our party President Sri YS Jagan Mohan Reddy could convincingly put forth his contention before all national leaders the injustice that is happening in Andhra Pradesh and the way in which Centre is misusing article 3 and dividing the state without taking assembly and public representatives into confidence,” he said, adding that despite all the activity in Delhi, YSRCP is still confident that it can succeed in keeping the state united as the leaders of the national and regional parties were impressed on the injustice being done in the division and the gross misuse of Article 3.

“NCP leader and Union Agriculture minister Sharad Pawar, who is also the chief of Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) and former BCCI president, has explained the demand for a united state in cricketing parlance.  Pawar said there were placards displaying the wish of the people to keep the state united during the recent one-day match between India and West Indies at Visakhapatnam,” Mekapati remarked and added: “The message has been loud and clear and in the open for the world to see.”

YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s campaign against the Congress attitude in dividing the state was taken well by the national leaders and his contention that a resolution with two-third majority in the concerned assembly and both houses of parliament is a must to divide the state has become the discussing point for the political parties.

“We will overcome this phase,” he said and slammed the Rayal Telangana slogan contending that it is being floated to further create a wedge. “If local leaders are giving their nod, they are not sure of their political standing. They must have been carried away by false notions, but it is not in the interest of the people,’ he said.

Opposing Telangana is not revolt against Congress: Ganta Wed, 27 Nov 2013 13:24:56 +0000 Hyderabad, Nov 27: State Minister Ganta Srinivas Rao slammed PCC president Botsa Satyanarayana for stating that disciplinary action would be taken against those who opposed the decision of the Congress Working Committee on Telangana issue.

Speaking to reporters at the Secretariat media point, Ganta said that the criticism against the CWC decision to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh was not revolt against the Congress party, but expression of views of people that Seemandhra legislators represent in the Assembly and Parliament. He said that if opposing CWC decision was indiscipline, then both Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy and the PCC chief himself were guilty of doing this. He advised Botsa to ignore the issue and avoid any follow-up.

Ganta said that there were some leaders who were targeting the Congress party in order to join other parties. However, there are some leaders who are still holding the flag of Congress party despite their opposition to party’s decision to divide the State.

Referring to the demand of Union Minister K Chiranjeevi to make Hyderabad a Union Territory, Ganta said that those were the individual views of Chiranjeevi. He said that Seemandhra legislators have not changed their stand and were still demanded that Andhra Pradesh should remain united.

JC hails CM’s courage in opposing Congress HC Mon, 25 Nov 2013 12:31:32 +0000 Hyderabad, Nov 25: Former Minister JC Diwakar Reddy on Monday praised Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy for his courage to counter the Congress High Command on the issue of bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh.

Speaking to media persons in the Assembly premises here, Diwakar Reddy said that the Chief Minister was effectively handling the bifurcation issue and even went to the extent of opposing the party High Command’s decision. He said no other Congress Chief Minister in the country would dare to do what Kiran Kumar Reddy did on Telangana issue. He also praised the Chief Minister for effectively running the State for the last three years.

Diwakar Reddy said that the Congress party was weak when Kiran Kumar Reddy assumed charge three years. However, he strengthened the party at levels and the victory of Congress party in Panchayat Raj elections was a proof for the same. However, he said that the Congress party received setbacks in the State due to Telangana issue.

Speaking about Rayala-Telangana, Diwakar Reddy said that the proposal was actively being discussed in political circles and several leaders were in favour although they were not expressing it due to political compulsions. He said he would discuss the proposal when the Telangana Bill is tabled in the Legislative Assembly. He condemned the Intelligence Bureau for calling up leaders over phone to seek their views on Rayala-Telangana.

Diwakar Reddy sarcastically said that the final decision on keeping the State united, Telangana or Rayala-Telangana would be taken by “Amma” while referring to Congress president Sonia Gandhi.
