    EC rejects common symbol to YSR Cong
    The Election Commission of India has rejected the request of newly-formed YSR Congress floated by Y S Jaganmohan Reddy for allotment of a common symbol to its candidates contesting the Kadapa Lok Sabha and Pulivendula assembly bypolls. The EC made it clear to the fledgling party that a common symbol will be allotted to only those parties which field a minimum of 10% candidates in assembly elections. The order issued on March 25 by the EC rendered the YSR Cong ineligible for a common symbol as bypolls are being held only in two constituencies. Jagan’s party should contest at least 29 seats in order to be eligible for a common symbol. The YSR Congress is likely to field Jagan from Kadapa Lok Sabha seat and his mother Vijayalakshmi from Pulivendula. Following the EC decision, the two would have to contest on different symbols.

    This is my email to Mr. MBS Prasad garu

    Hi MBS garu,

    I am regular reader and follower of your articles very carefully. I always open greatandhra.com only to find your articles.

    Here I want to request you for your views on two things:

    1. Vision of CBN vs Vision of YSR on economic development and overall development of State

    Please do touch various sectors like education, health, industries, agriculture, electricity, social welfare…etc.

    Here I just want to give you a link for an article by Swaminathan

    2. JP: a real intellectual?

    I used to have a great respect for JP, but seems recently he keeps on proving that he is no different to other leaders. As I am an admirer of YSR and I doubt myself my own judgment.

    Here I quote some instances for this:
    1. In Margadarsi episode, he came out openly to support Ramoji Rao saying that if public did not complain why govt need to take action etc.
    2. Gave a LS ticket to Vignan director Mr. Rathaiah who do not have primary membership in the party by the time.
    3. Supporting TDP in many cases like:
    i. Supported only CBN hunger strike on farmers issues and said do not risk life, but why not others?
    ii. Voted TDP candidate for MLA quota MLC elections
    iii. Long speech in the recent concluded assembly on land allotments in YSR regime, saying he has proofs for every case

    * Actually our state do not have guidelines for land allotments for govt to follow. He always talks of system failure in any other case, but here he seems targeted the individuals in his speech mentioning only the cases in 2004-09 period.
    * Why he do not file a petition to any court or investigative agencies, as he claimed he has proofs with him?

    Your views on both of these topics will help a lot to many netizens, so called intellectuals and many. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Friends,
    If somebody has contacts with Greatandhra could you please help this article(economic times) posted and we also have original copy of the report itself. Let us try to post it in multiple forums so that people will know what happened and will also know about YSR. The problem is with rest of india CBN is considered as pro reformist and economist…but nobody knows that he is a dumb guy…

    let us start posting this article along with original copy in multiple websites, forums so that we will get more coverage and help remove the negative tag YSR had outside of andhra.

    let us this asap and spread the message to the rest of world…


    • Niranjan

      one more thing i forgot to add is his friend who was heading Mckinsey at that time when he was CM mr Rajat Gupta is facing severe allegations of insider trading…

      with this help of this guy only he got more publicity…


      • Ram

        Anta scam andi – okadini okadu goppa ani dabbalu kotti promote chesukunnatu TV la loo, papers lo… bhogam vidyalu avi… amayaka prajalu nammi ’99 malli vote vesaru… ’04 kanee ardham avvaledu janaalaki…

        • Ram

          I clearly saw this happenning on silpakala stage in Hyderabad 2001 or 2002.

          CBN was promoting Bill Gates, and Bill Gates was lobbying for contracts and promoting his new Tablet and CBN. Iddarini choostee navvu vacchindi, aa roojee decide annanu, veela leaders ani. Next day Eenadu was writing as if CBN was a visionary because Bill Gates, the wold’s richest man says so! Antha media manipulation. Common sense poyindi janaalaki – kaadu kaadu, chaduvu kuni unna mati pooyina vaalaaki…

      • Sesh

        Rajat Gupta was a co-founder of ISB too. Infact there was a big game plan by many of the corporate honchos to loot AP. CBN was acting as their agent. Rajat Gupta and co authored Vision 2020 and Eenadu took due care to publicise it and project CBN as messiah of AP. Billy Rao was another guy who got so much land for scot free. Bill Gates is a business man. It is not hard to lobby for guys like Rajat Gupta, Billy Rao etc to have Bill Gates come to AP and praise CBN to get so much land for free and 10 year-tax rebates. What will Bill Gates lose? Nothing. ‘Satyam’ Raju is another guy. Thanks to YSR, our state is saved from these scumbags.

