Prime Minister Narendra Modi delivered a powerful speech on the partition of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana during the inaugural session of the special Parliament meeting commemorating 75 years. He highlighted the significance of the Andhra Pradesh bifurcation, which transpired within the walls of the Parliament building.
The Prime Minister noted a crucial distinction: the division of Andhra Pradesh into AP and Telangana differed from the creation of Uttarakhand, Jharkhand, and Chhattisgarh. He underscored that the latter three states were meticulously and systematically divided during former Prime Minister Vajpayee’s tenure, accompanied by joyous celebrations. However, he criticized the process of Andhra Pradesh’s partition, asserting that it failed to satisfy the populace of both states.
Prime Minister Modi indirectly pointed fingers at the Congress, highlighting the challenges arising from the division and emphasizing the efforts invested in the formation of Telangana. He acknowledged the injustice done to Andhra Pradesh and expressed concern that Telangana had not experienced celebratory moments following its establishment, deeming it an unfortunate circumstance.
The Prime Minister’s speech was a welcome gesture for the people of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. It showed that he is aware of the challenges faced by both states and is committed to ensuring fairness and justice for all.
