HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY.
What a Happy Day! …especially as today is the First Independence Day of our Country’s newest State – TELANGANA! For which I have been aspiring since 1969 and many since 1956. God bless Telangana and our Country on this happy occasion.
Independence Day is a day of remembrance as well as dedication. Just as our Country achieved freedom through a very long struggle and sacrifice by generations of selfless patriots; young and old, men and women cutting across the barriers of caste, religion and region from all over the country, TELANGANA STATE too has become a reality after a similar struggle full of sacrifices. Today I wish to thank and pay my respects to all the great men, dead and alive who have made our Country - The Republic of India and Telangana State possible.
