Telangana Formation Day History
But if we look down a bit lengthy history then till 1946 The Nizam of Hyderabad was the head of the region during the British Raj but soon after independence the last name of Hyderabad refused to join Indian union even after Jawaharlal Nehru’s request so the Indian army with Sardar Patel protested against it and the Nizam had to surrender to him and to the Indian union. After that the States Reorganisation Commission merges the states Andhra Pradesh and Telangana together with the official language as Telugu. In 2013 Manmohan Singh of Congress asked them to separate the states Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.
Coming to his history, this day back in 2014 Telangana got separated from other Andhra Pradesh and created its own state as the bill passed by both the houses of the parliament on 2nd June (the bill was called Telangana bill). This day mainly represents the separation fact and the success of the movement part. K Chandrasekhar Rao was the first elected CM of the state from the Telangana Rashtra Samithi party followed by E.S.L.
Narsimhan as the governor. The state was very thankful to the Congress party as they were the one to suggest a different state out of Andhra Pradesh . On July 1st 2013 the bill was created which took more than an year to get passed by both houses of the Constitution but as the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act passed in February 2014, Telangana bill also got recognition after that in June.
