All in the game of politics

December 24, 2009

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.

    I have a question.
    On 9th Dec,Chidambaram announced that congress has agreed to Telangana in principle.
    Who asked him to do so?
    Why is that person not being mentioned?
    Who has messed up this issue?
    Our PM normally does not make any statement on any controversial issue.
    And most of the issues are controversial.
    Where is the leadership of this country?

    kanagu: Chidambaram would have never ever thought about this when made that statement… both the times he got it wrong Sir…

    The PM should have convened an all-party meeting and discussed about this issue. The Andhra MLAs and MPs’ opinion should have been taken into consideration….(I am a dreamer, you know!) then decided whether to split Andhra or look for other solutions. Now, this action of the Centre has ignited other states to follow suit and ask for tiny tiny smaller states – a new CM and MLAs, MPs…more expenditure!

    kanagu: More than political parties I wish they ask the people of Telangana ( I am a bigger dreamer than you 😀 😀 )…. as the days were gone when the political parties reflected the sentiments of the people…. and what you have mentioned is right… more expenditure.. but no respite to the people…. 😦 😦

    The Centre has bungled up. How are they going untangle the problems, we have to wait and see! Till then we have to just watch the chaos in the State.

    kanagu: This is one of the toothless and mindless govt… 😐 😐

    You have written this post very well, Kanagu. Nice.

    kanagu: Thank you 🙂 🙂

    The students of OU have been involved in the separate Telangana fight even before in the year 1966 if I am not wrong. Telangana is the most under developed part of Andhra Politicans say they want it separate so that they can develop it. Some people are buying that stuff where as others know its all one big political game for power.

    kanagu: Thanks for this detailed comment.. I am really nice to hear these views from you…. 🙂 🙂
    yes people fell for that… it is the most disappointing thing 😦 😦 but students are brainwashed, I guess…..

    Andhra people are against it because of HYD…. many people have invested huge amounts here as its the capital now if telangana wants it as their own they will be under tremendous losses. example… the film city, reddy labs… they are all Andhra. Most of the MLA’ who have quit isnt for the love of people but love for their money.

    kanagu: This thing too I thought before.. our politicians are not that selfless or fools to give up power that easily… but I don’t understand why some people are getting to know this fact 😦 😦

    The whole thing going on Andhra is a huge political drama and nothing else. None have the interest of people in their heart. What they arent realizing is that they making life tough for us. I just like 10 minutes from OU and my dad is scared even if i step out as most of the action is taking place here.

    kanagu: Interest for people… if any politician says that I am LOL… 😀 😀 hmmm… things are really hard there 😦 😦 hope its comes under control soon

    I guess the reason center isnt acting is simple…. if the Congress gov in AP falls the center is gonna get affected too and their might be a chance that they loose their majority. Even the state gov isnt doing anything drastic… if u say me they should just take the worst step and file FIR agaisnt people and do something… this is really getting out of hand. Center anyways has finally sent in some force to control situations in hyd and have promised to send more.

    kanagu: The police are feared, I guess… anyways its good to see more forces coming into Hyderabad to take control…. and Congress has a dumbo government both in center and state.. nobody don’t know how to handle the issue….

    The TRS has said that they wait till monday and if no decision is taken about T state then they will go on a bandh from 28.

    kanagu: I am keeping my fingers crossed… hope that won’t happen…

    None of people want a separate T… you know we need to start from scratch and we have nothing. NO, irrigation land, no rails, no companies nothing. The fight now is for HYD… T wants it as their capital and Andhra wants it as a Union Territory so that their money doesnt go waste.

    I have written a lot… oopps..

    kanagu: hmmm… hope everything turns good Harini… one solution in front of centre is to conduct a poll among the Telangana people and shut this issue one and for all… as many people were opting for united Andhra.. that will be the end of protests and all non-sense….

      I am really sorry for all the typos and stuff… i got carried away :P.

      kanagu: No probs 🙂 🙂

      It would be great if they just decided to leave AP as it is and not split it up further! Only God can put sense into people.

    If separate telangana is given i am sure there will be chaos and i am sure how marathi manoos want non-marathis go out of the state same thing will happen in hyderabad.TRS goons will make life of people from andhra miserable.

    kanagu: I hate the parties like TRS.. whose only agenda is to break this nation and unity among the people/… if I get a chance I won’t mind shoot’em up…

    I myself born in telangana,parents are from andhra and married to typical telangana family.We have never differentiated between telangana and andhra and i am sure 95% of people in hyd will ever do that.It is just a dream of particular party to get hold of hyderabad so that they will become CM of the separate state and enjoy benefits.

    kanagu: yes… I think thats why the central government is not asking the people to choose between Telangana and United Andhra….

    The brand image of hyd is fading now with another latest news of Mr.Governor is the sex scandals.Sick people.

    kanagu: Yes… if this continues development of Andhra will be severely affected…. 😦 😦 already a conference to be held in Hyderabad was shifted to Chennai…. but TRS or the JAC don’t worry about this.. they suck big time… 😡 😡

    The people who are suffering are the students and the common people,the politicians are happy with Z security.

    kanagu: 😦 😦 😦 yes.. all their daily wages are gone… these politicians are making them more poorer day by day….

    I read years ago that our country was divided into small states who used to fight all the time. and that is how the British got the idea of divide and rule…. and rest is history.

    The freedom fighters then worked very hard to unite us into One nation.. and that helped us win over the British.

    where are we headed now.. back to the past…

    did we learn nothing form that……………………..

    kanagu: History is always forgotten Oorja 😦 😦

    • December 27, 2009 7:31 pm

      Well said, Oorja. But history, as we know, repeats itself! Its amazing how we never learn from mistakes.

  9. December 26, 2009 6:48 pm

    I think it was pure mismanagement by centre and state heads that caused this issue to rise so much!

    Destination Infinity

    kanagu: True DI…

  10. December 27, 2009 7:32 pm

    Very good post, K. I think the Congress cracked up and made a hasty announcement, and the whole nation was aghast!! Hope they have the good sense to revoke that decision atleast now, after seeing that people are not really in favour of the divide at all!

    kanagu: Thanks Pals… hope something fruitful happens by Jan 5. Every party is divided on this issue and the sufferers are people 😦 😦

    Nicely written Kanagu..Thanks for mentioning my post..

    kanagu: Thanks Mystery… and your post is too good 🙂 🙂

    Going by the happenings in the state, i wanted to write one more post on the issue but then backed off as it was getting too serious post…

    hope things get back to normal as soon as possible and peace is restored…

    kanagu: Please write Mystrey… like to hear more from you on this issue….
    I think it is little bit ok now..
