Andhra is the Reason Behind Every Bad Thing in Telangana

  • Telangana lost so much land for the industries. It is all because of Andhra people.
  • All the educational institutes are started by the Andhra People, and it did not give any scope for the Telangana people.
  • Andhra people are coming to Hyderabad and doing business here, and robbing our place.
  • ...
  • ...
  • Someone in Telangana failed in the exam. It is because, Andhra teachers intentionally failed those students.
  • Someone is suffering from fever. It is spread by the Andhra people.
  • ..
  • ..
  • and many more

Telangana people are so much aggressive in criticizing Andhra people for everything. But, they are not criticizing Andhra people for one thing, which they should.

in the initial days, the Telangana movement was sponsored by the Coastal Andhra real estate people. By bringing the Telangana movement, the real estate between Vijayawada and Guntur, and in Visakhapatnam has grown up like anything. The prices of the land and many other things have increased more than 10-20 times in just 10 years. There was direct correlation between the movement in Telangana and the prices in Coastal Andhra.

The real estate people show stars in the afternoon saying, We get Telangana in few months. After that, Andhra would get capital between Vijayawada and Guntur, where Government has 10,000 acres of land. There are only two other places in the entire Seemandhra where Government has 10,000 acres of land at one place. So, the capital would surely come here only. Once the state is separated, you cannot buy even an inch of land. So, better buy the land now itself. This way, they will show you heaven in your palm.

With the Telangana movement, Telangana people are suffering like anything, and Andhra people are using the same thing to increase the prices of everything in coastal Andhra. The beneficiaries of the Telangana movement are Andhra people. One person was saying, Andhra people are very good at doing business. Whatever may be the situation, they will do the "appropriate" business, and there is no need to worry about them. We need to worry only about the people of Telangana. Unfortunately, Telangana people are not realizing it, and they are not listening to others.

CM From Telangana

One of the main points of having separate state for Telangana is, it is ruled by the people from Andhra area, and not from the Telangana region.

In the Independent India, most of the Prime Ministers and "Super" Prime Ministers are from Uttar Pradesh. But, consistently Uttar Pradesh has been in the bottom of the Human Development Index and in every other measure. Does it say anything to the supporters of the Telangana movement?

The rule of having CM from one region and Deputy CM from another region is not at all constitutional. This rule in the gentleman agreement may work only for the national parties like Congress. But, it does not work for the other parties. The main leaders who headed the regional parties are from Seemandhra including NTR, Nadendla Bhaskara rao, Chandrababu, Dr.Jayaprakash Narayan and Chiranjeevi. When they get majority in the assembly, why would they give CM post to someone from Telangana? Does it make any sense? NTR and Chandrababu did not have Deputy CM for their own reasons. When NTR was the CM, initially Nadendla Bhaskara Rao was number two in the party, and later on Chandrababu became number two. Both are from the Seemandhra region. Chiranjeevi got only 18 seats in the last general elections. Out of 18, it got only 2 seats in the Telangana region. For hypothetical purposes, let's assume, it had contested in the elections with the manifesto of United Andhra, it would have got many seats in Seemandhra and 0 seats in Telangana. In that case, how can they give Deputy CM to person from Telangana? Let's suppose, if it gets only one seat in Telangana, do they have to give Deputy CM to that one lone MLA?

Another thing that I could never understand was, the definition of a Telanganite. The leaders like NTR, Nadendla Bhaskara Rao, Chandrababu, Dr.Jayprakash Narayan and Chiranjeevi had stayed/have been staying in Telangana area for more than 15 years. Still, they are not considered as Telanganites. The present CM Kiran Kumar Reddy was born and brought up in Hyderabad. Still, he is not considered as Telanganite. But, KCR who hailed from Bobbili is considered as "pure" Telanganite.

This rule of Gentlemen agreement is not constitutional and is not valid in any court, and this rule is applicable only to Congress and to no other party.

Telangana 1969 - Sending Employees Back

In 1969, during the Telangana Movement, one bill was passed by the Andhra Pradesh Government. That bill says, all the employees from Andhra region, who are in Telangana would be moved back to Andhra region. All the posts in Telangana would be filled by the employees of the Telangana region only. If no suitable person is available, then the post would be kept as vacant, and will not be filled by people from Andhra region. This issue has created a big impact mainly for the teachers in the Telangana region.

Who lost by this bill?

