Hi Friends,
We are planning for the trip to Srisailam in March. Now, as this area falls under the proposed Telengana state, will it be safe to visit the are now?

Some Andhra members will be able to advise better.

In my experience (travelling to areas that were considered dangerous), foreign tourists are never targeted, and such areas are normally really happy to see tourists.

Actually, I'm worried about the strikes and agitations of the political parties...

Mountain Goat, my assumption after some quick research, you are an Indian living in India or very familiar with it. So..

-Watch the news. As long as Telengana formation seems to be happening- which seems to be the way things are going, although there is a twist in the tale in the Rajya Sabha- there will be few bandhs, strikes etc in Telangana; the Seemandhra area will be hit with strikes, as it is today. If the situation reverses, and Telangana seems out or inordinately delayed or some amendments to the Bill are introduced that anger Telangana folk, then things will be the other way round.
- Barring Osmania University in Hyderabad in the not so recent past, there has been little violence throughout this mess. Even at the height of the trouble until now, life in Hyderabad was close to normal after the first few weeks. Even bandhs etc had limited impact after the first few were called.
- There is more violence in Parliament in Delhi than in Telangana as of today, over the issue.
- The bandhs and strikes have been somewhat disruptive at worst, nothing more. And Telangana strikes have concentrated almost completely on Hyderabad and its approaches (road, rail) even at the height of the excitement.
-Srisalam is not that long a drive from Hyderabad, and is not really a hot spot for trouble.
-Right now there is no trouble at all in Telangana over the bifurcation; in fact, there were celebrations after the Lok Sabha fraud.

In your place I would stay updated on the news, but, if things stand as they do today, I wouldn't be thinking of cancelling my trip at all.

Thank You Captain,
I was just wondering whether to book my rail tickets or not...
I'll book my tickets and if the situation gets worse I'll cancel it...

The Rajya Sabha has also cleared the Telangana Bill since I posted last. So chances of trouble in Telangana are even lower now.

Srisailam is in Kurnool District which would be part of the residual state of Andhra Pradesh or Seemandhra as its been called unofficially now. Don't know what it will be called after the split.

Please do not expect to experience any disruptions. Elections are slated to be then, so that may contribute to some tensions. The troubles that could have been expected are now over as the state is going to be split.
