Telangana UPA meet_0_1_0.jpg

Visakhapatnam: P Ramesh Babu, a Congress legislator from Pendurthy Assembly constituency in the district, has resigned from his post to protest the Congress decision to form a separate Telangana state.
The MLA said here on Wendesday that he sent his resignation letter to Assembly Speaker Nadendla Manohar through fax last night. "I am for united Andhra," Ramesh Babu said, adding that he resigned from his post as he was upset over his party's decision to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh and carve out Telangana as a separate state.
Guntur MP Rayapati Sambasiva Rao, who is currently in the US on a private visit, faxed his resignation from his membership as well as the Congress party.
Two Congress MLAs, Thota Trimurthulu (Ramachandrapuram) and Ponnada Satish Kumar (Mummadivaram), both from East Godavari district, also faxed their resignations to the Speaker protesting the party's decision. The 20 Point Economic Programme Chairman and PCC spokesperson, Dr N. Tulasi Reddy, also resigned in protest.
The Congress and the UPA on Tuesday unanimously decided to create Telangana state out of Andhra Pradesh, a momentous decision that came in the face of stiff resistance from leaders from non-Telangana region.
The Congress Working Committee, the highest decision-making body, decided to recommend to the central government to form the 29th state which will comprise 10 districts. Hyderabad, considered the crowning jewel of the Telangana region, will be the joint capital of the newly-proposed state and the other regions--Rayalaseema and Andhra--for a period of 10 years.
A new capital for Andhra will be identified Seemandhra region within this period.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
