JFC gets ready for long battle



Pawan Kalyan warns of unrest in AP

Hyderabad: Actor-turned politician and Jana Sena founder Pawan Kalyan asked the Central Government to fulfill the promises made to Andhra Pradesh at the time of bifurcation, failing which there could be unrest among the people, which would go against the interests of the country.

“It is the duty of the government to fulfil the assurances made in the Parliament. The government’s failure to fulfill its assurances has the potential to fuel separatist movements among the people,” he said. The Jana Sena founder convened a meeting of intellectuals, retired officials and political party representatives that formed a Joint Fact Finding Committee (JFC) to study the promises made to the successor State of AP and the status of their implementation.

Lok Satta founder Jayaprakash Narayan, CPI (M) leader P. Madhu, CPI representative K. Ramakrishna, Congress representative Gidugu Rudraraju and former AP Chief Secretary I.Y.R. Krishna Rao were among those who attended the meeting. The meeting decided to constitute a sub-committee headed by retired bureaucrats M. Padmanabhaiah, Mr. Krishna Rao and T. Chandrasekhar to study the implementation of the promises made to the State and present a report. In the study, the sub-committee would look into aspects like fiscal deficit, status of backward regions, tax concessions, institutions, basic infrastructure, special category status/special package, funds for the construction of the capital and exclusive railway zone for AP post bifurcation.

Mr. Pawan Kalyan later said one of the prime reasons behind his entry into politics was the ‘injustice’ done to AP through the “unscientific” bifurcation.

He announced that JFC would continue to meet. It was decided to constitute sub-committees of experts on each issue for finalising the course of action to be adopted to mount pressure on the Centre to fulfil its assurances. “This is just the beginning and the exercise will continue till the State gets its due,” he said. Mr. Jayaprakash Narayan said the JFC would finalise its course of action after the committee of retired bureaucrats submits its report. “People will lose confidence in democracy if the assurances made by the Prime Minister in the Parliament are not implemented,” he said.

Meanwhile, the JFC filed an RTI application at the Centre seeking to know the promises made by the government in Parliament during bifurcation of the State and the progress of their implementation.

Pawan, JP discuss JAC proposal


Pawan ropes in JP to pressure Centre


Concrete plan mooted to implement promises

Hyderabad: Jana Sena founder Pawan Kalyan called on Lok Satta founder Jayaprakash Narayan here on Thursday to discuss the promises made in Parliament at the time of bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh and the status of their implementation.

This development came a day after the actor-turned-politician announced his intentions to create a platform for bringing together a group of organisations and individuals to fight for fulfilment of promises.

Speaking to the press after the meeting, he said given its past track record, there was hope that the BJP government would work to implement promises made to AP at the time of bifurcation. Mr. Pawan Kalyan expressed concern over the contradictory statements being made on these promises.

He said that the meeting with Mr. Narayan marked the beginning of a process to forge a platform to mount pressure on the Centre. “It can be a joint action committee, think tank or a strategic group. It will evolve ways and means to represent the aspirations of the people,” he said.

Asked why there was delay in finalising the course of action for ensuring fulfilment of promises made more than three years ago, he said it was a sensitive issue related to the interests of the people.
“We have initiated the process for bringing together all the stakeholders and we will evolve steps to take the struggle forward,” he said.

Mr. Narayan said that while AP was assured a package on the lines of Bundelkhand at the time of bifurcation. Assessments had projected that the Centre would provide about ₹10,000 crore in assistance to the State. “The promises on tax exemptions too were not implemented, but given to other States with a changed terminology called additional budgetary support,” he said, alleging that the government was going by the technicalities, which in turn denied benefits assured to the State.

Mr. Pawan Kalyan said he would continue meeting like-minded people in the coming days for evolving a concrete plan and put pressure on the Centre.
