In Telangana, people paid glorious tributes to hundreds of people who had laid down their lives for achieving statehood. Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao unveiled the Amara Jyothi, the Telangana martyrs’ memorial, on the banks of Hussainsagar in Hyderabad last evening.
He said, his government will not let the sacrifices of the martyrs go waste and will lead the state in the path of progress to fulfil their aspirations.
Addressing a gathering after unveiling the Amara Jyothi, to mark the conclusion of the decennial celebrations of Telangana state formation, he said, the memorial will serve as a constant reminder to the successive governments about the sacrifices of martyrs and make them strive hard for the development of the state.
He said, the memorial will showcase different phases of the Telangana movement through a huge gallery comprising photographs of the struggle since 1969. He recalled that people from various walks of life, including state government employees, intellectuals and students sustained the movement for more than six decades, despite facing severe hardships.
