Mana Telangana history and culture: Seminor in Karimnagar town

Minister for Finance and Civil Supplies Etala Rajender has stressed the need to educate people about the ancient history, culture and tradition of Telangana.

Participating in a seminar on “Telangana history and culture” organised as part of the ongoing Telangana State Formation Day celebrations at ZP conference hall in Karimnagar town on Saturday, the Minister said that Telangana’s history and culture were the greatest in the world.

Recollecting the movement for statehood from 1969 onwards, he said that TRS president and Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao had given new fillip to the statehood movement from 2001 onwards.

Stating that Karimnagar district was more empowered now, he promised to make the district the ‘rice bowl of Telangana’.
