Resignations reached 100 mark – Centre is stable

 

Telangana MLA resignations reached 100 mark in Andhra Pradesh with the TRS, CPI and BJP  joining the league of resignations.

I would like to summarize the developments took place in New Delhi and Andhra Pradesh.

1) High command warned resigned Congress representatives by claiming they have trapped in padmayvuha. But, they are still continuing the consultations without making any progress.

2) Chidamabaram ruled out the possibility of  imposing presidential rule in Andhra Pradesh by sending a signal that central govt is not likely to take any risk at this chaotic juncture. He stressed for the importance of consultations and dailogues.

3) National media gave much importance to the political developments regarding Telangana. They says that bubble is burst and it is time for to take appropriate decision.

4) Manda Krishna Madiga meeting with Jagan made another political development in Andhra Pradesh. Soon after the meeting,  he attacked on political parties citing that they have do  not any plans for the welfare and role of scheduled castes in the supposed Telangana state.

A new questioned posed in political circles, what Manda Krishna have discussed  with Jagan. Why Manda Krishna came forward to media after a long gap, just after meeting with Jagan.

5) Political forces in Seemandhra awakened and cautiously watching the developments. They have made all the necessary arrangements to pose a counter movement in protest of Telangana.  No information is available, what Lagadapati have had discussed with Pranab.

6) Government officers NGO’s and student organizations in Telangana announced a rout map to intensify the movement of Telangana by doing mass movements, rail rokos, gheraos etc. According to the reliable sources, Telangana employee associations are  likely to announce pen down or indefinite strike in couple of days.

7) As usual, Chandra Babu went to under curtain. He could not make single statement on the latest political developments.  Kiran Kumar Reddy was flabbergasted and preferred not to make any comment. He just handed over the entire scene to Congress High Command.

Dams cause floods?

 

India recorded massive floods in Bihar, Arunachala Pradesh, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh in the last 6 months. India has been facing peculiar kind of crisis of either floods or droughts. Some notable economists used to say that countries could grapple in war for acquiring water resources. Reality superseded their supposition. Even states posing one on one for water resources. Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka have been fighting for  their share of water in rivers of Krishna and Kaveri. They have built huge and massive dams to store water to meet the needs of state requirement.

Deccan region recorded a massive rainfall of  five times more than average annual rainfall within a 5 days span. Lakhs of people have been displaced and hundreds of have been hacked to death in this catastrophe. This devastation raised myriad of questions on the validity of huge dams. we are just damaging the natural beauty and flow of rivers which exist from thousands of years in the name of technological advancement and infrastructural development. Huge and Jumbo dams breaks the natural drainage and river beds to  raise due to silting. USA has already started removing outdated and ecological damaged dams. New York Times paper calls the ‘age of dam removal’ in USA

Ideology deviated ?

 

Parakala Prabhakar, political unemployee who came of out from praja rajyam party, found solace in organising workshops and seminars in ‘vishalandhra mahasabha’  which founded in the last month. No matter is available, till now, who has funded this organisation. But, the organisation has succesfully attracted the intellctual faces including K.P.S Gill, Kuldeep Nayyar and Sanjaya Baru.

Parakala Prabhakar, alumni of prestigious London School of Economics, has entered politics by joining Congress. Later, he has served in BJP, TDP and PRP. He could not get a mp  seat in PRP.  He made a foul cry on PRP by referring it as  ‘piosonous tree’ by showing his anguish for not getting ticket.

Before joining PRP,  he used to host the famous TV programme  pratidwani which has acclaimed positive reports and feedback from the different sections. After his political debacle in PRP, he has again tried to test his luck as anchor, but the attempt remained wild goose chase.

Dual standards of Parakala

Parakala was with BJP, when it made a resolution of  ‘oka votu rendu rastraalu’.  But, no information is available which suggests Parakala objected with the BJP decision of  favoring seperate state to Telangana. During his tenure as Chief Spokes Person in PRP, he made numerous statements supporting the cause of Telangana state.

“We want the State to be divided like brothers in a family. We respect the ‘atma gouravam’ and ‘atma abhimanam’ of the Telangana people and we said we will never come in the way if separation is necessary”

– Parakala as a PRP  chief spokes person

Why such mediocrity, dual standards and opportunism presents in Parakala, I could not understand.  He did not utter a single word/statement against Telangana when he had been to various political parties and as a popular anchor. Did money make such strategic ideological shift in Parakala?

