    Highlights:

    1. PCC President Kesava Rao garu started off with the priorities
    topic. He said "A Political party winning the elections does not
    guarantee that it can do what it wants. He said the party needs to
    take into consideration the current needs of the people and adapt to
    time. He said, if the policies of the previous government are good,
    the winning party should adapt them and Congress party is doing the
    same.

    2. Nagam Janardhan Reddy started the fire by making comments on the
    schemes of the Congress. He said current government just changed the
    names and doing the same. Janma bhoomi is the first scheme where in
    the people had the oppurtunity to question the government officials
    and it is Chandrababu who gets the credit for that. Current congress
    government is just doing pallebata, nagarabata, and some other batas.
    They are going in buses with doors closed and waiving through windows.

    3. Gollapalli Surya Rao reacted severely to Nagams comments and said
    that the farmers were totally neglected by the TDP and they did not
    care a single bit. He commented that TDP is the government that said
    Agriculture is a waste and that TDP had the philosophy that nothing
    should be invested there. He said that the current Rajasekhara Reddy
    gari government is focussed on uplifting the farming community and
    Rajasekhara Reddy garu came to be known as "Raithu baandhavudu".

    4. When Nagam and Surya Rao garu were debating there was some chaos in
    the crowd with some slogans from both sides. The moderators cooled
    down the situation. Program creator Gangadhar garu had to come upon
    the stage and cooled down the people.

    5. Yerrabilli Dayakara Rao garu made some comments on PCC President
    Kesava Rao garu by saying that "Kesava Rao garu talks in English and
    most of it is hard to understand." He wanted Kesava Rao garu to be
    clear in his expression, specifically on Telangana. He also made a
    comment on Telangana that TELANGANA IS THE PURSUIT OF SOME POLITICIANS
    WITH NO POWER AND SOME PEOPLE WHO CANT DO MOVIE ACTING ANY MORE. There
    was a laughing riot when he said "WHO CANT ACT ANY MORE..."

    6. Kesava Rao garu throught his speech on Telangana said that
    Telangana is not something that he or Nagam or Nayani Narasimha Reddy
    decide. He said that there needs to be a consensus among the different
    parties and Congress is doing just the same. Congress appointed a
    committe under Pranab Mukherjee and the SRC is going to decide what is
    going to happen.

    7. YS Vivekananda Reddy garu was asked to speak on effect of Telangana
    on Rayalaseema and would there be a separate Rayalaseema if Telangana
    were to split. He answered by saying, the decision of Telangana is
    taken up by the Congress party and he would stand by the decision. He
    said that his party is currently focussed on eliminating regional
    differences via building irrigation projects and making sure that
    there are no woes. He listed out some of the undertakings of the party
    in the Rayalaseema region.

    8. MP Rayapati Sambasiva Rao commented by saying, he personally
    prefers "United Andhra". However, he said, he would abide by the
    decision of the Congress party.

    9. Dhulipala Narendra, Julakanti Durgamba talked about the effect of
    Telangana on Andhra and they felt that it is necessary to have a
    united state. Durgamba said that even brothers in the same family have
    a lot of differences in their economic levels and that does not mean
    they should split. Narendra said that TRS is only the creation due to
    lack of power.

    10. Nagam Janardhan Reddy said that the reasons for the formation of
    TRS are obvious and neither Congress nor TRS does come out with a
    clear answer.

    11. Nayani Narasimha Reddy, the only TRS representation said by saying
    Telangana is not a todays problem. He ridiculed the comments made by
    the TDP folks. He expressed optimism that Sonia Gandhi would deliver
    Telangana for his people. He STRESSED that the relations between the
    Andhra people and Telangana people would be intact. He said prior
    Telangana movements results in anti-Andhra agitations but current
    Telangana movement taken up by TRS has been on the peaceful side. He
    proudly expressed that not even one single incident happened in the
    past four years where Andhras were harrassed and the same would
    continue in the coming years.

    12. When V. Hanumantha Rao was asked to talk about Telangana, he was
    really HUMOROUS. The crowd went into laughs the whole time. He started
    off his speech by saying.... "Naaaku yenduku eee lolli.... Idhi yetla
    vundhante... Gareebgaani pelliki Abdullagaani havaa lekkanunnadhi". He
    continued saying, Telangana people are really innocent. They are like
    hen. They say ko ko ko" when they have a problem and then sleep.
    Rayalaseema people would see the end of it when they have a problem.
    Andhra people would go wherever the water is there. He concluded by
    saying, Congress is in the right path by taking the consensus of
    various parties and it would make the right decision on this sensitive
    issue.

    13. Madhu Yaski Gowd was introduced as a member of the former TANA
    conference. He proudly said, he is a TANA member before he is an MP.

    14. Dr. Ravibabus speech was the most impressive. He was questioned
    on the priority of the Congress government to power. His answer was
    very impressive and he seems to have convinced the crowd. He got a
    good applause.

    15. Chandu Sambasiva Rao said that regardless of the parties, there is
    good and bad and parties have to pick the good things and change for
    the better. He was very tucked in his speech and he too got a good
    applause.

    16. Guntur Zilla parishad Chairman Pathuri Nagabhushanam garu talked
    on the NRI cell and how effective it is. He said he collected several
    crores of Rupees from the NRIs and deployed them towards hospitals,
    schools, Roads, scholarships, etc. He stated that he is still
    continuing it via matching through the Zilla parishad funds.

    17. Janga Krishna Murthy commended the work of Dr. YS Rajasekhara
    Reddy and he said that the current government took the right
    priorities which were neglected in the earlier regime. He thanked the
    TANA members for giving him the oppurtunity.

    18. Kesava Rao garu and Janardhan Reddy garu answered one question
    each from the audience. There were 200+ questions posed to them but
    due to time constraints, I. Venkata Rao garu picked two questions
    randomly one for Kesava Rao and one for Nagam.

    19. Nagam and Kesava Rao were asked to make concluding remarks. Nagam
    thanked the crowd and he made some jovial on Nayani Narasimha Reddy.

    19. Kesava Rao concluded by saying, "Guess who the first one to be
    arrested during the Telangana movement way back.... Nagam..." and he
    asked Nagam how long he was in Jail for the Telangana movement.

    stage and described the importance of the event.

    21. I. Venkata Rao garu played the moderator role.

    22. Atmakuri Amarnath gave the vote of thanks. He thanked all the
    representatives for coming and participating at a short notice. He
    also praised the crowd for cheering for all the parties though every
    one is political aware and every one has a party of liking. He felt it
    is a reflection of the hospitality of TANA. He thanked Suresh Reddy
    garu for accepting the role of the observer and expressed that "This
    is the first time a discussion with 20 political representatives from
    various parties stood on the same dias and talked about several
    issues. The credit goes to Gangadhar garu and all the volunteers."

    23. Suresh Reddy garu gave the observer remarks. He said, he is very
    relieved after playing the speaker role in the Assembly and sitting in
    a relaxed mode now. He said that I. Venkata Rao garu did a great job
    and made a jovial remark that people would appreciate his job after
    seeing Venkat Rao garu today. He said that the state is in great hands
    under the very hardworking and able leader ship of YS Rajasekhara
    Reddy and a dynamic opposition leader like Chandrababu and all the
    representatives that are seated on the stage. He thanked the
    organizers for giving him the oppurtunity.
