Swamy supports Telangana & Smaller States

Dr. Swamy Rubbishes claims that Telangana would not be economically viable
New Delhi : Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy on Monday said that any Telangana package should be rejected outright, as nothing short of separate Telangana would do. There should be no compromise on this basic demand, he said.
A publication ‘A Rebuttal to Visalandhra Goebbels Propaganda’ brought out by Telangana Development Forum, US, to reject the claims of Vishalandhra Mahasabha against the demand for separate Telangana State.  The publication was released by Dr Subramanian Swamy. The author Konatham Dilip ,Delhi TJAC Convener D Ramakrishna Reddy & Sriram Vedire were present on the occasion.
Dr Subramanian Swamy praised the effort of the Telangana Development Forum to counter the claims of Vishalandhra Mahasabha. “In a democracy, it is important to challenge false propaganda. Even during the Emergency, the false propaganda was challenged through underground literature,” he said.
The NDA, he said, is all for Telangana and if the NDA comes to power, he will do everything in his power to ensure the creation of Telangana. Dr Swamy said, “You are closest to achieving Telangana. In 2014, we should have the celebrations meeting in Hyderabad, after the creation of Telangana.”
Telangana activists should never despair. One does not know when Telangana may happen,” he said. Citing from history, he said when the Quit India Movement collapsed in 1944, people gave up hope of achieving Independence. But it happened in 1947. Again, during the Emergency, when he managed to escape, there was not even a whimper of protest. “People used to ask me, how will things go on like this? I had no answer. Indira Gandhi made a foolish decision and called elections and she lost all over the country and she was defeated in her own constituency. When it all seems impossible, things suddenly happen,” Dr Swamy said.
Two States would be a credit to Telugus
Citing solid reasons for creation of Telangana, he said: “Andhra Pradesh is too large a State; there is no dispute over language and it would be a credit if there are two Telugu-speaking States. There has been a consistent demand for separate State.” He rubbished the claim that Telangana is not viable economically. If it is true then trade between States is always an option open to it
