Hyderabad is inseperable part of #Telangana .

An argument against Andhra’s claim over Hyderabad – Prof.Madabhushi Sridhar

The history and geography of three capital cities – Bombay, Madras and Chandigarh deny the claim of Andhras over Hyderabad.

The mortgagee cannot claim ownership of land because he built permanent structures on the land. Similarly the investors of different region cannot claim that city to be their own because of their structures. Once a tenant, always a tenant.

This is what Ambedkar said: “There is no foundation for the statement that the trade and industry of Bombay was built up by Gujarathis, the claim of mortgagor to his land cannot be defeated by the mortgagee on the ground that the mortgagee has built up permanent structures on the land. The Gujarathis assuming they have built up the trade and industry of Bombay are in no better position than a mortgagee is. But who have built up the trade and industry of Bombay seems to me quite irrelevant to the decision of the issue whether Bombay should or should not be included in Maharashtra. This argument based on monopoly of trade and industry is really a political argument. It means that the owners may rule the workers but the workers must not be allowed to rule the owners”.
The history and geography proves that Hyderabad is integral part of Telangana and thus should remain its capital. Hyderabad was capital of Hyderabad state for more than four hundred years, and a short span between 1956 and 2012 cannot lead to its deletion from Telangana for any other reason. The prolonged residence or business investments by some others cannot entitle them to claim the city as their own.

Bombay for Marathas
The architect of Indian Constitution Dr B R Ambedkar said in a memorandum submitted to Linguistic States Commission in 1948, which is highly relevant in Telangana context especially when Coastal Andhra Businessmen were laying claim for Hyderabad. “…homogeneity of a people depends upon their having a belief in a common origin, in the possession of a common language and literature, in their pride in a common historic tradition, community of social customs, etc. is a proposition which no student of sociology can dispute. The absence of a social homogeneity in a State creates a dangerous situation especially where such a State is raised on a democratic structure. History shows that democracy cannot work in a State where the population is not homogeneous. In a heterogeneous population divided into groups which are hostile and anti-social towards one another the working of democracy is bound to give rise to cases of discrimination, neglect, partiality, suppression of the interests of one group at the hands of another group which happens to capture political power”.

Now the statements by businessmen-cum-politicians including some MPs in AP reflect the absence of homogeneity and their lack of concern for the people residing in this part of the state also indicating lack of integrity in spite of ‘living together’ for 46 years. It is venomous speech, if not hate speech against Telangana.  It is immoral, anti-social and unbecoming of a leader. They need to understand Ambedkar and stop being hostile to Telangana, wherein they are making a living and huge profits at the cost of people in Telangana.

Ambedkar’s historic statements came in the context of Gujarathi Businessmen demanding Bombay as ‘their’ capital at the cost of Maharastrians before division of Bombay. As happening in Hyderabad now, a handful of investors were trying to hijack capital city from the its legitimate owners. Media highlighted proceedings of a small meeting held at Indian Merchants Centre by Gujarati-speaking merchants and industrialists in Bombay. Times of India, then also wrote an editorial in support of traders demand.  As ‘discovered’ by Justice Srikrishna Committee, the media is mostly owned by rich politicians from Coastal districts and they air the anti-Telangana talk incessantly. They project interests of few merchants as more important than the interests of four crores of people.

Dr. Ambedkar brought out the unreasonableness of arguments of Gujarathi merchants demanding Bombay: (1) Bombay was never a part of Maharashtra, (2) Bombay was never a part of the Maratha Empire, (3) The Marathi-speaking people do not form a majority of the population of the City of Bombay (4) Gujarathis have been old residents of Bombay (5) Bombay is a trade centre for vast areas outside Maharashtra. Therefore, they said, Bombay cannot be claimed by Maharashtra. It belongs to the whole of India (6) It is the Gujarathi speaking people of Bombay who have built up the trade and industry of Bombay. The Maharashtrians have been only clerks and coolies. It would be wrong to place the owners of trade and industry under the political dominance of the working classes who form the bulk of Maharashtrians, (7) Maharashtra wants Bombay to be included in Maharashtra because it wants to live on the surplus of Bombay (8) A multi-lingual State is better. It is not so fatal to the liberty of smaller people and (9) Regrouping of Provinces should be on rational lines and not on national lines.

The Seemandhra businessmen claiming Hyderabad, raise almost similar arguments. But this city was part of Hyderabad state and of Hyderabad empire, Telangana’s were in majority, in spite of flooding of migrants. The investors of Andhra were claiming that they built Hyderabad, conveniently not talking about its 400 years of glory. In fact the Andhra rulers left old and historic city to the religious fundamentalist party having alliance with them just for their vote bank, Conceding demands of political ally, they criminally neglected the development of old city, instead developed huge colonies elsewhere. They have also resorted to inflame fires of communal disharmony in old city just to dislodge a Telangana Chief Minister.

