Telangana State had to be established primarily to solve the Water Supply Problem for Telangana Farmers.
Kaleshwaram LIFT Irrigation Project Begins at #Kaleshwaram confluence point of Pranahita Tributary in River Godavari.
CM KCR Kaleshwaram LIFT Irrigation Project will LIFT daily 2 TMC Water during the Rainy Season of about 120 day July till October and some what less in June and Nov – January Period
Once Water Reaches Mid Maner within 2019 for the first time Over 10 Lakh Acre Irrigattion would Happen Under New Ayacut created by Kaleshwaram and the Large Canal and Reservoirs built but not having Water in Godavari River from Maharashtra for many years under Sri Ram Sagar Project, Lower Maner thru Kakatiya Canal and Flood Flow Canal Systems.
Overall below New Comman Area will be Created Under Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Project
2019 KCR’s Kaleshwaram Project will Make him Independent India’s First Leader Who Made Jai Kisan a Reality by Providing Water Security ie Life Line for Indian Agriculture by Topping up the Water Table not by depleting the Water Table, By Leveraging the Surplus River Water for Welfare of Indian Farmers to Driver Poverty out of Rural Telangana.
#KCR4Bharat would become Buzzword in 2019 and Kaleshwaram Would Catapult KCR in to National Politics as a Politician Who Delivers Goods and Solves the Problems with innovative Ways.
The stated objective of Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) is to help the Minorities persecuted in 3 neighboring Muslim countries be Given Fast Track Citizenship. Let’s assume its Spirit and intent is same as what is written in the act, even then this is not in India’s Interest or should be the Priority. Firstly India has been Host to any persecuted people from any part of the world before and after independence as stated by Swami Vivekananda in his famous Chicago address:
“I am proud to belong to a nation which has sheltered the persecuted and the refugees of all religions and all nations of the earth“
So its established that we did it without CAA for all persecuted and refugees and we should continue to do so and take pride that we do it for all people without discrimination as part of our ethos of Global Family of Humanity, there is no need for any such discriminatory law that is against the Idea of India as enshrined in our Constitution Preamble that includes LIBERTY of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship; EQUALITY of status and of opportunity; and to promote among them all FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual and the unity and integrity of the Nation;
CAA Negates Liberty as it discriminates Muslims, Atheists, Multi Religious people by Excluding them, CAA Negates Equality by Selecting Only 3 countries excluding Rest of the Neighbours and other countries in the world, it Completely Negates the very idea of Fraternity as it is removing the dignity of the individual by removing the right to not to disclose the whether he/she believes in a one faith or multiple or does not believe in any faith as it forces the Seeker of Indian Citizenship to declare the mono Religious belief which has no means to verify from the country from where the person entered India as its outside of the jurisdiction of Government of India other than accepting the declaration, which if is used by Foreign Agents to enter India and dupe the authorities to live and be the Agents of Foreign Intelligence the Risks to the very Unity and Integrity is too High and is totally avoidable.
Now to see what is the official Record of those who actually can benefit from this fast tracking of the people in India on Long Term Permits, as per IB reply to Parliament Committee on CAB its Only 31,313 people as against Over 89 Lakhs People who migrated in 1947 Partition into India and are already settled and became Citizens on top of it another 11 Lakh Migrants from Bangladesh entered in 1971. The Point is India has moved on so are these countries and people there is no such large migrations currently happening now and official IB Reply says only 31 thousand plus may be immediate beneficiaries of fast tracking by CAA otherwise they also become eligible over next 6 years as per pre CAA provisions that are fully in compliant with the ethos enshrined in preamble of Constitution of India.
