The Centre’s Telangana verdict apparently has more far-reaching ramifications than were probably considered. There’s state-wide uproar, in the coastal regions and in Rayalaseema. Ministers and common citizens alike are questioning the Government’s unilaterally made decision, that is seen as having come about without consulting all sides concerned.
Congress MP Lagadapati has resigned, and is among the several Congress politicians hailing from coastal Andhra and Seema who have submitted their resignations. The TDP is also under revolt.
Those who have resigned include Katasani Rami Reddy, Yelamanchili Ravi, TDP MLA Prasad, TDP MLA Paritala Sunitha, Rajya Sabha MP Mysoora Reddy, Vijayawada Mayor Mallika Begum Saha, MLA Sai Pratap. There are reports that Assembly speaker Kiran Kumar Reddy might resign.
With a total of 80 MLAs (Congress-39, TDP-38, PRP-13) having submitted their resignations to the Speaker, Rosaiah’s government is under threat. Seemingly, so is the Manmohan Singh government at the centre.
More details are awaited.

What a mess. Simply unbelievable. Destroying public property, harassing citizens and indulging in wanton violence...what has the state come to?
I'm a Hyderabadi and we have lived here for at least 70 years but I can't see how breaking up a state will solve anything.
Just for argument's sake let us say Telangana has been formed and Hyd is the capital. Now what? Will thousands of competent people working for pvt companies be kicked out? Will all non-Telengana people get evicted? Ethnic cleansing to follow?
All these bloody politicians and their goondas need to be lined up and shot.
How will the creation of a separate state alleviate the Poverty and economic issues of the backward regions of Telangana? Is the creation of a separate state the comprehensive solution or even a first step towards addressing these problems? If the same politicians couldn't address these issues in a unified AP , what special powers will enable them to do so in a fragmented AP? Why couldnt a fast have been undertaken to provide the telangana people with jobs , housing security?
Why cant the "educated : students understand these simple facts?
Do the people of AP realise that they have fallen prey to the same kind of emotional blackmail and tactics which they are so quick to snigger and attribute to the minority right wing elements of Mumbai?
