Formation of Telangana: Who to blame for the current crisis in Seemandhra?

Now that the Cabinet Note on Telangana is prepared, the people of Seemandhra are in open revolt.  They launched violent agitations against bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh.  For the first time in four years of agitations in the state, curfew has been imposed in Vizianagaram.   

Many Seemandhra leaders, the media channels, the activists, and the people, are blaming UPA for the current crisis in Andhra Pradesh.  They have been openly accusing UPA government for the method and process it followed.  They accuse it of acting in haste.  They accuse UPA of announcing this decision only for political gains.  They believe that the bifurcation is an insult to Telugu Jaati (Pride).  They also believe that the process followed in announcing formation of Telangana is anti-democratic and anti-federal.

In reality, there is no merit in any of these accusations.   Formation of Telangana has been a thirteen-year long process.  There have been many promises, manifestos, meetings, decisions, committees, and consultations on Telangana, and each of those steps inched Andhra Pradesh closer to the bifurcation.  In fact, there was an inordinate delay caused by activism of Seemandhras who tried to obstruct the formation of Telangana all these years.  Now that the decision is made, Seemandhras find themselves in a state of self-created crisis.

Who should be blamed for this crisis?

The blame for the current crisis in Seemandhra falls directly on Seemandhra leaders, media outfits, activists and the people.

Seemandhra Leaders
These include YS Rajashekara Reddy (late), Chandra Babu Naidu, Chiranjeevi, YS Jaganmohan Reddy, Kiran Kumar Reddy, Lagadapati Rajagopal, et al.
Seemandhra Media
These include TV9, TV5, NTV, Sakshi, Z24, Andhra Jyoti, Eenadu, et al.
Seemandhra Activists
These include Parakala Prabhakar, Nalamotu Chakravarthy, Ashok Babu, et al.
Seemandhra People
These include all sections of society – students, teachers, NGOs, farmers, et al.

The core reasons for the current crisis can be explained through phenomenon called the ‘institutionalization of lies’.

Institutionalization of Lies

All the above stakeholders got involved in a massive campaign of creating lies and believing in those lies.  Right now, almost entire Seemandhra is in a state of denial

They believed in the following lies for all these years:

  • Telangana will never be formed – no matter what.   Formation of new state is ‘not like cutting a cake’.  ‘Would you give a state just because some unemployed people come onto streets and agitate?’ There are so many other regions in India which are asking statehood.  The center will never create Telangana because it will open up Pandora’s Box.
  • Our leaders are capable of obstructing the formation of Telangana forever.  When needed our political leaders will use their majority power to suppress the minority in State Assembly.  If needed, they will intensely lobby in New Delhi and use their power and money to ensure Telangana will never be formed.
  • Though our leaders have promised Telangana in their election manifestos, they did not actually mean any of it.  We all know that we are not serious about formation of Telangana.  All these promises are made by our political parties only to calm down the Telangana people so that Telangana Movement eventually dies its natural death.  Wait for few more years, and Telangana Movement will just fade away.
  • All the issues and demands raised by Telangana people are bunch of lies.   There is no need to listen to their concerns or demands.  There is no need to address them.  Telangana people are raising bogus issues only because they are brainwashed by KCR and TRS.
  • There is no popular sentiment for separate statehood in Telangana.  Very few people in Telangana want separate statehood.  There is no widespread movement.  Those who show up for agitations are incentivized with money, liquor and chicken biryani.   If they don’t come for meetings they are harassed and beaten up.  The only people who are supporting the movement are KCR, his family members and his stooges.   Very soon most of the people of Telangana will realize the real intentions of KCR, and they will abandon him - and this movement will evaporate into thin air.

Seemandhra leaders created these lies, their media propagated them into all households, and their activists legitimized them.  Over a period of time these lies were institutionalized into Seemandhra. Today, Seemandhras are not able to come out of the lies that surround them - and they don't know who to blame.  They think there is a very big conspiracy hatched by the UPA and Republic of India against Telugu pride

Today, Seemandhras are in a state of shock.  They don’t know how Telangana statehood could be formed.  They ask, ‘how can these lazy, incompetent, drunkards, get their own state which includes Hyderabad?’ 

