ఇవ్వాళ.. కేసీఆర్ అంటున్నది కొత్తదేమీ కాదు. రాజ్యాంగబద్ధంగా సుప్రీంకోర్టు న్యాయసూత్రాలku అనుగుణంగా తెలంగాణలో ముల్కీ రూల్స్‌ను అమలు చేయాలంటున్నారు. ఇది తెలంగాణ ప్రభుత్వానికి ఉన్న హక్కు, ధర్మం కూడా. కేసీఆర్ ఒకవేళ అలా చేయక పోతే.. తెలంగాణ ప్రజలను మోసం చేసినవారవుతారు. ఈ సందర్భంలోనే చెప్పుకోవాలంటే.. తెలంగాణ ప్రజలు గత 60 ఏళ్లుగా ఈ ముల్కీ రూల్స్ అమలు కోసం, పెద్దమనుషుల ఒప్పందం అమలుకోసం పోరాడుతున్నారు. ఇప్పుడు ఈ ముల్కీ రూల్స్‌ను మరిచిపోవడమంటే.. తెలంగాణ రాష్ట్రం ఏర్పడటంలో అర్థం లేదు. మన రాష్ట్రంలో మన పాలనలో ముల్కీ రూల్స్‌ను పాటించడంలోనే మన విముక్తి ఉన్నది.

నాకు పీఎన్‌వీ నాయర్ అంటే అమిత గౌరవం. ‘హాన్స్ ఇండియా’ పత్రిక ఎడిటర్‌గా ఆయన వృత్తి నిబద్ధతగల జర్నలిస్టుగా, సుదీర్ఘ జీవితానుభవం ఉన్న జ్ఞానిగా విశిష్ట గౌరవ మర్యాదలున్నవారు. అయితే.. నేను ఈ వ్యాసంతో ఆయనకున్న జ్ఞానాన్నీ, వృత్తినిబద్ధతను సవాలు చేయడం లేదు. కానీ రెండు ఇరుగు పొరుగు రాష్ట్రాలుగా తెలంగాణ, ఆంధ్రవూపదేశ్ రాష్ట్రాలు, వాటి సంబంధాల విషయంలో తలెత్తుతున్న సమస్యలు, కొన్ని విషయాలను ఆయన దృష్టికి తేదల్చుకున్నాను. అయితే ఇక్కడే మరో విషయం కూడా స్పష్టం చేయాలి. నేను కేసీఆర్‌నో, తెలంగాణనో వెనకేసుకొస్తున్నాననుకోవద్దు. సహజ న్యాయసూత్రాల ఆధారంగా తెలంగాణ ప్రజలు, వారి తరఫున కేసీఆర్ కోరుతున్న లేదా అంటున్న విషయాలను విపులీకరించదల్చుకున్నాను.

ఇక్కడే మరో విషయం కూడా స్పష్టం…

Open Rebuttal to Mr P N V Nair Editorial in The Hans India

Dear Mr P N V Nair 

Editor, The Hans India

Greetings! I was one of admirer of The Hans India, HMTV and was looking for a neutral point of view in the politically biased media in the states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

Open letter to KCR

This editorial is a serious aberration in its intent and the post has grossly mislead the readers with a political agenda..

Misslead #1

Mr Rao, you are aware that one can migrate to countries like the US and get a Green Card within 10 years. Their children become American citizens by birth and can rise to any position. And within the country you are insisting on 60 years of residence proof for Statehood! The world has become so small and so near and you are trying to create a wedge between two peoples who talk the same language and eat the same food. “

Totally Irrelevant information, none of this is a State Subject. Visa and Citizenship are Central Subjects, India Citizen and Working Visa’s too are for India applies to anywhere in India, Hence the Question on your motive.

Misslead # 2

 “If I have got the estimates right, the fate of some 14 lakh students are at stake. A good percentage of students may have to even discontinue studies.” 

This is the biggest Injustice this Editorial has done to the Credibility and Intent, Has it not crossed your mind what this figure would imply and how much Hate this would create among Andhra Origin Telangana Residents all of a sudden towards Telangana and Telangana people?

I base my argument based on this national paper report in 2012

While there are over 3.20 lakh engineering seats, the number of students available for admissions is less than two lakh.

