YSRC Deeksha Overshadows 30-Apr-2018
YSRC Deeksha Overshadows Naidu Meeting. The day-long hunger strike taken up by YSR Congress party leaders in the name of Vanchana Vyatireka Deeksha (Protest against betrayal) at Visakhapatnam on Monday appears to have overshadowed the proposed public meeting of Telugu Desam Party president and chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu at Tirupati. While the deeksha began at 7 am, the media had enough fodder to feed the viewers right from the beginning. Luckily for the YSRC, there are no other major developments in the state and as a result, the media channels had to give extensive coverage to the one-day deeksha of the party leaders, including MPs, MLAs, MLCs and other public representatives. The party managed to mobilize big crowds to the women’s college ground at Visakhapatnam, where the day-long dharna was held. The Deeksha was launched by YSRCP Member of Parliament (MP) Mekapati while the party MPs and MLAs participated in the protest wearing black shirts. For a change, the YSRC leaders took even the BJP to task, even on a low note, but their prime target was obviously the TDP, for betraying the faith of the people by not securing the special category status to AP. YSRC leader Ambati Rambabu found fault with the BJP leaders for spreading false rumors over the special status mentioning that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Vice President Venkaiah Naidu, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu and Jana Sena Party President Pawan Kalyan assured Special Category Sta...

Good Response to Congress Meet in Vizag. Visakhapatnam: Thousands attended the North Andhra Congress conference organised on the occasion of the 85th birth anniversary of late Dronamraju Satyanarayana who was party’s strong man for several decades in the region, on Tuesday giving the impression that the party has for the first time shown signs of recovery after the 2014 debacle when it drew a blank in the aftermath of the bifurcation of the State.

Prominent among the leaders who attended the conference and paid tributes to Satyanarayana were former Union Minister of State Killi Kruparani, former chairman of TTD Kanumuri Bapiraju, former ministers N. Raghuveera Reddy, PCC president, Pasupuleti Balaraju, Visakhapatnam rural president, and Kondru Murali, and former MLA Dronramraju Srinivasa Rao who is son of the departed leader. Addressing the packed indoor auditorium, Raghuveera Reddy said that the election of Rahul Gandhi as AICC president has a tonic effect on the party and exuded confidence that Congress would capture power in the 2019 elections. Rahul Gandhi would live up to expectations and steer the party to success in the country, he stated. He paid rich tributes to Dronamraju Satyanarayana who always stood by the party in a crisis and endeared himself to the masses by his good work. Bapiraju said th...

Konathala Demands AIIMS For Vizag 19-Sep-2017
He says Naidu concentrating only on Amaravati region. The repetition of the mistake of ‘capital-centric development’ in Amaravati would fuel movements for separation in other parts of the State. This was pointed out by Justice BN Sri Krishna Committee and later echoed by the Sivaramakrishnan Committee, former Minister Konathala Ramakrishna has said. Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu, who had admitted his ‘Hyderabad mistake’ and promised decentralized development in all 13 districts of the State, was now concentrating only on Amaravati region, ignoring other regions of the State, Mr. Ramakrishna told the media here on Monday. The TDP 2014 election manifesto also promised all round development of the State. The people of Visakhapatnam had not asked for the capital, though the city has all advantages. But, the backward districts of Srikakulam, Vizianagaram and Visakhapatnam, which comprise North Andhra, have been denied their due even after three years of the new government coming to power. Mr. Ramakrishna said the 400-bed Visakha Institute of Medical Sciences (VIMS), set up during the late Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy government, was functioning only partially with the beds lying unused for the past five years. He demanded converting VIMS into the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) as the proposed AIIMS in Guntur was ‘fat-fetched’ as there is nothing but an empty land parcel, surrounded by a compound wall. The government could have easily opted for...