They believe that Telangana people do not deserve statehood.   They believe that Seemandhra leaders are capable of obstructing Telangana at any time.  Even now they believe that the ‘game’ has only begun, and declare that ‘it is not over till the last ball is bowled’.  They believe they have ‘brahmastra’ which can be used to stall Telangana. 

Seemandhras are not ready to accept the reality

Right now, instead of preparing their own people to face the reality the Seemandhra leaders, the media, and the activists are involved in massive agitations to obstruct the formation of Telangana.   The leaders and activists clearly admit that there can be no compromise.  They believe it is a war.  They are ready to fight till the end – they are not going to accept creation of Telangana no matter what.  They want to defeat it in the State Assembly.  They want to defeat it in the Parliament.   They want to go to Supreme Court.  They want the government to roll back the decision. 

[They are so upset with New Delhi that some of them started floating an idea that Seemandhra should be a separate country.  The sane question is: If they believe they can't even have livelihood, education or water just because Telangana is separated as a state, how do they plan to get all this as a separate country?]
  
Who has to educate the Seemandhra people?

Any attempt by Telangana leaders or activists trying to reason with Seemandhra at this point of time will only backfire - as evident from some of the violent debates on TV channels. And any attempt by New Delhi to intervene will be rejected.  

It is up to the Seemandhra leaders, media channels, and activists to educate Seemandhra people.  They should tell the people that there is no reason to fear the bifurcation - that their jobs will not be all lost, that they will have food to eat, and water to drink, that their fields will not dry up, and that their region will not turn into a desert or a graveyard, if Telangana is formed.  No one else can help the people of Seemandhras at this hour but their own leaders, media and activists.  Instead of spending their energies in fomenting violent agitations, the leadership can instead focus their energies to negotiate with New Delhi and Telangana leaders to get a good deal for their own people.

  2. Good one Sujai.
    Congress has come too far to back out now, if they do, I don't think that's a solution in any aspect as they would probably bring peace to SeemaAndhra, but with this would start a revolt in Telangana.
    What is your gut feeling? would T state be reality before the elections?

      My gut feeling? Well, I am pragmatic - would like to believe it only when the bill is passed on both houses of the Parliament.

      But since you asked - yes, I do believe that Telangana will be a reality this time - but we are all very very apprehensive about the status of Hyderabad. Some of us tend to think that it will be another 'Gentlemen's Agreement' a noose around neck for the next sixty years. We are doing our best not to get caught into another quagmire.

      I believe that UPA is committed to creating Telangana, and we believe that BJP is also very committed to supporting the bill. Therefore, the chances are very high. Yes, it is possible to get Telangana before elections. (if not, we can just forget Telangana).

      Going back on this will cost much more damage to UPA than what they are facing in Seemandhra. It will create a great crisis in Telangana, plus its credibility in national and international arena will take a hit. BJP will have a field day.

      UPA can get YSRCP to join after the elections.

      Well, we will fight. But if we don't get Telangana now, there is a very good chance that we may have to wait for a very long time. Please understand that though India fought for Independence for many decades, it came about in 1947, two years after WWII. There is a very big WWII played in our independence (and that of other colonies).

  3. Well written article.

    I am not sure if I am the only one who is still skeptical about the state formation despite cabinet approval. These Seemandhra leaders, media, and activists, who are making false propaganda, are capable of even claiming Chandhra (Moon) saying there is "Andhra" in it.

    God Save Telangana! Sorry, I cannot use 'God' in Sujai's blog. :)

    Hope, Telangana becomes a reality soon!!!

      Many times the decisions are taken for certain political reasons. One could easily say that India got freedom in 1947 only because England was not in a position to continue ruling it after WWII (for various reasons), and that it has nothing to do with the fact that Indians fought for freedom.

      At the end of the day, we got freedom - that's what matters.

