According to the note shown by NTV, Congress party has actual come up with a proposal to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh into two states. One will be the ‘State of Andhra’ and other will be ‘State of Hyderabad’. Andhra will include all of coastal districts with Kadapa and Chittoor included. Coming to Hyderabad state, in includes Kurnool, Anantapur and Telangana districts. Also a priority package will be given to Andhra State, while three other packages will also be given for the sake of development of these two states. Political analysts however say that Congress is taking this step only for the sake of saving vote banks in their favour. But how far this is acceptable to people of Andhra, Rayalaseema and Telangana has to be seen.
On the flip side, Rayalaseema leaders are not ready for the split of their region and they are seeking separate Rayalaseema state. Coming to Telangana, the region’s leaders are demanding a separate state comprised only of 10 T-districts. Coming to Andhra, many are inclining towards ‘United Andhra’, while some are demanding special Coastal state. Let us see how it goes.
