Kishan Reddy invites KCR to Union Govts event on Hyderabad Liberation Day

HYDERABAD: Union Minister of Tourism G Kishan Reddy has urged Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai and Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde to participate in the Hyderabad Liberation Day celebrations on September 17 in the city.

With parts of Maharashtra, Karnataka and Telangana comprising the erstwhile princely Nizam rule, the Union Government sought to invite all the three Chief Ministers.

The Union Minister wrote letters to the three Chief Ministers inviting them for the event.

"As you are aware, when India became independent in 1947, although 562 princely states announced the merger into the Indian Union, there was resistance from the erstwhile state of Hyderabad. On 17th September 1948, more than one year after India secured Independence from the British, the erstwhile state of Hyderabad, comprising the entire state of Telangana and some districts in Maharashtra and Karnataka, got independence from the brutality and tyranny of the Nizam's rule. This was possible due to the swift and timely action of Shri Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel under Operation Polo. As a son of the soil and a person with an accentuated awareness of this history and a nuanced understanding of the struggle, you do well appreciate the significance of the Liberation Movement," Kishan Reddy said.

While writing to KCR, Kishan Reddy said that special events would be organised at Parade Grounds in Hyderabad, in which Union Home Minister Amit Shah would be the chief guest.

He explained that the Government of India wanted to celebrate the event marking the Azadi Ka Amrut Mahotsav.
