For any human settlement to come up, water and cultivable land is the basic need. Then come transport, education, health care and infrastructure. This is the case with Hyderabad in particular and Andhra Pradesh in general which is richly endowed with resources with a little variation region wise. Firstly, it is unfortunate that how leaders/people could be so indifferent to a particular region's grievances, insensitive to the factors that may have lead to demands nothing short of bifurcation of a flourishing state.
Now, a united Andhra appears to be impossible. As much it would be less fair to leave Hyderabad as a capital exclusively to any one of the divided states. To make Hyderabad available to people of all regions as a facility for employment, education and health care even for settlement sounds reasonable.
Hopefully, the least hurdle one may find to create a separate state for Telangana will be in retaining Hyderabad as a joint capital. On its gaining statehood, Telangana will have its own Assembly, enact its own laws to govern its territories, plan their revenue, decide on budget allocations on various projects, be it infrastructure, irrigation, industry, education, health care etc. Sharing river waters, provisions for Assembly building, secretariat and other departmental buildings can be sorted out with due cooperation and coordination between the people and governments.
We need more statesmen than mere politicians. To lessen the impact of Bifurcation, Centre's aid too is vital for the development of all regions.
