Demand For Telangana State is Growing Stronger

The demand for Telangana State is now becoming stronger. In the month of December, there has been a lot of unrest in the Telangana region and some people even committed suicide. However, the situation is very complicated because right now Telangana area belongs to the state of Andhra Pradesh and here, people are divided into two groups. One group is strongly supporting the formation of Telangana State while the other group totally against it.
Indian media these days are containing many reports on this issue.
Hindustan Times reported:
Rallies, hunger strikes and demonstrations continued for the fourth consecutive day on Saturday in Andhra Pradesh's Telangana region, where the demand for a separate state keeps gaining momentum.
Protests were held by activists of all political parties, students, lawyers and other sections of society in the region comprising 10 districts, including Hyderabad.
Though the all-party Joint Action Committee (JAC) has declared that there would be no shutdown at least till Monday, protesters continued to stage road and rail blockades at some places. Several short distance trains had to be cancelled.

Times of India reported:
Congress MPs from Telangana on Thursday tendered their resignations to the party leadership in a bid to match the angry response from TRS. Ministers in the Rosaiah government from the region too put in their papers in protest.

Let us hope that this issue does not go out of control and violence does not take place anymore. Indian central government needs to be more active.
