TG BJP head Bandi Sanjay has called KCR’s decision as BJP’s victory, but accused KCR of “manipulating historical facts.”
As per him, the BJP’s stress on the word Vimochana (liberation) is to highlight the FREEDOM gained by the broad area in the Deccan, which is largely Hindu, from the “tyrannical” Nizam rule.
It is to be noted that the Nizami-administration in Hyderabad state, akin with the present Telangana and including Kalyana Karnataka, and parts of Maharashtra, was liberated and integrated with the Indian Union on 17 September 1948, over a year after Indian independence from the British rule.
The Nizam who was initially hesitant to incorporate with India compelled to the merger after OPERATION POLO aka POLICE ACTION under the aegis of India’s first Home Minister Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.