Now lets come to the purpose of National Registrar of Citizens (NRC) this is a misleading name in the first place, its an outcome of Assam Accord and the Right name should have been Indian Citizens Registrar of Assam State to establish who were the Pre Bangladesh War Resident Indian Citizens of the state of Assam, be that as it may even after supreme court monitored exercise that costed more than 1000 crores Tax Payers Money and enormous invaluable Time of Judiciary and administration has beaten the very purpose as the Indian “Jugad” mechanism ensured most Migrants actually made it to the NRC with forged records and the natives or other migrants from rest of India got excluded, simply they never had bothered or thought they have to prove their Indian Citizenship and hence could nor provide the complex old documentation in time for various reasons. Resulting in 19 Lakh Residents in Assam are now stateless and ironically Majority seem to be not Bangladeshi Muslims, as reports suggests roughly 14 lakh are non-muslims and 5 lakh muslims and the sense is about half may be native of assam and other migrants from within India
Now the Home Minister has been consistent inside and outside parliament telling the chronology clearly that Government of India will bring CAA which he already did and then they will implement NRC across India before 2024.
The Question is, Does India not have NRC already in one form or the other, what is the lesson drawn from failure of NRC in Assam and then why Repeat the same mistake and at much larger scale.
First to think India does not know who its Citizens are is an Insult to the entire Governance from 1947 till now of all PM’s including Sri Vajpayee and Modi himself, this is simply not true. Firstly Only 18 years and above Indian Citizens get to vote in Indian Elections so the Voter List maintained by the Election Commission of India that is regularly updated before every election in Center and state is a Reasonably accurate NRC of 18 and above Indian Citizens. As far as below 18 Indian Citizens by now I would assume at least 90% of them already have #Aadhar Card. So, there is no pressing need for an NRC that adds any significant strategic value to the nation.
In my Opinion Enhancing Aadhar by adding Place of Birth and Nationality addition and giving certain period for existing card holders to get them updated and new Aadhar Cards with this 2 additional information will meet the fundamental objective of NRC on its own or in combination with Voters List and Passports in case of NRI’s.
There seem to be no National Interest or Urgency for India to rush CAA or NRC, when the economic is slowing down rapidly with none of the measures taken by the Government making any impact and with over 2 crores youth joining workforce joining every year while the Job creation is too low, resulting in increase in unemployment and underemployment. Clearly the Major Reason behind the BJP PM and Home Minister Agenda behind CAA and NRC seem political rather than any significant and urgent national interest.
Below are the likely political drivers behind the CAA and NRC in that sequence. 1. CAA will reduce the current stateless number in Assam NRC from 19 Lakh to less than 6 Lakhs as about 13 lakh or more may file the affidavit complying with new CAA requirements and become the Indian Citizens in Assam which will be to the political advantage of BJP in Assam
2. CAA will enable BJP to a reduce the need for detention camps to about 6 Lakh instead of 19 lakh and then its policies may make a lot of them opt to go back to Bangladesh officially or unofficially which again is a Big political victory for BJP
3. With above 2 Political Points scored BJP will launch for aggressive campaign for NRC in West Bengal and put the TMC on defense and it will bring rich political dividends for BJP in West Bengal.
4. With these 2 Big Political gains BJP will have permanent tool in its hands to drive polarization in each state to its political advantage with regional parties refusing to comply and it suits BJP to project its Nationalist appeal and brand others as not thinking and acting in the interest of the Nation.
5. BJP will have permanent legal means to harass Non-BJP voters, using the central authorities, as long as it is in power in the Center.
About the immeasurable damage the CAA and NRC duo to India is not only about the Idea of India, it damages the reputation of India as an inclusive and compassionate country representing Unity in Diversity with Harmony. It will cause enormous damage to the potential migrants from India for better life to various countries including Islamic countries as they would be now looked up on differently and granting Citizenship and Resident Permits could become more stringent more so to Non-Muslims from India in Islamic countries where millions of Non-Muslim Indians currently live.
This would also put millions of minorities in the three countries become more vulnerable.
Worst impact is to the India’s chances of Permanent Membership in United Nations Security Council.
Unless the CAA and NRC are nipped in the bud immediately which seems to be only possible by the honorable supreme court, declaring the act as unconstitutional and hence void. I wish, hope and pray this happens soon.
