Police get the whip for Khammam firing

The Chief Minister today announced suspension of the Additional Superintendent of Police, Khammam and transfer of the Superintendent of Police, Khammam, following the death of 8 persons in police firing in Mudigonda, Khammam District. The Chief Minister also ordered a judicial enquiry into the firing incident.

Reacting to the police firing in Mudigonda in Khammam District at his Camp Office today, the Chief Minister said the incident was quite unfortunate. He said he was asking the police to keep cool in spite of all provocations and agitation since the last 2 months by the two Communist Parties.

Police were keeping restraint till now. But, however today when the police were attacked with the stones and one Circle Inspector and one Sub Inspector were seriously injured and the vehicles of ACP and Addl.SP were attacked, the police reported to have opened fire. The Chief Minister said, whatever may be the reasons that led to the police firing, The judicial enquiry he ordered will look in to all the aspects in death and submit the report immediately.

The Chief Minister said following the bandth, the government also ordered APSRTC to withdraw majority of the buses from the road and only skeleton services were being run. In spite of bandth turning violent and many provocative incidents during the day the police remained calm and many places and only at Mudigonda the police open firing and causes which will be enquired in depth. The Chief Minister said he has been appealing to the CPM, CPI parties to spare the life of innocent people and not to involve them in violent provocative agitations.

The Chief Minster appealed to all political parties to help maintain peace and law and order. He reiterated that the government will provide houses to all the landless in the State and there is no need for such agitation. He once again appealed to the political parties to call off the agitation. The Chief Minister lamented that innocent lives have been lost in the firing. "Every life is very dear and precious. Their lives could have been spared. I am pained very much that some innocent people lost their lives.

Regarding ex-gratia, we will take a decision after a preliminary enquiry", he said.

No parallel between Basheerbagh and Khammam?

Eight people including a woman and a boy were killed in police firing on a group of agitators in Mudigonda village of Khammam district on Saturday. The Congress wants to draw a parallel between the Khammam firing and the one that took place at Basheerbagh in Hyderabad when the Telugu Desam was in police. Then two persons died in the firing.

The Telugu Desam does not want to draw any parallel. It says the Basheerbagh firing was under compulsion and the Khammam firing was without provocation.

Former chief minister and Telugu Desam president N Chandrababu Naidu says the Khammam firing was a sequel to the dictatorial attitude of Chief Minister YS Rajasekhar Reddy.

The Congress built a memorial at the Basheerbagh site. It is to be seen whether the Telugu Desam will cash on the firing and convince the Left in building a similar memorial there.

Fact Sheet: Babu fishes in troubled waters!

Former chief minister and Telugu Desam president N Chandrababu Naidu has finally got a real political issue to fight with the Congress government.
The unprovoked police firing on Communsts in Mudigonda village in Khammam district which left eight people dead has come handy for Chandrababu Naidu to settle political scores with Chief Minister YS Rajasekhar Reddy.
Chandrababu Naidu has given a call for State-wide protests on Sunday and has decided to visit the village to console the family members of the victims. He also claims that the Pedala Shankaravam, which the TD had taken up, had led the Communists to take up the ongoing land agitation.He in a way suggested that the TD has inspired the Left to take up fight for land distribution among the poor.
Chandrababu Naidu was busy all through the day holding meeting with senior TD leaders and at the end of the session held a press conference. He said he was withholding the demands and would come out with demands only after he visits the village.
This is a clear cut case of fishing in troubled waters.

Health Talk : Smoking could ruin your sex life

New York: Smoking could ruin your sex life as it can increase the risk of erectile dysfunction among men, says a new study.
And the more cigarettes smoked, the greater the risk, found the research that studied 7,684 men between the ages of 35-74.
The researchers led by Jiang He, professor of epidemiology at the Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine in New Orleans, examined the association between cigarette smoking and erectile dysfunction.
They used questionnaires to assess the participants - none of whom had vascular disease.
The study found that there was a significant statistical link between the number of cigarettes that men smoked and the likelihood of them experiencing erectile dysfunction, reported science portal EurekAlert.
The link between smoking and erectile dysfunction was even stronger in participants with diabetes.
Although erectile dysfunction is not a life-threatening condition, it compromises well-being and quality of life.
The Tulane study results suggest that smoking prevention should be an important approach for reducing the risk of erectile dysfunction.
Smoking is already known for causing 87 percent of lung cancer deaths. It is also responsible for many other cancers and health problems.

