Numbers do not Support Separatists’ Wild Claims
I would like to present more statistics on the state of Nizam Telangana, Coastal Andhra, and Rayalaseema regions. The data does not include education and irrigation as I’ve already published this data on my web-site at http://www.myteluguroots.com/tables.html.
I am not going to provide detailed commentary on the data, as the tables are self-explanatory in nature.
Here is the gist:
In the categories of total workers, government hospitals, primary health centers, livestock, factory employment, power consumption, roads, school and degree education Nizam region performs better.
In the categories of number of beds in the government hospitals, number of vehicles it falls behind.
In the categories of total agriculture output, and poultry Nizam Telangana is comparable to the other regions.
Per-capita income is a good gauge to assess the economic well-being of a region. When summarized by region, Kosta per-capita income is Rs. 28,133, Nizam Telangana is Rs. 26,528, and Rayalaseema is Rs. 20,804. When Hyderabad and Rangareddi districts are excluded from Nizam Telangana, per-capita income drops to Rs. 24,168.
Based on per-capita income, clearly Nizam Telangana is behind Coastal Andhra and ahead of Rayalaseema. However, this difference is not enough to justify the kind of wild and inflammatory exaggerations being made by the separatists to further their agenda of hate. The backwardness of the Nizam Telangana region can be partly attributed to the feudal rule under Nizam. If one were to look at the absolute growth, Nizam Telangana region has grown more than the other two regions, since the state formation.
But here is a more important observation. Separatists mislead their supporters claiming that “self-rule” will change the face of the Nizam Telangana region. Ironically, Rayalaseema, from where 7 of the 15 chief ministers of our state hailed from, continues to be the most backward of the three regions.
Save Andhra Pradesh!