    Its all about Hyderabad the jewel of AP; Telangana and Andhra are after it. Very likely Hyderabad will be made UT after so much agitation.
    The center is not interested in Telangana or Andhra's welfare, they will divide in such a way that every region's ego gets satisfied and Congress gets the best mileage.
    At the end justice will prevail, no one will get Hyderabad on a platter exclusively.

    2. Hyderabad city has been integral part of Nizam before its accession to India in 1948. From then on it belongs to Union of India, you don't have exclusive claim on Hyderabad city like Nizam had before.

      Current day Hyderabad city was developed by everyone in India, and majority was entrepreneurs from Costal AP. If other regions of AP do not have entrepreneurship skills that is their problem. If you have identity crisis why don't you take your beloved Telangana and leave Hyderabad as UT ? Nope, you want well made city with zero efforts.

    4. Well thats as biased as it could be. The primary mindset of Telangana folks is that they were from a different country(Nizam) and even after acceding to India they still think that they are of Nizam state. After formation of Union of India, Telangana can not dictate terms to others. Whole India has to take a decision regarding current day AP which includes the erstwhile Nizam state as well. But instead our elected representatives are taking the people for granted and acting like buffoons. Telangana or Andhra are 2 sides of the same coin(political incompetency). How can Congress consult with TDP and YSRCP and presume people will agree to it ? TDP and YSRCP exactly wanted today's situation so that they can blame the center for the mess, as they were incapable to appease either side from the beginning.

    5. After formation of Union of India, Telangana can not dictate terms to others. Whole India has to take a decision regarding current day AP which includes the erstwhile Nizam state as well.

      You are absolutely right. Even we Telanganas believe that Article 3 as enshrined in Indian Constitution, which formed the basis for formation of nearly 16 states so far in this country, should be the basis for creation of Telangana. Since that article clearly gives the power to the Parliament of India overriding the opinions of the concerned State Assembly, it is pretty clear that creation of Telangana is inevitable now since most major political parties in India who comprise much more than the majority have already agreed to form Telangana.

      We are actually following the constitutional process, while it is Seemandhras who want to subvert it.

      Delete
    6. Seemandhra's concerns are as genuine as Telangana's. Both groups need to try to convince India as a whole that a separation is needed or not. Constitution applies to both groups not just one. Constitution which has provisions for splitting states also has provisions for rights of both regions. Telangana fought for those rights (not debating if they are genuine or not). SeemaAndhra is fighting for their rights of a developed capital. Very likely Congress will not act till general elections and leave the mess for next government.

      Only because Telangana was with Andhra all these 60 years it is able to contrast with developed life versus not so developed life. Telangana grew at the same or better pace as other Nizam state areas like Nanded, Parbhani, Aurangabad. All you got to blame is your Nizam not Andhra folks.

    9. You have only one concern? What about water that I keep hearing about? What about food?

      SeemaAndhra is fighting for their rights of a developed capital. -- As in Hyderabad.

      Nobody has a right to get a developed city if it does not lie inside your region. I may want to have Mumbai but I cannot have it. If I want to have Mumbai in my state, then I can go and start living in Maharashtra.

      There are only few metropolitan cities in this country - not every state has a metropolitan city. Some have Bhubhaneshwar, some have Bhopal, some have Ranchi, Raipur and Trivandrum. Compared to any of those cities, I believe Vizag, Vijayaward or Tirupati are equally (or may be more) developed.

      There is only one Hyderabad. If the state is divided, it will go to one of the states. And since Hyderabad is an integral part of Telangana, geographically and historically (meaning when Andhra State merged with Telangana to form Andhra Pradesh in 1956, it was Telangana which had Hyderabad, not Andhra State), Hyderabad will be with Telangana, the way Vishakapatnam or Vijaywada will be with residuary Andhra Pradesh.

      So, how can you have a right over a city that does not lie in your region?

      Delete
    10. It is Telangana that wants to separate not Andhra. If you want to separate, leave the commonly developed Hyderabad alone.

      If they merged in 1956, that means population below 60years of age which consists of 90% of the population only knows Hyderabad as their capital and so they did develop it, and they will fight to keep it as their capital.

