Why did we not get Telangana along with Chattisgarh, Uttarkhand and Jharkhand?
When BJP was in power, they had recommended creation of some new states. In fact, it was part of their manifesto. When they came to power, they set out put their manifesto into actions. They even wrote about nuclear armament in their manifesto and later realized it. There were few issues on their manifesto which they could not deliver on, like Telangana issue, etc, due to political reasons. [There were many other issues which were left out, thanks to coalition governments – like saffronization our history books, etc.]
When BJP was in power at center their opposition parties were holding power in Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and
Move to the next elections. We have Congress Party at the center and also in the state. Though TRS colluded with Congress Party on the promise that Congress would grant a separate state, it did not since the state headed by Rajasekhara Reddy who is opposed to creation of Telangana. Hence the status quo!
So, when will we get our Telangana?
We may get our Telangana whenever the following scenarios occur:
1. If Congress (with UPA) comes to power and the state posits an opposition party. Separation happens after elections.
2. If BJP (with NDA) comes to power and the state posits an opposition party. Separation happens after elections.
3. We may get Telangana before the elections if Congress at the center, which got infamous in Telangana region for going back on their promise to grant Telangana, feels they may lose out in the state because of this backlash. In such a case they may quickly grant a new state right before the next election whereby they may sweep the polls in the new state. But this scenario is not that simple. If they are confident they can get many seats outside of Telangana, in the rest of AP, they may continue to delay the separation to keep the regional Congress Party happy.
We may not get Telangana even after the polls if Congress comes to power in center and as well in the State. If BJP gets to power in the center, there is a slim chance that BJP or its allies will sweep polls within the state (since BJP is unlikely to ally with TDP -but who knows?) and then there is a better chance for Telangana.
