Central Govt to commemorate Telangana Liberation Day on Sept 17: Kishan Reddy

Hyderabad: Union Minister of Tourism & Culture and Telangana BJP President G Kishan Reddy announced on Tuesday that, like the previous year, the Central Government will commemorate Telangana Liberation Day in a grand manner in the state on September 17.

The location and chief guest for the event will be announced at a later date.

Addressing the media during the Mary Mati Meradesh program at Kavadiguda, Reddy emphasized the significance of honoring national heroes on the occasion of the country’s 75th year of independence.

“Last year, on September 17, we celebrated Telangana Liberation Day. From August 13 to 15, we observed the Harghar Tiranga program. In a similar spirit, we now present the Mary Mati Meradesh program,” Reddy said.

The program, titled ‘The Land Where I Was Born, the Land That Gave Birth to Me,’ commenced on September 1 and is designed to commemorate the contributions of freedom fighters and those who stood against the Rajakars. Reddy urged the youth, women, and elders of every village to remember the sacrifices made by soldiers and security personnel for the country.

“As a symbol of unity, we plan to collect a fistful of soil and a fistful of rice from each household in an urn. This initiative should be carried out in all villages. In September, we will collect sacred soil from every village, followed by special programs at Mandal Centers, District Centers, and the state capital,” he explained.

Reddy also announced the planting of 75,000 saplings in approximately 7,500 pots of collected soil next to the war memorial in Kartavyapath (Amrit Park or Amrita Vanam), along with the establishment of the Amrita Stupa.

“This program serves as a reminder of our privilege to be born in Bharat Bhoomi,” stated Reddy, who added that it would conclude on October 31, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Unity Day.

In a bid to involve people from all walks of life, students, and youth, Reddy shared details of a pledge program with five key points:

Promotion and preservation of India’s culture and heritage, free from colonial ideologies. Collective commitment to the unity and sovereignty of the nation.

Involvement of all 140 crore citizens in the nation’s development by 2047, irrespective of political, ideological, caste, or religious affiliations.

A pledge by the Central Government to unite with the people of the country for the cause of “Mary Mati Mera Desh.”

Emphasizing the program’s national importance and the participation of people from all corners of the country, highlighting its role as part of the Azadika Amrit Mahotsav.

“I extend a warm invitation to all to participate enthusiastically,” Reddy added.
