Telangana CM K Chandrashekhar Rao unfurls the national flag to mark 75 years of integration with India
The erstwhile Hyderabad State under Nizam rule merged with the Indian Union on 17 September 1948
Hyderabad: Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao on Saturday unfurled the national flag on Telangana Jateeya Samaikyata Dinotsavam (Telangana National Integration Day) here, to mark 75 years of Hyderabad’s annexation to the Indian union.
Rao unfurled the tricolour a few minutes after Union Minister Amit Shah hoisted the flag at parade grounds marking the celebrations of Hyderabad Liberation Day elsewhere in the city.
In his address, he said, “My heartfelt wishes to the people of Telangana on the occasion of Telangana Jateeya Samaikyata Dinotsavam. On 17 September 1948 Telangana became an integral part of India. It transformed from dynastic rule into the democratic phase.”
“Telangana recently celebrated the 75 years of Independence Day in a grandeur manner for 15 days”, he noted.
The Chandrasekhar Rao-headed government had on 3 September announced its decision to observe 17 September as Telangana National Integration Day. 17 September is the day erstwhile Hyderabad State under Nizam rule merged with the Indian Union in 1948.
According to a new inflation-adjusted list of the world's richest people of all time, the Nizam, who ruled Hyderabad between 1886 and 1967, was ranked sixth with $236 billion.
