Penta-coastals call for separate nation

Just what Samuel Reddy would have wanted too.

While the so called "Samaikhya Andhra " movement is largely driven by Andhra imperialism, jittery at losing control of their "colony" - the hand of the church is very much active in stoking sedition at every available opportunity.

I believe that the Telangana cause is just. However, there is match fixing going on at present between the TRS, Congress(Italian) and Samuel Reddy Congress.

The Congress has brought upon many calamities upon the nation - facilitating partition, bringing Punjab to the brink of secession, encouraging Bangladeshi Moslem infiltration into Assam and West Bengal etc. I hope their dirty politics does not end up creating a huge calamity in A.P.

BTW, Sushma Swaraj's tactless statement regarding the Telangana bill
in Parliament is not helping the BJP's position in that state.

Just like BJP sacrificed BSY in Karnataka sitting on moral high ground on corruption and lost Karnataka for 5 years in the process and definitely half of the Lok sabha sears. Just like BJP instead of cobbling up a govt in Delhi gave all the worlds exposure to AAPtards and there by will be loosing half the Delhi lok sabha seats to AAP. Similarly the 'stateless' leaders in Delhi want to give Telangana away and loose except a couple all seats in Telangana to Kangress. In Seemandhra they will be a zero. Besides Telangana may be genuine but this is not the way to bring about the bill.

BJP lost Karnataka after showing BSY the door. BJP gave crucial oxygen to APP instead they should have cobbled up a govt and then recommended re-elections. Similarly they should not support Telengana bill now and gift all 42 seats to the TRS+Cong+Jagan combination. That is what will happen. BJP should oppose and look fresh in 3 months and settle amicably.

Telangana cause may be just but it is highly unjust to divide the state of Andhra Pradesh, as is being done now, for political reasons in a highly arbitrary manner, throwing fairness to the winds. There was never any attempt to arrive at a consensus, which is palatable to both the regions. The terms of division as proposed by the so-called GoM now puts the Seemandhra people at a highly disadvantageous position. There is very little for them in the Telangana bill. The present unrest among the Seemandhras is due to the fact that the Telangana Bill is loaded heavily against them.

The Congress is doing it now at breakneck speed for its own selfish reasons. Why not wait for a few more months, when the BJP government will surely make the Telangana state happen? Once the passions come down, calmness is restored in both the regions and talks are initiated, a consensus will certainly emerge. Obviously, the terms of separation will be less attractive for the Telangana region, if the separation is postponed to a later date. It is for this reason that the belligerent TRS party is talking of war, should the bill be stalled now.

If the separation had taken place in 1969 after Channa Reddy’s Telangana agitation, the Seemandhras would not have objected to it. The Seemandhras did not stand in the way of the formation of the Telangana state at that time. In fact, the Seemandhras agitated in 1972 for a separate Andhra state and have not bothered to claim Hyderabad. Indira Gandhi stood in the way of the separation of the state in both the instances.

In my opinion, Samikyandhra has become a dead issue in the present day context. The politicians - KCR deserves to be commended for single-handedly raising the temperature to the boiling point - have managed to vitiate the atmosphere. Basically, it is all about Hyderabad, which has undergone tremendous development during the 9-year rule of Chandra Babu Naidu. People from the Seemandhra region expect to be compensated for the loss of Hyderabad, among other things.

How much truth is there in the accusations of looting of Telangana by the so-called Andhra imperialists? This issue needs to be addressed at the time of separation, whenever it takes place. Otherwise, they will carry the stigma forever.

I agree with you that this confrontational method of bifurcating the state is wrong. It is deliberate showmanship that is creating ill will. Justice must be done to Telangana.
It was possible under Vajpayee when Uttarakhand, Jharkhand, Chattisgarh were created - but for the NDA's dependence on C.B Naidu and the power broker Venkiah Naidu, who it must be said - speaks well, but is also corrupt - relatively very minor corruption compared to Samuel Reddy, but corruption nevertheless. Venkiah is incapable of winning even a Municipal election anywhere in all of A.P. It is unfortunate that his manipulation is having an effect on the BJP. The same applies to Sushma Swaraj. At this time, C.B Naidu needs Modi and the BJP more than they need him. He shouldn't be allowed to dominate the agenda.

