TELANGANA STATE HISTORY:
Telangana State was once a part of the Hyderabad state which got merged into the Indian Union on 17 September 1948. In 1950, M K Vellodi was elected as the first chief minister of Hyderabad state and in 1952; Burgula Ramakrishna Rao was elected as the chief minister of Hyderabad state. He supported the proposal for amalgamation of Hyderabad state with Andhra state. This proposal came up in 1953. On 1 November 1956, Telugu-speaking areas of Hyderabad state were merged with Andhra state. The city of Hyderabad was made the capital of Andhra Pradesh state. However, in 1969, agitation began in the Telangana region which was intensified and turned violent with students at the forefront of the struggle. As a counter to the Telangana struggle, the Jai Andhra movement started in the Andhra-Rayalaseema regions. In 1985, employees from Telangana region were deprived of jobs in government departments.
A government order was passed by N T Rama Rao, leader of Telugu Desam Party government to safeguard the interests of Telangana people in government employment. Till 1999, there was no demand for division of the state from any part of the state but in 1999, Congress demanded the creation of Telangana state. Also, Kalvakuntla Chandrasekhar Rao launched Telangana Rashtra Samiti on 27 April 2001 in demand of Telangana as a separate state. In 2001, sent a resolution to the then NDA government to look into Telangana state demand, which was rejected by the then Union Home Minister L K Advani? But in 2006, TRS quit the coalition governments with congress in the state and at the Centre in December 2006 and continued an independent fight. TRS launched an indefinite hunger strike on 29 November 2009 demanding the creation of Telangana. But the Centre again put the Telangana issue on hold.
Telangana region witnessed a series of agitations like the Million March, Chalo Assembly, and SakalajanulaSamme (general strike) in 2011-12 while MLAs belonging to different parties quit from the House. Union Cabinet approves the proposal of bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh and a group of Ministers is formed on October 3, 2013. Six Congress MPs from Seemandhra were expelled on February 11 for moving a no-confidence motion against the government. Lok Sabha passes Telangana bill on February 18 after several protests. Finally, Telangana becomes India’s 29th state, on June 2, 2014. Reasons for separation: 45% of the state income comes from Telangana region but the share of Telangana is only 28% in the utilization of funds, there are 25 plus government degree colleges in Krishna, Kadapa, and Guntur district but there is not even a single government degree college in Ranga Reddy district, Telangana projects were made unviable by inflating the cost of the project, undue priority was given to private power projects owned by Andhra capitalists at the cost of cheap hydro and thermal power.