Read more at:

Even in the United Andhra Pradesh (ie AP + TS today) in 2012-2013 there are no more than 3.2 Lakh seats in engineering and actually no more than 2 Lakh qualified students, even if we assume medical and all other professional colleges put together assume another 1.5 Lakh seats with qualified students which itself on higher side! There are no more than 3.5 Lakh Qualified Students in both states together. ie around 0.4% of population every year in a state that is still to achieve 75% literacy !

If we set aside permanent injustice of 42% Telangana gets only 36% Searts as per OU (36%), AU (42%), SVU(22%) formula that Never Got Revised even though MP and MLA seats got revised !! and you never think this injustice needs editorial to ask Center to end this Injustice to Telangana.

To give you benefit of doubt I would even assume 50% of Qualified students are in Telangana

There are no more than 1.75 students in a Year and for average of 4 Years at maximum 7 Lakh Students in entire Telangana.

Among these Max 7 Lakh Students 50% of the students are under OC, And not even third of them will meet the EBC criteria

So Total Sum of students that may come under coverage of any scheme is no more than 4 Lakhs.

Are you suggesting There are no native Telangana students? All students coming from Andhra settled here and securing seats for you to term there is going be impact of not 4 Lakhs but 14 Lakhs Students!! Just a matter of adding one digit only for you !

Unless one sees the final Eligibility criteria, Its not even possible to estimate, how many Telangana residents who have made it their home in recent past not originally native of the land of Telangana

I will hazard a guess it will potentially consist at most

–      About max 50,000 Telangana Resident Parents, migrated after 1956 whose children are qualified yet can’t afford without financial assistance and I wish the case was made out for them in a very matured way of an appeal / recommendation / suggestion while framing the final rule, and I am sure not just me but many Telangana people will support their cause.

–      About max 50,000 Andhra Pradesh Resident parents whose children have been financed in the numerous Residential schools and calleges in GHMC and outside of Telangana, to study paying lakhs of rupees in these institutes and become eligible under Telangana quota, this is an unknown fact to you, and indirectly you are batting for these AP Tax Payer Parents to get financial assistance form Telangana Government, is it not? Those AP parents who could spend Lakhs to put their children in Costly Private Residential Institutes who indirectly deprive the local poor public college students of Telangana in the first place by snatching the seat also to be financed by tax payer money of Telangana while their families are AP tax payers !

* Above figures are for all 4 years put together not each year

The Question on the Intent of Alarming Figure and  argument Mr P N V Nair, actually justify why KCR need to protect native Telangana people as your number is so alarming, is it nor Sir?

Disturbing Quote

“Even at the height of Shiv Sena’s vandalism, only South Indians were targeted but not the Gujaratis. “

Is this not a Racist Line that does not befit an Editor?

There is no connection to a social welfare scheme and vandalism and to condone some and condemn some vandalism is unthinkable

 Wish you had Pointed Out Following in your editorial

  1. Government has to deploy its precious financial resources in Primary Public Education First as against Higher Education, and educated the Citizens how much is Govt spending on Primary and How much on Higher Education?
  2. Government should plug the scam in this scheme and make it productive to the state
  3. Highlight when a State has limited resources and has to prioritize it does need to give higher priority to citizens who lived longer and contributed to state for longer than shorted period of time and suggested a 10 Year residency of the parents as a reasonable on-going criteria and not get locked in fixed static year cut-off while framing policy and rule.

No pepper to spray away Lanco’s R36,558 crore debt burden

కట్టా మీఠా


ENS Economic Bureau | New Delhi | February 15, 2014 2:03 am

Lanco Group sacks 4,000 employees due to slowdow

The total debt sitting on the books of the company is Rs 36,558 crore and there is little chance of it melting soon as its revenue has dipped to Rs 458.54 crore at the end of December 2013 just 50 per cent of the figure for last year, at the same time.

Shares of Lagadapati Rajagopal’s Lanco Infratech, the holding company of the group, are now trading at 35 per cent discount to the book value at the BSE on Friday.

