No Telangana Liberation Day celebrations due to vote bank politics: Amit Shah

No Telangana Liberation Day celebrations due to vote bank politics: Amit Shah

Union Home Minister Amit Shah, during the official celebration of 'Hyderabad Liberation Day' on Sunday, expressed his disappointment that political parties in Telangana were reluctant to celebrate the day due to considerations of vote bank politics. The event marked the commemoration of Hyderabad's freedom from the erstwhile Nizam rule and its merger with the Indian Union on September 17, 1948.

Shah referred to the hesitation of political parties to celebrate the 'Liberation Day' as unfortunate, emphasizing that those who turn away from their country's history risk losing the support of the people. He noted that no government in the past 75 years had celebrated the historic 'Hyderabad Liberation Day,' attributing this to what he called 'appeasement policies' of previous administrations. He also credited the liberation of Hyderabad to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, the country's first Home Minister, and highlighted how his efforts led to the surrender of the Nizam's Razakars, who were armed supporters of Nizam rule.

Additionally, Union Tourism Minister and Telangana BJP President G Kishan Reddy delivered remarks during the event. The annexation of the State of Hyderabad, which was under Nizam's rule, occurred through 'Operation Polo,' a police action that concluded on September 17, 1948.
