In a remarkable shift from the acerbic words and accusations, there was some bonhomie witnessed yesterday as part of the Bathukamma celebrations in Khammam district. It is a known fact that Khammam district is home to more of Andhras than natives of Telangana.
This again represents a unique synthesis of culture, when compared to Andhras of Hyderabad who have always maintained a distinct identity. Yesterday as part of Koti Bathukamma Jaatara, TRS MP and KCR’s daughter Kavitha took part in the festivities. She was present at Prakasam ground in Kothagudem which is a hub of Andhras.
Dancing with Andhra women, Kavitha expressed her appreciation for them saying that they never had any problem with Andhra people. She reportedly reiterated that they are only against vested interests of Telangana. TRS leaders from Khammam and Andhra women celebrated Bathukamma with pomp and gaiety! This has become the latest and biggest festival of Telangana.
