TDP wins Rayalaseema MLC Graduates seats in AP
In West Rayalaseema, the ruling party has claimed a big win in the two Teachers constituencies. VIJAYAWADA:Results of elections to the Graduates and Teachers MLC seats have brought cheer for both YSRC and Opposition TDP. After winning the North Andhra Graduates MLC seat on Friday night, the TDP continued its winning streak and won the remaining two Graduates constituencies of West and East Rayalaseema. In Prakasam-Nellore-Chittoor, TDPs Kancharla Srikanth Choudhary was declared victorious by 34,110 votes against his rival Pernati Shyamprasad Reddy of YSRC after second priority vote counting. In West Rayalaseema, the ruling party has claimed a big win in the two Teachers constituencies. However, Anantapur-Kurnool-Kadapa Graduates seat was embroiled in a controversy. While YSRCs V Raveendra Reddy maintained lead from the first round of counting that started on March 16, he did not exceed 2,000.With none of the candidates getting a clear majority, the officials started counting of second preference votes on Saturday. Following this, tables turned in favour of TDPs B Ramgopal Reddy as votes of BJP, PDF and independents went in his favour. As soon as the result was out, YSRCs Raveendra Reddy and former MLA K Visweswara Reddy staged a protest alleging lapses in counting and demanded recounting. The party shot off a letter to the Chief Election Commission and AP Chief Electoral Officer. Poll results dont reflect anti-incumbency: Sajjala In the letter, they stated that they noticed transfer of YSRC votes to TDP bundles, which was later re-transferred. Demanding the votes be counted again, they alleged that there might be irregularities during the counting. Defeat in East Rayalaseema was shocking for the YSRC as it has a stronghold in the region with 32 legislators off the 36 Assembly constituencies falling under the graduates MLC seat. The party had formed a committee for enrolling graduates as voters, particularly in urban areas such as Nellore, Tirupati, Ongole and other major areas in the MLC Assembly constituency. Opposition leaders criticised that the YSRC, which tried to show its might by winning both Graduates and Teachers MLC seats in the East Rayalaseema region, fell flat on its face due to anti-incumbency. Though Energy Minister Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy, who is also Rayalaseema regional coordinator for the party, monitored the election campaign, the ruling party has failed to attract graduate voters. TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu, too, wrote a letter to the election commission to declare the party candidates win from the West Rayalaseema graduats seat. Undeterred by the defeat in graduates MLC elections, YSRC general secretary and Government Advisor (Public Affairs) Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy said the voters constitue a minor section of the society and that majority of the graduates are not beneficiaries of their welfare schemes. The MLC election results do not reflect anti-incumbency. In fact, we pulled a great victory by winning the two teachers constituencies in the MLC elections for the first time, he pointed out. Congratulating the three winning candidates, Naidu tweeted, I salute to the leaders and activists who have stood tall against the atrocities of the YSRC during the elections. This is a victory of the people and an indication of change. It is a good omen for the State. YSRC WRITES TO POLL PANEL, DEMANDS RECOUNT In a letter to the Chief Election Commission and Chief Electoral Officer of Andhra Pradesh, the YSRC stated that they noticed transfer of YSRC votes to TDP bundles, which was later re-transferred. Demanding the votes be counted again, they alleged that there might be irregularities during the counting

BJP wont join hands with any Dravidian party, says K Annamalai
Politics He was reportedly speaking at a meeting with BJP functionaries in Chennais Aminjakarai, where he said that the party will grow if it stands alone in Tamil Nadu. Tamil Nadu Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President K Annamalai reportedly said in a meeting on Friday, March 17, that the party wouldnt join hands with any of the Dravidian parties in any election. He was speaking at a meeting with BJP functionaries in Chennais Aminjakarai, days after unrest surfaced between the BJP and AIADMK (All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam). Tension has been brewing between the parties ever since BJPs Tamil Nadu IT wing head CT Nirmala Kumar quit and joined the AIADMK In the meeting, Annamalai reportedly stated that the party will grow if it stands alone in Tamil Nadu. He also said that BJP doesn't want to face the polls with the support of any Dravidian party in the upcoming elections. He further added that he would resign as State President of the party and continue as a party cadre if the party decides to forge any political alliance in Tamil Nadu. Annamalai also sought an appointment with Prime Minister Narendra Modi regarding this. It is to be noted that earlier this week, Annamalai reportedly said that the AIADMK is a senior party in NDA (National Democratic Alliance) and assured that BJP's alliance with AIADMK is intact. Rift inside the party As per reports, during the meeting, many BJP functionaries including Vanathi Srinivasan, Coimbatore South MLA and National President of the BJP Mahila Morcha, and the partys state Vice President Narayanan Tirupati attempted to get clarity from the party chief on his stance. Narayanan reportedly asked Annamalai to give an explanation for his speech, while Vanathi questioned what the reason was to discuss this in the partys state-level executive meeting instead of bringing it to the Central Committees notice. This unusual situation has prevailed in the alliance lately after many functionaries quit the BJP and joined AIADMK. Earlier this month, 13 members from the BJPs Tamil Nadu IT cell had quit, in a sudden jolt to the saffron party. The national leadership soon began damage control with party President JP Nadda and General Secretary in charge of Tamil Nadu, CT Ravi, initiating discussions with AIADMK's interim General Secretary Edappadi K Palaniswami.

