People may confuse Sri Bagh and gentleman`s Agreement. While the Sri Bhag agreement exists between the leaders of Coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema, the gentlemen`s agreement exists between the leaders of Andhra and Telangana. In 1956, when the states were reorganized on the basis of language, it was proposed to merge with the State of Andhra the Telugu speaking regions of the state of Hyderabad. The heads of state of Hyderabad feared this merger, so the gentleman`s Agreement was signed on February 20, 1956 by heads of state of the states of Hyderabad and Andhra at Hyderabad House in New Delhi, under the scope of Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, in order to protect the rights of the Telangana region. It was an agreement to develop the Rayalaseema region on an equal footing with the coastal areas and to develop all the regions before the formation of the province of Andhra. On November 16, 27, 1937, the rulers of the two regions of Sribagh, the home of Kashinathuni Nageshwara Rao, a well-known owner of the media, founders of Andhra Patrika and Amrutanjan, pleaded for an agreement. The committee discussed the conditions that must be met if Rayalaseema were to cooperate with the coastal counties to claim a province of Andhra. This agreement was known as the sribagh or Sribagh agreement. The Sribagh Pact was an agreement between the political leaders of the coastal regions of Andhra and Rayalaseema during the separated Andhra on 16 November 1937. Historically, the Sribagh Agreement has been an important topic for the people of the Rayalaseema region with regard to development issues due to the attitude of the Anhra leaders at the time. At that time, the people of Rayalaseema, more educational than the districts of Circar, wanted the university`s headquarters to be in their area. Andhra Mahasabha, detained in Anantapur in 1927, decided that the university`s headquarters should be transferred to Anantapur.
The Senate of Andhra University decided, 35 to 20, to make Anantapur the seat of the university. In 1937, the leaders of the Anhra Mahasabha decided in Vijayawada to eliminate the differences between the two regions. Rayalaseema executives felt that Rayalaseema needed protection with regard to cabinet formation, irrigation, capital, etc. A commission has been set up to investigate these issues. The seats of legislative power should not be determined on the basis of population, but on the basis of area. This proposal was made because the population density in Rayalaseema was lower than on the coast. The main points of the pact were: Since the british acquired southern India at the end of the 18th. By the century, many regions speaking telugu had been merged with the state of Madra. The first meeting of the Rayalaseema Mahasabha was held on January 28, 1934 in Madras. It was chaired by Nemali Pattabhirama Rao of Cuddapah.
It was inaugurated by S. Satyamurti, a Tamil leader opposed to the separate mood of Andhra. The conference opposed attempts by members of the Coastal Districts Congress to extend andhra University`s jurisdiction over Rayalaseema and called for the establishment of Sri Venkateswara University in Tirupati. The second meeting of the conference was held in Cuddapah during the first week of September 1935. .
