DK Aruna, Minister in last cabinet has brought up the issue of sub-regionalism in criticizing KCR and TRS. Addressing a meeting in Mahabub Nagar yesterday, which happened around the same time as the Gadwal meeting of TRS, she has said that people are not ready for the domination of “Uttara Telangana” over “Dakshina Telangana”. She has objected to the TRS proposal to break up Mahabub Nagar in the future Telangana state. She has said that under developed southern districts like MahabubNagar are not ready to be dominated by Northern district leaders from Karim Nagar etc.
The Telangana region has just achieved the break away from the Seemandhra domination after a lengthy 60 year fight and a political leader, that too a female from a dominant community political family chooses to bring up division in the young society over narrow district limitations. Such myopic politically motivated evocation of emotions need to be curbed in the bud to guarantee sustenance of present unity and amity, watchers say.