        • Ram

          Both co-founders of ISB, Rajat Gupta and Anil Kumar were arrested. They now keep a low profile like Satyam Raju.


          • Anil

            True. Rajat Gupta used to promote babu a lot. In every interview and article, he used to mention no CM is as good as babu and he had never seen a visionary like babu . Good that he is behind the bars now. Might be we should get an article published in sakshi, GA about the fellow and his nexus with babu with the snaps of these articles.


      it would be nice if u scan thm and post thm in some blog or somewher and v ll share it in fb and othr sites..it would b nice if u can write the gist in a para..tht para alone should tell the content outline..wats ur opinion?

  12. Sesh

    Very good article…Babu economics ki YSR economics unna diff clear ga ‘nakka ki naga lokaniki unnanta’. Babu gaadu Mckinsey vaadiki crores ichi raapinchina ‘Vision 2020’ ni chinchi gutters lo veyali. Johar YSR!

    • Sesh

      Infact, so-called intelluctual JP shud be asked to react on this article. Swaminathan mundu veedu bebbebe antadu..waste fellow in AP politics is JP!

    • Ram

      @Sesh, You nailed it. Vision 2020 is a gobal agenda promoted by World Bank, and the Big-4 (may be one of the Big-5 then) consulting company was just pushing forward its agenda. Our CBN was a catalyst for accelerating the agenda. Vision 2020 was capitalistic in nature, and does not accommodate views of all segments of people, and all major economist’s views of those days. Hence it was never a Vision for common man, whom CBN and his followers think as irrelevant, as long as they can see a % growth in some XYZ economic parameter. The flaws in this Vision were obvious, from day 1. CBN had a hidden agenda, to make money for himself and his followers. This is the stark difference with that of YSR, where we had inclusive growth in all sectors (including those highlighted by CBN like IT, Other Services and Manufacturing), where the benifits touched the grass-roots. Thats why Common Man voted YSR in 2009.

      Sakshi should make programs on
      (a) Blurred Vision 2020 of CBN
      (b) YSR’s Vs CBN Vs MMS views on Development.

      There is a stark difference between YSR’s viwes on Development with respect to World Bank Views copied by Manmohan Singh and CBN.

      • CVReddy

        You are right Ram.

      • Ram

        How about Sakshi doing an Interview with Dr Swaminathan to highlight what YSR’s Vision stands for and Dr Subramanian Swamy (Janata Party) to promote Jagan, and his defiance, and what it means to be a leader with integrity.

        How about a clear program on “CBN Vision 2020 Vs YSR Inclusive Growth Vision” – clearly hitting them under the belt where it hurts. For this, Sakshi should use other prominent figures to promote YSJ agenda. They should not promote themselves. Otherwise it will be a self-goal. Its always better airing programs as ‘They Said’…than ‘I, Ram from Sakshi Says so…’. This is audience psychology 101.

        This is the type of quality programs I expect Sakshi to make with confidence. They need to put the facts straight and promote it like hell 100 times, no mincing words, just plain hitting

        • Sesh

          very good idea..but Swaminathan will talk abt crony capitalism and beneficiaries of YSR policies too:) Infact, what kept AP growth story intact during YSR’s regime was inclusiveness of many sections of people which were previously ignored. However an unbiased view of any economist will favour that of YSR’s than CBN’s. CBN’s policies distanced certain sections to favour few. In any case CBN’s Vision 2020 was blurred and required a doctor like YSR to cure it!

          • Ram

            A program can be made with interviews of Economic Professors of say A AP University, B Delhi University and C US / Europe Universit. All it requires is to identify those people who share YSR’s views and make them speak in front of Camers… and a scrolling comes below highlighting ‘Dean of … Univ’..’ or a back ground voice comes highlighting that professor’s experiences and how prominent he/she is.

          • Ram

            Its all propoganda sir… Propoganda with facts and emotional points is what stays with people…

  13. Gurava Reddy

    Time to show the power of YSR to the match fixers, Avivekas, unfaithfuls, illegitimate intellectuals, and Italians. Let’s go and win and show the state and country what YSR means to us all.

