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.

Another two eye theory

 

Y S Jaganmohana Reddy, president of the newly born YSR congress party, is adopted the similar approach of Chandra Babu two eye theory and congress chaotic handling.  Jagan says,  in the party plenary meeting at Idupulaya, YSR congress party is understood the the Telangana sentiment and its intensity among the masses.  He says,  YSR congress is not in a position to give or to obstruct the Telangana state.

People of Telangana and Seemandhra regions were anxious to know the party stand of YSR Congress, they were in a hope Jagan will announce a clear and lucid stand unlike Chandrababu and congress. Jagan words shattered their dreams and hopes. Jagan  was cautious and calculative in using the terminology when he was  describing his party stand on Telangana.  He did not make clear whether his YSR congress party  will support or denounce  Telangana state.

Now, it is pretty clear,  Jagan has  joined the bandwagon of  conventional political parties which have been politicizing the very essential issue for their electoral interests in the respective regions.

An interesting twist is Jagan admonished Chandra babu and Congress party for their indecisiveness regarding Telangana. Jagan must realize  whether he has moral right to criticize the respective political parties as he himself emerged another indecisive creature in Andhra Pradesh politics.

We are not in a position to give Telangana or stop Telangana. But YSR Congress respects Telangana sentiment.It is responsibility of the Central government to give a solution satisfying all sections because the power to make a new state also lies only with the Central government.

–  Y.S Jagan Mohan Reddy, President, YSR Congress Party

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.
