What constitutes a *win* for Andhrites *given* that Telanganas wants to break out of the alliance for in large part real grievances in addition to some perceived ones.
Further who are these Andhrites we should consider:
Those who are in Hyd/and rest of Telangana
Those who are still leading their joyful life backhome in Andhra with similar problems as everyone else in India.
*Andhra* folks in Hyd (and elsewhere in Telangana): We should recognize that the primary resistance is coming from these folks in large parts and are being extermely unreasonable towards Telanganas.
These folks have been in Telangana for quite some time grown, prospered, integrated to a fault by Telanganas into there own. You would probably recognize that where you have andhrite concentrations in parts of Hyd/or overall Telangana were voluntary formations themselves with/without any external impetus. Further over the years these families have integrated with those of Telanganas. As I keep mentioning Telanganas have far more diversity than any other part of AP so we should spare them from being given lessons in *inclusivity*. The issues are that of governance.
Concerns (perceived and real) of these folks should be met in so far as their interests be current and future safeguarded in Telangana by ensuring no laws can be passed that make these folks targets. All growth initiatives will continue and given further impetus. This is a WIN for these folks.
Folks living backhome in Andhra and facing everyday issues as everyone else in India can't be more happier if they can play better role in governance and if it becomes approachable. All the negative synergies in the bureaucracy will mean humongous job growth (as it is proving from current global turmoil - jobs are the #1 factor in growing/sustain local economies), new power centers, localised issues getting more focused and in general they will be able to carve out a destiny of their choice with less distraction (overall the same benefits as telangana would get). THIS IS A WIN for these folks.
I can't imagine how this news can be bad for the Andhites living backhome. There are some uber jihadis who fear phantom issues of water being in someone else's control, or power related resources are in someone else's control etc. All these are phantom issues because the more we become market driven these issues will come to pass.
But the real unsaid issue that Seemandhra fail to bring up is how they split power/capital etc between Rayalaseema and Coastal Andhras. This hidden fear/concern is what overshadows reaching an obvious agreement on Telangana - this is being unfair to Telanganas.
IMO, first of all, a)capital has to be in Coastal Andhra perferable in the heartland of Krishna dist which can be reached by all even though northern districts will still be far. b) resources to establish capital is minuscule relative to the growth this will spur, growth that is ammased in the region, and what ever additional is needed can be raised from capital markets.
Telanganas ofcourse want nothing but what is Telangana at the merger and be left to themselves to carve a destiny of their choice with less distraction. THIS IS A WIN for these folks.
