Religious Guru Says Bifurcation of AP will Be “Disastrous”.


THE Kanchi Kamakoti Mutt is organising the 75th Avatar Mahotsav of His Holiness Shankaracharya Swami Jayendra Saraswati in every state of India He was speaking In Guntur.

Guntur (AP), Feb 15 (PTI) Opposition to bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh came out from a spiritual head today with Kanchi Sankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati saying the division would be “disastrous” as it would give Maoists a free run.

“If Andhra Pradesh is split it would be disastrous. Maoists will become stronger,” the pontiff told reporters here. “There is no need to bifurcate the state where all people speak Telugu.”

His remarks come in the wake of ongoing agitation for separate Telangana state. The Sankaracharya pleaded for unity of the country and deplored linguistic chauvinism. The religious leader is here on a three-day visit.

There are no reactions from the JAC or any Political Leaders of Telangana and who are demanding separate State of Telangana. The regious leader speaking openly in favour of united Andhra is significant.

We have to wait and see how the People in the Telangana will react to this statement of Achariaya.

    Interestingly, the so-called “spiritual head” thinks from Political point of view.
    Usually they comply some other issues rather than thinking of Maoists, but lets see what higher officials thinks about it.
    Guess, he will change his view in next two days left in his visit 😛