CVS Murthy, I disagree with your claim about development/investment by Andhras in Hyderabad. Hydrerabad was already a world class, cosmopolitan city with a well developed infrastructure under the Nizam (to give credit where it's due) before any Andhra landed there. Any development since independence was not a favour or charity to the city. The money came from central funds and state revenue - most of which is raised from Hyderabad. The only point that I agree with you on is that Telangana needs to be created amicably. The SeemAndhra politicians are no angels- this should be evident to anyone who is not brainwashed and has some common sense remaining.

KK92- I am not asking you to agree with me. You are entitled to hold your opinion on the subject just as I am free to hold mine.
1. There is never any doubt that Hyderabad has been the no.1 city in AP because of its infrastructure and strategic location. However, most of the modern day development took place after the 90s, when the liberalization was initiated.
2. Here, I quote from the Sri Krishna Committee report: The TDP rule, first under NTR and later by Chandrababu Naidu, was marked by two key transformations in the landscape of Hyderabad: first, NTR, riding on Telugu pride and identity turned the city into a cultural centre for Telugu speaking people by creating several institutions and cultural symbols celebrating Telugu language, culture and heritage. It was also during this time that several successful entrepreneurs from other regions migrated to Hyderabad. NTR also completed shifting of Telugu film industry from Chennai to Hyderabad, which brought many artists, technicians and investors to the city. Second, Naidu, who became Chief Minister in September 1995, aspired to make Hyderabad a world city, by making it an alternative destination to Bangalore for IT and ITES industry. Consequently, Hyderabad has now grown as the fifth largest centre after Bangalore, Mumbai, the National Capital Region, and Chennai.
3. With the successful resolution of the 1969 and 1972 stirs for the state division, people in the state of AP began to feel that the united AP is here to stay. In the last 3 decades of the previous millennium, there were no separatist agitations until KCR arrived on the scene.
4. If the Telugus from the Seemandhra region had any doubts about the possibility of the revival of an agitation for a separate Telangana state, they would have contributed much more to the development in other places like Vijayawada and Vizag in fields like the pharma industry, the film industry, health industry and the IT industry.
5. My point is that Hyderabad would have developed certainly but not at the cost of other cities in AP. The separation should have happened in the 70s itself and the picture of development in the Seemandhra areas would have been completely different.
6. Politicians in India are all the same, wherever they come from, especially the congress type. They are certainly no saints.

I am from Hyderabad. What you call "modern development", CVS Murthy is actually construction of ugly government buildings and malls on encroached land. There are investors in Hyd from all over the country - Marawaris, Gujaratis, Punjabis, Sindhis etc who have been there since the 1920's - none of them have expressed an imperial intent. Even granted the so called "entrepreneurship" of the Andhras, it is not charity, just an investment for which there have been fabulous returns. BTW, Telangana is not a separate country like Pakistan, so everyone's assets will be secure. The rage of the coastals is incited by the Pentacostals like Brother Anil Kumar Shastry.

KK92- I think you do not understand my view point. Investors would always look for returns and investments are never done for charitable purposes. In your own words, this should be evident to anyone who is not brainwashed and has some common sense remaining. Seemandhras are not the only people with money in this country. Hyderabad would have grown anyway but the investments made by Seemandhras would have been used for the development of their regions. Or you do not want to give them any credit or role at all in the development of Hyderabad? If yes, you must be knowing something, which the Sri Krishna Committee did not.

I believe that people from any part of India have the right to invest or live anywhere in the country without being molested - regardless of language, caste, region etc. I don't hate Andhras or anybody. However, I don't buy this Sri Krishna committee etc. This. "justice" has a very dubious history.

CVSMurty said...

KK92 - Interesting! Why use the word 'hate'? So, that's your problem! Hatred is not healthy!

karyakarta92 said...

CVS Murthy, Please read my comment again. I said I do NOT hate.
I used the word "hate" because, unfortunately it is very much in evidence on both sides of the divide - instigated by crooked politicians who are involved in Match fixing. Only the Kaangress will be the gainer - I wish the state could have been bifurcated in an amicable manner. In time though, I'm hoping there will be reconciliation, cooperation etc and people will see through the Congress conspiracy. Jai Telangana, Jai Andhra, Jai Bharat Mata. #Hindu #Unity ki Jai.
