Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy was seen defending his stand when presenting his views about Telangana to Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh.

The Congress high command, it seems, had asked YSR to clarify his stand on Telangana because almost all other parties in the State now seem to be supporting the T issue. The high command wanted him to state how he is going to go for elections if he is undecided on Telangana.

Congress is now into its third phase of Indiramma Sambaralu. For those who know little about these celebrations, let us tell you, the Congress during its rule has done several pro-poor activities in which one is the Gruha kalpa scheme under which they claim to have constructed lakhs of houses for the poor.

At several of these speeches, YSR has been seen becoming very emotional. He first highlights all the good things, then gives the statistics for everyone to see the facts, and finally he requests the people to compare the development programs of Congress and TDP and see for themselves what difference the Congress is making for them.

TDP leader, Chandhrababu Naidu, asked NTR kin not to attend Yuva Garjana meeting. Except Balakrishna, all the other actors of the family are to refrain from this public gathering.

Shocked by Junior NTR’s refusal to attend the meeting, TDP has taken this decision to make sure that people do not conceive that there is a divide in the NTR family over TDP. Chandrababu Naidu feels that others can be involved in the meetings at a more appropriate time later during Election campaigns.

Junior NTR met Chandrababu Naidu at his residence and they seem to have had a discussion for about an hour. Chandrababu Naidu tried to convince Junior NTR to attend the Yuva Garjana campaign rally on Nov 5. No matter how much he tried, Jr. NTR just did not get convinced. He admitted to having some prior commitments for his upcoming movie (incidentally called MLA) and that he wants to honor those commitments.

It is already talk of the town that the NTR family is divided over their support for Telugu Desam Party. This move may not go well with the party. There are two main reasons cited for this action. One, Jr. NTR wants to concentrate more on his Acting career like his contemporary actors such as Mahesh Babu, etc. Two, that he requested a party ticket for his film producer who wanted to contest from Gunnavaram, but the party has denied this request because they wanted to place their own candidate in this seat.

Gadar gave an interview with a local TV News channel recently. He spoke extensively about Telangana and his interactions with various party leaders in Andhra Pradesh about this issue. Here is an excerpt from the interview.

Question: What do you think are the major issues in Telangana in the present day.
Gadar: Some of the major issues are lack of self respect, social justice, improper allocation of natural resources to the region, and social, cultural, political and economic differences of the region when compared to other regions in Andhra Pradesh.

Question: Your own contribution for the emancipation of this region is well-known. In what other ways are you working towards this goal?
Gadar: You are right, my own struggle is selfless, neutral and pro-poor. I sing for the poor even with bullets in my body. I participate in almost all programs where I am invited for a good cause. I have no resistance or no opposition when I want to meet any big leader in any party to have my word with them. My struggle is focused, devoted, and disciplined. (He goes into a ballad impromptu…)

Question: It seems you interacted with Chiranjeevi recently, what was the discussion all about. How did Chiru react to a separate Telangana?
