  • 2007
    Age 43
    Bhuma was the first leader to propound the theory of 'Rayala Telangana' in January 2007 as a solution to state division.
    More Details Hide Details He said if the partition is must, Rayala seema should be with Telangana Only and not with Andhra. He argues that Rayalaseema people are culturally and emotionally similar to Telangana than Andhra. He would rather stay with unified Rayala Telangana than that of Seemandhra. He says The Rayalaseema people were cheated by the coastal Andhra leaders previously. He cites the example of the historical 'Sribagh pact' of 16 November 1937 between the gentlemen of the two reasons. The pact was sustained to a 'torn paper' only as coastal leaders never withstood to its provisions. Unlike Coastal Andhra, Rayalaseema has its own history of draughts and backwardness. There is a similarity to the region of Telangana as both the areas were once ruled by the Nizams. As far as backwardness is concerned, Telangana and Rayalaseema are running parallel as most of the natural resources are being utilised by the coastal region. When 90% of cultivable land is being drained with river water resources in Coastal Andhra... only 45% is being irrigated in the rest of the areas. Supporting to his theory of Rayala Telangana he also recalls that prior to the name of Rayalaseema the four districts of Bellary (now in Karnataka), Ananthapur, Cuddapah, and Kurnool were being called as 'Ceded districts' as they were ceded to the English Army by the Nizam (in a gratitudic action as the British helped him in the war against Kingdom of Mysore).

    Age 40
    He never betrayed the cadre, But unfortunate of him a lot of cadre betrayed Bhuma in 2004 elections.
    More Details Hide Details Bhuma is such an ardent hard worker that if he insists on any subject matter of public, he never quits without the work getting completed or sanctioned by the government. This exact character of him is being termed as 'bhumaism'. The 'autonagar' development is one such an example. There has been a longstanding demand for the construction of new railway line from Yerraguntla to Nandyal. This had been always a pending project until Bhuma takes the initiation. Even in politics he could not compromise with the heads of TDP. Bhuma was on an opinion that party did not serve him as he served to the party when it was in hardships. He thought that within the party, he was not given enough priorities as his rivals enjoyed. When the party was in ruling, he didn't get any support to serve the needs of his cadre. Bhuma used to tell his ingratitude about the party to his near and dears, and sometimes expressed openly. When the time ripened Bhuma couple came out of the party criticising the leadership. He held the open meeting with his core cadre of Allagadda and discussed in depth for the future of his political movements. He along with his wife Shobha Nagi reddy joined Chiranjeevi's "Praja Rajyam Party".
    However, he had a major setback in politics as he was defeated by Gangula Prathap Reddy from Allagadda assembly constituency in 2004 elections. His wife Shobharani being elected as MLA two times from Allagadda constituency had to contest against her wish as an MP candidate from Nandyal and lost to congress candidate SPY Reddy. In the wake of the emergence of much publicised Praja Rajyam party by Cine hero Chiranjeevi they resigned from the TDP on 4 July 2008 and joined the newly created Praja Rajyam Party led by Chiranjeevi on 20 August 2008.
