If the New Delhi sources are to be believed, Union Minister of State for Human Resource Development D Purandareshwari is all set to get the prestigious post of AICC spokesperson, a post which was held by seniors like S Jaipal Reddy, Ambika Soni and Kapil Sibal.

According to these sources, the Congress high command is more than happy with for her vitriolic attack on the Telugu Desam party and its supremo N Chandrababu Naidu. While the Congress thinktank is breaking its head as to how to erase the impression among the people that Rs 2 a kg rice scheme was only a Telugu Desam scheme introduced by its founder-president N T Rama Rao and therefore, it would help only the TD in the elections, Purandareshwari is making efforts to to delink NTR from the TD. She is trying to convince the people that Naidu is not a successor of NTR and that if at all there is anyone, who is implementing the policies of NTR, it is only Chief Minister Dr Y S Rajasekhar Reddy.

Purandershwari's logic has convinced the high command, though Sonia Gandhi initially did not like her to involve NTR's name in the Congress politics. But after realizing its impact on the Congress prospects, she felt Purandareshwari is right. And soon, Sonia is expected to appoint her in a key post in AICC, preferably, the Congress spokesman, sources say.

What your number predicts for 2008

Wondering what 2008 has in store for you? Numerologist Sanjay Jumani deciphers your future according to your ruling number.

1 People born on the 1st, 10th, 19th and 28th in any month are termed as Number 1 people, ruled by the planet Sun.

With 2008 being ruled by the Sun, the number 1 people in a position of authority would fare well, showing the way to their subordinates with elegance.

With a little rumination, you could balance it into a win-win situation. It’s high time you focus on the non-materialistic things of life, which are also very important. Try to delve in the spiritual side too.

2 Number 2 represents the Moon, and they are persons born on the 2nd, 11th, 20th and 29th of any month.

Ruled by the Moon, this year would be favourable for the number 2 also, as 1 and 2 are quite compatible. The most important thing for you to do this year is not to depend on others to complete the job you started. Though this year will be good for you, your dreamy nature and over dependence on others could bring delays or failures in your life. You’ll be at your imaginative best if you allow your thoughts to go with the flow. Some of your intuitions could turn into realities. Those in alternate sciences such as yoga, meditation, reiki, astrology can climb further.

3 People born on the 3rd, 12th, 21st and 30th in any month are termed as Number 3 people, ruled by the biggest planet Jupiter.

This year being equal to number 1, you may find some opposition to your plans. However due to your stubborn and ambitious nature, you could overcome these hurdles and surge ahead in life.

Sun could further ignite your ambitious side, and make you more forceful, not for the sake of accumulation, but from the fear of being under obligation to others. You may excel in the execution of commands, being orderly and disciplined.

In the bargain, others may consider you dictatorial, so try to use a surgeon’s knife in such situations.

4 People born on the 4th, 13th, 22nd and 31st in any month are termed as Number 4 people, ruled by the planet Uranus.

A good year ahead as the numbers 1 and 4 go hand in hand; those who are awaiting a job change or marriage could get rewarded.

Due to your original ideas, and unconventional thoughts, you are likely to face problems in the form of misunderstandings. However, if you follow your intuitions and original thoughts, you stand better chances of success. Those who are in litigation could get a breather, but must try to avoid business partnerships.

5 People born on the 5th, 14th, 23rd in any month are termed as Number 5 people, ruled by the planet Mercury.

Due to your ruler Mercury, the fastest planet, you could be in quite an impulsive hurry, brimming with emotions. All others may not be as quick as you to match up with your pace, so expect less to avoid disappointment. If you faced a few problems last year, this year things could start to look up, especially on the financial front. Try to use your communicative skills, which is your USP.

6 People born on the 6th, 15th and 24th in any month are termed as Number 6 people, ruled by the planet Venus.

You could have an average year, although the number 6 is good for the number 1, it is sometimes seen that 1 is sometimes unkind to the number 6, so this year, brace yourself to face some delays in completing your projects.

May and October are the best months to start anything important.

Those who are in newer relationships should be warned not to be hasty, and may play the waiting game.

7 People born on the 7th, 16th and 25th in any month are termed as Number 7 people, ruled by the planet Neptune, and such persons are also under the influence of the interchangeable number 2 of Moon.

Ruled by the planet Neptune, 1 is one of the number 7’s best numbers, so a good year ahead. Travelling for work or pleasure would be profitable for you this year, but learn to control those mood swings and take decisions from your head and not from your heart.

Spiritually, a satisfying year, and yoga, meditation and alternate therapies could give you immense gratification. Those in consultancy, or any kind of service-related work could see unprecedented profits accrue.

8 People born on the 8th, 17th and 26th in any month are termed as Number 8 people, ruled by the planet Saturn.

Ruled by the planet Saturn, 1 of the Sun is the lucky number for the number 8, so although a year for you to surge ahead, be careful in your investments, and do not put all your eggs in one basket.

Try not to trust anyone blindly, invest sensibly and think before acting.

This year could see you make great progress both financially as well as personally.

Those on the lookout for buying land could take a chance, and some of you may end up with your dream house too.

Post-February, you should see a positive development as regards your profession.

