- Jago Telangana wale, Bhago Andhra wale ( I’m not sure how the leader of a party can say say such insensible things .)
These are some of the new words, phrases that i’ve come across in the recent one week or so !! All of a sudden, there is talk of which region ( Andhra, Rayalaseema, Telangana ) one belongs to , where one’s roots are , is someone a settler or a localite ??? I’m not sure when this is going to end. Anything is possible especially in this age of MEDIA and with our GREAT LEADERS, anything is possible !!!! And that’s big my biggest fear .
I’m disappointed the way the whole situation is unfolding. It’s a complete chaos. Telangana, being such a sensitive issue, the authorities ( both Telganana leaders & the government ) should have been more proactive and taken measures to avoid this kind of an outburst. There is so much of bad blood now between the “For” and “Against” telangana people, I can’t even imagine what would the situation be like post Telangana.
There is not an iota of doubt in my mind that Telangana’s situation is a result of “Politics & Politicians” at it’s best and since it will be, yet again the same set of politicians ruling us, post Telangana, sensitive issues like “nativity, birth rights etc ” can easily be flared up and the MEDIA is always there to fan these sentiments further. Maharashtra is a classic example. Both Media and Shiv Sena have been responsible in instilling a fear in the minds of North Indian’s settled in Maharashtra. I hope a similar situation doesn’t arise.
Congress, TDP , TRS all political parties are to be equally blamed for the whole situation. Promises are made, compromised, reconcilled, broken all dependening on what’s beneficial for the party; what suits the party and the leader of the party. Telangana has always been an election issue rather than the people’s issue.
A demand for a separate state could have been more diplomatically without having to create a real division between the people. This leaves a bad taste in the mouth and we already know the bad taste will remain for a long long time.
