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.

TRS denies attacking Lok Satta Party chief

Denying that they attacked Lok Satta Party president and MLA N Jayaprakash Narayan in the Andhra Pradesh Assembly premises, TRS MLAs today alleged that he never cared for the sentiments of Telangana people.

?We did not attack him. He says our protest against Governor?s address is a black day. But why has he never shown any respect for the sentiments of Telangana. Why did he not condemn the suicides of hundreds of Telangana people,? senior TRS MLA T Harish Rao told reporters.

Claiming that Mr. Narayan was responsible for creating an atmosphere of confrontation in the assembly, TRS politburo members T Jagadish Reddy and Shravan Kumar said what happened in the assembly was only a manifestation of Telangana self-respect.

TRS MLAs allegedly beat up the Lok Satta Party chief and Congress MLC Paladugu Venkata Rao in the premises of the State Assembly today.

The alleged incident occurred after the TRS MLAs tried to manhandle Governor E S L Narasimhan inside the House during his address to the joint sitting of both the houses on the opening day of the Budget Session.
