Yesterday KCR said that everyone born and raised in Telangana is a Telangana.
The Telangana Rashtra Samiti president, Mr K. Chandrasekhar Rao, turned the T-line upside down, stating that everyone born in Telangana would have all rights to government jobs when the region gets statehood.
The new diktat means that a child of a person belonging to either Andhra or Rayalaseema will be considered a Telanganite if he is born in the region.
I welcome this stand coming from KCR. I am actually happy that he made such a sensible statement. However, some Telanganas have objections to this.
Telangana lawyers and different joint action committees were not amused by this sudden deviation by the TRS chief.
Some statehood units have threatened to stage protests to force Mr Rao to abandon his stand.
I think it is time we educate our own Telangana people on what future Telangana means to all of us. We have been partially successful in telling our people why we want Telangana. [And I have failed miserably in trying to reach out to Andhra brothers].
