Profile of M.S. Shanker
YSR Congress Telangana leader Y.S. Sharmila tells M.S. Shanker that her party will storm to power in the 2023 assembly polls. Excerpts:
A Rs 2,000-crore aid package for Dalits? No one in Telangana can really oppose that, except to ask ‘why only in Huzurabad?’ Good question. Bypolls, what else.
The Telangana CM’s damage control measures following the custodial death of a Dalit woman find few takers
'We treated over 20,000 cases of Covid and our treatment process helped reduce the mortality rate to almost zero,' says Dr D. Nageshwar Reddy, founder of the Asian Institute of Gastroenterology in Hyderabad
Speculations are rife that former TRS leader Etela Rajender and many other party members will join the BJP
India could overcome the pandemic by the year-end if the AIG treatment protocols are followed religiously along with a vigourous vaccination drive, says Padma Bhushan Dr D Nageshwar Reddy in an interview to Outlook.
A founding member of TRS is ousted for corruption. But there’s more here than meets the eye. The backward Mudiraj caste leader had dared to frown on the CM’s own rampant nepotism.
All of 2.6 lakh village volunteers, fanning out across Andhra. Result? An India record of 6.28 lakh jabs in a day, nearly 50 lakh in all. Jagan pulls off a Covid surprise.
The spice goes missing from the political gravy he had cooking up on the eve of a bypoll. The rivals of D. Aravind, a rising face of Telangana, are licking their chops.
The YSR legacy rides high in Andhra, the post-split coastal state, via his son Jaganmohan. Why is daughter Sharmila making a sortie into Telangana with a new party?
Extinction comes even to the canniest political animal. That’s what Chandrababu, who once stood at the heart of India’s federalism, is staring at after a run of electoral droughts.
How come this genteel city of minarets, and now a prosperous tech hub, has ranked so low among cities? Some say it’s bias. Others cite neglect and visionless growth.
Naidu’s TDP faces decimation after losing series of local and municipal elections.
'Why do you guys want to create confusion? I am fit to rule for the next 10 years….' That’s KCR, the Telangana CM, quelling rumours fuelled by his health and his own talk.
There are strong rumours that KTR will take over the reins from his father sooner than later, but their party TRS denies it.
Yedugiri vs Nimmagadda makes for a champion fight in Andhra. Should there be local polls? Who should conduct it? The ball ping-pongs between HC, EC and political grandees.
The BJP’s stunning ten-fold growth in Hyderabad’s municipal polls sets off a counter-alignment on the other side, with TRS and AIMIM teaming up? What’s the deal, ask saffronites.
With the elections advanced by a month, both BJP and Cong are in disarray.
At least 16.2 per cent and 6 per cent of developed land reserved for SC/ST entrepreneurs
Vijayawada police Commissioner said that they have shifted about 20 of total 30 patients to various hospitals.
The opposition BJP argues that there is no hurry to demolish the building at a time when the nation is going through a health crisis.
The Congress has also blamed the state police for its failure to reign in those who are violating Covid-19 norms and holding social gatherings.
During its first visit to the state last month, a central government team found several discrepancies in the list of actual Covid-19 fatalities in Telangana, as well as in conducting rapid tests.
