It is clear that introduction of Srikrishna Committee is a step backwards for Telangana from Dec 9th statement. Srikrishna Committee is NOT formed to bring in Telangana. Instead, it is formed to “study” if Telangana is indeed “underdeveloped”, and if so, how and where. There is no clear indication if the recommendations from this committee will be binding upon the government. There is no indication if this committee is going to give one clear solution to the current problem or propose a set of measures like Times of India does – present both ‘view’ and ‘counterview’.
- JAC should take more responsibility and accountability for the political agitation of Telangana. They should make fewer pronouncements and create more action. They should be in charge of entire Telangana agitation at political and people’s level.
- JAC should make binding agreements with all its members – this dillydallying on part of some political parties within the state is not helping the agitation to make a concerted effort. JAC should ensure that all parties are on board before spelling out a decision or action. Right now, we see the whole agitation going disarray. For example, some political outfits resign while others did not.
- JAC should regulate all campaigns across the region, so that various bodies are prepared and enacted with a clear focus. Right now too many agitations are happening on their own without a single goal or objective in mind. A campaign advisory group should be formed which clearly details all activities for the future.
- Entire Telangana should prepare itself for a massive non-cooperation movement. Steps should be taken up by JAC to announce a series of non-cooperation activities and prescribe them to people of Telangana so that they can carry out them out.
