Tasting the domino's affect of Telangana, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee says, "Telangana does not mean new states everywhere. The demand for Telangana was old. Its different!"
Yes, Telangana is different!! But Pranab Da didn't get the real difference yet.
In all other regional agitations, the region (typically neglected & is geographicallly far from state capitals) wanted to separate from the state. But in case of Telangana, the region which is around the state capital (Hyderabad), wants to run away with the capital!!
Indeed, it is much more easy to grant statehood to Vidarbha, Gurkha Land, Bodoland, Bundelkhand, Coorg or for that matter the most recent states like Jarkhand, Chhattisgarh, Uttaranchal. Note that, none of these states carry the state capital with them.
As usual, our moronic politicians didn't understand that they are playing with chilly sauce. It's different!
