Ramgopal Varma gets ‘threatening' calls

HYDERABAD: Filmmaker Ramgopal Varma on Sunday said he had received threatening calls on his phone from people who said they would take ‘drastic action' if he portrayed Sane Obul Reddy, the faction leader from Anantapur district in ‘bad light' in his forthcoming film ‘Rakta Charitra', in Telugu ,Tamil and Hindi.
It may be recalled that Mr. Varma is close to completing shooting the first part of the film that is said to be based on the vicious factions of Anantapur district in Rayalaseema region.

While actor Surya is playing the role of Gangula Suryanarayana Reddy alias Suri, Bollywood's Vivek Oberoi has essayed the role of Paritala Ravi, former Telugu Desam MLA from Penukonda, who was murdered.

On Sunday, the filmmaker said in a press release that he was not afraid of Obul Reddy's supporters. Apart from receiving a legal notice from them, he was also threatened over phone that if he portrayed the Gangula and Sane families in bad light, he would face action other than what could be done legally.

He wondered how one would be able to gauge the portrayal of the characters unless he sees the movie.
Legal notice

The Gangula and Sane families have had a faction feud with the Paritala family for at least two decades now.It is not known as to how many calls Mr. Varma received but on Saturday, he got a 5-page legal notice dated August 22 from an advocate in Anantapur, N.R.K. Mohan.

The notice was filed on behalf of Y. Uma Rani and O. Usha Rani of Anantapur.
The advocate said his clients had come to know through the media about the production of ‘Rakta Charitra' and that they had reliably learnt about Sane Venkataramana Reddy and his younger brother Obul Reddy were portrayed as villains and ‘evil doers' in the film.

Some of the dialogues in the film were damaging the reputation of the clients' families, Mr. Mohan said, calling upon Mr. Varma to take note and delete all the offensive scenes and dialogues.

EMRI 108 service turns five

All praise: District Collector Shashi Bhushan Kumar speaking at the EMRI 108 service fifth anniversary celebrations in Kadapa on Friday. 
KADAPA: EMRI 108 service is one of the schemes that is running effectively despite teething troubles and obstacles, district Collector Shashi Bhushan Kumar said on Friday.

Participating in the fifth anniversary celebrations of EMRI 108 service at IMA Hall here, the Collector said the ambulance service was extending yeoman services to people at a nominal expenditure, compared to any other scheme. It helped save the lives of 2,753 persons and earned the goodwill of people, he stated. Kadapa Mayor P. Raveendranatha Reddy said former Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy had conceived the EMRI 108 ambulance services in order to assist people during exigencies. It was subsequently introduced in other States, he said. Regional Manager of EMRI 108 service K. Suresh said 1,60,533 accident victims were saved and 38,170 pregnant women were shifted to hospitals for delivery and in some cases, women delivered a child in the ambulances. Deputy Mayor K. Nabi Rasool, EMRI 108 staff and technicians participated.

TDP demands loans for farmers

KADAPA: S.V. Satish Kumar Reddy, Telugu Desam Party convener of Pulivendula constituency, on Saturday warned of demonstrations by the party at all the banks in Pulivendula if bankers did not disburse subsidised loans for raising sunflower crop by September 5.

Speaking to newsmen at Pulivendula, he deplored non-sanction of crop insurance for groundnut and sunflower crop losses in last year's rabi season. Bankers did not credit about 5 per cent of crop insurance sanctioned for groundnut in kharif season of 2008-09 in farmers' accounts, he alleged.

Crop insurance sanctioned was dismal and grant of 67.54 per cent crop insurance in Vemula, Vempalle, Thondur, Lingala and Chakrayapet mandals and a meagre 30.79 per cent in Simhadripuram mandal was irrational, the TDP leader asserted.

Bankers claimed that insurance companies had not sent them the crop insurance amounts, he said.

The inflow into Kundu river might rise if heavy inflows were received and hence the officials were placed on the alert and villagers forewarned to be prepared to move out of the villages if needed, Mr. Venkatasubba Reddy said.

Jagan to tour Telangana soon

Home turf:People turned up in large numbers to welcome Congress MP Y. S. Jaganmohan Reddy whose ‘Odarpu Yatra' entered the second day in Kadapa on Tuesday.
KADAPA: Former Minister Konda Surekha spewed fire on some Congress leaders for trying to stall Kadapa MP Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy's Odarpu Yatra by raising a hue and cry and asserted that Mr. Jagan would conduct Odarpu Yatra in Telangana too.