Ambedkar strongly campaigned for Bombay for Marathas, by history and geography, he said: Geography has made Bombay part of Maharashtra. Let those who want to challenge the fact of nature do so. Gujarathis declared that even after five thousand years Marathis will not get Bombay, Andhra leaders are also say that Telangana would never come.

To a question that Marathas were in minority and hence cannot claim Bombay, Ambedkar said, in British India, people were free to move and settle anywhere. If Marathas reduced to minority it is not their fault and that will not disentitle to own Bombay.

While Gujarathis claimed to have built industries in Bombay, Andhras claim that they built Hyderabad itself, as if it did not exist earlier. The pluralist society with Marathi, Kannada, Telugu, Urdu speaking persons flourished together in harmony. Until the ruling parties started cheap tactics of inciting communal riots to dislodge a chief minister belonging to Telangana, there was no bloodletting old city. Even today the rulers liaison with Majlis and concede all their unreasonable demands except the development of old city. They developed colonies for Andhras and then they concentrated development only there. The so called jala yajnam has facilitated contractors to spend their advance amounts in real estate leading to artificial boom in land rates that ruined the life and culture of the farmers and other people in Rangareddy.

Acting against recommendation of State Reorganization Commission, Maharastra without Bombay was created.  In making Bombay a union territory for four years, Gujarathi lobby was successful, but the agitation of Marathis which took the toll of 80 people led to conversion of Bombay into capital city of Maharastra on May 1, 1960. Though the investor lobby could deny Marathas their city, it was only for a short while.

The SRC preferred multilingual states rather than linguistic state which help minorities to survive.

Madras for Tamils
Andhras made unreasonable claims twice over capitals – once for Madras and secondly for Hyderabad now. It was stated that the Telugu Kings granted land for Fort St George with a condition that Chennapatnam should flourish as Telugu city for ever. The official centre of the settlement founded in 1639 as designated as Fort St Geroge. While Chennapatnam was predominantly Telugu area, Madras Patnam expanded on the otherside. Two – Chennapatnam and Madras Patnam together came to be called as Madras. Andhras wanted north Madras as capital of Andhra and South Madras as capital of Tamil province, as per Mr. K V Narayana Rao in his article ‘The Emergence of Andhra Pradesh”.

Story of Chandigarh
Andhras quote Chandigarh to support their claim for Hyderabad. Chandigarh has only geographical continuity for being a common capital. It does not have any history to be claimed as unique capital of Punjab or Haryana exclusively. After Punjab was partitioned between Pakistan and India, there was a need to build new capital as India lost Lahore to Pakistan. A new and planned city was undertaken at a strategic location reflecting nation’s modern outlook. On 1 November 1966, the newly formed state of Haryana was carved out of eastern portion of the Punjab, in order to create Haryana as a majority Hindi speaking state, while the western portion of Punjab retained a mostly Punjabi-speaking majority. However, the city of Chandigarh was both on the linguistic and physical border, and was thus created into a union territory to serve as capital of both these states. Recently there are claims and counter claims for Chandigarh as exclusive capital by both Punjab and Haryana.  Punjab Chief Minister Prakash Singh Badal raked up the Chandigarh issue in CM’s conference to which Haryana CM reciprocated strongly. This shows being a joint capital of two states with a status of Union Territory is no solution to the contentious problem. The Punjab Governor remains Administrator of Chandigarh on behalf of the Centre while Punjab and Haryana having stakes at 60:40 ratio. The secretariats and assemblies ofboth the states and headquarters of most departments are located in Chandigarh itself. They have a common Punjab and Haryana High Court. Now the Haryana is demanding separate Haryana High Court within Chandigarh. This shows how Chandigarh remains problematic as common capital.

Under any circumstances Hyderabad cannot be the capital of Andhra and it is inevitable to remain a capital of Telangana. But handing over the control of Hyderabad to Center is neither proper nor democratic. Hyderabad is as much most unwieldy and traffic reached its uncontrollable levels. If it is made common capital for two (or three states) with a UT status it has to have three headquarters which compound the problems and complicate living.

The history of Bombay and Madras laid strong foundation to deny the Andhras’ claim over Hyderabad and Chandigarh example does not justify their demand for Telangana Capital. Chandigarh could be common capital because of its geographical congruity which Hyderabad is lacking. Andhras or Seema leaders will not be reasonable if they claim Hyderabad for historical and geographical reasons and making it common capital will not add any value to Andhras except satisfying their ego of denying Telangana their own capital partly or temporarily.