The market cap of the firm is down to Rs 1,565 crore as the company, which originated in Andhra Pradesh, has almost eaten through its net worth. The total debt sitting on the books of the company is Rs 36,558 crore and there is little chance of it melting…

న్యూస్ రూములను ఇంత కుంచిత, రోగగ్రస్థ, అథమ స్వభావం ఉన్న మనుషులు ఆక్రమించేశారా అనిపించింది. కనీస అవగాహన, పరిమితులు, విలువలు తెలియని మనుషులు ఎడిటర్లయ్యారా అనిపిస్తుంది.

మూడు రోజుల క్రితం ఒక అధికారి కలిసి చానెళ్ల పంచాయతీని పరిష్కరిస్తే మంచిదేమో అన్నారు. నిజమే…ఇంకా సాగదీయడం అనవసరం అనిపించింది. ప్రభుత్వానికి సంబంధం ఉన్నా లేకపోయినా అపవాదు వచ్చేది ప్రభుత్వానికే. ప్రభుత్వమే చొరవతీసుకుని ఒకసారి ఆపరేటర్లను పిలిచి చెబితే పరిష్కారమవుతుందనిపించింది. వాస్తవానికి ఆ చానెళ్ల ప్రసారాలు తిరిగి ప్రారంభించాలని తెలంగాణ సమాజం నుంచి డిమాండేమీ లేదు. పైగా పీడాపోయిందని సంతోషించే వాళ్లే ఎక్కువగా తారసపడుతున్నారు. ఎంఎస్‌ఓల ఆగ్రహం సమంజసమేనని వాదిస్తున్నవాళ్లు కూడా ఎక్కువే. కానీ ప్రజాస్వామ్యంలో పత్రికా స్వేచ్ఛ, సమాచార స్వేచ్ఛ, ప్రసార స్వేచ్ఛను ఎంతయినా అంగీకరించి తీరాలి. ఆ చానెళ్లు ప్రదర్శించే వంకరబుద్ధులను ప్రజలు సహించడం లేదు. తెలంగాణ సమాజానికి ఆ చైతన్యం వచ్చింది. తెలంగాణ ఉద్యమానికి వ్యతిరేకంగా, సమైక్యాంధ్రకోసం మద్దతుగా ఆ చానెళ్లు వేసిన వెర్రి మొర్రి వేషాలన్నీ ప్రజలకు తెలుసు. అయినా తెలంగాణ రాష్ట్ర ఏర్పాటును ఆపలేకపోయాయి. కేసీఆర్ జైత్రయాత్రను నిలువరించలేకపోయాయి. రేపయినా అదే జరుగుతుంది. శుక్రవారం నాడు సత్తుపల్లి నుంచి ఒక తెలంగాణవాది ఫోను చేశారు. ‘‘సార్. అక్కడ నిలిచిపోయిన చానెల్ ఒకటి ఇక్కడ వస్తున్నది. ‘కేసీఆర్‌ను తుగ్లక్ అని చంద్రబాబు విమర్శించడాన్ని మీరు సమర్థిస్తున్నారా?’ అని ప్రశ్న వేశారు. ఆ ప్రశ్నకు సమాధానంగా 54 శాతం మంది సబబే…

Decoding Godavari Breaching Papikondalu

Friends while I was trying to understand Polavaram National Project in all my sincerity to understand all the aspects as much as I can, I watched this beautiful master piece of

650 Million Years in under 2 minutes 

400 Million Years into Past and 150 Million Years into Future

My belief of “Adopt the Nature, not Challenge the Nature” further Got Reinforced and I went back to Google Earth to Study Godavari River and how it flows through Papikondalu trench of Eastern Ghats, reaches Polavaram Dam Site at the end of its long travel through the breach in Papikondalu for Over 40 Kilometers, in this long beautiful flow it’s width is actually is just about 300 Meters to 400 Meters width for almost 16 Kilometers, while it becomes mighty 6 KM Cotton Barrage at Rajahmandry ..

Polavaram Rock fill Earth Dam is currently designed to have Spill over of 754 Meter at 45.72 Meters.

