Telangana - A Burning Andhra Pradesh

Telangana has been formed by the central government. Telangana will be in south central area of India and Hyderabad is the major city. The other area of current Andhra Pradesh is to be called Seemandhra.
There are advantages to the politicians because more the states will imply more will be VIPs. And there was pressure from some politicians and student unions for Telangana. However common people in Seemandhra were against the division of the state as a division in a state means loss of pride and interference from people unconcerned on internal matters, among other reasons.
We all have been following formation of new states. Uttarakhand from Uttar Pradesh; Jharkhand from Bihar; Chattisgarh from Madhya Pradesh. Also Darjeeling from West Bengal.
Narendra Modi (the BJP leader) has said that the formation of Uttarakhand, Jharkhand, Chattisgarh made people happy and people exchanged sweets. On the other hand, Telangana is resulting in distress among people and violence. Also it may be noted that Darjeeling formation seemed sudden and without adequate preparations. Most of the commoners felt it was unexpected.
Telangana state will give voice to people of South India and I feel they will be heard in international arena. Because of powerful Muslim brothers in the Telangana region. It might be considered positive from this angle. But no one can predict future and what was the need to form Telangana before elections is a matter worth pondering.
