Telangana agitation - part IV: Influx of people from coastal Andhra, Rayalaseema to Hyderabad

Some Quick Facts

By Syed Akbar
1. With influx of people from coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema to Hyderabad and surrounding districts in search of employment, thenumber of Assembly segments in Telangana region went up by 12 from 107 to 119.
2. In the delimitation of Assembly constituencies during 1978, Andhra region had 134 seats, Telangana 107 and Rayalaseema 53. In the recent exercise Andhra lost 11 seats while Rayalaseema lost one. Telangana
gained by 12 constituencies. It shows influx of people from coastal Andhra region to Hyderabad and surrounding areas in the last three decades.
3. The migration from coastal districts is mainly in search of jobs. There's no employment potential in any of the nine districts in coastal Andhra or four districts in Rayalaseema. The only place in the State that offers employment other than Hyderabad is Visakhapatnam. The State government failed to develop industries and corporate offices in equally important places like Vijayawada, Guntur, Kurnool, Rajahmundry, Karimnagar, Nizamabad, Warangal, Nellore and Tirupati. This explains the influx.
