Telangana issue


Establishing a State will not eradicate poverty, illiteracy, unemployment and inequality (July 6). An amicable solution to the Telangana issue is the need of the hour. There has to be a mechanism where regionalism will be addressed without affecting national integrity. But the political class, instead of creating an amicable relationship among the regions, seems only to be fuelling implacable hatred.

Telangana may be a so-called backward area but there are a number of such regions in India. Does this mean that all of them must be given statehood? Innocent youth spearheading the agitation appear to have become pawns in the hands of the political class. Eliminating corruption, and not a separate state, is the key to development.

The editorial “End this drift on Telangana” (July 6) was well-intentioned. The need of the hour is political consensus.
