In upcoming telangana polls, the mahila empowerment party under the leadership of its national president, Dr. Nowhera shaik, addressed key issues highlighting their  commitment to addressing these challenges :

Telangana is once again gearing up for a closely contested election, with the Mahila empowerment party (mep) working on reshaping its strategies and team under the leadership of dr.nowhera shaik to counter challenges posed by both the bharat rashtra samithi,congress and various regional parties. This battle is not just about political ideologies but also about local concerns that hold significant weight in the minds of voters. Let’s take a closer look at the major issues that could influence the outcome of this essential nail bitting contest.

As the telangana state assembly election approaches on30th  november, political campaigns are in full swing, but the state still grapples with several pressing issues that have remained unaddressed over the years. However, there are several critical issues that have persisted without effective resolution in the state, impacting millions of lives.

Agricultural Distress:

The challenges faced by Telangana’s agriculture sector, which include crop pricing, inadequate irrigation facilities, and insufficient government support, have led to persistent agricultural distress.During the monsoon 2lakh 22thousand 250 acres of crops were damaged in the state. Mainly maize 1,29,446 acres , paddy 72,709 acres , mango 8,865 acres, other crops 17,238 acres were damaged.

Farmers often expect comprehensive support from the government in the form of subsidies, access to credit, and timely assistance during crop failures. The effectiveness of government support schemes can vary, and there is room for improvement in terms of their reach and impact.


One of the major concerns is the high rate of youth unemployment. Many young people in Telangana, especially recent graduates, struggle to find suitable employment opportunities. Unemployment is a complex issue that requires a coordinated effort from government businesses, and educational institutions to ensure that the workforce is equipped with the necessary skills and that suitable job opportunities are available to address the state’s employment challenges.

Dr.Nowhera shaik recently addressed about skill development, government employment schemes , Entrepreneurship promotion in the state to cut unemployment rate which will be definitely done by MEP.

Women’s Empowerment:

Promoting women’s empowerment in Telangana is not only a matter of social justice but also a key driver of economic and social progress. According to report 20,865 cases of secual assault against women were registered in 2021 in telangana, against 17,791 in 2020 and 18,394 cases in 2019.

Ensuring the safety of women is a fundamental component of women’s empowerment. Measures to prevent and respond to violence against women, along with fostering a culture of respect and gender sensitivity, are critical also strengthening and enforcing legal protections for women, including property and inheritance rights, is necessary to ensure their economic and social security.

Efforts to promote women’s empowerment in Telangana should be comprehensive and involve collaboration between government agencies, civil society organizations, and the private sector. By addressing these issues, Telangana can create a more inclusive and equitable society that benefits from the full potential of all its residents, regardless of gender we wish to see the change.

Infrastructure development:

Infrastructure development in Telangana is essential for fostering economic growth, improving living standards, and enhancing the overall quality of life for its residents. This includes both urban and rural infrastructure. Upgrading and expanding road networks, improving public transportation, and modernizing railways are crucial for connectivity and economic development. Ensuring a reliable and sustainable energy supply, along with the development of renewable energy sources, is vital for meeting the state’s growing energy demands.

Infrastructure development in Telangana should be aligned with the state’s economic and social development goals. It is an investment in the state’s future, fostering economic growth, improving the quality of life for its residents.

Potential of Solar and wind energy:

Telangana has a vast solar potential estimated at 20.41 GW and a wind energy potential of 4.2 GW. Telangana has a total installed capacity of 4+GW renewable energy power, including solar energy at 3,621 MW and wind energy of 128 MW besides contribution from other renewable energy sources. The use of solar and wind energy is a sustainable and environmentally friendly approach to address energy needs. Telangana, like many regions, can benefit significantly from an increased focus on renewable energy sources.

Government should use the vast potential offered by mother nature. To harness the full potential of solar and wind energy, the Telangana government should prioritize renewable energy development, invest in infrastructure, and create a supportive regulatory environment.


Telangana is one of the most populous states in India. The population has been steadily growing, and it is estimated to be over 39 million people as of 2021. Telangana is witnessing a rapid urbanization trend. Major cities like Hyderabad, Warangal, and Nizamabad are growing, attracting people from rural areas in search of employment and better opportunities.

The majority of the population in Telangana practices Hinduism. There are also significant Muslim and Christian communities, as well as smaller populations of Sikhs, Jains, and Buddhists. Like many parts of India, Telangana has had concerns related to gender imbalance. Efforts are being made to improve the sex ratio and empower women through various initiatives. The state’s economy is diverse, with agriculture, industry, and services sectors. Agriculture is a significant contributor to the economy, and the state is known for its rice production. Hyderabad, the state capital, is a major IT and business hub.


Obviously, purely Hyderabad centric policies of the governments is the main reason for its slow growth. They see interior telangaana as just some rural hinterland producing agri-outputs, water sourcing region , that’s it !! As some prominent bureaucrats like Sanjaya Baru garu points out “Eastern parts of Telangana can be developed as “Ruhr of Deccan” or “Ruhr of South india” with a large continuous group of urban centers , crisscrossing of rivers and green cover of Dandakaranya accompanying the coal-based and allied industries along with renewable energy corridor. There is no dearth of hospitality once ecological and historical tourist spots re properly conserved.

Well what happens in next 20 years is highly impossible to guess but Telangana would shine. Just remember, you will hear this name, Telangana, many more times.
