Prof. Kodandaram stressed the need for a strong strategy to face the challenges in Telangana State. He said that the major and serious issue is the suicides of formers and the protection of agricultural sector. He further told that the people of the State have many aspirations which the TRS Govt. has to fulfill. He clarified that TRS and Telangana State are two different name. He pointed out that separate Telangana Movement was launched to put an end to the illegal domination of Andhra Capitalists on the natural resources of Telangana. In this movement, TRS was a party. When the dream of Telangana State was materialized, incidentally, TRS emerged as the ruling party of the new State. He also told that TRS as a ruling party has not been successful in fulfilling the aspirations of the people. He mentioned that protection of natural resources is prime responsibility of the Govt. Government should spend the money collected from taxes on the welfare of the people. The development of the people cannot be fulfilled by writing it on a piece of paper. Intellectuals should come forward to make Telangana Govt. a state which would provide full justice to the people. He told that Telangana JAC in collaboration with other organizations would form a joint forum which would identify the mistake of the State Govt. and ensure eradication of injustices.
He told that during his present visit to Canada, proposals to convert TJAC as political party also came up.
Prof. Haragopal told that the attitude of the Govt. towards the people of Telangana should be uniform. During the past 60 years, injustices were done to SCs, STs, BCs and Minorities. In order to end all these injustices, State Govt. should take serious steps. On this occasion, Prof. Kodamdaram also released a souvenir depicting the hopes of the people of Telangana after the formation of TRS Govt.