Hope and pray people become wiser to be more careful and do more scrutiny of the political motives behind the announcements by political leaders during campaign and elect the members of parliament with integrity to defend the idea of India and not become a pawn of any of their supreme leader(s).
Long Live Constitution of India Jai Bharat
Sharing the Telugu Version Publishid in Namaste Telangana Daily on 24th December 2019
Ruling BJP Government in Center has mastered the art of Centralization, while successfully misleading people and political parties talking about Competitive Federalism whenever, wherever it suits.
Republic India has all along respected the Basic Spirit of Federalism where based on Finance Commission Recommendation every 5 years a devolution formula of Federal Revenues between Center and State is followed for 5 years. This has by and large played significant role in progressive states develop faster on their own and allowed center to concentrate on helping the states needing special attention.
Once BJP Came to power in 2014 it has done eye wash of accepting the 14th FC recommendation to increase the devolution to states from 32% to 42% and tried to take maximum political credit in reality it has increased the cess on central taxes and oil etc and also cut heavily on central schemes passing central funds to states that were not counted as part of devolution that are not part of devolution, effectively it took back from another hand what it showed as a Big heart.
Now on 17th September 2019 Union Cabinet has unprecedented step of Adding new Terms of Reference to 15th commission that is almost in the verge of completing its report to Create another Center Only Large Hole to be hidden from Public Scrutiny in the name of Defense and Internal Security.
This Government has already exploited the emotions and sentiments for political gains without any such Big access to Central funds without democratic scrutiny.
It is quite obvious this New addition has a well though Agenda to puncture Federalism and weaken states and make the Center All powerful without any checks and Balances,
It is quite obvious this New addition has a well though Agenda to puncture Federalism and weaken states and make the Center All powerful without any checks and Balances.
If alarm bells are not ringing in the Regional Parties leaders and think tank and they do not come together, it would be too late to correct the irreparable damage this would be doing to the Federalism and accountability and transparency of Center to the people at large.
Careful reading of the amendment to ToR gives enough clues about two things, center wants to keep a seperate and solid pocket in the name of defence and internal security and will create new mechanism that will have no checks and balances , transparency and accountability and all such expenditure will directly cut into the developmental needs of state governments, this is taking India into Putin’s Russian Model of Authoritarian Unaccountable Governance model.
Coming April or May 2019 will See Results of Parliament Elections in India and General Consensus is No Single Party will get the Majority hence it’s going to be again back to Hung Parliament times for India.
It’s going to be Watershed Elections in the History of India as it will Have Non-Congress and Non-BJP Parties winning more than Either BJP or Congress. Constitutionally Alliances before or after elections have no difference in Parliamentary democracy of India. Pre-poll alliances are an arrangement of convenience between the political parties to increase the winnability to take on the stronger political adversaries, they have no recognition whatsoever in the rules and regulations of the Election Commission of India.
Nitish Kumar Winning the election in Bihar in alliance with RJD and then Joining the opposition BJP to form Govt again is the best proof and Andhra Pradesh CM winning in alliance with BJP and quitting NDA and now joining Congress to fight the local stronger opposition is another live example and there are many more interesting examples of JDS in Karnataka, Shiv Sena in Maharashtra and the list goes on.
The point is, there is nothing to stop any political party even if it’s in alliance with another during elections from joining with any other political party post-poll.
So, I have considered all Parties other than INC and BJP as Others (Non-Congress, Non-BJP).
My personal sense of the current mood and Minimum and Maximum Seats I expect for General Elections in India is Given Below as
Summary of 543 MP seats between BJP, INC and Rest.
State and UT details of between BJP, INC and Rest.
