Telangana - Rosaiah Govt. In Danger
Resignations galore, and state plunges into turmoil.
Hyderabad | 11th December 2009
With PRP and TDP doing a blatant volte face on the Telangana issue, and 96 MLAs having submitted their resignations to the speaker of the Assembly, the spotlight on the celebrations over Sonia’s decision to concede to KCR’s demands has been dimmed significantly.
All parties – TDP, Congress & PRP – have been split along regional lines, and the AICC chief had to placate flaring tempers by agreeing to “take all views into account”.
Andhra and Seema are on a bandh today – with several business associations having called for a strike, commercial centres being closed, RTC buses having been taken off the roads, and rallies being conducted. And the rest of the country is now on a roll with several statehood demands raising their ugly heads.
KCR, who ended his 11-day fast yesterday, will remain in NIMS for the next few days
Meanwhile, there are concerns over what the status of Hyderabad will be once a new state is formed. One of the first sectors to be hit is the real estate industry, and concerns over the magnitude of the effect are rising.
Though there are questions being raised in the House over the majority status of the Rosaiah government, speaker Kiran Kumar Reddy has categorically stated that the resignations of the MLAs are far from final – he is yet to meet each of the MLAs in person and take a binding decision.
