Unreasonable Andhra Expectations !

It’s now over one year since #Telangana statehood has been granted by Indian parliament

I wished by now most of the Rational issues will remain and unreasonable expectations would go..

While reconciling to the reality of separate Telangana state has almost happened

Below Unreasonable Expectations are still haunting the minds of People and Government of Andhra Pradesh

1. Water Sharing : Desire to have continuity of diversion of Telangana’s rightful share of Waters by any means

2. Special Status to the State : Knowing very well this is not part of the act nor does the state qualify as per the criteria, nor is it panacea to solve any problems of the state that are largely its own creation

3. To continue to think and spend like state of 42 MP’s

4. To expect Center to fulfill deficits deliberately created by wasteful expenditure and freebies

5. To expect Center to do anything it wishes without any consideration to the federal structure of India in which it is one of the 29 equal states under constitution of India


Curious Questions to AP CM on #Krishnapatnam & #Hinduja #Power

AP Chief Minister Press Conference on 9th October 2014 in Hyderabad

[ 1:55~ 2:36 ] You declared both #Hinduja and #Krishnapatnam Power Plants Signed PPA (Power Purchase Agreements ) with the 4 DISCOMS of the Undevided Andhra Pradesh as Invalid and Illegal , reason cited is the process of APERC formality was not completed !Krishnapatnam Reached 800 MW on 28th Aug 2014 but is running at 300 MW in October and this according to you is normal for a Project that was commissioned on 31st March 2014

Dear CM Garu

  • Are you suggesting Private investor Hinduja and 50% Partner IL&FS in #Krishnapatnam, Power Finance Corporations have funded these projects that are under excution for over 6 years now have financed based on invalid and illegal Power Purchase Agreement that amounts to Banking Fraud and Insane are Private Investors to have such RISK exposure
  • Are you not aware all 4 DISCOMS are LICENSORS of APERC and everything they sign has deemed approval of APERC and Licensors are only required to Submit for records to APERC and is a mere formality that can never ever be the basis to question the validity of the agreement itself.  If the PPA was with non Licensors what you said is absolutely true but you have intentionally mislead people of both states, Prove me wrong if you can.
  • As the touted Tech Savvy CEO Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, How do you explain the plant even after another 125 Days since your press conference is Producing ZERO Power today and by now both units of 800 MW should be operational and its operated by your own entity APGENCO and the total investment of 8,500 Crore is spent in to this plant,  Is there any review , record of the status of this Project for the benefit of Citizens of Andhra Pradesh and India ?
  • What sort of Techie are you  when there is no such precedence ever, where a newly commissioned 800 MW Thermal Project is not Working for Over 10 Months now and no power production disclosure is being done by APGENCO

On the contrary, it appears the Commissioning of 800 MW plant is also completed as tweeted by the EPC Contractors of the Plant

Why there is no sense of urgency with you, or the ministers or the media in Andhra Pradesh about this Project where you can Save the enormous amount of Money being spent on Purchase of Power from outside with Over Rs 5 per unit as you told in the Press Conference and also start having returns on Andhra Pradesh Investments of Rs 8,500 crores interest on the Debt has to paid and at least Rs 2 Crores Interest Burden is Mounting Every Day on this Project, with non operation Only interest Burden with ZERO revenue for 10 months Over 600 Crores

How much money is to be spent to keep the Coal Stocks, Employees, Repairs and what not will not be less than another 500 Crores, Over 1000 Crores is Sunk on top of 8,500 Crores in #Krishnapatnam and yet there is no sense of Urgency and you say its Normal ?

Pity on the Citizens of Andhra Pradesh who have BLIND faith in you, whether you share Power to Telangana is Secondary, By Shutting the Power Plant for Over 10 months for Unknown and Unexplained reasons, you have not only done Self destruction for the state of Andhra Pradesh in addition to your vengeance attitude toward State of Telangana that is known to even children in the State you have done damage to the National Economy.

It’s really shame neither Central Government, nor Media have done Justice to their role and have been part of your economic Crime on the State(s) and Nation..

Sooner you shun the intent to sabotage state of Telangana  with power blockade the better your chances to succeed even in your own state of Andhra Pradesh

May God give you wisdom to shun this non transparent manipulative approach that hides more than it reveals

AAP should look at Andhra Pradesh for the debut in South

AAP has Won Delhi, with a Tsunami of Popular Mandate

AAP has established itself in Punjab

In my view the reasons lie in both places both Congresss and NDA have failed to meet the basic expectations of ordinary people while they were doing a lot to the privileged sections and achieving the Economic Growth for the states as such along with the Growth in rampant Corruption

AAP must test and validate all their thoughts and governance models in Delhi and use their success in Punjab from parliament to learn how to work effectively with Center and prepare for upcoming elections in Punjab and present themselves as clear alternative with friction between ruling alliance partners BJP and Akalidal is same as what the BJP delhi unit leadership internal fight more than fight for the good of people.

I would recommend AAP to pick up Andhra Pradesh State to make their debut in South for following reasons

  1. Andhra Pradesh People are Yawning for Credible and inclusive alternate that shifts the politics away from Caste and Communal polarization
  2. Cronie Capitalist Media blindly siding with one side of the political spectrum
  3. Rampant Cronie Capitalism in the state
  4. Current Government has circumvented the Land Acquisition Act by using clever twist of of vocabulary and calling it as Land Pooling and enacting CRDA (Capiral Regional Development Authority ) act, this in essence is nullifying  Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013
  5. AP State Govt has been able to use its influence in the new Central Govt and got the Act amended thru Ordinance to pre-empt potential litigations
  6. In spite of all efforts by State Govt so far almost half the farmers have not agreed to forego the 30,000 acres that State Govt intends to acquire in the name of pooling for CRDA.

