Does Telangana deserve to be a Separate State? |

    • Is KCR truly the new Mahatma?
    • It all started when none of us were born. Telangana was a separate entity and it was ruled by Muslim dynasties, whereas Andhra and Seema were governed by Hindu rulers. The Muslim Asafjahi dynasty established a separate state known as Hyderabad. When the British began their rule in India, Andhra and Seema became a part of the Madras Presidency.
    • The Hyderabad state was very rich in terms of the wealth the Nizams had and also the wealth which the state generated through taxes. Alcohol, for example, was not banned here (like in Andhra or Seema) but it was taxed, thus generating copious amounts of revenue. The Andhra and Seema regions too were very well developed, but the people led a simple plain life, quite happy with music, art, culture etc.