The beginning of the End of KCR dominion in Telangana . Part V.

The beginning of the end of KCR hegemony . Part V.

Political Corruption is definitely an covert activity , robbing the tax payers money . It has its roots in almost all the countries, its a Global problem. Instead of cribbling on it , one should fight it and challenge it from every available Platform. If you cant challenge it , atleast speak about it openly. Be Brave & Be Smart , You decide who to govern you.

2 friends from my FB questioned me as why iam taking on KCR ??? And others after reading my precious posts too must be wondering the same . My write-up speaks as to why Iam taking on KCR. I strongly feel politicians like KCR are the reason for public to lose faith in Politics. Natives losing trust on the representatives who Govern them is an very dangerous trend for the Democracy. In the interest of Nation , such dangerous mistrust should be arrested.

Do I still favour a separate Telangana state , another asked ??? I DO . Telangana is my Motherland , i owe myself to it . My Love for Telangana State is like Himalayan Mountain , nothing can change its roots. I strongly feel that KCR is a weed spoiling the Garden of Telangana , weed has to be plucked and thrown away. And Iam working on the same lines.

What really bothered me is nearly 1000 students have committed suicides for ‪#‎Telangana‬ state in last 3 years. KCR along with Sonia G and Andhra Plutocrats have there share in driving students towards suicides. So , Suicdes and Police Lathis for Telangana students

The Leader , who promised Telangana , saying he has signals from Delhis, is now hiding in his farmhouse fearing a CBI Inquiry. It was SoniG on her Birthday announced Telangana state in 2009 , she backtraked few days later. KCR who rants against Andhraites has no guts to Question SoniaG in Parliament or in Media. have you ever seen KCR taking on Italian Mafoso ??? Nope !! It tells how much KCR fear SoniaG.

The other factor for KCR to drag Telangana issue is Extortion . For KCR & his Family Telangana sentiment has become a Money making Business . This is one such business where he does not have to invest any capital from his pockets. From Debts his family now lives in all kind of Luxuries.

KCR earlier life is no clean slate. he started his life as Dubai Passport/Visa broker. If you know anyone in Siddipet , ask them , they will narrate lot of untold stories. KCR in his 'puvashram' robbed the sweat money of poor labourers promising them a Job in Saudi Arabia. Number of criminal case were booked then against him , for some time he went absconding when poor labourers tried to trash him. KCR, maternal uncle who was then a Minister saved him from all the imbroglio.

The buck doesnt stope here with KCR. It now spread to his offspring too , the DNA of robing in the name of sentiment can be seen in his son KTR & daughter Kavitha. The beauty of KCR is , to avoid confrontation & confusion among the looters he has clearly demarked the Indstries . KCR Political opponents level charges that KTR extorts money from Software Companies , Kavitha from Film Industry , his nephew Harish Rao from Secretariat and KCR from Andhra Business Houses. He had made sure that no one will trespass int other zone.

When KCR raised Polavaram issue , we all stood on our legs to protest against the project . One fine day , KCR betrayed the Telangana Sakal janula Samme , surrendered to SoniaG and bagged Rs 4700 Crore Polavaram contract for his 'benaami' company. KCR raised voice against Metro Rail Route plan in HYD , we again stood with him , their Political opponents accuse that KCR family got supply contract from Metro L&T . The same with Ramoji Rao Film City , suitcases were exchanged , issue diluted ??? What about Nizam Sugar Factory , KCR said it will be privatised over his dead body, TDP MP Nama nageshawar Rao sent few suitcases and now KCR never talks about NSF.

When he started TRS in 2001 , you all mite remember that KCR collected Crore's in the name of starting a news paper called " Jai Telangana" . In fact "Jai Telangana" paper is owned by my friend Dr Prithviraj father Sangamreddy Satyanarayana , who is an Ex Cabinet Minister and Founder member of TRS. When the rightful Owner of the paper S.Satyanarayana asked the account details of money collected , he threw him out of the party.

Such sadful events of robing the peoples money by KCR Family exists in dozens or may be in hundreds. Today, Media or Opposition Leaders dare not to talk against KCR , any one raises a voice will be snubbed by dubbing him/her as Telangana Drohi. That gave him more courage to blackmail & embezzle public and Business Houses to rob in the name of Telangana sentiment . Just watch the growth of KCR , From a Passport/VISA Broker, now to owning TV Channel , Newspaper ,ShipYards and Mines.

We have witnessed how YSR family has looted the state exchequer to the tune of Rs 1Lakh Crore , then we were mute. Now the same fate loom large again on Tax payers money with KCR Family at helm of affairs.

