We The People

Telangana erupted with joy after the UPA government finally conceded to the demand for the creation of a separate state following the fast-unto-death undertaken by TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao 11 days ago, which whipped up a frenzy in the entire region. While it is cheerful news for the Telangana region, it is not so for the Andhra and Rayalaseema regions. The issue of who would get Hyderabad is yet to be settled.
Overall this seems to open up the Pandora's Box with Centre receiving representations for creation of Harit Pradesh or Kisan Pradesh consisting several districts of Western Uttar Pradesh and at least nine other new states, including Mithilanchal in Bihar, Coorg in Karnataka, Gorkhaland in West Bengal and Saurashtra in Gujarat to name a few.

This week on We The People, we will be discussing THE SMALL STATES DEMAND: Is it weakening India and promoting regionalism? Please do send us your comments and feedback. Don't forget to catch the debate on Sunday, 13th December, 2009 at 8pm only on NDTV 24x7 10 years ago
