Option 3: Bifurcation of State into Rayala-Telangana and coastal Andhra regions with Hyderabad being an integral part of Rayala-Telangana
It looks like the committee wanted to come up with various permutations and combinations to make it look like they have explored many options. This is a silly option, suggested by extremely few. During the protests of 1956, and then during agitations of 1969, and then during the last ten years of Telangana Movement, Rayalaseema was on the side of Coastal Andhra to deny people of Telangana its statehood. So, how is it possible for Telangana to merge with Rayalaseema to form a new state? When Telangana people say, we want separate Telangana, it is clear that they don’t want to be in the same state with Coastal Andhra or Rayalaseema. No more experiments for people of Telangana. We owe this to the future of Telangana.
Option 4: Bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh into Seemandhra and Telangana with enlarged Hyderabad Metropolis as a separate Union Territory. This Union Territory will have geographical linkage and contiguity via Nalgonda district in the south-east to district Guntur in coastal Andhra and via Mahboobnagar district in the south to Kurnool district in Rayalaseema
I met someone recently in Bangalore. He and his family migrated from Assam to Bangalore. He likes the weather here and loves it here, but somehow misses his home-state Assam. He would like to make Bangalore a part of Assam. I told him that he can’t do that- he doesn’t own Bangalore other than the fact that he and some of his family members live here, and then I added him that Bangalore will be an enclave inside Karnataka and therefore separate Bangalore is not feasible. Then without even thinking he said, OK, we will include other districts of Karnataka till we reach the border with nearby state. He did not care or bother to care that he is just using other districts only to get to the border of another state just for his selfish and vested interests. He didn’t care to know how and what these other districts wanted. Such people do exist. They are nowadays called Srikrishnas.
So, what were the esteemed Srikrishna Committee members inhaling when they came up with this suggestion? What is the rationale for this? Just recently, on 29 Dec 2010, Andhrajyothi published an opinion poll which indicated that 96% of people in South Telangana (which includes Nalgonda and Mahbubnagar) demanded a separate Telangana. So, how did these Tughlaqs come up with such a ridiculous notion that they can just simply strip away two districts from Telangana just because some selfish people want to ensure Hyderabad is stripped of Telangana? While they are doing this, why not add 7 more districts and make the entire region a metropolis of Hyderabad. May be it can be called ‘Greatest Hyderabad’ (since the name ‘Greater Hyderabad’ is already taken up). Since they are entertaining whimsical ideas Telanganas fail to understand why these Modern Tughlaqs did not suggest to add some districts of Coastal Andhra or Rayalaseema into this 'metropolis' or why Telangana cannot be given access to the sea by giving Telangana some districts of Coastal Andhra.
This suggestion beats all other options in foolishness. And Srikrishna Committee Report makes a mockery of itself by including this even as an option. They lost all their credibility by citing so many ridiculous options instead of concentrating on two or three really feasible ones.
