topics for discussion: bifurcation, Andhra Pradesh, Congress, BJP, 2014 Elections, haircut
Mr. Arun Jaitley is one of the top leaders in BJP. He is also leader of BJP Parliamentary Party in Rajya Sabha. He has recently written in his blog that Congress could not efficiently handle the issue of bifurcation of the State of Andhra Pradesh.

BJP ruled India from 1999 to 2004. Who stopped it from forming the State of Telangana amicably? Its lust for power stopped BJP from undertaking an amicable bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh, because it was afraid of Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu who was Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh at that time.
Ever since Congress came into power in 2004, BJP leaders, especially the BJP leaders of Andhra Pradesh went on instigating the violent TelangaNa movement. BJP leaders of A.P. joined the Telangana Joint Action Committee and they were too eager to fall at the feet of TRS bosses. Did they ever discourage TRS leaders from their abuses of Seemandhra People and stop extortions?
Did BJP top leadership, from 2004 to 2014, ever arrange for a joint sitting of leaders of Telangana and Seemandhra, for arriving at an amicable settlement? No.
BJP just went on prodding and pushing the Congress for the introduction of Telangana Bill in Lok Sabha.
Does BJP central leaders have any concrete action plan for an amicable separation of Andhra Pradesh? If they have any such plans, why don't they reveal?
They simply say that they will introduce some amendments to the Telangana bill in Lok Sabha. But they will not say, what they are going to do if Congress rejects them.
Their plan seems to be only one thing. Find fault with Congress, somehow or other. Get four or five seats by bargaining with TRS.
If BJP is serious and sincere
BJP top leadership should clearly announce what they are going to do if Congress rejects amendments if any moved by BJP in Lok Sabha. Will BJP vote in favor of passing the bill? Or will they allow the bill to lapse unaccepted? In that case they can go to the 2014 elections, publishing an action plan for bifurcation of A.P. if BJP comes into power.
A fair political party does not play hide and seek with people's sentiments. People are not stones. They have hearts and heads.
My gratitude to Mr. Arun Jaitley
It has been my decade old desire to draw a cartoon and publish it. I could not do it, because I did not have ideas, drawing skills and talent. I used to be jealous of my elder son, who is an accomplished painter of portraits and landscapes (not cartoons).
Utterances of Mr. Arun Jaitley, Ms. Sushma Swaraj, Mr. Digvijay Singh (Congress in-charge for A.P.) and Mr. Sushilkumar Shinde (Home Minister) have motivated me to make renewed efforts to draw my first cartoon. Thus, my first cartoon "Who will do greater barbarous haircut to Seemandhra" , I could visualise, draw and publish, spending nearly six hours.