Ms. Surekha, who paid homage to former Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy at his Samadhi in Idupulapaya, wondered at a news conference in Pulivendula R&B guest house, as to why leaders who had never opposed yatras by several leaders in the past, were now targeting Mr. Jagan and trying to defame YSR.
She exuded confidence that Mr. Jagan would conduct Odarpu Yatra in Telangana and that Congress high command would recognise his commitment to the party leadership. She hoped that the divergent opinions among Congress leaders on the Odarpu Yatra would end soon. Maintaining that Mr. Jagan's interests were supreme to her over that of Telangana, she advised Congress leaders to decide if they wanted posts or would go by the people's aspirations.

The former Minister and her husband Konda Murali, an MLC, and daughter Kavitha, placed garlands on YSR samadhi. She placed a rakhi on YSR's Samadhi.

Ms. Surekha's daughter daughter, Warangal MLC Pulla Padmavati were among several others who tied Rakhi to the Kadapa MP.Mr. Jaganmohan Reddy consoled the family members of eight deceased Congress sympathisers in Vemula, Vempalle and Chakrayapet mandals in his native Pulivendula Assembly constituency in his Odarpu Yatra for the second day on Tuesday.

He promised to stand by the people, particularly the bereaved families and assist them in all respects. He consoled the kin of deceased partymen, who died in September last year after the demise of YSR in a helicopter crash.

Mr. Jagan promised to bear all the expenses for educating the children of late Dasaratharami Reddy after consoling his family members in Velpula village in Vemula mandal. Earlier, he unveiled YSR's statue at Kondavandlapalle in Chakrayapet mandal. Several women, including those older than Mr. Jagan, tied rakhis to him expressing their support to him, come what may. Kadapa MLC Y.S. Vivekananda Reddy, Warangal MLC Pulla Padmavati, Kadapa DCC president K. Suresh Babu and several local leaders participated.

Attirala (Hatyarala)

ChennakesavaTemple, Andhra Pradesh Attirala is a very sacred place, located on the east bank of the river Cheyyeru. The sanctity of the river Cheyyeru was elaborately described in the great epic of Mahabharata. It is believed that the river Cheyyeru redeemed Parasurama from the sin of matricide and also miraculously gave hands to Likhita, the brother of Sankha a great sage. It is a centre of Vedic culture and famous for its scenic beauty. The temple of Parasurama Kshetra is located here. To the south of this temple there is a 72 pillared hall and on the eastern side there are two famous temples on the hill slope dedicated to Gadhadara and Thretheswara.

Parasurama Kshetra is worth seeing for its sculptural beauty and grand appearance. There is a Jyothistambha, higher up in the temple of Thretheswara, on the top of a hill. Jyothi, lighted on festivals, is visible to distance of 30 Kms around. Attirula is located 8 Kms from Rajampet and 55 Kms from Cuddapah.

KADAPA: The controversy revolving around the ancient Sri Agasteswara Swamy temple in Proddatur in the wake of a protest launched by Telugu Desam Party MLA of Proddatur Mallela Linga Reddy blew over, with the temple committee members reopening the temple and priests performed pooja on Wednesday evening.

A.P. Pradhana Archaka Sangham president Soundararajan visited temple today and held discussions with Mr. Linga Reddy, who is staging a protest along with his followers demanding reopening of the temple which has been closed for the last three months.

Discussions held
A joint committee comprising Mr. Soundararajan, endowments officials and trade union leader Tapathi Velu held discussions with Mr. Linga Reddy for finding an amicable solution to the issue. The MLA explained to the committee members about instances of corruption and “Vaasthu dosha” in the temple, which needs to be corrected.

Removal of the installed “navagraha” in the ancient temple and polishing them would lead to “arishtam” and would not augur well for Proddatur, Mr. Soundararajan remarked.He found fault with diverting water from the sanctum sanctorum of the temple to a nearby drain and constructing structures higher than the gali gopuram of Sri Agasteswara Swamy temple in the vicinity were lapses which must be rectified, he said.

Relay fast
The Government must probe instances of corruption. The committee members inspected the temple in detail.
Earlier, two devotees Pratap Reddy and Kondaiah launched relay fast demanding reopening of the temple.

Congress, TDP for united State; BJP abstains

KADAPA: Leaders of the Congress, Telugu Desam Party and some public organisations strongly voiced the ‘Samaikyandhra' demand before the Srikrishna Committee in Kadapa Zilla Parishad meeting hall on Wednesday, but Bharatiya Janata Party leaders abstained from the meeting. Congress MLC Y.S. Vivekananda Reddy said an integrated State was imperative in order to ensure completion of irrigation projects under Jalayagnam and development of the backward Rayalaseema region on par with Telangana. Hyderabad city developed with the contribution and investment of people of all regions and became a hub of employment and livelihood for the professionally qualified youth.

