Setback To KCR, TJAC Leaders Arrested
Hyderabad: What is happening in Telangana on Wednesday is an indication of failure of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao (KCR) to be accommodative. His attitudinal problem is causing a lot of unavoidable trouble for the people of Telangana. While he is involved in thanksgiving at Tirumal at the cost of State’s exchequer, the leaders who fought for Telangana State shoulder to shoulder with him are being taken into custody by the police. This is a setback for KCR who has been otherwise perceived as a good politician and able administrator.
The turn of events is unexpected and uncalled for. Had the State government shown a bit of reconciliatory attitude, managing Telangana Joint Action Committee (TJAC) would not have been difficult. The affidavit submitted by the government in the High Court on Tuesday is full of contradictions, according to the observers. The students have been seething with anger at the could-not-care-less attitude of the government. What they are demanding is the implementation of the promise that has been made not only in the election manifesto but throughout the 14-year movement for separate State.
