The new state of Telangana has finally been achieved and after becoming the first Chief Minister of the state, KCR has been coming up with various initiatives reflecting the pride of Telangana. One such project was the Bathukamma festival with a Rs 10 crore budget. However, it looks like even this faced some resistance.

The Bathukamma festival is strongly followed in the south region of Telangana whereas the northern part is not that particular. However, some of the political opponents and ruling MLAs of opposition parties have alleged that the Bathukamma thing was being forced upon them against their interest.

Whether it was purely an act of politicizing an issue or not, it is generally believed that the Bathukamma culture is not that prominent in the north Telangana region. However, the efforts being made by the TRS government might revive it in that region as well. For now, the Gadabida might be on.
