The Background Telangana, a treasure of culture and history, a mine of resources and energies, a bed of two gigantic river basins-Godavari and Krishna, has been merged with Andhra against the wishes of majority Telangana people and States Re-organization commission report, by simple manipulation and deceitful agreements.
All agreements and assurances thrown to wind from the day one itself. The slogan for separate statehood has been living in the hearts of Telangana population all through the sixty years history. Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru initially was skeptical of merging Telangana with Andhra State, fearing a “tint of expansionist imperialism” in it.
He compared the merger to a matrimonial alliance having “provisions for divorce” if the partners in the alliance cannot get on well. For selfish & political reasons and by the natural strength of majority, people at helm of affairs have distorted facts backed by media houses from Seemandhra.
This led to the suppression of the Statehood aspirations of people of Telangana for the last six decades. But a just, truthful, democratic demand cannot be buried under lies and manipulations forever. Namasthe Telangana emerges from that urge for freedom. NAMASTHE TELANGANA DAILY became the reality on the auspicious day of 6TH JUNE 2011 under the banner of TELANGANA PUBLICATIONS PVT. LTD. The Dream of Telangana People came true on 2nd June 2014 and Telangana proudly stood as 29th State of India.
