Telangana formation day
Telangana Formation Day is celebrated every year on 2nd June as Telangana emerged as the 29th state of India on 2nd June 2014.
This day remembers the sacrifice and cooperation of all those people who laid down their lives in making this separate state.
History of State
Telangana was divided from the erstwhile Madras on 1 November 1956 and the Telugu speaking people merged with Andhra Pradesh.
In 1969, there was a protest and agitation for a new state in the Telangana region.
After protests, a separate new state was formed in 1972 in the form of Andhra Pradesh.
After nearly 40 years of opposition, the Telangana Bill was passed in the Lok Sabha by the Congress Working Committee and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in February 2014.
The bill was introduced in the Indian Parliament in 2014 and the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act got its nod in the same year.
According to the bill, Telangana was formed by ten districts of north-western Andhra Pradesh.
