Alleging that the TRS government in Telangana is intentionally not celebrating the merger of erstwhile Nizam State with the Indian Union, state BJP president K Laxman today said an agitation similar to the separate statehood stir needs to be organised for the purpose.
Speaking at a round-table meeting organised by the BJP here, he asked why Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, who favoured the official celebration of the day of merger (September 17) during undivided Andhra Pradesh, has changed his stance now.
Laxman, who has recently undertaken a 'yatra' with the demand that the state government officially celebrate the day, said Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh would attend a public meeting to be organised by the party on September 17 at Nizamabad.
The party today released a poster for the Nizamabad meeting.
