All in the game of politics
The current situation prevailing in the Andhra Pradesh clearly states that we are in short of somebody with needed leadership and managerial skills at the higher level. Our PM Mr.Manmohan Singh keeps his mouth shut on this issue and whenever our home minister Mr.P.Chidambaram says something some part of the state gets agitated. When he said a separate telanagana will be formed, on Dec 9, Rayalaseema and Andhra regions protested and when he backtracked yesterday Telangana region is protesting. Our Real PM Mrs.Sonia Gandhi didn’t uttered a word yet on this issue. And the present Andhra CM Mr.Rosaiah was in control of nothing in the state, nobody taking his statements seriously except the TV channels.
More than anything, the one thing that keeps me guessing is how the students were got into these protests? From the few blogs and newspapers I have read Telagana region is the underdeveloped one of all the regions in Andhra Pradesh but then how the students fell to the political tactics of the TRS party? If this is by the political parties then I am sure people will overlook it. But the protests from the students will make them to take notice of it.
For the first time I am seeing MLAs belong to a single party were divided over an issue but the question to be answered is, are their concern is for the people and the welfare of the region or for their own good? Considering the recent records of our politicians latter was more likely.
And also what makes me to doubt their attitude is, their way of sending the resignations. No politician is that selfless to throw away their power and position just for the cause of people. My assumption is, if a MP/MLA from Andhra/Rayalaseema region is giving up his position means then he/she may have lot of investments in the state capital Hyderabad. On the otherhand, if a MP/MLA from Telangana region resigns means, then he/she is expecting the elections soon and will project themselves as a saviour of the people.
Actually I always support the smaller states as they are easier to govern and the development will be even. But Mystery’s this post changed my conception. Yes, even though the state is a big one it has been divided into Lok Sabha and Assembly constituencies and enough powers and funds were given to MLAs and MPs to work towards the development of their respective constituencies.
If the MLAs and MPs of TRS and other parties were that much concerned over the development of Telangana, they can work toward with the people has given a chance to prove their worthiness instead of throwing away their jobs. All I can say is, if they can’t do a thing as MLA or MP or a Minister then they can’t do the same with a separate state and as a CM.
The way our central government has approached this issue shows a lack of clarity in the thinking process and a politically weak administration. Instead of sending a clear message to the protesters when this issue broke out, they played a waiting game, the protests grow from strength to strength and at last when Mr.KCR has been celebrated as a hero, Mr.PC said those words of wisdom and violence broke out in other parts. Our PM was really weak in politics and it was the duty of the leader of the ruling party to provide people of appropriate to solve these issues. But that is not the case here.
The way forward for centre must be to check whats running in the mind of the people of the Telangana by conducting polls instead going with the political parties demands. In the process, they also have to make sure that the other region people of the Andhra Pradesh were convinced if the Telangana people decides to go alone. And also the other major issue is, they have to keep an eye on the voices raising for other new states. Tough times ahead for our central government in the year 2010.
