Why Do Telangana Agitators Persist?

Here as well as in many other places and forums the arguments that are advanced by the Telangana agitators have been completely ground to powder.

Thier argument that Telangana region is backward, that it is exploited, discriminated against, and neglected were shown to be complete falsehoods.

Their argument that historically the Telugu speaking area under the Nizam and the rest of the Telugu speaking areas were never together was shown to be a sham.

Their claim that culturally the two regions are different has also been rubbished beyond any reasonable doubt.

 

All the allegations levelled against by the Telangana agitators were proven to be false.

In fact, now even the agitators themselves say that they do not want to join issue on any of the grounds that they made their demand stand on hitherto. They know that their plot is lost.

Now they say that they want a separate state simply because they want a separate state. Nothing more.

Having started an agitation on false grounds they do not know how to retreat and withdraw. That unease is understandable. The lack of conviction in the leaders’ utterances is palpable.

Perhaps some of them do not want to because the agitation is after all paying them reasonable dividends – politically and financially too.

Otherwise, how else do we understand the continuing carping?

    When? Where? Is that in your dreams?

    Why Do Telangana Agitators Persist?

    Because movements that take birth from true people’s aspirations do persist, just like how our freedom stuggle persisted for centuries. Agitations created artificially with the help of money and media power for the selfish interests of individuals will pour like a thunderstorm within hours and evaporate in notime just like our samaikyandhra agitation and jai andhra agitation.

    These individuals who create artificial agitations can takeup any argument to suite their selfish interests. The fact that same elements who agitated for Jaiandhra in 72 started samaikyandhra agita<tion later proves this point.

    The movement seems to go in swings. It made some feeble noises in 1952-56 and then vanished …screamed high in 1969 and winded up afters its chief proponent got a CM post of samaikyaandhra. Achieved limelight again from 1999 as revenge of a slighted TDP MLA.

    When will the movement break out of these swings and permanently end? 1) As soon as the hold of feudal classes weaken in Telangana region beyond a point.This is bound to occur as consequence of rising literacy and education levels in the region.2) Political system matures and political leaders don’t think the hassle of dividing people , spreading acrimony is worth the possible reward.

    Thanks,

      No movement can sustain with same aggression all the time. After the first rebillion in 1857 when was the next occurance in Indian freedom striggle?

      When will the movement break out of these swings and permanently end?
      As and When Telangana state formation happens.

      As soon as the hold of feudal classes weaken in Telangana
      The fact is that hold of feudal classes weakened long back in Telangana when Telanganaites faught against feaudal lords in the armed struggle. It is in Telangana that land sealing act has been implemented in the state. It is in Telangana taht more and more politicians emerge from middle and lower classes.

      Unforunately seemandhra region is still under the “kabandha hastaalu” of these feaudal lords. These feaudalist, factionist forces lately turned as politico businessmen and obstructing Telangana formation. The same feudal forces started Jai Andhra movement previously when PV tried to implement land sealing act in Seemandhra.

    Its common thing for a person in feudal class to say there is no feudalism just one expects OC to say there is no casteism. But Telangana made progress and the state authority of AP massively helped that progress. But it not enough to prevent people from dora classes exploiting “sentiment” (aided by lot of lies) among the masses. That needs to change.

    Feudal classes in coastal have transformed themselves with some success in to modern market oriented capital classes.This is a transformation that did not happen with much success among Telangana feudal classes. They believe they can achieve it with exclusive political control of Hyderabad.This is one of driving factors of separate telangana. But this should not drive any of us who are opposed to caste based feudalism or capitalism.

    For all its ills united AP is the best guarantor against any rabid community based dominance. Sections of people in telangana who are not under much influence of “doras” such as Muslims in Hyderabad understand it well hence you dont find much support there. But the caste based telugu populations are weaker in resolve against feudal propaganda.

      I don’t understand a word. if you draw conclusion that I am from “dora” class I advice you to avoid drawing conclusions about things that you do not know, either about me or about Telangana both of which are far from your imaginations.

      Feudal classes in coastal have transformed themselves with some success in to modern market oriented capital classes.This is a transformation that did not happen with much success among Telangana feudal classes.

      It is not enough to make wild guesses of your own, you need to provide supporting logic or proofs. It Seemandhra which is in the grips of factionists and casteist politics, not Telangana. It is Telangana in which more and more politicians emerged from backward classes.

      Unfortunately in Telangana some ex-dora class people are MLAs and MPs in the ruling congress party and always against Telangana. Now they are forced to support Telangana only to escape from the anger of people. But all the BCs and dalits in Telangana are whole heartedly supporting Telangana movement.

      Infact even majority of Dalits and BCs in Seemandhra region are supporting Telangana cause as they believe that in smaller states it is easier for weaker sections to grow. “Dalit mahasabha” meeting headed by Kathi Padamarao has openly supported Telangana cause in public meeting. Unfortunately the feaudalist politico factionist casteist seemandhra forces have money and media power and overpowering the weaker sections demands.

      A failed arrangement can never be the best solution.

      Sections of people in telangana who are not under much influence of “doras” such as Muslims in Hyderabad understand it well hence you dont find much support there.

      Muslims in Telangana and majority muslims in Hyderabad are supporting Telangana and fighting for Telangana. The reason why Majlis and its supporters do not support Telangana is because they are the heirs of razakar Razvi and they are afraid that they will be pinned down in Telangana. But why do samaikyavadis take shelter from the opinions of Quasim Razwi heirs?
