V-P, PM greet people on Telangana statehood day

Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday extended greetings on Telangana's statehood day, saying the state is making valuable contribution to the country's growth trajectory. The prime minister also extended best wishes to the people of Andhra Pradesh, saying their hardwork and courage are synonymous with the culture of the land.
