Total loss of water share of Telangana merging with
Andhra is 1125 TMC.
With estimation of 1 TMC to serve 10,000 acres, total
cultivation land Telangana lost is 11, 25,000 acres.
There are 10 districts in Telangana, 9 in Andhra, 4
Out of these 7
districts in Telangana, 3 in Andhra and 1 in Rayalaseema are
considered severely backward districts which means 70% of
districts in Telangana are backward while in Andhra - 35%
and in Rayalaseema - 25%

Pothireddypadu regulator was originally created for
drinking water to Chennai
with 5 TMC. Gradually 5 projects were ‘piggy backed’
& augmented to canal.In the name of Chennai drinking water,
Rayalaseema leaders wanted to take
away the entire waters of Srisailam reservoir.
Veligonda project is being constructed on war footing
basis. This will drain 60 TMC of water from Srisailam. This project is not allotted
(water share by tribunal) and do
have clearance till now.
Handrineeva Srujana Sravanthi, not allotted not
cleared project is going on war footing now. It will run
through chittoor via Anantapur. 12) SLBC -
Srisailam Left Bank Canal, despite of all
recommendations, Clearances and permissions never started.
This would have provided 30 TMC for 3 Lakh acres in Nalgonda
Manuguru thermal power station proposed by Central
govt due to proximity of coal
mines was lobbied to be shifted to Vijayawada,
transporting coal from telangana (singareni). This led to
shortage of power due to pump set usage by Telangana
Ramagundam super thermal power station (2500 MW) transferred
to NTPC, crippling
power ownership of state by which we get only 27% of power
produced and rest is pooled in national grid.
Dummugudem Hydal power station never even started
construction – this
remained a promise on paper.
Icchampalli power (975 MW) project never started.
regulatory mechanisms – 220 KV, 132 KV, 32 KV substations
and lines never
realized in Telangana region.

is not a free-zone, Delhi is not a freezone, Kolkatta is not
a freezone, Chennai is not a freezone, Pune is not a

All APSEB scams occurred so far at high level in board are
Telangana power supply and distribution, never to
Andhra or Rayalaseema region.Higher officials found guilty

Technically it is possible to develop water grid to benefit
Telangana, Rayalaseema and Andhra regions – it would match
in comparison with Mississippi river water
Three Gorges river system (China), Nile river (Aswan dam)
Africa and Rhine
river system Europe. Similar models were conceived by
intellectuals but are trashed by Andhra rulers and pseudo
intellectuals because they will benefit Telangana.
1969 - after Jai Telangana movement 'All Party Accord' was
formulated, scrapped within 6 months. Than 8-point formula,
5-point formula were announced. then
supreme court upheld Mulki rules. Andhra elites could
not digest it, launched Jai
Andhra movement. Central govt., yielded as usual to
elites tactics, then 6-point
formula. Even this is being violated royally many
times, robbing Telangana its rightfulness.
Nagarjuna Sagar initially meant to benefit Andhra and Telangana.
Later on it is modified in such a way that 75% of the
benefit is accruing to Andhra reducing the share of
Telangana region to just 25%. Andhra settlers own 50% of
these 25% utilization lands.
Singur project was originally designed to meet primarily the
irrigation needs of
Medak and Nizamabad districts. But it is now solely
used for meeting the requirements of capital city.
Jurala Project which is the first project on river Krishna meant
for Telangana, is the
smallest of all the projects built on this river. The
Bachawat Tribunal allocated just 17.5 TMC ft. water for this
project, and the state government
reduced its storage capacity
to 60% ft. But the actual utilization so far has not been
more than 10%
Rajolibanda Diversion Scheme was to irrigate 87500 acres in
Bachawat Tribunal also allocated 15.90 TMC ft. of
water for this project. This water has to pass through a
canal in Raichur district of Karnataka State. After the

then Govt., never even tried to reconstruct the gates.
Devadula Project, provides water for 5 lakh acres, was promised

Telangana people are supposed to believe the promise.
Two major projects proposed on river Godavari are Ichampally and
Ichampally is meant for Telangana and Polavaram for Andhra.
The irrigation potential of Polavaram Project would
be 6 to 7 times more than the irrigation potential of
Ichampally. Ichampally is going to be primarily a
power project not a irrigation project !

