The Congress party congratulated the people of Telangana on their state’s formation day. Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge and former party chief Rahul Gandhi both shared messages on Twitter, expressing their pride in the party’s role in making Telangana a reality. Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra also tweeted a video of her recent visit to Telangana, honoring the martyrs who fought for statehood and committing to a future that prioritizes youth and fulfills the dreams of the state’s founders.
Telangana became India’s youngest state on June 2, 2014, after 40 years of protests by Telugus demanding a separate state for Telugu-speaking people. The Congress party played a role in making this happen, and they are committed to building a model state that brings prosperity to farmers, youth, and women.