Here are some Major Factors that I believe will impact BJP, INC and Others:
BJP (From 282 To [106~193]): Across India, I expect BJP to lose 4% to 8% of Vote share as compared to 2014 where it achieved highest vote share and seats in its history based on Anger against UPAII coupled with Pro-Modi Wave, it surely had Black Swan Moment. Factors that will reduce the Vote share is :
Demonetization Impact on Farmers, Unorganized Sector, SME and House Wives
GST: SME’s Worst hit
Cow sale Ban: Big impact on Rural India
Rural Distress is Real and Anger is Significant
Youth Aspirations Shattered with No Meaningful Jobs Creation
Lynching: Muslims and Dalits are Highly disappointed
OBC’s Undercurrent of being let down with Excluding them from EWS Reservations
Citizenship Amendment Act will impact BJP in North East and Bengal in Big-way
RafaleDeal: will move some of the Middle class simply due to the fact HAL is removed and Ambani floated JV with Dassault and PM is not explaining what he did, why he did and how he did to people of India which leads to the suspicion that there is something to hide.
In terms of Seats: UP the alliance of SP-BSP-RLD will hit BJP Prospects in UP Big way, Though BJP lost Rajasthan and MP Assembly elections, expect BJP to do better than Congress in both states in Parliament elections. Though BJP believes it will have Big Gains in Bengal and Odisha, I do not share such optimism as the Jump required to convert Votes to Seats is too High.
INC (From 44 To[78~159] ): Across India, I expect INC to gain about 2 to 4% of Vote share as compared to 2014 which was its lowest ever, so it can only go up. Yet it won’t be able to convert the BJP losses into own Gains simply because Direct fight states are less than half (Gujarat, Rajasthan, MP, Chattisgarh, HP, Uttarakhand) in all other states there are allies or Others who will Gain from BJP loss of Votes and Seats
Gains would be limited to
Karnataka JDS alliance
Maharashtra NCP alliance
(Non-Congress and Non-BJP) from 217 to [230 to 312] :
There is no doubt the BJP vote share losses would be shared between
Congress and Others, its hard to Predict about Seats for Others since there are
too many factors and some of the Others are also going to lose but gains would
be to others again so they square off like in AP, TN and Maharashtra where YCP,
DMK, NCP may gain at the cost of TDP, SS, AIADMK respectively
Big Gain is expected in UP from SP+BSP alliance and Bihar too BJP already gave up 5 seats it won in 2014 to JDU!
So While it’s almost Certain, there is not Going to be another Modi Sarkar with Own Majority the Outcome throws all options open. Unless BJP secures 200 seats the Mandate will be seen as against Modi even if it’s the Single Largest Party.
Only way Modi and
BJP will be able to attract new allies is to Embrace “Federalism” as the
National Agenda for Governance in place of BJP Hindutva Agenda.
Same is the Case with INC and Others, hitherto NDA or UPA agenda’s will not be acceptable to most of the 6 Large Strong Regional Parties (BSP, SP, TMC, BJD, TRS, YCP)
Below 5 Types of Federal Formations have Equal Chances to Form Next Govt in India after 2019 Elections
Anti-Congress BJP Lead Federal Front: Potential Allies are: JDU, Akali, Sena, YCP, AIADMK
Anti-Congress BJP included Lead by Others Federal Front: Potential Allies are: JDU, Akali, Sena, YCP, AIADMK, BJD, TRS
Anti-BJP: INC Lead Federal Front: Potential Allies are: TMC, DMK, RJD, NCP, Left Front, JDS, TDP
Anti-BJP: INC included Lead by Others Federal Front: (Karnataka Model): Potential Allies are: BSP, SP, TMC, DMK, RJD, NCP, Left Front, JDS, TDP
True Federal Front (All Non-Congress and Non-BJP)
BJP and PM Modi have wasted the full Majority given by
Indians after 30 years and have ended up scoring bigger self-goals and worked
more on Party Vikas than Vikas of People especially those at the bottom of the
pyramid. Course correction for India is to embrace Federalism with States
Growing in strength time to empower them to develop faster and Center focus on
Larger National Issues and Strategic Affairs of India.