Kadapa Zilla Parishad Chairman D. Jyothi Reddy also wanted a unified State. The district was being neglected after YSR's demise and division of the State would leave it in a lurch and youth might be driven towards naxalism, she observed.

12 TDP functionaries held

KADAPA: Kadapa One Town police on Monday arrested 12 Telugu Desam Party functionaries on a charge of damaging a bus at Lakshmiranga circle here during the State-wide bandh on July 19 deploring the shoddy treatment meted out to TDP president N. Chandrababu Naidu by Maharashtra police during his tour of Babli project.

TDP State secretary S. Goverdhan Reddy, district vice-president S. Subhan Basha, Telugu Nadu Students Federation district president V. Ravisankar Reddy and functionaries D. Jayachandra, P. Veeraiah, K. Srinivasulu, B. Obul Reddy, B. Chandrasekhar, J. Srinivasulu, T. Diwakar, K. Venkatasubba Reddy and M. Elia were taken into custody by police.

Mr. Goverdhan Reddy and Mr. Subhan Basha questioned the arrest, after almost a month.
Kadapa First ADM Rajiv ordered remand of the 12 arrested TDP functionaries up to August 30.

War Memorial cries for attention

Vandalised: Film posters, pamphlets pasted all around the War Memorial in Kadapa.

KADAPA: Independence Day is a solemn occasion to reminisce the sacrifices of valiant martyrs who laid down their lives in the freedom movement, but the War Memorial at Yerramukkapalle in Kadapa city, built in memory of valiant soldiers who laid down their lives in wars stood in a neglected state.

Some ex-servicemen visited the Memorial and hoisted the Tricolour on the occasion of Independence Day, but neither Minister for Minority Welfare Mohd. Ahmedullah nor senior district officials laid a wreath or paid homage on the solemn occasion on Sunday. Kadapa Municipality had allotted a circular site in the 1990s to the Kadapa District Ex-Servicemen Pensioners' Association, which constructed the memorial with voluntary contributions from the office-bearers of the association and under the guidance of the district Collector, who is Chairman of the Zilla Sainik Board.

Then district Collector, P. Subramanyam, who was killed in a helicopter crash along with former Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy in last September, laid the foundation stone on the Independence Day in 1993. His successor Veena Ish inaugurated the War Memorial on December 7, 1995, in memory of “unknown soldiers of Kadapa district who sacrificed their lives in past wars for your (citizens) tomorrow”.

The War Memorial, which is in a traffic island remained dusty with its paint worn out, film posters and pamphlets of various organisations and associations pasted all around and pieces of torn political party flags hanging from the insignia of “a rifle with a soldier's helmet” on top of the memorial. However, the memorial too was illuminated with serial lighting on Independence Day on par with several government offices and other traffic islands in Kadapa city.

Nevertheless, the Minister Ahmedullah paid rich tributes in the 64th I-Day celebrations on Police Parade Grounds to martyrs. He felicitated freedom-fighters – Aijaiah, 93, K. Chinnaiah, 74, Capt. Janakiram, 74 and S. Narasimhulu, 84 - who participated in the 64th Independence Day celebrations in the Police Parade grounds here.

PR chief flays YSR, Rosaiah

KADAPA: Praja Rajyam president K. Chiranjeevi had a dig at the former Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy in his road show at Galiveedu in Kadapa district by alleging that YSR's “pet project” Jalayagnam was conceived to pocket “commissions” from contractors.

Referring to the Veligodu project in Rayachoti Assembly constituency, he said the Congress government spent Rs. 250 crore on the project but failed to supply irrigation water to even one acre under it.
Mr. Chiranjeevi entered Kadapa district at Galiveedu on Thursday night as part of his three-day Praja Chaitanya Yatra in the district.

Lambasting the Congress, he alleged that the party was neck-deep in a crisis owing to infighting between partymen, who were vertically divided into warring groups.

He questioned how the Congress could resolve the people's problems when it was unable to resolve the internal bickering.

Referring to the alleged irregularities in Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation, Mr. Chiranjeevi demanded that a CBI inquiry be ordered to bring out the facts and bring to book those behind the irregularities.

Mineral wealth
Accusing the Rosaiah government of being in slumber on illicit plundering of mineral wealth, the Praja Rajyam president alleged that nearly one lakh tonnes of iron ore were being sent abroad from Obulapuram Mining

Large crowd of people, who awaited Mr. Chiranjeevi's arrival since afternoon, welcomed him with cheers and slogans.Men, women, youth and children were perched atop house tops, climbed trees and squatted on compound walls to catch a glimpse of their favourite leader.

Praja Rajyam district president B. Hariprasad and leaders Nazeer Ahmed, N. Srinivasa Rao and others welcomed their party president with garlands when he reached Galiveedu four hours behind schedule.
