In another controversial decision Telangana CM showed his intensity to wipe out Andhra traditions completely out of Telangana. This time he announced that from now on only Telangana festivals will get importance and as such Batukamma and Dasara festivals will get 15 days holidays where as Sankranthi, predominantly, Andhra festival will get only 2 days holidays.
This may pain many and hurt the sentiments of people since festivals will be celebrated cutting across regions. However KCR with the state divided is keen on implementing his agenda in the guise of Telangana sentiment.
He feels Telangana festivals and culture has been suppressed by Andhra rule and now he wants Telangana state to regain its identity and culture. Wonder how everyone reacts to KCR’s decisions. Already some of his decisions are drawing severe flak not only from experts and scholars but also from courts.
