Political uncertainty will spell doom for T-state?
The Congress high command is in a hurry to divide Andhra Pradesh and into two states and strip off all of its natural advantages that it enjoys being a big state. Though new statehood is being prescribed as the panacea for all the problems of Telangana, the same new status could throw the region into troubled waters, from which it will not able to come out for a very long years.
As a good number of political parties will compete in the coming elections, a possible split electoral result could land the new state into the era of hung politics and political chaos.
A long list of parties - Congress, TRS, BJP, MIM, TDP, YSRCP, CPI, CPI (M), CPI (ML) and TRLD are expected to contest in the next election. Most probably, Congress and TRS will form a faction either by merger or alliance, CPI may find some ally; but BJP, TDP, YSRCP, MIM, CPI (M) CPI (ML) and TRLD will go out for the fight on their own.
Unless TRS is merged with Congress, the political scenario will become quite complex. As the merger makes Congress the viable power, it may enjoy the voters' sway.
In case any misfire in the merger process, the state will meet the same fate, which has been troubling Jharkhand state right from its inception. If no party emerges as the largest political group or the largest party will have to take help of other small parties, then one can clearly say that the days of doom have arrived for the new Telangana state.
Due to their corrupt nature, the parties are trying to make their best out of hung politics. The small parties are no different. They will definitely compete for spoils in the new state and will demand for their share in the cabinet, land allocations, contracts, educational institutions permits and many more.
Then, it will be difficult for people find a single party that really stands for their development. This episode could prolong for many years as the political parties are more interested in pursuing their short-term gains, rather than working for long-term gains for the people.
