Creation of Telangana State – A suicidal decision?
Government of India has decided to initiate the process of formation of separate Telangana state bifurcating the existing state of Andhra Pradesh. This decision was taken by the Indian Government after the meeting between Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister.
Isn’t this a suicidal decision taken by the Central Government? Doesn’t it encourage the other regional parties/forces to take up agitation to creation of separate states? Is it good in a diverse country like India to have regionalism take over nationalism? We have seen lot of examples in the history what will happen to countries when regionalism takes over nationalism. The disintegration of elsewhere Yugoslavia is a best example. Hopefully India doesn’t follow that path.
