The Government of India approved annual commemoration of “Hyderabad Liberation Day” for the years 2022 to 2023.
On September 17, 2022, the Ministry of Culture will organise the inaugural event for the year-long celebration of Hyderabad Liberation Day.
Meanwhile, the state government on Saturday decided to observe September 17 as Telangana National Unity Day.
Grand ceremonies would be held in all 33 districts.
The goal is to raise awareness of the tale of sacrifice, heroism, and resistance among the current generation in India as a whole as well as in the region under study.
When India gained Independence in 1947, even though 562 princely states announced the merger with the Indian Union, there was some resistance from the erstwhile state of Hyderabad.
The erstwhile state of Hyderabad, comprising the entire state of Telangana and some districts in Maharashtra and Karnataka, got independence from the Nizam’s rule. This was possible due to the swift and timely action of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel under Operation Polo.”
