A Separate Telangana

Promises and Prospects for Tribal People

This article looks at the agendas and interests of the tribal people of Telangana region, who perceive that they have been continuously neglected and deprived of their legitimate rights and entitlements right from the time of the Nizam's rule. The present "democratically elected governments", dominated by the upper castes and landlords, have continued to exploit them. Can the plundering of the tribal people be stopped? Will the formation of a separate Telangana state generate a set of strategies that will ensure social justice for them? Will it bring about a better interface between tribals and non-tribals?

I am grateful for valuable comments and inspiration from Arun Kumar Patnaik.
