Union Minister G Kishan Reddy on Thursday hoisted the national flag in Delhi, observing September 17 as Telangana Liberation Day. Speaking to the media, Kishan Reddy said that the real independence for Telangana is on September 17 as the state was liberated from the tyranny of Nizam after the ‘Police Action’ was ordered by the then Home Minister Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. He recalled that the Razakars, the private army of Nizam, have pounded the villages and raped and killed thousands of women. On the occasion, Kishan has conveyed birthday wishes to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