Careful Analysis of the Eastern Ghats and the Altitudes, Godavari River appears to have had a Natural Alluvial Dam in the form of Papikondalu the Water level even if it reached 100 Meters this Dam could hold and the Water had no other way to reach Bay of Bengal other than breach of the Papikondalu a natural rock filled earthen alluvial dam

Clearly Before Ramyana this Natural Dam, may I call it Manyam Dam has Breached at the Point , considering that point receives highest water Pressure of this Manyam Dam!
Then the In-land River Godavari found its 300 meter narrow Breach to Discharge the Massive (potentially Few thousands of TMC ) Water into Bay of Bengal and then came Ramyana, Shabari, Ramadasu and Badrachalamu that is all a known History ..

Papikondalu Natural Dam and Godavari Breaching it to Reach Bay of BengalArea Marked Blue is Quite Conservative and is about 70 Meters only not the Manyam Reservoir Level of like 100 Meter where it would have breached the Papikondalu in Eastern Ghats..

Below actual Satellite Picture of 2006 Floods on River Godavari is recent Reality and is not the recent known worst flood disaster in 1986 on River Godavari.
2006 Godavari Floods without any Polavaram Barrage of Dam

Initially like Many, I was also probing the Angle of Safety of the Polavaram Dam

But above analysis gave me hint that Dam has Papikondalu and this Only 300 Meter Width (Natural Spill Over) acting as a Buffer Choking the Upstream flood water first, before the Dam Safety comes under threat. So in my opinion the first Threat is surely to people in entire Manyam area that includes entire Bhadrachalam Town and Badradri Sita Rama Temple that will face massive Back Flow, Back Water Surge as the Water Simply Can not pass through the Papikondalu Long Spill of just 300 Meter for 16 Kilometers..
It would devastate Entire Manyam Region before it can threaten Polavaram Dam itself..

Once again my respect and regard to the Great Andhra Engineer T.Hanumantha Rao Garu Engineer-in-Chief (Retired) Government of Andhra Pradesh, has gone up many folds and even after retirement he took pains to propose this alternative sensible Multi Barrage Design..

Unfortunately these words of wisdom were not headed to and the Dhanyagnam under Jalayagnam Chief Minister at that time went ahead and spent significant tax payer money and the foundation for the Dam is done

I would urge Govt of India to take a short pause and have best of the Experts from Dam, Flood Water specially Back Flow and Back Water Effect and the Dam Break Analysis under various flood conditions simulated by more than one party and establish the Optimal Dam Heights and other Alternatives to achieve Same level of Water Utilization with reduced impounding of water introducing significant risk and come up with revised plan that might include
1. Lowering the dam height to somewhere in the range of 30 to 35 Meters

2. Water Powered Pumping of Impounded Water to Both Canals at 40 Meter Height (this will make no Dead Stock all Stock into LIVE stock for both Hydal, Lift and Continuous feed to Cotton Barrage at Dawaleswaram

Water Powered Pump Unit the Way for India to Utilize River Water

3. Install upto 1000 MW Solar Plant using the saved money of R&R and Project construction

4. Mineral Resources Mapping in the Manyam area and potential impact at various water levels

5. Alternative Upstream Barrages and Small dams with Same WPP system on both Godavari and Sabari tributary

6. Total Social Cost that includes revised costs according to the Land acquistion act and tribal acts and the interest capitalization for this capital intensive national project

I am hoping and wishing our Prime Minister will look into all the aspects and make necessary and better changes to the #Polavaram Project and make India proud of it by adopting to the nature.

Jai Bharat

We are not against leaving godavari water to Andhra Pradesh.

Instead, a committee may be formed to discuss all these points and propose alternative designs as already suggested.

Taking Telagana land and utilizing it for Andhra project is it fair. Ignoring tribal people and also Badrachallam temple.

Please change the design

Archana Sonti Hyderabad 500048 India 2014/7/13 Andhra Pradesh has already built many small projects and getting enough water for their agriculture. This Project is been opposed by all top irrigation experts like including Top Andhra retired Engineer T.Hanumantharao and many Govt’s have not approved this project since ages because it creates more danger than peanut benefit. Even Chandra Babu Naidu has not approved this project in his 9 years rule in AP, as CM. This bill is only speaks the Ignorance of BJP Govt at Central, about the project. As a common citizen I know all these details and information, how come a Prime Minister is so ignorant of such dangerous project and pass the bill ? I wonder !!!
