Responsibilities of Elites
Delay in Telangana formation dividing populace: Gurumurthy
26th August 2013
Bharat Columnist S Gurumurthy on Sunday
observed that the delay in creation of Telangana was creating divisive
Answering questions posted by audience at a meeting organised by the
Bharat Vikas Parishad here, Gurumurthy said that Telangana should have
been formed a long time ago.
“There is nothing wrong in division of States. When Chhattisgarh was
created nothing happened. However, holding back the decision to
bifurcate Andhra Pradesh is creating contra feeling among people, which
is dangerous”, he added.
To a query on Naxalism, he pointed out that the Naxalites issue was
dealt with an iron hand in Andhra Pradesh with huge investments in the
Telangana region and it changed the situation. Stressing that the
problem pertaining to Naxalites is the fall out of driving tribals out
of forests, he said, their livelihood and herbal production were taken
“In most of the tribal States, non-tribals are intruding into their
area. About 50 per cent of the population in Jharkhand were outsiders,”
he stressed. Tribals, he said, have their own God, religion and society
and lead a contended life, but intrusion by others made them react in
such a way.
Earlier, addressing the gathering on the topic ‘Role and
Responsibilities of Elites’, Gurumurthy said that India must be looked
from the Indian perspective. Despite liberalisation policies implemented
since 1991 to attract foreign investments towards India, facts showed
that Indians have made a majority of the investments.
According to statistics, 98.8 per cent of investments in the country
were made by our people, whereas only 1.2 per cent of investments came
from abroad, he noted.
Gurumurthy recalled that India was a leading economic power of the world
for about 1,700 years, and the Gross Domestic Product GDP) contribution
began to decline only after colonial exploitation.
