Respected Madam speaker and esteemed members of the Lok Sabha,
We the Citizens of India accepted the argument put forth by our elected representatives that protesting inside the Parliament and Assembly premises and not allowing the function of the Lok Sabha, the Rajya Sabha and the State Assemblies, is also a form of expressing dissatisfaction against the executive’s functioning. But, seeing our legislators resorting to such tactics to sabotage the passage of the Telangana demerger bill has shamed the people of Telangana and India and we cannot remain silent any longer. It is not everyday that a common citizen is forced to write to his/her representatives and law makers reminding them of their oath of office. I am saddened at being forced to write to my MP’s of the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha, asking them to be true to the Constitution of India, and allow both the houses of Parliament to function as required by law, and successfully clear the passage of the Telangana bill.
The future of a tenth of India’s population namely the people of Telangana is in your hands, it is within your power to either deliver the long denied justice to the people of Telangana or fall prey to the machinations and moneybag persuasion of the Seemandhra mafia. After more than a half a century of strife and struggle, and the pain of losing thousands of our youth first to the bullets of Brahmanand Reddy Government and most recently to the callous disregard of Kiran Kumar Reddy, Chief of the Seemandhra mafia, Telangana is poised to see the dawn of freedom which was snatched by unconstitutional methods in 1956. None can deny that the people of Telangana have been systematically exploited and impoverished by successive Andhra Governments, innumerable committees and commissions have stated adnauseum that Telangana has been denied justice. leaders of all political parties in India, right from NTR, Deve Gowda PM of India, Rajiv Gandhi and also LK Advani, hve expressed similar views and promised to deliver justice to Telangana.
Finally, today when you have the chance of setting right the injustices done to the people of Telangana, do not let it go in waste. Please rise above petty political one-upmanship and show to the world that we may differ on ideology and principles but when it comes to delivering justice and meeting the just demands of its Citizens we can and will rise above politics. The voices of dissent against this are very strident and very powerful, no less a person than the former Chief Minister of AP, who is today the protoganist in chief of the Seema Andhra Mafia, is leading the charge against the hapless people of Telangana, and the only protection we have against this powerful oppressor is your conscience and the oath you have taken to uphold the constitution of India.
Where Telangana is concerned, the Constition of India has been violated each and every time, right from the unconstitutional and forcible merger of Hyderabad state with the Andhra state to the attempted rejection of the T bill in the AP Assembly on 30th January, 2014. The forcible merger Hyderabad state with the Andhra state was in violation of due constitutional procedures. The Constitutional process was neither followed then nor in the farce of an Assembly discussion now, Kiran Kumar Reddy and his henchmen in the Assembly have disgraced Constitution and procedures laid down for conducting the business of the Assembly. The guerilla tactics employed by the Kiran Kumar Reddy in rejecting the T Reorganisation bill, reeks of a back street brawl and is a flagrant disregard of Consitutional processes. The Rules of Business clearly state that a resolution needs an advance notice of ten days, and cannot be moved with no prior notice to the members of the Assembly, this act of Kiran Kumar in which the Speaker was also hand in glove, is an insult to the people of Telangana and Andhra, in depriving our representatives a chance of think over the resolution and be present to vote on the same, Kiran Kumar has insulted both the Constitution and people of India.
The sole voice of dissent against the passage of the Telangana bill, is the corrupt political and land mafia which has been bank rolling the anti Telangana lobby. I would like to bring to your notice, the reasons why people like Kiran Kumar Reddy, Chanda Babu Naidu, Jagan Mohan Reddy, Lagdapati and the kingpin of the anti Telangana lobby T Subbi Rami Reddy are against the formation of Telangana. Since he was elevated from the ranks of the inconspicuous MLA’s to the post of Chief Minister of AP, Kiran Kumar Reddy has been on a money making spree, to give an example in Kiran Kumar Reddy within months of being made Chief Minister, though GO 293, approved the change in land use of 33 acres of land in Janwada village in Shankarapally mandal in Ranga Reddy district into residential use zone, against the advise of Experts, earlier GO’s and the Court oders. This Government Order was against GO 111 issued in March 1996 which clearly states that no developmental activity can take place in the catchment areas of the lake bed of Osmansagar and Himayatsagar water bodies, the main source of drinking water for the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. According to the grapewine in the political and real estate circles, Kiran Kumar Reddy issued the GO 293 at the behest of his close family. And today the Real Estate section in the newspapers of Hyderabad is flooded with advertisements for residential apartments and villas in Janwada. It is the fear of having his misdeeds being made public and reversal of such heinous decisions which have imperiled the existence of drinking water sources, that is root cause of Kiran Kumar’s voice against Telangana.
The unholy nexus between Chandra Babu Naidu and the Chairman of the erstwhile Satyam Computer Services Ltd, Rama Linga Raju is known to all. Both Raju and Naidu have cornered huge tracts of land in the areas marked for expansion of GHMC limits. Not only that Naidu had during his tenure as the CM of AP, gifted large tracts of land for developing IT industry to his friends and cronies, most of which have been used for developing residential and commercial buildings. It is the fear of having these come to light and the benami lands he and his family have acquired along with his friend Ramalinga Raju, that is the prime motivator of Naidu’s opposition to Telangana state. Not only that, Naidu to promote his diary Unit Heritage, has undermined the performance of the APDDC diary units, so much so that almost all the top Management and technical posts in Heritage are from the APDDC.
Now we come to Jagan Mohan Reddy, the less said about him the better. The cases against him and too long to be penned here.
Lagdapati like Rama Linga Raju and several others prospered under the politician and land mafia nexus of Naidu and later YSR, Jagan Mohan Reddy’s father. His company’s biggest project in Hyderabad Lanco Hills, is being built on Wakf land, it is the fear of having these illegal projects questioned and scrapped that is his fueling his opposition to Telangana.
T Subbi Rami Reddy, made his fortune as a contractor for the construction of Nagarjuna Sagar. , He is the most influential and the prime mover and shaker, stage managing the Anti Telangana lobby from behind the curtains. Whether it is road construction, building Government offices, or providing Security to any small or large Government office or Exhibition, any and every work the Government of AP has allotted in the last 50 years, TSR’s Gayatri group a piece of the Government’s pie has gone into the coffers of TSR and Gayatri group.
So esteemed members of Parliament the fight for Telangana is between the hapless Telangana people and the land mafia and the Government contractor lobby which is opposed to releasing its death grip on the prey ie Telangana. Today we the people of Telangana bessech you listen to your conscience and deliver to Telangana a state that was snactched from them. The people of Telangana ask just one thing of you, please set aside your differences for a day and release Telangana from half a century of oppression and exploitation. We the people of Telangana ask that you deliver us from this misery, for to leave the issue pending now is to prolong the agony of an already much abused and exploited people.
You are today at the cross roads of history and the decision you take today will either bring prosperity and plenty to Telangana or plunge it into the depths of gloom and despair, which will prove a fertile ground for anti national elements to prey upon. So listen to your conscience and the cry of 12 crore Indians and say along with us Jai Telangana, the 29th state of India.
Telangana Praja Samithi