If the teachers in schools and colleges are moved back to Andhra region, and if the corresponding posts in Telangana are kept vacant, it is a disadvantage only to the people of Telangana, and never for Andhra region. If Telangana people do not study, they only will suffer. After few years, if the people from Telangana do not get jobs (because of the lack of education), they cry on Andhra people saying, they had stolen their jobs.

Telangana - L.K.Advani

After L.K.Advani started talking about Telangana in his Jana Chetana Yatra, people started criticizing him by pointing out BJP resolution in Kakinada. I don't accept their criticism.

In 1998, in Kakinada, BJP passed a resolution of 1 vote, 2 states. They promised that, they would give separate Telangana, if it comes to power. But, when it came to power in 1998 and in 1999, it did not give Telangana. Because, Chandrababu Naidu was giving support and he did not want to separate the state.

For any person, their first priority is always sustainment and their promises comes only after that. If they cannot even sustain, there is no question of fulfilling the promises. Without Chandrababu, they could not form the government. If they don't take the support of Chandrababu, they cannot fulfill any promise, leave alone Telangana. By taking the support of Chandrababu, they could fulfill many promises except Telangana.

I would not criticize L.K.Advani for the above reason. But, I criticize him for the below reasons.

During 1999 elections, L.K.Advani said, there was no plan to give the separate Telangana state. The reason he gave was, for all other new states, the capital was far away from their places. Whereas, for Andhra Pradesh, Capital is in the middle of Telangana. So, there is no need of giving separate state.

He understands the importance of the Capital. Now, why is he taking the capital away from Seemandhra? Why is his point no longer valid now?

The following is the excerpts from his auto-biography, My Country My Life:

Aware of the division passions that this issue (formation of new states) had evoked in the past, and aware also of the strong possibility of similar demands arising in the future, I enunciated a sound guiding principle to go ahead in this matter: for Parliament to consider any specific proposal for the formation of a new state, the legislative assembly of the parent state should adopt an enabling resolution to give its consent.

Now, L.K.Advani is demanding to pass the bill in the Parliament without passing in the assembly. Is it not directly contradicting to what he wrote in his book?

While replying to the debate in Parliament after the enactment of the legislations for the reorganization of the three states, I said, 'No one party should claim credit for the creation of the states and I would commend both Houses of Parliament and all political parties, particularly the main opposition party (Congress), and constituents of the ruling alliance (NDA), for the smooth passage of the Bills'.

This was a good example of how consensus-building, rather than confrontation, can yield the desired results.

Now, what is he doing? Is he building consensus or confrontation?

Eventhough, I have lot of respect for L.K.Advani, I could not support him on this issue.

The Root Cause of the Telangana Movement

There is only one person who is the root cause of the Telangana Movement. He is Nara Chandrababu Naidu. Because of his mistakes, now Andhra Pradesh is suffering.

Had Chandrababu developed Kuppam, Chittoor or Tirupathi, instead of Hyderabad, nobody would have bothered about asking separate state. Even if Telangana people had asked, it would have been given immediately, and there would not have been any fights. [Telangana people say that, even before Hyderabad was developed, there were movements for the separate state.] It is purely Chandrababu's mistake for developing Hyderabad, eventhough, he very well knew that, there was Telangana movement in 1969. He thought, it would not come back again, because, in 1972, when Andhra people agreed for the separate state, Telangana people rejected it.

Because of Chandrababu's mistakes, now people are suffering.

Telangana Movement Should Continue to Get Separate Telangana

If the Telangana Movement continues the same way for the next few years, then they will definitely get Telangana with unanimous support.

Andhra people's main worry is, they do not want to lose the developed area (Hyderabad). If the Telangana movement continues in the same way, then Hyderabad becomes undeveloped. After that, Andhra people will not have any objection in separating from Telangana and Hyderabad, because, there is no gain by staying together. Since the Telangana supporters want only separate state, and absolutely nothing else, so, they can easily get separate Telangana by continuing the movement the same way. After continuing the Telangana movement for few years, even if they do not want to have a separate state, Andhra people will start Jai Andhra movement, to have separate Andhra.

For those who do not know the history, in 1969, Telangana movement came and after suppressing it, in 1972, Jai Andhra movement came. If KCR and Kodandaram continues the same way, either they will get separate Telangana or there will be Jai Andhra movement in couple of years.

Quote of the Day - PM Not Part of the Selection Committee of Lokpal

On the suggestion of not including the Prime Minister in the selection committee of the Lokpal, Dr.Jayaprakash Narayan says,

A man or woman who can be trusted with a nuclear button and accreditation of war and peace, if you cannot trust that person to be merely a part of selection process for an authority, we are being little unreasonable.
