Hyderabad: Ahead of the 75th Hyderabad Liberation Day, 'National Unity' rallies were held in 119 Assembly constituencies of the state on Friday. State ministers, MPs, MLAs, MLCs, zilla parishad chairpersons, municipal chairpersons, chairpersons of various Corporations, other public representatives, students, and people from the respective constituencies participated in the rallies.

The participants were seen waving national flags at the rallies across the state. After holding a large-scale public meeting in the respective constituencies, the public representatives explained the circumstances that led to the merger of the Hyderabad state with the Union of India, the emergence of a separate Telangana state, and the implementation of large-scale welfare and development programmes in the state of Telangana.

State ministers Talasani and Mahmood Ali, chief secretary Somesh Kumar, Khairatabad MLA Danam Nagender, Hyderabad Mayor Gadwal Vijaya Lakshmi, GHMC commissioner Lokesh Kumar, and Hyderabad collector participated in the unity rally organised from the NTR Marg IMAX to People's Plaza. They were joined by many corporators, officers, students, and local people.

'TS got its true independence on 17 Sept'

After the rally, minister Talasani Srinivasa Yadav attended a public meeting at People's Plaza where he said Telangana got its true independence on 17 September and that is why the state is observing it as National Unity Day. He said that the largest cultural festival, Ganesh Nimjanam, was organised peacefully with the cooperation of the people and warned them to be vigilant against forces that could disturb the peace and security of Hyderabad. He said that by naming the Telangana Secretariat after Dr. BR Ambedkar, CM KCR's name will remain forever in history.

MLA Dana Nagender also said that by naming the new secretariat after Ambedkar, KCR's name will be written in golden letters.

State Home minister Mahmood Ali said, "17 September is a very important day. Before that, there was Nizam's government. As in other regions, we did not get freedom so easily. It was a big movement. We got freedom after losing many lives." He also added that KCR for Telangana is like how Mahatma Gandhi was for India.

Chief secretary Somesh Kumar said that around 15,000 people are participating in these rallies in one Assembly constituency. He said everybody should be aware of the importance of 17 September. He added that Telangana is making fantastic progress in development and welfare programmes.

A large number of students, youths, representatives of various communities, employees, and GHMC employees participated in the rally. Later, the ministers and public representatives joined the participants for lunch.
