It is a dangerous precedence to create more states based just on mere political ambitions!

The untimely demise of Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy could not have happened at a worse time. The sequence of events that happened post his death proved the same. If initially it was a major political crisis that erupted with respect to the nomination of a candidate as the next chief minister of the state, later on, it was the demand of K. Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR) for a separate state of Telangana that turned one of the most prosperous and properly administered states into a virtual battleground. The state, which for a very long period has been in the news for its strides in Information Technology and the successful battle against Maoists, is now in the news for all the wrong reasons.

The edit is a serious thought at this juncture, the statement the center made on this issue is one of the Himalayan blunders the congress did it in the recent past. It only made people to divide each other on regional, and cast issues. The people moved in unity till the other day divided into different groups and declare war on each other, the student community too divided apart on this issue, the situation here is so alarming that it should not happened to any state or people. Our so called rulers adopted a policy of divide and rule of the erstwhile British Raj. One cannot understand where we are heading to? Are we going back to the primitive world? What to do now is the big question and dilemma breaking into the heads of our leaders. So sad are the ways of our political leaders, one cannot understand the benefit behind this hidden agenda.
No doubt the Congress Government at the center messed up everything in the state of Andhra Pradesh by their hasty decision. Its one of their greatest blunders they committed in the recent past. The divide and rule policy will not work now. The government itself is in jeopardy now since even a good number of ministers submitted their resignation. The Sonia Singh Chidambaram + Pillai’s formula is in utter flop now and a leading state in India become leaderless, so strange are the politicians play. The edit is an eye opener.
Thanks for sharing.
