This morning expressing deep gratitude to Smt. Sonia Gandhi for granting Telengana state, TRS leader KCR announced that from next week all the people in the newly formed state will start eating spaghetti as a staple diet in the place of Rice or Roti. He said to the reporters in an emotional tone “this is the only way our people can express their gratitude for generation after generation to our mother Sonia”. KCR also said that he understands that it takes time for people to adjust to this new food. “We welcome famous chefs like Sanjeev Kapoor to come up with recipes involving Spaghetti along with Gongura, Mango pickle”.
As soon as the Telengana bill was passed in the Lower house this morning, thousands of supporters started offering prayers at the Soniamma Gudi (Sonia temple) built in the outskirts of Hyderabad by Sri Shankar Rao. Sri. Rao, talking to the reporters said that, “our dream is to make this temple a kaliyuga Tirupati. We have already started services like offering hair along with various other important services similar to Tirupati”. Our reporters learnt that the current waiting list for some of these services runs up to 12-14 months. Sri. Digvijay Singh, the key architect of Telengana state’s formation talking to the reporters said “there can’t be anything more secular than this. A Hindu temple built for a Christian woman from Italy married to a Zoroastrian man. This is what we believe in as a party.”
An emotional KTR, son of KCR also urged all the Telengana people to name their babies that are born today and for the next 3 months after Sonia, Rahul and Priyanka. “This is the least we can do for the royal family who is responsible for our liberation” said KTR talking to PTI reporters. He also rubbished all the rumors that are floating around that people of Andhra will be expelled from the state with immediate effect. “This is a false propaganda by the opposition parties lead by Chandra Babu Naidu and Jagan Mohan Reddy.
We don’t want anyone to leave immediately as this can create a governance crisis” said a visibly upset KTR. However, the government is planning to conduct a test in Telengana culture and language for all the government servants in six months. Employees failing to secure minimum marks will be asked to leave the state. To help people from Andhra to master the language, the government will dismantle the computer training institutes in Ameerpet and replace them with TTLCs (Telengana Telugu Learning Centers). Key TRS leaders such as Kodandaram, Kavitha, etc will teach these classes directly to a million people over the next 6 months.
Overall the mood in the TRS Headquarters and at KCR household is quite upbeat.