      Geographically and Historically is a reason when Nizam was an independent country. Once it acceded to India, its geographically and historically part of India and you need to play by Indian constitution. Indian constitution gives right to every citizen to protect their interests, and that is exactly what SeemaAndhra is exercising now.

      There is a saying in telugu: "Sommu okadidi soku inkokadidi" Andhrit'es develop Hyderabad and Telangana wants to pocket it.

      This is unresolved till it reaches supreme court and few decades.

    11. Andhrit'es develop Hyderabad and Telangana wants to pocket it.

      It is a false claim. I have addressed this in:
      http://sujaiblog.blogspot.in/2013/09/arguments-concerning-hyderabad.html
      The questions that are relevant are:
      “1. Why Seemandhras invested into Hyderabad?”
      “2. Did Seemandhras invest into Hyderabad only because they believed it was their capital city?”
      “3. Can Seemandhras claim Hyderabad just because they invested into Hyderabad?”

      Telangana does not want to pocket anything that does not lie in its region. It is not making its claim on Tirupathi, Vizag, Sea ports on Coastal Andhra, KG Basin, etc. In the same vein, Andhra cannot claim anything that is not part of their territory.

      It is Telangana that wants to separate not Andhra. If you want to separate, leave the commonly developed Hyderabad alone.

      These concerns are addressed in:
      http://sujaiblog.blogspot.in/2013/09/those-who-seek-separation-should-give.html

      Indian constitution gives right to every citizen to protect their interests, and that is exactly what SeemaAndhra is exercising now.

      There is no right to protect one’s interest in Indian Constitution – and it has no social merit when that interest involves robbing others of their cities, their freedoms and their right for self-determination.

      This is unresolved till it reaches supreme court and few decades.

      One commenter, V Ramana wrote the following:

      You need to understand that for a state to be united, you need to have our consent, which you don't.

      It is not about agitation. It is about our desire, demand, and our aspiration. Agitation is only mode of expressing it. We expressed it in various other forms - through forums, books, protests, demonstrations, rallies, songs, gatherings, speeches, activist groups, political representations, political parties, etc.

      Hyderabad was a state with 60+cr. in excess budget, when andhra was a state with deficit budget and their assembly used to run under tents.(This is a well known fact-- if u want proofs, u can read ur own news papers that published during 1952-1956). Hyderabad was a developed state (including Hyderabad city) with its own power generation, agriculture projects planning, roads. It used to have well established assembly, hospitals, research centers in drug and pharmacy etc. (do u want facts regarding these ... there are many on the net ... go surf yourself). Do u know whatwas the name of vishakapatnam(it used to be called isakapatnam -- the land of sand), now it is a very developed city(from where did the money come ?). Vijayawada used to be called what and why?(how did it develop?). Is andhra region developed without using any resources from Telangana Region? We have scarificed a lot many things for the development of AndhraPradesh neglecting our own region. VTPS(where is it located?), RTPP(Whre is it located?). If we fought for our rights from the beginning where would u people be today? think before commenting on any region. Know the history before speaking. Every telanganite know their regions history now. U cant bluff and make the falses true by shouting again and again. If u dont know the truths dont speak on any arena.

      ....(censored couple of words as they are not dignified and neither meant for you nor me. This is a 13th century poem BTW)

