Re: Kerala, Andhra and Tamil Nadu - news and strategy thread

The toxic social structure has survived the coming and going of unified AP state. Very real. The real purpose of division of AP is to give AP to Jagan/EJ s and Telangana to Muslims. That aim is largely attained. AIMIM now going to be a national party with Owaisi as the Neo Jinna. Jagan and his gang...

The Telugu people of Telangana were either landowning feudals (a very tiny minority) who were subservient to the nawabi aristo...

It is interesting that folks who live in Kukatpally bang in the middle of TS capital are bitter about AP not getting special status. They have to decide whether they are with TS or with AP. If the latter, why the heck are they in Kukatpally? They can liquidate their assets and get in on the ground ...
