If the Govt. of Andhra Pradesh wanted to protect those who are raising fish tanks on Kolleru Lake near Denduluru and Unguturu in West Godavari District, it should have either taken up the matter in High Court / Supreme Court, or issued a suitable Government Order to the Divisional Forest Officer, to be lenient, and then face the court, when the matter reaches them. Why Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu is encouraging Denduluru MLA to insult Government Officers who do their duty? Earlier, the same Denduluru MLA is reported to have beaten an MRO handling sand reaches. Mr. Naidu has appointed an Enquiry Committee to investigate into the matter. What happened for it? Earlier, Mr. Naidu has ranked the Denduluru MLA, as a Top Performer ! Top performer in what?
DeccanChronicle.Com, Vijayawada, print edition dated 17th April 2016 (Sunday), Page 5, relating to State News page, has one Report about a Meeting held at Eluru:--
PISCICULTURE KICKS UP CONTROVERSY
(16th April 2016. Eluru.)
Context: Vigilance and Monitoring Committee Meeting presided over by Eluru M.P., Mr. Maganti Venkateswara Rao.
First, the Unguturu M.L.A. Shri Ganti Veeranjaneyulu expressed his grievance that Forest Officials were objecting to pisciculture at Poolla village.
The reply given by the Divisional Forest Officer in-charge Shri G. Shivasankar Reddy, and the reply of Denduluru M.L.A., and Government whip Chintamaneni Prabhakar, are worth noting.
"...Responding to it (Unguturu M.L.A.'s grievance), Divisional Forest Officer In-charge, G. Sivasankar Reddy said that they were not allowing any tanks against the norms for taking up fish culture in the area and added that they were not against any traditional fishing. He said that nearly 57 cases were booked so far, and added that they were facing in contempt of court cases if they were lenient towards commercial pisciculture in the area. ..."
"...Denduluru MLA and Government whip Chintamaneni Prabhakar wondered as to why trouble was coming up only in their area and asked the forest official not to trouble the farmers. He even asked the Official to protect the interest of the farmers if he wanted to continue to work and asked him to go away. ..."
This news seems to have been omitted to be reported by the pro-Government Telugu Newspapers and T.V. channels.
However, Sakshi Telugu Newspaper published some verbatim sentences of the Denduluru M.L.A. and the Forest Officer. These are worth noting. (Note to readers: I am not a supporter of Sakshi Paper or Mr. Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy. Since I am unable to trace the news from the other two newspapers, I am writing the news from Sakshi paper.).

(Denduluru MLA:-) : "...సెలవులోకి వెళ్లిపో. మీ ఇష్టమొచ్చినట్టు పనిచేస్తే కుదరదు. మేం చెప్పినట్టు చేయాలంతే...". Approx. English: "...Go on leave. It will not suit if you work as you like. You should do what we ask you to do, that is all. ...".

English: "Forest Officials should act in favour of the Government. You are coming as a hindrance to catching fish in Kolleru. Both in Centre and the State, there are our Governments. If you act as you like, how ?...".
(Eluru DFO in-charge:--) "...నిబంధనల ప్రకారం జిరాయితీ భూముల్లో చేపల చెరువులు నిషిద్ధమని, సంప్రదాయ సాగుకు అభ్యంతరం లేదు కానీ ఫిష్ ట్యాంకులు వేస్తే ఊరుకునేది లేదు..." Approx. Engl: "...As per regulations, fish tanks are prohibited in zirayat lands. There is no objection to traditional culture. If fish tanks are put, not going to remain silent. ...".

ybrao-a-donkey's humble comments. वैबीराव एक गधे के विनम्र राय . వైబీరావ్ గాడిద వినమ్ర వాణి. You have every right to differ with me. I respect your right. आपको मेरे मत से भिन्न राय रखने के संपूर्ण हक है। मै उस अधिकार को परिपूर्ण रूप से गौरव देता हुँ. మీకు, మీ భిన్నమైన అభిప్రాయాన్ని కలిగిఉండే సంపూర్ణ హక్కు ఉంది. దానిని ఎంతో నేను గౌరవిస్తాను. However, pl. examine this donkey's views also. परन्तु एस गधे के दृष्टिकोण को भी अनुशीलन कीजिये. కానీ ఈ గాడిద దృష్టికోణాన్ని కూడ ఓర చూపుతో కంటజూడుమీ, క్రీగంట జూడమీ.
1. Is the news not worthy of being printed in the Top Two Telugu Newspapers? One of the two newspapers claims that it is "dammu unna patrika" (newspaper with courage).
2. What are the views of our beloved Chief Minister, Mr. Nara Chandra Babu Naidu about this Eluru Meeting? Does he support the Denduluru MLA who went on insulting the DFO, who is just discharging his duty as a public servant? When Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu ranks the performance of TDP MLAs, will he rank the Denduluru MLA as No. 1 ?
