The truth was Chenna Reddy was small time leader in congress before so he created telangana agitation and fanned passions of telangana people by concoting some stories of how they were exploited by Andhra people, so he can realize his dream of CM.The then PM Indira Gandhi called him to Delhi and offered him the post of CM of AP. We know she was dictator,she offered him that position on the basis that no more agitation would ensue and everyone should forget Telangana.The result was he became CM and all the promises he made to students and youth were ignored. The very students and youth who supported Chenna Reddy went to his house as a mob and broke his home,as they lost a year of study in that agitation and almost the whole of Osmania University Campus was put behind bars for that vandalizing act on Chenna Reddy's home..After that there was no Telangana Call or Agitation untill 2001. Now enter, KCR who was in TDP before, was sidelined by Chandrababu naidu,after which he quit TDP, he then conjured the ghost of Telangana and formed TRS party, he made many promises he literally showed them heaven so illiterates and rural folk were impressed.He highlighted them as agitation, and got into limelight. They say in political arena,YSR when he was in power snubbed KCR and he was offered vast sums of money from Center was threatened to open up some old pending cases against KCR and some leaders of TRS. KCR went quiet for sometime but would raise the specter of Telangana every now and then when he needed attention, and attention he got. After the death of YSR there was no leader in state to contain KCR so he has a free reign. When KCR was decided to fast unto death he broke his fast with lemon juice which greatly angered the Telangana students as they realised they got played, and demanded either he forget it or die for telangana. Uncertain of his political future he went into another fast till death this time he was put in ICU, which made Congress leaders jittery in New Delhi.Then Chidambaram fumbled in speech with Telangana process has been started, later tried going back by suggesting what he said was not in that context. That is how Telangana agitation go steam otherwise it would have died a natural death if not for chiddus fumble.