What AAP needs to do is to stand by the farmers and ensure both Center and State abide by the Central Law and not circumvent by any state law, meaning wherever state law is contradicting central law must prevail and citizens must have recourse to take shelter under the Central Law.

Mobilize national support to prevent the Ordinance being passed in Parliament when it comes up for discussion and voting.

There is Huge Political Vacuum of neutral Vote Bank that is not comfortable with

1. Community and Cronie Capitalist TDP that has total control of Media and Tollywood to sell dreams and mislead people just before voting and forget for next 5 years

2. Congress that has made itself redundant in the state

3. Political Novice, dynastic More a Cronie capitalist Businessmen than a grass root politician lead YSRCP

4. BJP that has been prevented by its Parliamentary Board Memeber and Union Cabinet Minister who is more a TDP person in the state than BJP, does not let it expand

Almost Entire OBC and Weaker Sections Vote and Even some OC Community are looking for a new viable political alternative.

Its Politically Ripe Timing and Place for AAP to target and please do not consider Lok Satta Party due to its leader Mr Nagabairava Jayaprakash Narayana, simply barters all the work of entire party workers to strike back door deal with the main party particularly very close to TDP from the time of NTR.

While I would not rule out Most of the LSP coder walking out to join AAP in Andhra Pradesh.

However, AAP should not repeat its mistake of going to all states take gradual approach as experience to test the models is essential for political parties long term survival and credibility.

This is purely my personal view.

Jai Bharat

Andhra is becoming Synonymous with Abaddam (LIE) ! #Krishnapatnam

APGENCO is entrusted to Setup and operate Sri Damodaram Sanjeevaiah Thermal Power Station of 2×800 MW Thermal Power Plants.

In March 2014 first Unit is commissioned

The first unit of 800 mw (2×800 mw) of Sri Damodaram Sanjeevaiah Thermal Power Station in Krishnapatnam has been synchronised with the Power Grid late on March 31.

This project being executed by AP Genco is expected to partly ease up the demand supply situation in the State. It is expected to generate 38 million units per day once both the 800 mw units get commissioned.

second unit is expected to be commissioned by July 2014 !

Efficiency of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and APGENCO or shall I say their desire to activate their friends Gas Power Plants as Return Gifts for their support in 2014 elections in violation of Natural Gas Allocation norms and priorities by influencing the inexperienced new ministers in the central Government and desire to make APGENCO, APTRANSCO and Telangana Suffer Financially, Economically and artificially create situation where both states buy power at high price.

By now any efficient AP CM would have made sure full 38 MU power is produced at this facility and supply it to make both AP and Telangana 24 Hr Power Supply as it fills any deficit in summer and make APGENCO earn additional revenue of atleast Rs 12 crores

Instead it plays havoc with all parties and fudges all numbers and misleads all parties including Central Government and all agencies and is adamant in misintepreting laws and inturn has put the credibility and trust worthiness of Brand Andhra on the line for narrow interest

It still can’t continue to force contractors to deliberately delay with frivilous reasons for their investments and paymets get affected, no contractor can put up with 11 months such wanten delays by Government itself, this

tweet by Alstom India  is a clear evidence this Power Plant technically has no problem all problems are primarily politicall ill will of the chief minister of Andhra Pradesh who is on record refusing to consider, Power Purchase Agreement as valid citing frivilous reasons, as no Power Plant Financial Closure is done without Signed Power Purchase Agreement

In this case Both APGENCO and APTRANSCO are Licensors what they sign has deemed approval of APERC, explicit approval is a procedure and its timing does not change the existence and fundamental validity of PPA itself.

AP Re-organization has made it binding for both states to share the power from all existing and on-going projects, AP CM attempt to shift the goal post to PPA in first place then trivial formality of APERC approval then dimissing APERC and then delaying or hiding the power produced from #Krishnapatnam.

I am convinced AP CM Sri Nara Chandra Babu Naidu is an A Class Crook who is Master of fudging numbers, and against public sector enterprises and he is a BIG Shani for Telangana State and God Knows how does he serve AP when he is wasting enormous investment into this massive power plant where the State enterprise can earn atleast Rs 5 to 10 crore operational profit every day ..

Instead he is driving the state artificially and intentionally into  bankruptcy.

APGENCO does not list this Power Plant still !

APTRANCO shows much less power as against what APGENCO publishes

Feb 6th APGENCO reports  62.12 MU  while APTRANSCO report only 56.697 MU

Inconsistency and Fudging and Crook Governance has become the way Brand Andhra will be come to be known !

People of Andhra Pradesh need to wake up and send strong message to their Government to mend the ways, else Telangana may suffer temporarily the long-term damage to Brand Andhra and to the State of Andhra Pradesh is enormous

So far I must say deeply disappointed by the partisan and irresponsible role played by the Central Power Minister Sri Piyush Goyal and the Role played by the Prime Minister Sri Narendra Modi Govt is a very Bad Precedent for the Federal structure of India