“The BJP stand on the matter is very clear from the beginning. We have taken one line on Telengana that in 1997 BJP had passed a resolution on bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh. BJP has always been in favour of smaller states. It is in favour of Telengana”

Nirmala Sitharaman, Spokes person, BJP

An interesting aspect about Parakala is, his wife Nirmala Sitaraman is acting as spokes person of Bharatiya Janatha Party which raising the slogan of  Telangana state at national level. How can Parakala convince other people despite his own wife is indirectly supporting the Telangana state ? Parakala can only answer the inevitable and pertinent question.

Anarchic pradesh

 

Democracy has been mocked and its very foundations have been devastated in Andhra Pradesh. Telangana state issue triggered political chaos and instability by dividing the entire state into regions and sub regions including students, politicians and elite intellectuals.

Law and order, administration, works have been kept under pending by driving the state into stagnation. Hyderabad, once called as icon of cosmopolitanism, turned as center of xenophobia. Central and state governments utterly failed to handle the situation smoothly and gently by releasing tens of contradictory official statement from union home minsitry. Their reckless behavior made the situation worst and uncontrollable.Politicians from same political party orchestrating different stages at two different regions provoking and fooling the people by contanstly changing their views and ideas.

Universities of Telangana region have been playing crucial role in leading the separate state agitation by moving politicians into secondary role. State government has been trying to suppress movement ant any cost by pressurizing University vice chancellors to conduct examinations which could side side track the attention and concentration of students from Telangana agitation to exams. Still now, more than five times, exams have been postponed due to the heavy flak from students who are reluctant to take part in exams untill Telangana issue resolved.

Govt made nefarious designs to break down the movement by sending wrong signals to central government and intelligence departments claiming  Maoists and anti social elements entered movement in the guise of students. Solution for Telangana puzzle may not be sought in single night due to the limitations of democracy and its applicability in multicultural and diversified India.We cannot expect an instant solution to this tricky conundrum. Government and Police department started targeting student leaders and active agitators by imprisoning them into custody by booking baseless and needless sections. Brutal lati charges have been orchestrated by police men in osmania universitiy and Kakatiya university by man handling the students at any cost by questioning the validity of human rights. Telangana turned as a police state. Whatever the reactions, nefarious designs and plans made by Government and Police authorities to dislocate Telangana movement would make situation much worst. We cannot expect restoration of peace in near future as long as autocratic Government fails to understand the aspirations and sentiments of  tens of millions of people.

Kancha Ilaiah- Dalit Idealogue

kancha Ilaiah, Professor of political science of Osmania University, is considered as as part of influential trinity(Kancha Ilaiah,Bojja Taarakam and Katti Padma rao) who strive progressive Dalit movement and politics in Andhra Pradesh. There is a wide belief among general public that Kancha Ilaiah has dalit background but he hailed from OBC of “Golla” caste. Despite his scholarly experience in political science, he came to lime light with historical research papers and strong criticisms on Brahmanism, higher castes and Hindus. He is enough proud to consider himself as anti Hindu. He baptized Buddhism and wrote several research papers on buddhist history and philosophy.

His famous work “why iam not a hindu” acclaimed positive and negative responses from intellectual and scholars from different parts of the world. Some eminent historians like Romilla Thapar tagged Ilaiah as a pseudo historian who approached several fictions to dalit history and thoughts. According to Ilaiah, Hinduism is nothing but a Brahmanism which done a massive cultural destruction of backward classes and dalits. He urges for the need of literacy among dalits and backword classes.Being a Dalit sympathizer, He staunchly supports the candidacy of Mayawathi for prime minister of India by calling Marxists to support her. ” Hindusim is the only religion in which gods wear destructible weapons and tries to justify the bloody violence” says Kancha ilaiah in several interviews.

Vangapandu’s Remix of revolutionary song

vangapandu

Iam not a communist, but I have a  respect towards communists and socialist school of writers due to my respect towards great Karl Marx . What Vangapandu wrote and praised the late YSR with his famous “Em Pillado” song is a perfect instance of deep rooted hypocrisy. I wondered with his blackmailing attitude with Allu Aravind during  em “pillado song” controversy which is said to have incorporated in blockbuster hit “Magadheera” without prior notice to Vangapandu. He used to question the validity of democracy and political leaders claiming political power at the cost of inequalities at soceity. Worst thing is he even praised YS Jagan claiming he is the perfect scion of YSR political kingdom. He lost his credibilty as a true socialist artist.Vangapandu turned as a shame to  revolutionary writers and artists associations which have  commendable history across Andhra Pradesh social and political movements from decades. Vangapandu will remain among bourgeois club for his deliberate appeasement of YSR family.
