Telangana Vimochana Dinothsava (Telangana Liberation) celebrations in Edison, New Jersey


Edison: The contentious issue of Hyderabad Liberation Day celebrations on September 17 has again kicked up a storm. The TRS government has decided not to officially celebrate and follow the stance of previous Congress and Telugu Desam governments in undivided Andhra Pradesh. On this day in 1948, the Indian Army marched into the princely state of Hyderabad, headed by Nizam VII Mir Osman Ali Khan, and the state was merged with the Indian Union.

The Telangana people and The overseas chapter of Akhila Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP)  has been demanding official celebrations for a long time but successive Congress and Telugu Desam governments turned down the demand on the ground that this could create communal tension since the Muslim community has reservations on the issue.
