BJP alleges Telangana govt is intentionally not celebrating Nizam state merger with India

Speaking at a round-table meeting organised by the BJP in Hyderabad, he asked why Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, who favoured the official celebration of the day of merger (17 September) during undivided Andhra Pradesh, has changed his stance now.

Laxman, who has recently undertaken a 'yatra' with the demand that the state government officially celebrate the day, said Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh would attend a public meeting to be organised by the party on 17 September at Nizamabad.

BJP has alleged that the TRS government was not officially celebrating the day due to "vote bank politics" and also under pressure from the MIM. The party on Friday released a poster for the Nizamabad meeting.
