ADILABAD: Cotton and issues related with this commercial crop will be made a rallying point for separatist movements in Telangana region in Andhra Pradesh and Vidarbha in Maharashtra. Some of the protagonists have found cotton issues to be common to the two regions which can render it a factor of their unity.
P. Niroop Reddy, Supreme Court advocate and convener of the Telangana Vikas Manch in association with the Vidarbha Jan Andolan and the National Federation for New States told reporters on Wednesday that cotton farmers in both the backward regions would be brought on a single platform to unitedly raise the voice for formation of two new States.
He said a rally of farmers would be organised in Adilabad shortly which would be attended by national-level farmer leaders.
Drawing parallels between demand for separate States in Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra, the Telangana protagonist said political leaders of main parties had failed to fulfil the aspirations of people at both the places.
This made people support the separatist movement being run by organisations like Vidarbha Jan Andolan and Telangana Vikas Manch, he added.
Mr. Reddy said Telangana protagonists would also bring out a report by a people's tribunal within one week of the deadline set for Srikrishna Committee if the latter fails to give a report on schedule.
Eminent personalities would give the report after examining the question of what were the hurdles for its formation and whether Telangana State would be economically viable besides pondering on the question of Federal structure being weakened or strengthened by the new entity.