TD raises environ issue on Obulapuram

Seeking to counter the statement of Chief Minister YS Rajasekhar Reddy that the Obulapuram Mining Company has renewed license upto 2017, the TDP has submitted a letter to the Union minister of state for environment and forests Reghupathi on Friday.

The Telugu Desam party has alleged that while sending its proposal for approval to iron ore mining in Obulapuram village of Bellary reserve forest area, the Andhra Pradesh government has failed to give the "true picture" to the environment ministry. "About the various cases pending before the courts, which runs contrary to the guidelines issued by the Government of India, for obtaining approvals under section 2 of the Forest Conservation Act, 1980."

TDPP leader K Yerran Naidu and former MP Kambhampati Rammohna Rao met Mr Reghupati and handed over the letter. "Added to this, the mining department of Government of Andhra Pradesh granted mining licenses and extended lease without prior sanction of the Union of India under the FCA act," Naidu said in the letter.

YSR succumbs to Andhra lobby on GO 610

Andhra and Rayalaseema MPs and MLAs urged the Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhar Reddy not to repatriate government employees who are on the verge of retirement under GO 610 rule.

The MLAs met under the leadership of senior Congress leader and MP Harirama Jogaiah in the assembly premises on Friday and decided to oppose repatriation of such employees.

After an internal meeting, a delegation met Chief Minister and submitted a memorandum requesting him to create supernumerary posts for such employees and retain them in their respective places in Hyderabad city. Chief Minister promised to consider their plea.

Mr Harirama Jogaiah later told media persons that they were not opposed to implementation of GO 610 but the Government should also look into the problems of senior employees who are on the verge of retirement. "Repatriating the employees at the fag end of their career will disturb their families. On humanitarian grounds, the Government should retain them in their respective places by creating supernumerary posts," Mr Jogaiah said.

Behind The Scene: Diggy finds fault with YSR!

The Congress high command is apparently not happy with Chief Minister Dr Y S Rajasekhar Reddy's foul mouthing of Opposition Leader N Chandrababu Naidu, which the national media projected in big way showing the Congress party in bad light.

This was evident from the words of AICC general secretary in-charge of Andhra Pradesh affairs Digvijay Singh. Diggy found fault with YSR saying it was not proper on the part of the Chief Minister to utter those words and then apologise. He sounded that AICC president Sonia Gandhi was not happy with the aggressive behaviour of YSR.

The AICC president is also not happy with the handling of Left parties' land struggle issue by the YSR government. She tried to influence CPI-M national secretary Prakash Karat, but the situation has already gone out of hands, as the YSR government tried to suppress the agitation using force.

Another issue that displeased Sonia was the PJR issue. Though he is cooled down a bit, thanks to the intervention of V Hanumantha Rao and Iqbal Singh, there is evey possibility that he might lead the anti-YSR gang within the Congrss. PJR is meeting Diggy on Saturday and hopefully, he migh get an appointment with Sonia, too, sources say.

Andhra Congress leaders rake up GO 610 issue!

Looks like the woes are not over for Chief Minister YS Rajasekhar Reddy on the controversial GO 610. Several governments have kept the GO in cold storage and YSR government took interest in implementing it. But the government is facing trouble for taking up the long lost issue.

Even as the Telangana Congress leaders are bringing pressure on Rajasekhar Reddy, now two senior Congress MPs from coastal Andhra have called on him with the demand that the GO 610 be implemented in the larger context of the Presidential Order. The coastal Andhra leaders feel that there will be no problem in the Presidential Order was implemented.

They have raked up the demand that super numerary posts should be created in Telangana region and stop the repatriation of employees from coastal Andhra.

Why did Leftists carry chilli powder?

The Communist parties have been claiming all these days that they have been going absolutely peacefully in their agitation for lands and land sites. But going by the turn of events that happened on Thursday, it appeared that they were prepared for a violent agitation.

The activists of Communist parties, who were participating in the agitation, came well prepared with packets of chilli powder, so that they would attack the police when the latter tried to arrest them. So, definitely they expected that the agitation would turn violent, if the police atack them.

And that exactly what had happened. When the police resorted to lathicharge, the activists attacked them with chilli powder. According to an estimate, 26 Left activists were injured while, 46 policemen were also hurt. So, no hypocricy!!
