In 1952, a ‘gentleman’ by the monikker of Potti Sreeramulu succeeded in rabble rousing and dividing India on linguistic lines. The then PM, Mr Nehru had no courage to take these people on. This set the rot and the Congress started using this tool of taking sides with rabble rousers, minorities et all and brand it as ‘secular”.
We are now at the cross roads again. Telengana agitation is one which will decide whether India will remain united for some more time or we will see a 100 states bloom in a few years. Telengana is only the beginning. Soon we will have other fights, whether it is in Karnataka or Maharashtra or Bengal or Rajasthan.
Congress has always found it advantageous to divide people by race, caste and every possible way to pretend to be ‘secular’ and take the easy way out of crises.
When Potti wanted Andhra, he also wanted Madras to be the capital of Andhra. Then as a compromise, Kurnool was chosen. Hyderabad was later. Now, Telengana will want Hyderabad as capital!! That time, a Nehru put the first wedge in dividing India. Today, a family member, thru a proxy PM will put the wedge that will sub divide India!!
Let the Pottis of the world immolate themselves or fast unto or beyond death. So many traitors to India less.