మోదీ ఇకముందు కూడా ఇందుకు భిన్నంగా ఉండే అవకాశం లేదు. మళ్లీ అధికారంలోకి వచ్చినా ఆయన ధోరణి మారకపోవచ్చు. ఒకవేళ కాంగ్రెస్కు అధికారం ఇచ్చినా ఇదే పరిస్థితి. ఆ రెండు పార్టీలదీ ఉత్తరాది మనస్తత్వం. ఢిల్లీ కేంద్రక ఆలోచన. దక్షిణాది అంటే ఒక చిన్నచూపు. అందుకే అన్ని ప్రాంతాలు తమ అస్తిత్వాన్ని, ఆత్మగౌరవాన్ని చాటుకునే ఒక ఫెడరల్ నమూనా దేశ రాజకీయాలకు అవసరం. ఆ దిశగా తెలంగాణ ముఖ్యమంత్రి కె.చంద్రశేఖర్రావు చేస్తున్న ఆలోచన ఉత్తమమైనది. చంద్రబాబువి ఆసరా రాజకీయాలు. ఆయన ఎవరో ఒకరిపై ఆధారపడితే తప్ప రాష్ట్రంలో,రాజకీయాల్లో బతుకలేరు.
జాతీయపార్టీల కేంద్రీకృత అధికారం దేశానికి చేటు. గతంలో ఇందిరాగాంధీ, తాజాగా ప్రధాని నరేం ద్ర మోదీ నాయకత్వం ఆ విషయం బాగా రుజు వు చేసింది. ఆయన నిర్ణయాలు చేస్తున్న తీరు, వాటి తప్పొప్పులను సమీక్షించడానికి నిరాకరించే మొండితనం దేశానికి చాలా నష్టం చేస్తున్నాయి. పెద్ద నోట్ల రద్దు నిర్ణయం, జీఎస్టీ, పెట్రో ధరలకు స్వేచ్ఛ, నల్లధనం విషయంలో చేతులెత్తేయ డం, బ్యాంకు డిఫాల్టర్లను కట్టడి చేయకపోవడం, రాష్ర్టాల హక్కులను గౌరవించకపోవడం ఆయన లెక్కచేయనితనానికి తార్కాణా లు. ఇవన్నీ పదుగురితో చర్చించి తీసుకున్న నిర్ణయాలు కాదు. ఆయన, మరికొద్ది మంది దేశంపై రుద్దిన నిర్ణయాలు. బ్యాంకులు, కోర్టు లు, ఉన్నత విద్యావ్యవస్థలు, కేంద్ర దర్యాప్తు సంస్థలు, నిఘాసంస్థలు.. అన్నీ అనర్హులతో నిండిపోతున్నాయి. కేంద్రంలో బలమైన ప్రభుత్వం ఉండాలే తప్ప బలాదూర్గా వ్యవహరించే ప్రభుత్వం…
In about 3 Months India would get into Elections Mode and in 5 Months from now India would have Next Prime Minister.
Its going to be Watershed Elections in the History of India as it will Have Non-Congress and Non-BJP Parties winning more than Either BJP or Congress and Constitutionally Alliances before or after elections have no difference in Parliamentary democracy of India. Pre-poll alliances are the marriage of convenience to increase the winnability to take on the stronger political adversaries, they have no recognition whatsoever in the rules and regulations of the Election Commission of India.
Nitish Kumar Winning the election in Bihar in alliance with RJD and then Joining the opposition BJP to form Govt again is the best proof and Andhra Pradesh CM winning in alliance with BJP and quitting NDA and now joining Congress to fight the local stronger opposition and there are many more interesting examples of JDS in Karnataka, Shiv Sena in Maharashtra and the list goes on.
So this Exercise Treats any current ally of Congress and BJP also as Rest for there is nothing to stop them from joining with any other political party post-poll.
Clearly, India has no Presidential type election system and 2019 is certainly not going to be a quasi-presidential style that then PM candidate of BJP in 2014 could turn into in at least North and West of India.
2019 Elections is Clearly Going to be fought on Performance of Center and State Governments and Good Performance will be rewarded, Bad Performance will be punished and in case Average Performance its going to be a tighter contest where alternatives credibility and agenda and leadership will play a significant role.