Pilot project on the anvil for heart patients
State govt is all set to implement a programme to provide medical services to heart patients during golden hour VIJAYAWADA: The State government is set to implement an ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) programme to provide state-of-the-art medical services to people suffering from heart-related issues during golden hour. Lack of proper facilities at hospitals often leads to delay in investigating cardiac issues, further resulting in death. M Venkata Sundaraiah of G Konduru village in NTR district died while being shifted to a hospital in Vijayawada as the condition of his heart could not be assessed at hospitals near his village. According to official statistics, there are around 38 lakh people suffering from heart issues in the State and mortality rate among them is 32% per year. To prevent such deaths, the government is likely to enter into a pact with Chennai-based STEMI India by the end of March. The organisation has expanded its services in Tamil Nadu, Gujarat and Jharkhand. As a pilot project, the government will develop hospitals in Visakhapatnam, Kakinada, Vijayawada, Guntur, Tirupati, Kurnool and Anantapur as hub centres, while area and district hospitals, besides teaching hospitals with no cath labs, will be developed as spoke centres. Under phase-one of the pilot project, the government will spend Rs 120 crore to set up cath labs at government teaching hospitals in Kurnool and Kakinada, while it will purchase ECG machines and injections used for thrombolysis in bulk for hospitals that will be developed as spokes. Principal secretary (health) MT Krishna Babu explained, We will run the pilot project for three to four months and extend it to the entire State with the help of private hospitals in Arogyasri network. Of the total, 91 hospitals have cath labs. The pilot project will begin within three months after commencement of training for doctors and para-medical staff. We have experienced cardiologists in the State and will start the programme even before an MoU with STEMI India is signed. Under the programme, physicians and paramedical staff at spoke centres will be trained in treating patients with cardiac issues by conducting ECG tests. Doctors at spoke centres will do the ECG test for patients who complain of heart problems and send the reports electronically to hub hospitals. After taking suggestions from the expert, doctors at spoke centres will proceed with thrombolysis as even a delay of half hour can damage the cardiac muscle by 50%. Following this, health personnel will have 24 hours to shift the patient for further investigation or surgery, if needed, increasing the chances to save the patient. Elaborating, Krishna Babu said, We are taking measures to save people from heart-related deaths by developing government hospitals to serve them during the golden hour. Injections for thrombolysis, costing over Rs 30,000 each, are also being procured in bulk at an estimated price of Rs 20,000 for spoke centres.

Four tiger cubs found in Andhra, search for mother futile so far
Wildlife Officials said that if the efforts to trace the mother tigress yield no result, they would consider shifting the cubs to a zoo to protect them. IANS Andhra Pradesh Forest Department officials on Wednesday, March 8, continued their efforts to trace the mother of four tiger cubs found near a village in Nandyal district earlier on March 5. The month-old cubs have been kept at a veterinary hospital at Nallamalla Jungle Camp Bairluty where wildlife veterinarians are monitoring their health while forest officials continued their efforts to trace the mother. The cubs are said to be doing well. Veterinarians from the SV Zoological Park, Tirupati were closely monitoring their condition by checking their vitals. The cubs were being fed with milk and water. Forest officials attempted to leave the cubs near Atmakur forest on Monday night but with no trace of their mother in the vicinity, they brought them back to the hospital. As part of their efforts to locate mother tigress, the forest officials have installed camera traps. Villagers found the cubs abandoned on the outskirts of Pedda Gummadapuram villagers in Kothapalli mandal (block). After waiting for a while to see if their mother turns up, the villagers shifted the cubs to a room on a farm to protect them from predators and informed the forest officials. Atmakur divisional forest officer Alan Chong Teron and other officials reached the village and took custody of the cubs, who appeared weak. The forest officials believe that the mother tigress may have lost her way. The officials said if the efforts to trace the mother tigress yield no result, they will consider shifting the cubs to SV Zoological Park to protect them.
