AP Post Bifurcation - Think Twice Before You Cast Your Vote
The proposed division is only to get a political mileage. All parties have played this card to gain mileage, but not in the interest of the people of the State of Andhra Pradesh. As regards AP State Re organization Bill, the UPA Government went ahead for bifurcation without consulting the aggrieved parties. CWC announcement is a rather, political announcement.

The Central Govt. should have taken into account other political parties before coming to a conclusion. Its argument that they have already consulted the parties earlier is not proper. There is lot of gap between earlier consultations and CWC announcement. How can the UPA Government seek the opinion of other parties without expressing the opinion of UPA parties?

‘In Comprehensive Bill’ got the clearance of both the houses of the Parliament. The BJP, main opposition party in both the houses was clear in its stand on the issue since a long time. It was the prime duty of the Government and the Congress to do equal justice for both regions of the State. Before the Bill was presented, BJP and others expected the Government to do equal justice.

The Home Ministry placed such an important draft bill before the Cabinet and the Government was adamant to push through the bill within no time and the stubbornness of not mentioning the amendments sought in the bill did complicate the situation. Keeping in view of the upcoming general elections and disunity prevailed among Congressmen and other regional parties concerned given an shot in arm, the committed parties, Congress and BJP were forced to go ahead and pass the bill, whether they gain or lose. BJP as main opposition did its level best to corner the ruling party on the issue in the Rajya Sabha and did extract benefits to both regions to a certain extent and got the Bill passed.

As the 'In Comprehensive Bill', which has been passed with amendments may not be able to satisfy the people of both regions. The people of both the Telangana and Andhra Pradesh should now force both the BJP and Congress to stick to the promise and assurances given in the Parliament on the bifurcation issue.

The Congress has done its job of bifurcating the State, it is up to the people of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh to press the BJP to include in its manifesto to do necessary constitutional amendments etc and fulfill it as it is promising to do 100% justice to both regions after it is elected to power in the centre.

The voters should take it for granted the assurances of the regional parties as well as the national parties what they are saying in their manifesto about solving the Post Bifurcation problems. They should act in a matured way by electing a strong government both in centre and states to get things done to their satisfaction in better and amicable way.
