The UP result which evicted the sitting CM at the electorate only goes on to prove the disapproval of people for the state divide says TDP.
The Uttar Pradesh translated into our language only means no partition say the Telugu Desam Party Members on Tuesday. The results announced yesterday only goes to emphasize the disapproval of the general public over the proposed split of four smaller states as announced by the UP’s Former Chief Minister Mayawati. The CM’s party BSP lost miserably in the hands of the Samajwadi Party. This was a lesson to be learnt by the Andhra leaders who would face similar fate, if they prophesy partition says TDP leader P. Keshav. "People have taught a lesson to those trying to draw political mileage in the name of division of the state (Uttar Pradesh). This should be an eye-opener for (Andhra Pradesh) parties which are making similar attempts," he added.
But Telangana supporters differed over his claims. They said, the fight for Telangana state was entirely different from the situation in the northern state. Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) legislator K. Tarakarama Rao said, "It is not proper to draw a parallel between the two. The Telangana movement was more than four decades old.”
There was equal amounts of agree and disagree from both the sides. The Telangana agitation to carve a separate Telangana state from the erstwhile unified Andhra Pradesh has been going on since long. The intensity was much higher same time last year. But right now seems to be under control. On the whole it is a dormant volcano, which will erupt at any moment, courtesy to the centre’s hasty announcements in 2009. (With inputs from internet: AarKay)
