    KCR has been saying that we need to live with scarcity till 2-3 years. It takes that much time to establish power plants! Meanwhile, we need to buy or borrow from neighbours – our AP Telugu brothers (leaders) do not seem to care much for us, and seem to rejoice in our discomfiture (what more can we expect from them?). And our Yellowbellies in Telangana as usual are HMV (his master’s voice).

    As Telanganites we can save power aggressively and make it a cultural trait.
