I demand my own state (comprises 2 localities in Hyderabad)

I am writing this post just to inform you guys that I am going to sit on a hunger strike after lunch today and won't eat anything till my demands are not met (or atleast till dinner time).

And before you start dubbing me (rightfully) publicity hungry (or some such adjective) let me tell you that my demands are perfectly valid. I am demanding for a new state on the same basis as all other new states are being demanded.

I want a new state for the areas of Kondapur and Madhapur in Hyderabad. (See map if you are not aware of the geography.) We call it 'Makonchal' . You will appreciate that this name follows the naming convention of North Indian states like Purvanchal, Mithilanchal, Uttaranchal. (MAdhapur+ KOndapur+Anchal see how ingenious!)

Below are the reasons why my demands must be met:

1) Since there are so many North Indians in this area, culture and language of this area is different from rest of Hyderabad and even from rest of AP/Telangana/Rayalseema/North Coastal AP/South Coastal AP/other 432517 divisions of AP. And how dare you suggest that we can live in harmony with rest of people who don't share these extremely critical properties of Humanity! If Garos and Khasis living in Meghalaya can demand for separate states why can't we. (Umm I guess number of Northies in Hyderabad would roughly be same as total population of Meghalaya..)

2) These areas are mostly occupied by upper and upper middle class people, so state gets more revenue from these areas which is 'diverted' to other areas of city and not utilized in 'development' of these areas. (Ignore the fact that most of the people here don't vote during elections!) No, I won't accept that analogy that Mumbai supports rest of Maharashtra. Call us selfish but our money is JUST our money. (You see the money from these areas is going in pockets of netas of other areas. What is this? Our money should go in the pockets of netas of our own area na!)

Now you see my point? Aren't my demands perfectly valid?

Umm, did I mention that I am ready to bear the responsibility of being the CM as well!

The rate at which states are getting divided, no wonder that next movement will be actually as you rightly say - "City division". And further so...locality divisions.
Considering so many serious issues are lying unattended, I wonder how do these politicians have the audacity to focus on issues like these weird "divisions"!

My Complete support to you.. Jai Jai Makonchal ;)

saleem said...

Your demand is perfectly valid!!!!!
We all know what is best for us but those who understand the problem and well known about consequences(People like us), are busy achieving targets or getting better jobs and those who dont understand are used by Neta's to get their Sweetdish ready.

All i want to say is we have to be the change we want to see........

Thanks Naveen and Neelima.
Dipti and Rathi, bazaar laga nahin chor pahle aa gaye!
Kanupriya and Saleem: Maybe we should not brush off such demands just as politicians' handiwork. The fact that such demands arise from backward areas is indicative of people's unrest. Uniform development and inclusive growth is the key if we want country to be unified!