In short KCR Family = YSR Family !!!

Mark my words , after August , Telangana will rise with a new dawn , will cut KCR to size and make him rub his FatNose on the ground. Thataastu !!!

RSS & Sewa Bharathi Uttarakhand Disaster Relief – REPORT II


A brief Report by Sewa International –UDAPSS- Team visiting the Flood Affected areas
July 1st 2013 Dehradun, Uttarakhand

Ø  Three  relief  camps  in  Uttarkashi  district    are  working  round  the  clock  –  Maneri,    Lakshyeswar  and  Naitawaar.

Ø  Dr.  Nithyanandji,  the  octogenarian  serving  the  community  since  last    two  decades  in  Maneri,    stated  that    Maneri  relief  camp  is  the  largest    relief  providing  camp  in  the  district-­‐    serving    maximum  number  of  affected.   

Ø  Vasukedar  village  in  Rudraprayag  district    has  been  totally  washed  away  and  needs  total    reconstruction.  Sewa-­‐UDAPSS    has  provided  tents,  utensils  and  ration/eatables  and  home  kits    for    the  families  as  part    of  relief.

Ø  Volunteers  in  Gupta    Kashi  relief  camp  have  identified  various  flood  affected  families  in   surrounding   villages   and   are   providing   first     aid,   medicines,   counselling,   and   relief  material  to  24    families  in  Lohanda    village,  18  families  in  Tilanga    village  and  6  families  in   Dhanashu   village.   Apart     from   providing   medicines,   the   volunteers   are   engaged   in  conducting   acupressure   and   also     conducting   yoga     &   meditation   classes   as   part     of  counselling.      

Ø  Most    of  the  survivors  of  the  floods  from  villages  are  living  with their relatives as they  have  lost    their  homes  &  hearths.
Ø  The  volunteers  serving  in  the  Narayana    Koti,  Rudraprayag  relief  camp  have  identified  27   babies-­‐     6months   to   4   years-­‐     who   have   been   orphaned   or   are   left     with   their   lone  mother   or     grandparents   due   to   the   floods.   Volunteers   have   already   provided   some  sort    of  service  for  the    babies  and  are  working  on  their  appropriate  rehabilitation. 

Ø  Agricultural   plots   have   been   inundated   with   landslide   mass   due   to   avalanches  destroying   crops,   rendering   all   these   fields   useless.   Flood   has   taken   toll   of   many  farmers  and  bread    earners  in  the  villages.  The  villages  are  deserted  and  all  those  who  are   left     are   seniors-­‐     old   aged,   widows   and   kids   who   cannot     earn   for   themselves.  Their  rehabilitation  is  another  major    task  ahead.  

Ø  Middle   school   and   High   School   students   in   the   age   group   10-­‐16     had   joined   their    fathers/elder   brothers,   assisting   them   in   running   shops   or   petty   business,   during  their   summer   holidays.   Their   number   is   expected   to   be   in   couple   of   thousands   and  most    of  them    are  either  dead  or  untraceable.
Ø  Youth   and   able   bodied   people-­‐     mostly   between   19-­‐30     years-­‐     who   were   the   bread  winners   for   their   families   have   been   lost     to   the   floods   and   livelihood   will   be   the  biggest    challenge  for    the  remaining  members  of  the  families.
 Ø  Mules  are  the  best    means  of  transportation  in  the  Himalayan  ranges  for  transporting  material   &     men.   12000   mules   (Horses)   owned   by   8000   owners   were   serving   the  flood   affected   areas   before   the   floods.   The   floods   have   consumed   more   than   9000  mules     and   4500   owners.   The   problem   of   transportation   has   become   a       Himalayan  task  due  to  this  loss  in  those  hilly  areas. 

Ø  The   rehabilitation   program   will   require   experts   in   construction   in   Himalayan/hilly  region   for   designing   and   constructing   houses.   Huge   funding   would   be   required   for  the   proposed   rehabilitation   program   in   which   houses,   community   centres,   schools,  clinics,  etc  will  have  to  be    reconstructed.    

Ø  Doctors   and   health  assistants  are  also   needed   in   good   number   for   reaching   out     to  many   flood     affected   villages.   We   would   provide   the   details   of   these   requirements  soon.

Ø  Volunteers  from  Uttarakhand    and    UttarPradesh,    Delhi,    Madhya      Pradesh,  Maharashtra     and   some   other   states   are   devoutly   engaged   in   providing   the   relief   to  the  flood  affected  in  far    flung  villages.    

Volunteers     would   be     required   for     the     rehabilitation   program     in   course     of    time  and   the  need  will  be  informed.  Till    then,    please  stay    tuned    in  and  hold    on