9 People born on the 9th, 18th and 27th in any month are termed as Number 9 people, ruled by the planet Mars.

Ruled by the fiery planet Mars, the number 9 is a strong number at the end of the number line, and as there are seven numbers in between the numbers 1 and 9, you would find work being delayed, or missing opportunities that should have been rightfully yours.

This year you should keep a check on your temper and use your energies for constructive things to have a good year. Past laurels could come in handy, if you use them, which is not a bad idea if one does so, once in a while.

Chiranjeevi Stopping TTD Chairman Getting MLA Ticket

No one knows if assumptions on Chiranjeevi's political entry are sending tremors among many but it is sure that TTD chairman Karunakar Reddy is quivering for that. Karunakar Reddy has been the 'yes man'of YSR and expecting MLA ticket from Tirupathi for 2009 elections. But YSR is cold on that aspect now. It is said that he is planning to reserve that ticket for person from Kapu community. The current Congress MLA at Tirupathi is Venkataramana who is a Kapu. As the chances of Chiranjeevi entering politics in 2009 are many, YSR doesn't want to take risk by giving Tirupathi ticket for other than Kapu leader. So Venkataramana will retain that again.

Apart from this, Karunakar Reddy is also upset as CM Is not giving positive signal for the lobbying of his brother's wife for the post of VC-Padmavathi Mahila University and request of his sister's husband for the post of VC-Sri Venkateshwara University.

Probably, Karunakar Reddy's prayers weren't answered by Tirumala Lord as of now.

Behind The Scene: Dasari becomes butt of ridicule!

The image “http://www.greatandhra.com/newsimages/dasari1199033031.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

The Congress high command, which was of the opinion that Union Minister of State for Coal Dasari Narayana Rao is a man of principles and stature, has changed its mind now.

Eversince Dasari made that speech inviting Yuvaratna Balakrishna into politics and described him as future Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, the AICC was flooded with complaints against Dasari from the Congress leaders. Leading the batch of complainants is Rajya Sabha member V Hanumantha Rao. In fact, by loosing his tongue, Dasari has become a butt of ridicule in the AICC and everybody is doubting his credentials now.

Realising that he is under a scanner, Dasari rushed to Delhi to do the damage control exercise. H tried to convince the leaders in the AICC as to why he had to play to the gallery at the Balakrishna function, but there were no takers for his argument. Looks like days are numbered for Dasari.

Loose Talk: And now Kaka wants 3 States!

Former Union minister and senior Congress leader G Venkataswamy has dropped a bomb shell. He now demands the division of Andhra Pradesh into three States. Not two. He wants AP to be divided into Telangana, Rayalaseema and Coastal Andhra. He even went to the extent of saying that the Congress Central leadership was also in favour of the trifurcation of Andhra Pradesh.

This is the first time that a senior Telangana leader in the Congress party to come out with such a type of proposal. So far Congress leaders from Telangana have been demanding separation of Telangana from Andhra Pradesh. But no one spoke of division into Rayalaseema and coastal Andhra.

Perhaps it is a clever ploy to gain the support of people from the backward Rayalaseema district. Or is it his real intentions to have the State divided into three parts. Though Venkataswamy, popularly known as Kaka, has not said it in so many words, it has however become clear that he would continue with the fight for Telangana in the new year. With the Congress high command refusing him the post of the President, Venkataswamy is at least aspiring for some gubernatorial post. Age, however, does not permit this senior Congress leader to play an active role either at the national level or at Telangana level. His spirits are quite high, despite his feeble age.

TRS not to contest bye-elections in Khairatabad

Hyderabad - Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS), the regional party fighting for a separate Telangana state, Sunday announced it would not field a candidate for bye-election to Khairatabad assembly seat as a mark of respect for senior Congress leader P. Janardhan Reddy who died Friday.

TRS president and former union minister K. Chandrasekhara Rao told newsmen that his party had decided to appeal to other parties to ensure unanimous election of a member of Reddy's family. He had fought for the rights of the people of Telengana.

Reddy represented Khairatabad constituency in the state capital for a fifth term. He had also served as a state minister.

Meanwhile, rich tributes were paid Reddy at a condolence meeting held at Gandhi Bhavan, the headquarters of the Congress party. Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy also paid tributes to the former minister and announced that a memorial would be constructed in his honour in the capital.

Leaders of Communist Party of India, Communist Party of India (Marxist) and Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) also paid their last respects.

Behind The Scene: KCR takes it easy on Gaddar

Telangana Rashtra Samithi president K Chandrasekhar Rao is taking the comments of revolutionary balladeer Gaddar against him with a pinch of salt.

Apparently, people of Telangana take Gaddar's words with respect and therefore, his comments against KCR would definitely have an impact on the voters. Realising this, the TRS is refraining from retaliating against Gaddar. On the other hand, it is not attaching much importance to his words, saying that Gaddar's agenda was different from that of the TRS.

A TRS leader said the party would focus in its campaign that it would believe in "votes and seats" strategy to press the Centre for the formation of separate State. "If they (Mr Gaddar and other detractors of Mr KCR) have their own plans, they should go ahead with their own plan after all we are all striving for the separate State," he said.

He predicted that the support of TRS would be crucial for the formation of the government after the next elections and this would create a situation where they had to give the separate State.
