Hyderabad: Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao compared the Telangana agitation to the Indian freedom struggle during the concluding ceremony of the ‘Swatantra Bharat Vajrotsavalu.’
KCR stated that those who opposed the formation of Telangana and supported unified rule during the agitation were now trying to teach lessons about the movement. He emphasized that the Telangana agitation was carried out peacefully, just like the freedom struggle against British rule.
There were some pessimists who believed there was no need for Telangana and advocated for unified rule. They tried to mislead the people, but their efforts were unsuccessful. Despite their opposition, Telangana became a separate state, and the government’s governance has been commendable.
Telangana has become a role model for the country in just nine years. The state has successfully addressed the agrarian crisis and implemented schemes like Rythu Bandhu to support farmers. The Chief Minister praised the struggle for India’s independence and urged everyone to remember the sacrifices made by great leaders.
India has become a role model for the world due to its long and heroic freedom struggle against British colonial rule. The Chief Minister mentioned the contributions of Swamy Vivekananda, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, and Rajguru. The government also screened the film Gandhi for school children to educate them about Mahatma Gandhi’s role in the freedom struggle.
Inspired by Gandhian ideals, the government is focused on developing villages, towns, cities, agriculture, industries, and the IT sector. It also prioritizes tribal development, Dalits, minorities, and everyone else. The government aims to continue this pattern of development and ensure that everyone benefits from progress in the future.
