About Andhra Pradesh Elections

The Indian National Congress party won most of the state elections from 1953 to 1983. There were 10 chief ministers from the year 1956 to 1983. In 1983, however, there was a lot of change in the political scenario. N.T. Rama Rao, established a new party called the Telugu Desam party and within nine months of its formation, the party was voted to power and NTR became the chief minister and was the first from the non-congress party. But the party broke into two parties as the then state finance minster Nadendla Bhaskara Rao chose to separate and form the state government with the support of Congress. Later on again NTR came into power in 1984. In 1989 the congress came back to power with Marri Chenna Reddy as the chief minister and was in power till 1994.

NTR appointed his son-in-law as the revenue minister in 1994, when he was the chief minister. But due to the influence of the wife of NTR, his son-in-law Chandrababu Naidu became the chief minister and the party now came to be called as TDP (NTR). In the year 1996 NTR died and his wife succeeded after him. Chandrababu Naidu became the next chief minister for 9 years till 2004. After that the Indian National Congress again came into power and made Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy the chief minister.

Changes were taking place fast and a separate Telangana state was demanded by the people in that region. In 2009, the central government announced the process of the new state, but controversy arose as the city of Hyderabad was also one of the ten districts of Telangana region. Today the decision is on a hold till the parties come to a unanimous decision.

Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy became the chief minister again by defeating Praja Rajyam Party and alliances. However, he died in a helicopter crash in 2009, following which Konigeti Rosaian became the chief minister in 2009. But he soon resigned and Nallari Kiran Kumar Reddy was sworn in as the chief minister of Andhra Pradesh. But now due to the protest because of the formation of Telangana Kiran Kumar Reddy has resigneda and President's rule has applied in the state till the next Government is formed in the state.

Issues of the state


Bifurcation: The decision to divide Andhra Pradesh into Seemandhra and Telangana has raised many issues for the people of the state. The bifurcation has many economic implications.

a) Income: It is believed that the bifurcation of the state will be damaging to the other regions as most of the income of the state of Andhra Pradesh comes from Hyderabad and the execution of welfare programmes would not be possible in other regions if the state is divided.

b) Employment & Education: The youth of the state feels that after the division, educated people of the backward regions like those in Rayalaseema will be denied employment opportunities.

Resources: Sharing of water and energy resources will be a major problem. Bifurcation of the state will also lead to water problems in Andhra & Rayalaseema as Telangana is on the upstream of Krishna & Godavari rivers