My Prediction of Minimum and Maximum Seats of BJP, INC and Rest for General Elections 2019 in India Summary and Break up is :
UP (SP+BSP+RLD) alliance will take on BJP
Bihar (RJD+INC+Others) take on (BJP+JDU)
Karnataka (INC+JDS) take on BJP
Maharashtra (BJP+Sena) vs (INC+NCP)
BJP would stage strong come back for MP elections in Rajasthan and MP (as Congress Fails in its Jumla’s on Farmers as time is too short)
What are the Problems of Telangana State and What are TRS and KCR Solutions
Water Deficit Semi-Arid Region :
Mission Kakatiya – Low Hanging Fruit Completed
Mission Bhagiratha – In Completion Stage
Kaleshwaram – Highest Priority and Fastest Progress in Independent India and it will Change not Just Telangana but Shows the World the Best Government Intervention to Drive Poverty Out of Arid Water Deficit Regions by Lifting from Surplus Rivers
Palamuru Ranga Reddy – Very Good Plan to Choose Srisailam on Krishna as Source to Reduce Cost of Lifting and supplying on Sustainable Basis to Arid Rangareddy and Mahabub Nagar Districts which are yet to Receive Water thru Kalwakurthy – Most Central Clearances Received (Next Term Big Item)
Dindi – For Nalgonda – Re-design Completed and Clearances in Process (Next Term Major Item)
Seetha Rama for Khammam is Optimized Re-design in Process
TupakulagudemBarrage to Increase Capacity of Lifting from Devadula
Tummidi Hatti Barrage – Next Term Major Item for Adilabad
2. Welfare – Best Ever Performance by Any State Govt in Independent India (List is Long) My favorites are Asara Pension, KCR Kit
3. Making Farming Profitable
Rythu Bandhu – Bheema
24 Hr Free Power
Input Subsidies on Seeds etc
400% increase in Public Warehousing that Killed the Hoarding by Middlemen
4. Re-junevate Rural Economy and Job Creation
Subsidized Distribution of Sheep for Shepherds Making Over 1 Lakh Idle Shephards Bring Back to Productive Work who have accumulated 1,500 crore wealth in last 18 months
FREE distribution of Fish Seedlings in all Water Bodies have Made Over 1 Lakh Fishermen in each village become Productive and earn their Livelihood
Handlooms is another Major Rejuvenation with High Profile Promotion by the Minister KTR to elevate the Product, Industry and Artisans dignity
Good Begining curbing the Below Par Engineering Colleges run based on Fee Reimbursement Scam (Still a long way to Go)
Good Begining with a Large Number of Social Welfare Residential Schools but a Long long way to go particularly No good recruitment of Teachers into Public Schools
Higher Education has been Big Let down and Should Get immediate Priority of the Govt in Next Term
Good Begining but Long way to Go
Extending Kanti Velugu Initiative annouced is a step in the Right Direction
Major Hospitals like OUGH need Urgent Action
7. Employability of Youth
This would be Ultimate Challenge for the Govt in Next Term and a Must Resolve Item
Change Required in Both Youth ( Govt Job Mindset is Absolutely Wrong)
Change Required in Govt (Create Comprehensive Upgrade of Skilling and Connecting to Employment Opportunities, Unfortunately, Youth in State are neither Self Driven as in some enterprising states nor are Well Networked in the world)
I believe KCR and the Leadership is well aware of the State Priorities and is Working to a Plan and is aware of Non performance areas too and finally it would have to Make itself More inclusive Leadership involving larger Cross sections of Society
I Endorse KCR as CM and TRS Candidates for MLA’s in Telangana Elections.
I also wish to thank KTR Garu and Harish Rao Garu for Considering some of my Voluntary Suggestions for the development of Telangana.
Appeal to #VoteForCar on 7th December 2018
God Bless KCR and God Bless Telangana Jai Telangana, Jai Bharat