payer’s money. Andhra
farmer pays Rs 200 - 300 per annum as water charges.

milk chilling plants established by the erstwhile Telangana
Committee in different parts of Telangana have been abruptly
closed down showing lack of funds as a reason.
87) Ramagundam is in heart
of coal belt … Fertilizer plant is closed showing a reason
as poor quality of coal. NTPC is running with same coal,
VTPS is running with same coal. Subsequently, Fertilizer
plants are started in Nellore and Andhra.
88) Based on
the proportionality at least 40% of jobs, i.e. 6 lakhs,

89) 1972, PV
Narasimha Rao made an attempt to implement the verdict of
Supreme Court validating the Mulki Rules. The verdict was in
favor of Telangana. Seemandhra gave outrageous reaction, he
lost his Chief Ministership.
90) If it is
assumed that the leaders of a region becoming chief
ministers can contribute to
the development of that region, then why do the
people of Rayalaseema complain of backwardness ?
wage workers working in industries – from Andhra (9
districts) 3.16 lakhs,from Rayalaseema (4 districts)– 0.7
lakhs, Telangana (10 district) 0.81 lakhs.
Andhra controlled media never highlighted migration of 15 lakh
people out of 24lakh
population from Mahabubnagar due to draught
Anjaiah CM of AP from Telangana region was presented as a
buffoon in dailies and cartoons.
At the time of merger Andhra leaders persuaded Telangana leaders
by offering many
safeguards against exploitation. They also passed a
Unanimous Resolution’ in November 1955 in Andhra Assembly in support of
safeguards and subsequently they
put these safeguards in an Agreement on 20th
February. 1956 which is known as
“Gentlemen’s Agreement”. All are trashed soon after
the agreement is signed.
94) Proportional representation says Telangana should get 42% jobs
Secretariat, but only 9% are working now. How can a
people representative, MLA, MLC can get a work done if 91%
do not help ?
Rail project is being designed dilapidating 5000 shops, 2500
houses, 147 schools, 120 hospitals, 60 Temples/Masjid/Churches.

India got Independence. 1948 Indian Army did police action
to dethrone Nizam.
Hyderabad state existed from 1949 to 1956. Telangana
merged with Andhra against
its wishes in1956. Telangana has nothing to do with
Telangana Sayudha Poratam, (Telangana armed struggle) was
against Nizam facist
rule, 4000 people died - inspired all subsequent land
movements in West Bengal, Kerala and Tripura and paved way
for formation of
Communist governments in those States. This is never
acknowledged by Seemandhra rulers so far.

Uttaranchal 6.8% - 8.8%
Since 1956 to
date, the additional irrigation potential created in
Telangana Is only 5%
102) There are 10,000+ Industrial units in Telangana, 1200 are owned
by Telanganites, 6500 are owned by Seemandhra, rest are by
Proportionally Telangana should be given about 43% in
budget allocation, Since
1953, it never exceeded 30%. Yet Telangana
contributes 42% of revenue to the state
built in 1931 to serve Nizamabad and Medak about 2.7
lakh acres of
land. It was neglected for maintenance and
improvements, now satellite images prove that all its 83
tributaries, 243 distributaries have been silted up and
eroded. World Bank sanctioned 30 crores for the project, which was never spent.
The project now
going to be almost useless.
In Andhra region
every year two crops are cultivated because of water
Telangana a single crop will be cultivated with great
difficulty. 106) Technical institutions wise, 26 are in
Telangana, 54 are in Andhra. 20 polytechnics in Telangana,
70 in Andhra. 2 Medical colleges in Telangana, 6 in Andhra.
Railways, Administrative Services, Post and Telegraph,
installed democratic institutions, judiciary, rule of law,
and built the cities of Kolkata, Mumbai
Chennai, and New Delhi. British did not claim any of these
when they had to leave India. Seemandhra are making big hue
clamoring for Hyderabad
claiming they have built the city. In 400 yrs of
Hyderabad history, how many years did they contribute the
- demographic expansion can never be considered as a
development. It’s natural growth. It is like a girl who is
10 yrs now will attain 15yrs of age after 5 yrs –
can we call it development ? Also, its not just
Hyderabad which is developed … all big/medium cities in
India are in development path.
