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.