      Vizag port came up before independence courtesy the British. Shipyard was a greenfield investment by Scindia Steamship Company - Walchand Hirachand of Mumbai forerunner to Premier Automobiles later. Nehru nationalized it as a part of key infrastructre industry nationalization policy. HPCL was investment of Caltex, Esso and Kosan gas - United States and Europe before 1956 operational in 1957. Bharat Heavy Plates and vessels is an investment of GOI under Bharat Yantra Nigam Ltd now merged with BHEL, It was a minor PSU always. Vizag Steel was started in 1971 but completed only in 1991 - because Indira Gandhi froze central govt investment and successive govts released investments in multiple tranches as and when feasible. All its raw material needs sourced from Bailadilla in Chatisgarh and Andhra region.It produces its own power. Coal and coke come from Talcher, Orissa and Australia and NONE of Singareni coal. NTPC is a recent investment by GOI. Coal comes from Talcher and Neyveli and NOT Singareni. Gangavaram is a JV between AP giovt (10%) and remaining between DVS Raju and Warburg Pincus (US). DVS Raju was with Satyam Comp and left well before Ramalinga Raju started to sing. If he is your bone of contention, you may petition SC and haul his ass to Cherlapalli (assuming he is guilty -which is not likely). and re-locate the port into Telangana and turning it into a 100% state owned firm with Andhra govt having to re-compensate Warburg Pincus. No issues from Vizag side. The port dislocated a lot of fishermen who are mightily unhappy with rehab and YSR. It is also a tiny port which destroyed a beautiful beach. Apart from it there is not much. Your recent grouse is Bayyaram mines - these are not yet given to Vizag Steel so you can shoot that plan of GoI and retain the mines for Telangana only. Vizag steel was willing to invest in a massive rolling mill in Bayyaram as a reciprocative development plan meaning jobs to T people. You are not happy with it, so you can keep the mines. Apart from this Birla invested in jute and gypsum, some marwari cos from Calcutta in ferro alloys - all in the ancient days with raw material from Vizianagaram distt. These are almost bankrupt now. Vijay Mallya had a small polymers plant that he sold to LG. NRI entrepreneur with no T or Hyd connection set up Rain Calcining and sold it to a US co. Indian Navy - large base. Please ask Dept of Defence if they used Telangana assets for it. I have no idea., Dredging Corporation - Tiny GOI PSU with no scope of any resources usable from Telangana They Dredge ports around India. Their dredging ships could not possibly made in Hyderabad. Bhaba Atomic Research Centre is eager to set up a nuke research facility there due to some geographic considerations - again not a T project moved to A.

    4. Part Two: A Sri Lankan co opened apparel city here. Raw material comes from local region and Chattisgarh.Now your bone of contention can be Ramky's Pharma City which you are likely to say contains Telangana hard money. I have no clue about this. Please ask Jagan. The pharma city is anyway nonstarter. Lands were acquired really cheap so I am not sure how much funds from T were diverted here, Compared to the earlier investments with GoI or foreign investments, this is a pittance. You may claim it and take it back to Telangana as a state owned industry and haul Ramky people to Cherlapalli and expect repatriation of funds from Andhra govt. If the courts rule in your favour. We are more than happy to accomodate this demand of yours. Vizag was developed as a result of the above industries except Gangavaram port and Ramky Non-starter Pharma city. none of the money is from T. No raw material from T. No labour displacement in T. There are no housing projects worth mentioning in Vizag. There are a few hotels and resorts of private ownership some of which are local investors but some of YSR beneficieries. Please provide sufficient proofs to claim that T money is sunk in these and take your investment + interest above market rate back. Not much I am certain.

      So please be careful in generalising against Vizag. I don't really care about Hyderabad. I am not bothered about how much money went from T to other Andhra /Seema towns. Vizag is independent development with no T involvement. It stood on its own.

    5. Lastly, our "esteemed" former MP Sri Sri Sri Subbarami Reddy has only "love" for Vizag but no investments. He parked all his "hard earned money" in Hyderabad. Please be our guest and do the needful. We will be happy to see T squeeze his money out for themselves. MVVS Murthy has no investments in Hyderabad. The Raja of Daspalla has a hotel in Hyderabad. Be our guest and throw him and his business out. We do not care. Purandareswari has not brought any sommu from attarillu or nannarillu to Vizag. She got us temporary night landing facility in our pathetic little airport. In contrast the GMR bros from this region built a super airport in Hyderabad. 0 investment in Vizag. Investments before Hyderabad ventures in Rajam. If they are diverting hard money of T to Rajam, be our guest. Vizag has nothing to do with Rajam.

    That's not true. Even Sree Krishna Committee said Costal AP entrepreneurs share is around 15%

    >>How can Congress consult with TDP and YSRCP and presume people will agree to it ?

