Round Table to discuss measures for Safeguarding interests of all Telugus

The Foundation for Democratic Reforms (FDR) led by Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan is organizing a Round Table on the measures to be taken for safeguarding the interests of Telugu people and infusing confidence among them in the wake of the Center’s decision to form a separate Telangana State.

The Round Table will take place from 10-00 a.m. on Saturday, August 10 at Jubilee Hall in Public Gardens.

The FDR says that there is no point in blaming each other, resorting to acts of violence and indulging in interminable discussions on past events that fan animosities among Telugus in the wake of the Center’s decision to carve out a separate Telangana State.

“The immediate task before all political parties and the State and Central Governments is initiating specific measures to protect the interests of Telugu people in all the regions.”

Civil society leaders, legal experts, media luminaries, intellectuals and retired top officials with rich administrative experience are taking part in the non-partisan Round Table.

The Round Table will focus on arrangements to be made to ensure a sense of security among lakhs of people who have been living in Hyderabad and become part of it irrespective of the region of the State or nook of the country from which they came. It will discuss how the revenue from Hyderabad city should be shared by the two States and measures to be taken to ensure Hyderabad’s continued growth as a major economic and commercial center in the interests of all Telugu people.

The Round Table will discuss measures to promote economic growth in backward Rayalaseema, which will face the brunt of bifurcation, and other backward areas including north Coastal Andhra.

The Round Table will discuss location of a new capital for the residual State of Andhra Pradesh and precautions to be taken to prevent economic and political centralization in it.


  1. If Sonia ji has rights to stay in India..We/our telugu people has equal rights to stay at Hyderabad... think once... countries like USA, Australia, etc are giving citizenship rights-Green cards, voting rights, etc for the immigrants manpower who participated in their National Development...think once.........Before any such decision/justice, one has to know the three regions year wise TAXes contribution in Hyderabad Development, subsidies to Industries, Infrastructure etc..... First Some body has to file RTI to seek information of 1).The year wise Direct-Taxes/Indirect Taxes received by Central Govt & State Govt from s0.01-11-1956 to 31-03-1991 b).from 1991 to 2004 c)from 2004 to present 2).The year wise profit/development/revenue share of three regions & Hyderabad in proportionate to their Taxes contribution in previousyears, 3). The year wise expenditure/contribution to a) three regions of AP state b) Hyderabad city C) Direct Subsidies to Industries of AP, region wise d) Contribution to Central Govt of India...

    Capital at only one place is not acceptable to all, a lesson learnt from past... Also the issues like future target development in other regions also should be considered... So, I propose the following... a). Kurnool is capital for 5 months b) Vizag is capital for 5 months c). And during Brahmotsavams at Tirupati,
    Tirupati is capital for one month d). and during Dasara Navarathri Brahmotsavams, a new township b/n Bejawada and Guntur is capital for one month... Additional Future Targets for Development at below places should be considered: 1.There is one desert like area in Anantapur District, and this should be used for Township for Textile Industry. 2. Also the SEZ: SRi city SEZ, which is between Nellore and Chittoor District is one that we should promise for future targets, in which it is near to chennai city and Krishnapatnam port. 3. The vast area at prakasam dist, may also be set for future SEZ devolopment, since it is near to Krishnapatnam port, also in Chennai and Vijayawada highway etc.. 4. The present Vizag Industrial Infrastructure should also be set some future target for development, 5. The present Guntur, EG, WG etc are to be encouraged for Food processing Industries,Agro-based Industries... 6.Also the agriculture Infrastructure in coastal Andhra should be set some targets....

    Dear all... who will give that money at instant,, Do you think central govt will give or the separating state Telangana Govt will give... also one point... the 1 lakh money during 1998 will be more value than todays 1 lakh,,, money is not ideal thing our money is invested in Hyd development,, we need interest to our money at the rate defined by GDP of AP/India/Hyderabad region, Inflation in Raw materials etc of corresponding year wise statistics.........I think the solution acceptable to all Telugu people(not in terms of sentiment, but economical point of view) is: calculate all the money/revenue share of three regions based on above method. And keep Hyd as union territory for some 10 years, and spend that money in other two regions (Coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema), also protect Residential Ship rights at Hyderabad for immigrants as equivalent to other people from rest of India,,, But we can protect Residential ship rights of all Telugu people by keeping Hyd as permanent Union Territory only.. ..On the other hand during the journey from 01-11-1956 to present, we got lot of sentiments/attachment with Hyderabad, Warangal, Bhadrachalam etc...

  2. Would you please share the notes of this discussion.
