In conversation with Tehelka’s Assistant Editor Kunal Majumder, Political Analyst Dr Parakala Prabhakar argues against the demand for a separate state of Telangana.
Where is the self-rule when a CM(decided by the majority) virtually controls everything in a state and goes as far as diverting Telangana waters to Rayalseema over and above the ratio that they are entitled to.
When intra-state rivers sharing becomes a political issue to be managed within the state, how can Telangana region ever present its case when it represents only 39% of the assembly seats. Won’t a Seemandhra with the other 61% win the rivers sharing battle 99 times out of 100.
When the state is formed Telangana region can Directly take up the matter with the Tribunal to take what it is legally entitled to.
Please tell me why only 4% of the employees in the secretariat are from Telangana?? Favoritism? Cronyism?
I totally agree with you in a perfect world statehood for Telangana is not required but I don’t see that happening in India for the next 50 years. Till that time should generations of Telangana people suffer for “Telugu Unity”?
Parakalavi raka rakaala matalu.Looks like seemandhra people do not mind giving andgra and rayala seema in exchange for Hyderabad.Why this fascination for hyderabad? Can’t you survive without Hyderabad?Are you fond of Biryani so much?Seema does not want to be with Andhra,Andhra does not want to be with Seema and both are unwanted for Telangana.Lagadapati wants to act with Babu mohan in films.No problem.We will have Telugu Lurel and Hardy combination.Telangana will not come in the way of this pair.Lagadapati,Rayapati,Mekapati,Thokapati,Garikapati all are Balisinapati.Why do they want Sannapati telangan? We need a new discipline of psychiatry to analyse this phenomenon.

Funny! What do you want to achieve with Telangana? Why do you pour poison on Coastal Andhras and Rayalaseema Andhras? Your KCR does not know the meaning of ANDHRA. It means the race, that speaks Telugu. The other name of Telugu is ANDHRAMU or ANDHRA BHASHA. It is better, if the Telangana leaders give up their envy for Coastal and Rayalaseema people and think like sane people. If you give names to Coastal and Rayalaseema people, it only shows how much envy you have for our people. Thank god! we have not stooped that level. We always think that people of all the tree regions are ONE. Only the power mongers in Telangana want to separate people. I appeal to all Telangana people, who are sane, to see the light and teach a lesson to their leaders, whoever propagate separatism. We shall be glad to help in their treatment for this mental disablity.