    These parties supported Telangana formation, and costal people gave their votes to these parties. That is how it works in democracy.

    >>SeemaAndhra is fighting for their rights of a developed capital.

    NO, they are fighting for United Andhra. Which is against Telangana people's right to get their own state. You can come back and ask the same question when Seemandra people start agitated for HYD or part of HYD or HYD's revenue. Atleast for now, your question is irreverent.

    >>Indian constitution gives right to every citizen to protect their interests

    yeah, kind of true... . But small change, that is not 'Indian Constitution', actually that is 'Seemandra Constitution'. And it gives right to protect only Seemandra's interests, it don't care about rest of the country. lol.

Case to point - " how can these lazy incompetent drunkards..." Is this a documented rhetoric from thw other side or your own generalization of the expected resction? If documented, is it by someone of your own intellect or a troller? Or is it a product of your sub conscious anxiety about how the world percieves you. Pardon me friend but it comes across as a whine of someone with low self-esteem. Your article reeks of certain inferiority complex. Telugu Pride you mention. Is that a rationalization to your own lack of one? Sorry friend, your cause is genuine but your arguments are petty, parochial and hateful. Advise to get it proof read by someone experienced before posting. You may not observe what people are likely to see in you. I hope your endeavours bears fruit very soon.

      But I fail to understand one thing. Why the inferiority complex?

      Fighting for your own freedom from any kind of oppression or discrimination should not be equated to inferiority complex.

      Why the deep identity crisis? Surely you folks live in a free country and not Israel or Iraq. You are not like the Kurds or Palestinians. So why do you overdo the victimization part?

      Well, most Indians do not understand or realize that even in democracies, certain people could be suppressed, marginalized and discriminated. Through what is called as ‘tyranny of majority’, even democracies could introduce suppression of certain people.

      And that is what happened in Telangana. If you observe the current trend in Telangana you will realize how our identity was suppressed in the state of Andhra Pradesh – it was a meticulous program to completely eliminate everything that identified a person from Telangana, his language, his history, his festivals, his hero figures, his songs, his culture.

      And all those are emerging out now, and only upon emergence of our identity people of Telangana are able to realize and understand how much of it was suppressed all these years.

      Case to point - " how can these lazy incompetent drunkards..." Is this a documented rhetoric from thw other side or your own generalization of the expected resction?

      Heavily documented.

      Even Srikrishna Committee referred to it. Many Andhra political leaders have come out in open and spoke about us this way. This blog has hundreds of comments in which we are characterized as ‘lazy, drunkards and incompetent’.

      These days, most Andhras naturally assume this about Telangana people without any doubt.

      Or is it a product of your sub conscious anxiety about how the world percieves you.

      There are two ways to look at a rape. One way is to say that man raped the woman, and other is to say that the woman invited the man to forcibly have sex with her out of her inferiority complex and ‘subconscious anxiety’.

      Telugu Pride you mention. Is that a rationalization to your own lack of one?

      Telangana people reject Telugu Jaati, Telugu Pride, Telugu Talli, because they are used as symbols and ideologies to keep the state united forever so that Telangana could continue to be an internal colony of Seemandhras. It like Indians rejected the glory of British Empire.

  13. He Giveth and He Taketh. Jesus is kind . He gave us the brotherhood of Andhra Pradesh in 1956 and takes away from us the hatred of Telangana in 2013. He took away Madras and gave us Hyderabad in 1956. He takes away Hyderabad in 2013 and gave us a purpose to rebuild yet another city. He is always benevolent. This bifurcation is his benevolence to Seemandhra. He urges us to give. Let us give Hyderabad to Telangana. He made us build it for them. He will give us more

  14. Mr ranga, you raised a valid point. This is a malicious article. Either you show proof that people of Andhra call Telangana people as incompetent drunkards or withdraw your statement. You cannot generalize opinions with such slanderous remarks. This kind of lies are meant to to stoke hatred which will destabilize the region. Again mr. Ranga is right. It is coming out of a feeling of self pity. You are inviting people to think you really are incompetent drunkards.
