BJP workers celebrated the Telangana Liberation Day on Thursday and hoisted the national flag at its State office in Nampally, Hyderabad. Party workers have also demanded that the State government celebrate the day officially. While speaking to ANI, BJP Member of Telangana Legislative Council N Ramachander Rao expressed his happiness over the occasion and said that BJP will continue to put pressure on the State government until they celebrate the day officially.

"This is the day when Hyderabad State (now Telangana) had merged into Indian Union back in 1948 with the efforts of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. Few parts of Maharashtra and Karnataka also are celebrating this day as liberation day as they were a part of the then Hyderabad State," he said while remembering the history of Telangana state under the Nizam. "For the last 20 years, BJP had been demanding to celebrate September 17th of every year as Telangana Liberation Day from the previous government as well as the current government. However, TRS party under the leadership of KCR, who during Telangana agitations had promised to celebrate the libertarian day officially, today under the pressure of AIMIM is not celebrating the day," he added.

Rao added that since it is Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 70th birthday, as part of the celebrations, 'Seva' activities are also being conducted across the State. Prominent leaders of BJP from the State, including K. Laxman, had taken part in the celebrations held here.

Earlier on September 14th, BJP had launched a week-long campaign namely 'Seva Saptah' to mark the 70th birthday of the Prime Minister. Several social initiatives are being undertaken by the party leaders and workers across the country. As part of the celebration, for the past one week, BJP workers have engaged themselves in different events including ration distribution amongst the needy, organising blood donation camps, and eye-check up camps. This campaign was launched by the party President J P Nadda at Chhaprauli village in Gautam Buddh Nagar district of Uttar Pradesh. The campaign will continue till September 20. (ANI)
