"Total Telangana" says KCR or be Prepared for a big war

K Chandrasekhar Rao of Telangana Rastra Samithi (TRS) has come back again in sending out clear signals to the Congress in the centre stating that party and region is getting ready for next war on the formation of  "Total Telangana".kcr-smiling

He has already mentioned that the bill should /need to be passed in the Assembly and Parliament as it is in the current form with no changes.  KCR has also mentioned that he has already planned to meet Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh to ensure that there is no autonomy in the Hyderabad administration.

He has already taken up some major points saying:

  • Why should the state be headed by the Governor?
  • Why should the law and order in Hyderabad be different from the other region of Telangana?

He has made it clear that this was not the bill that they had been fighting for many years.  There are several provision which needs amended to be done in the bill.  He is not in favour of any kind of sharing policy on water, funds and appointment of jobs in government sector and disagree with sharing of power and capital.

TJAC Chairman Prof M Kodandaram is going to organise a dharna at Indira Park after January 3  when the assembly is back to discuss on T Bill and also make it clear that they will not accept or go hand dows with the current provisions.

KCR has made it clear that during the regime, Telangana people have suffered a lot and lost their jobs. So why should now they be paid pension for the people who have already retired and also jobs, after the state is formed.

Seemandhra BJP leaders not in support of Telangana formation

BJP has already expressed their interest in creation and support for the Telangana state. However, with BJP unit in Seemandhra region is not in support for the same.  They plan to launch an agitation in opposing the terms and conditions in bifurcatin of the state.

BJP national executive member and former MLA Kambhampati Haribabu said that Seemandhra BJP leaders are planning to create  a list of the injustices that may occurs with the state formation and how the region will be affected.

However, it has been made clear by the central leadership of BJP that all their concerns will be addressed and also think on how it can be handle before the state is formed.

One such concern that has been raised by the BJP unit is Polavaram Project.  As as part of Khammam district will merged when the dam is built and Bhadrachalam project for which they Seemandhra are fighting from long time.

Accordingly Telangana, India's 29th state, would cover 10 of the 23 districts of undivided Andhra Pradesh. The city of Hyderabad would serve as the joint capital of the two successor states for a period of 10 years.

Divide and Rule– Indian Politics

Let’s look back in the history of India, way back 500 or more, you will always see that in order to gain power or prosper formula that has been adapted and still in use is Divide and Rule”.  Be it a Empire or Province or British Rule which has been in India from long time, everyone followed the “Divide and Rule” policy in order gain power.

Let’s look from Empire & Province history, the kings and province authority always displayed a inequality between the have and have-not’s.  When they need some work or anything that need to accomplished they used to get the have not and get them the best of class anything they would want.  So here you go “give the best to a person, he is with you”  - Divide and Rule.

With British ruling us for 200 years, they played the similar method and they never said “NO” to it.  They knew that if they need to rule on India, then this is only policy that will help them to gain control the country.  So they lure with gifts and packages to the king’s and made them fight against their friend or other state.  After sometime British colonies controlled both of them.

With India gaining Independence in 1947, the first “Divide and Rule” policy came into being with separation of Pakistan from India. Then till date we have seen all kinds of politics across the country.  “Divide and Rule” has played a very critical role in India and its politics.

Let take a look at some of the past happenings:

  • Dividing India into two parts (Pakistan & India) – This was done on religion bases.
  • All our elections are fought based on caste, creed and religion.
  • Big gap between the poor and rich.  All the lure and packages are fully executed for “haves” and in process for “have not's”.
  • Minority based politics, where they consider any other religion other than Hinduism is vote bank and they need to lure them.. – (Brahmin, Lingayat, Muslim, Dalit)
  • Parties targeting each other not on development, but on their ideology which again breaks down to caste / religion. (BJP being an Hindu dominant party, All other parties do not have religion ideology)
  • Division of state just before the election. To lure people for vote bank politics.
  • Announcement of new schemes just before the election for everyone on paper, whereas the old schemes are yet to reached to the have-not’s.  “Have” do get their share of schemes executed.

Many more, when you look around your state, city or country who will find even we are part or execute or do the same within our daily routine life.

Divide and Rule – Indian Politics – 2 – Focus on Political Parties (Coming Soon)

29th Indian State in row of Formation : Telangana

Finally after a long wait for 50+ years, Telangana going to get separated and form the 29th State of India.  With going back to 2009, where then Home minister P Chindabaram declaring that the state of “Telangana” will be formed soon. 

In the last few months there was fast action taken on this decision and finally with both the Congress and Working Committee giving a nod for the “Telangana” a state formation. With this decision it has been mixed response from the state, with many people in “Telangana” region celebrating across the districts and capital.

However, Andhra and Rayalseema people are not ready to divided the state and Minister Sadashiva Rao, Congress Party has already resigned from his post.  CM Kiran Reddy has also made it clear that he is not in support of the division of the state.  He will not like to preside as CM for the two state. 

With a total of 10 districts within Telangana state and Hyderabad being a common capital for both the region for next 10 years.  Congress is backing on the vote bank politics for the upcoming state and centre elections.

Hundreds of paramilitary soldiers have been deployed in Andhra Pradesh to prevent any violent protests.

Last time the new states were formed in 2000: Chhattisgarh from eastern Madhya Pradesh; Uttarakhand from  Uttar Pradesh, and Jharkhand from Bihar's southern districts. With the Telangana getting a nod for the formation, the protests have begun in other region which have been demanding a separate state which includes Bundelkhand region in the central state of Madhya Pradesh, Vidarbha in western Maharashtra state and Gorkhaland in the eastern West Bengal state.

However, due to state and centre election on the verge, Congress has take up this decision, it may take around 5-8 months for the state to be formed. The new state is still far from reality – the decision still has to be ratified by local lawmakers and implemented.
