Hyderabad: Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao compared the struggle for Telangana with the Indian freedom movement during the concluding ceremony of the ‘Swatantra Bharat Vajrotsavalu.’ He criticized those who opposed the formation of Telangana and now try to teach lessons about the Telangana movement.
KCR highlighted that the Telangana agitation was non-violent, similar to the freedom struggle against British rule. He pointed out that there were pessimists who did not believe in the need for Telangana and supported unified rule. However, their efforts failed, and now they talk about the Telangana agitation.
The Chief Minister praised the achievements of the Telangana government, stating that it has become a role model for the country. In just nine years, the government successfully solved the agrarian crisis and implemented schemes like Rythu Bandhu to benefit farmers. The focus on rural development led to prosperity in villages.
KCR also acknowledged the significance of India’s struggle for independence, considering it as one of the greatest in world history. He emphasized the responsibility of individuals to remember the sacrifices made by freedom fighters like Swamy Vivekananda, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, and Rajguru. The government showed the film Gandhi to school children to educate them about Mahatma Gandhi’s role in the freedom struggle.
The Chief Minister stated that the government is inspired by Gandhian ideals and is committed to overall development, including agriculture, industries, IT sector, tribal development, and welfare of marginalized communities. The government aims to continue this pattern of development and share its progress with everyone in the future.
