The ongoing Telangana agitation is a reverse phenomenon of the mass movement against the Partition of Bengal in 1905. Hazare’s proposed fast demanding certain constitutional provisions, similarly, runs reverse to Gandhi’s fast preceding to the Poona Pact of 1932 to prevent some constitutional proposals. Partition or unification of states is, understandably, an emotional issue that easily ferments agitations. But, bringing constitutional matters to the street level is certainly a disservice to our democracy and nationhood.
Savitri Era Party denounces such strong arm tactics of the Hazare team and appeals to the youth of the country not to be associated with their crowd mobilization. [TNM55]
