Telangana turns two: KCR to launch English daily

Telangana is all set to get a new English-language newspaper. And the one launching it is none other than the state chief minister, K Chandrasekhar Rao. The paper, named Telangana Today, is ready to hit the stands in July, reported Hindustan Times. The paper will be published by Rao's publication house, Telangana Publications Private Limited.

The report added that the local media is fearful that the paper will act as a party mouthpiece, but Telangana Today Editor K Srinivas Reddy told Hindustan Times that the publication will not do so; it will simply take the side of the people.

The development comes at a time when India's youngest state is all set to celebrate its second anniversary on 2 June. According to a report in the Deccan Chronicle, the state government has planned a grand fireworks display on the banks of the Hussainsagar Lake. Relatives of the 1969 Telangana movement's martyrs will be honoured, while special lifetime achievement awards will be given to 50 eminent personalities of the state.

All government establishments will have to be beautifully decorated, while public places like malls, cinema halls, hotels and hospitals have also been directed to join the celebrations, The Hindu reported. KCR has also directed officials to distribute food at homes for the destitute and at schools for the blind.

According to The New Indian Express, CM Rao invited Governor ESL Narsimhan for the formation day event on 2 June.
