Telangana-parties reject Rayala Telangana

Hyderabad: The pro-Telangana parties, the TRS, BJP and the CPI, are against the formation of a Rayala-Telangana comprising 12 districts.
TRS president K. Chandrasekhar Rao cancelled his media briefing scheduled for Sunday evening at the last minute and decided to wait for the Congress’ official stand on the state’s division. 
After holding talks with his party leaders and TJAC chairman Prof. Kodandaram on Sunday, Rao reportedly raised objections regarding a Rayala-Telangana.
“Why should we endorse such a proposal? It neither helps the people of Telangana or Rayalaseema. Also, how can the TRS agree to Hyderabad as a common capital for two states on a permanent basis or a Central government administration in Hyderabad?,” Rao reportedly told his party leaders. 
The TRS has also decided to oppose any move by the Centre to control financial and law & order issues in Hyderabad in the event of a bifurcation.
TRS spokesperson Jagadeeswara Reddy said that the party was not going to support Rayala Telangana and demanded a pure T-state comprising only 10 districts of Telangana with Hyderabad as the capital city. 
State BJP president G. Kishen Reddy too said that the party would oppose splitting the four Rayalaseema districts. “No one asked for a Rayala Telangana. We want only a T-state and nothing short of it,” said Reddy.
On Saturday, CPI state secretary K. Narayana had also opposed the move and had demanded that a Telangana state be formed.
On Monday evening, leaders of the ruling UPA will meet at the prime minister's residence to discuss the statehood issue, the Food Security Bill and convening the Monsoon Session of Parliament. 
Congress president Sonia Gandhi is supposed to brief the UPA partners on her party’s stand on Telangana in detail during the meet.
Since all the existing UPA partners have, in one way or the other, supported the Telangana cause in the past, it is believed that there will be no opposition to the proposal of bifurcating Andhra Pradesh.

DIG Iqbal quits in split second

In probably the first such case, a police officer of the rank of deputy inspector-general has resigned to protest the reported decision to divide Rayalaseema and form Rayala Telangana with two districts from the region.
Officially, Shaik Mohammed Iqbal cited “personal reasons” in his resignation letter sent to the chief secretary through the director general of police.
However, sources close to him revealed that he felt “heart-broken” about the impending division of Rayalaseema.

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.
