Help spread the truth about Telangana region of India. Since 1956, when Andhra and Telangana merged, Telangana has gotten the short end of the stick in terms of natural resources, funding and representation in government. Though two major rivers have their sources in Telangana, irrigation projects divert the precious water to other areas. The feelings have often spilled over into violence, and in 1969, 400 people died in Telangana-related violence.

Guntur or Vijayawada could be developed as capital for a bifurcated Andhra Pradesh

From :

New Delhi, Jan. 8: The Congress core group on Friday took stock of the situation in the state in the wake of a sharp divide on the bifurcation of the state and Thursday’s violent reaction to reports of an alleged conspiracy behind the death of YSR in a helicopter crash on September 2, 2009.
Government sources said the process of bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh would throw up a host of contentious issues, including the status of the present capital, Hyderabad, and sharing of river waters.
The government is also looking at the option of whether Guntur or Vijayawada could be developed as capital for a bifurcated Andhra Pradesh. The government indicated this option was being looked into as Hyderabad falls in Telangana.
The core group, consisting of the party chief, Mrs Sonia Gandhi, the PM, Dr Manmohan Singh, the finance minister, Mr Pranab Mukherjee, the home minister, Mr P. Chidambaram, the law minister, Mr M. Veerappa Moily, and Mr Ahmed Patel, met at the PM’s 7RCR house.