    JP Brokered Deal Between Naidu And Kiran?
    I think JP is paying back Naidu for his kind gesture in last elections(TDP didn’t contest against JP and hence JP won)

    Congress Survey about Kadapa and Pulivendula seats:

    According to sources, a survey said to have been commissioned by the ruling clique concluded that Jagan and Vijayalakshmi will trounce their opponents from both the Lok Sabha and assembly constituencies, and that the Congress will come third behind the TDP in Kadapa. Thus it is a strong Jagan who awaits a shaky Congress in the bypolls that would be Kiran Kumar’s first major challenge after taking over as CM.

      Astrology is not just about a person’s life in Andhra Pradesh, here it is given maximum importance. So, whenever predictions roll out looking at the horoscopes of big politicians or actors, the interest is double. Right now, few predictions have been made on Y S Jagan and on the future of TDP.

      A famous astrologer hailing from Telangana area and a distant relative of a TRS leader gave his predictions on condition of anonymity. He said “Come 2014 elections, Y S Jagan will have a clean sweep throughout the state while congress will get minimal seats. Then, congress will come to Jagan asking for support to form government.”

      He also predicted “TDP will suffer a humiliating defeat and already, the signals are being seen as the party is looking weak.” The astrologer also gave an interesting line on the T-folks, he said “Few of the TRS MLAs will jump into Jagan camp at a key moment.” While these are all speculative, it is heard that recently Lagadapati Rajagopal came up with a survey report of AP and it is matching with the astrologer’s predictions. Let us see what happens

    In Andhra Pradesh, as the post-result mudslinging following the MLC elections continues to playout in interviews and other media, we get to see the many ugly sides that rear themselves in the ongoing tussle to best YSJ. Stripped of all options Congress is now resorting to other cards in its playbook, which we are learning is equipped with quite a few creative gimmicks to needle, impede and stall competition. Apparently the prospect of suppressing Jagan’s rise is more enticing than a united or successful Congress.
    Scrambling at straws, Congress has resorted to unleashing a series of Income Tax raids on Jagan’s various businesses and enterprises. A subject of great absorption for Jagan’s detractors is his ‘ill-gotten’ wealth. The picture people would like to paint of Jagan is that he was born into poverty and so was his father and they suddenly amassed vast sums of money that becomes available to one merely because one’s father was a Chief Minister. Obviously that isn’t true. Given how utterly public Jagan’s life is, there is no secret to the fact that his grandfather made his wealth through his savvy investments in mining. As long as three decades ago, Raja Reddy, YSR’s father was a highly successful entrepreneur dabbling in mining activities, shipping, agriculture and real estate.

    During the same time, India’s own impressive growth has transformed the poor into the middle class, the middle class into the upper middle class and therefore wealthy category and catapulted the wealthy into the mega wealthy club. Jagan’s admittance into that club was a natural progression led by an intelligent grandfather, a successful father who in his capacity as Chief Minister would most certainly have guided his son toward successful investments. What would people have rather preferred happened? That YSR forsook his family while he took care of the affairs of state? If Jagan’s wealth is to be questioned, so should that of all of the middle classes who find themselves with more cash in their pockets now than their parents and grandparents ever did. Let people make COLA (cost of living adjustments) to their assertions or else their fabrications could be termed as libel.
    Against the backdrop of the MLC wins notched up by YSR Congress Party albeit the argument that the wins hold a slim majority, one has to only view the victory against the backdrop of the massive opposition mounted on him to deliver a blow to his aspirations by the combined forces of ‘historic’ political entities like Congress and the TDP. Hard fought as the battle was, YSR Congress Party’s success was that much sweeter because of the tactics employed by both the Congress and TDP. Jagan and his followers need to be doubly aware of the ploys that can be employed against him and anything can happen as desperate times call for desperate measures.

    In the end, it could be a realty-check that could have made the Congress to open its eyes with regard to success in Kadapa and Pulivendula. According to sources, a survey said to have been commissioned by the ruling clique concluded that Jagan and Vijayalakshmi will trounce their opponents from both the Lok Sabha and assembly constituencies, and that the Congress will come third behind the TDP in Kadapa. Thus it is a strong Jagan who awaits a shaky Congress in the bypolls that would be Kiran Kumar’s first major challenge after taking over as CM.
