But what struck me hard in this situation is the animosity of the protagonist of Telengana movements, K Chandrasekhara Rao towards the people of Andhra. In a live programme telecast in a news channel, KCR (as he is popularly known) has personally insulted a caller who wanted him to stop spreading hatred among Telugus. KCR branded the caller as a fool and said that it were people like him who are dividing people among the state and it was not him. He gave some statistics about the injustices to the region of Telengana and said that he would set those imbalances correct in the separate state. He said that he would drive out land grabbers and imperialists from the region.
Seeing that telecast LIVE, I wondered if this is the stand of the leader of the movement, then what extremes would his followers go in implementing this ideology. I am sure that there would be largescale violence as soon as the new state of Telengana is formed.
On an analytical ground, I think that the grievances of KCR (which he dubs as the injustices to the region) can easily be solved through dialogue. And more than that he needs to know that it is the collective failure of politicians of the region by failing to advocate their case in a proper way to the powers those matters than of a conspiracy of the people from other regions. But that does not call for a division of people in the basis of some flimsy grounds (which he dubs as the aspirations of people from 50 years).
If his grievances are taken as a whole then the Government of India should forego their claim on Kashmir. Wonder what would KCR say on that. Unthinkable if he toes the official line!
Some better counsel is needed for KCR to stop spreading his message of hatred between brothers. On that note I sign off,Cheers and Love
