Rani Rudrama Reddy’s 15 minutes of fame

TRS never misses a chance to incite the most base instincts among people for its political aggrandizement. The party news channel anchor cannot be expected not to have learnt a thing or two from her bosses in this department.

The speech made by T News anchor Rani Rudrama Reddy at the TV Nandi Awards for 2009-10 function, was of course pre-planned and in true fashion of the separatists, intended to maximize the political returns for TRS. The speech was meant for frontbenchers and contains every element of false patriotism, the eternal resort of scoundrels.

The cheap rhetoric couched in pretentious protestations is not very different from the regular vomit. Out of 130 artists and technicians being awarded for their contribution to television that evening in Mahabubnagar, the Nandi award winner for 2009 said – without any statistical evidence of course – not even 30 would have been from Telangana.

The intended conclusion is obvious. Without dignifying such uncouth argument, one can  simply ask Rani Radrama Reddy to count the number of MLAs in her party who are Velama or Reddy. Or the number of MLAs from Telangana in all parties who belong just to one dominant community.

No one needs to learn from the shallow profundity of a news anchor, who of course believes that she was being anointed in the process to the golden pages of the holy book of Telangana struggle as propounded and capsuled by her party. It is the irony of our times that an anchor of a tv channel that so patently gives one-sided news can really talk about regional discrimination.

She probably thought she had become overnight – with that one ‘political speech’ –  an Indian female version of Michael Moore. I am sure we will be treated to – in days to come – to many such references in articles in Namaste Telangana eulogizing her ‘heroic’ effort.

Cinematography Minister D K Aruna gave a fitting reply to the bamboozle of our ‘wannabe tv celebrity’. Aruna was bang on when she pointed out that creative artistes should get their due for their talent, not for their region etc.

KCR’s  stature will not allow him, but given an opportunity to score political brownie points, he can be expected to demand to know from the venerated Nobel Committee of Sweden as to why not a single Telangana scientist or writer failed to make to their list till date!

Something is surely  rotten in the state of Andhra Pradesh or how else can one comprehend the blind support extended by all manner of intellectuals and rights organizations – with neither intellectual integrity nor political foresight – to such blatantly divisive and poisonous and essentially anti-democratic prattle?




  • TRS can stoop down to any level to incite the mass. Rani Rudrama, when she was in TV9, many viewers were impressed by her news reading. Now she became notorious like suspended DSP Nalini.She was kicked out by her earlier bosses because of this nature similar to KCR by then boss CBN.

  • When a national common entrance for mbbs was mooted why is that our Ap govt requesting to postpone for a year or two.just becuase our syllabus doesnt match with cbse pattern.

    like wise their are many people in telangana, due to economic constraints / compared to coastal people unable to pursue their favorite interests, in some way you can say compete with their richer counterparts in garnering opportunities

    It is true that coastal Ap is not the one and only cause for Telangana Misery.but ranis comments if you look at implicitly , it says if telangana economy prospers (here it is felt through separate state) then telangana artistes will get opportunities.this logic comes from – if we are separate state focus of governance is better and we will benefit . thats it

    why is yanam included in pondicherry.i think its time we look at things positively

  • Gutsy and well written article…Kudos to the author!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • raani rudrama is real and true reporter bcoz she supported and she will support telangana she will play her part in division of telangana.no one can stand and talk about telangana in front of all those leaders who are against telangana ,and that too in nandi award function.raani rudrama is telangana muddu bidda and puli bidda
