“N. Chandrababu Naidu and K. Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR) must Focus on Developmental Issues in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana State” ―Professor M.S.Rao

"There are seven things that will destroy us: Wealth without work; Pleasure without conscience; Knowledge without character; Religion without sacrifice; Politics without principle; Science without humanity; Business without ethics."
―Mahatma Gandhi

Currently the battle is going between the chief ministers of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana State on cash-for-vote scam. It seems there is no end for this issue. Is it essential to pay this much of attention on this issue rather than on developmental issues?

Ever since Telangana movement started by K. Chandrasekhar Rao, (KCR), there is a widening rift between him and N Chandrababu Naidu.  It appears more like a personal battle between KCR and Naidu than between the Telugus (Telugus are always one emotionally and linguistically). Unfortunately, they are instigating Telugus of both States to settle their personal scores. The creation of Telangana State is due the personal rift between KCR and Naidu. Now Telangana State is a reality. Therefore, KCR must focus on development of Telangana State. Similarly, Naidu must focus on the development of Andhra Pradesh. Almost one year has passed; nothing concrete has come out in Andhra Pradesh.

It is rightly said that in the war of politics it is the innocent people who get killed. Leaders always safeguard their positions and their families. They also fill their private coffers. These leaders hardly care for their people. They make lots of political promises to come to power to fool people. If required, they instigate people to fight against each other cultural and community basis.  Both KCR and Naidu must behave like mature leaders in public places. KCR must check his acerbic tongue and Naidu should stop his double games.  Both must know that people are watching them closely. People gave them mandate to govern and develop their respective states, and not to indulge in mudslinging.

The Telugu community is suffering because of petty politics by these politicians for their political ends. It is more of a personal battle than a professional battle without any ideologies. And the governor is sandwiched between the devil and the deep sea.

Leaders must avoid petty politics and mudslinging in public places. They must keep people’s interest above politics. In democracy, people are Gods and they can throw away such politicians in next elections.  Politicians are permitted to make political attacks. If they make personal attacks against other communities and cultures, it brings down their images and people will team them lesson.  

“Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other.” ―Oscar Ameringer
