New Children needed : Internal India : Part-1

For the First time the Team of Hyderabad Rocker has decided to come up with an editorial on the Internal issues of India. We have been discussing about whether should we write or shouldn't we write about the New state request and the Telanagana issue and the other aspects under this belt.

Fine, lets get into the issue. Telanagana is one of the three demographical portions of the state of Andhra Pradesh. The other two being Andra and Rayalaseema. Telanagana which was formely the state of Hyderabad a princely state under the Nizam's self-rule came under the Indian Union after the military takeover in 1948, under the then home minister Sardar Vallabhai Patel.

In the Year 1953, after the death of Sri Potti Sriramulu, requesting a seaparate state for Telugu speaking people, On October-1-1953 Andhra State was formed with Kurnool as its capital. The Andhra State has got the parts from the Chennai Presidency state.In 1956-Nov-01, Andhra State was merged with the Telanaga and Andhra Pradesh was formed with Hyderabad as its capital. After the state of Andhra Pradesh has been formed there have been a couple of upheavals for a separate Telangana and "Jai Andhra" for a separate Andhra in the years 1969 and 1972 respectively.
Telangana, a demographic part of the Andhra Pradesh has 10 districts with a population of over 3 crore along with the state capital Hyderabad.

Now we discuss about the recent upheaval that has come up and that which has forced the UPA govt. to come up with a late night statement that they are in favor of giving away a separate Telangana.

KCR, the chief of TRS, former leader of TDP has separated to form TRS for the statehood of telangana, with TRS as a political party instead of a rights demanding organisation. TRS went to polls in 2004 with Congress as its ally and won a majority of seats in Telangana. But the process for the request of a new state was not started and thus TRS MP's and MLA's resigning from their posts.

This time KCR, who lost his grip in the state politics and Telangana as well, wanting to make a come back has started a fast-onto-death on Nov-29-2009, abandoning it on Dec-09-2009 after the center's decision that they will start the process for the formation separate Telangana.

With this the requests for new states, as many as 13 have come up. The reason for this asking is that smaller states will contribute to better development of the region and help in raising the standard of living of the people in the newly formed state. BUT WILL THIS BE TRUE IN REALITY?? IS THIS WHAT HAS HAPPENED?? HOW FAR IS THIS FEASIBLE??
We shall discuss all these Issues in the next coming post. Till then stay tuned.

YOUR's Hyderabad Rocker team.
