The BRS leader said, the people of Telangana fought tirelessly for six decades to achieve statehood, which finally proved to be a significant achievement on June 2, 2014. The journey of statehood is marked by countless sacrifices, especially the sacrifices of the youth of Telangana. To suggest that Telangana did not celebrate its statehood is not only factually incorrect but also seems ignorant and arrogant. In his attempts to criticize the Congress Party, Prime Minister Modi is repeatedly hurting the sentiments of the people of Telangana. KTR said it is important for political leaders holding important positions to approach such sensitive historical matters with empathy and understanding, considering the emotions and sacrifices associated with them.
