Telangana turns 10: Telangana’s Progress and Achievements Highlighted in 21-Day Event
Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao, popularly known as KCR, commenced the festivities to commemorate the 10th year of the state’s formation. The ruling Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) has meticulously planned a series of events over 21 days to showcase the government’s initiatives over the past nine years. A staggering sum of Rs 105 crore has been allocated to each of the state’s 33 districts.
To begin the celebrations, KCR paid homage to the martyrs of the Telangana struggle at a memorial in Hyderabad’s Gun Park. In his address, he highlighted the remarkable progress the young state has achieved in various sectors, positioning Telangana as a “benchmark” for the entire nation. He proudly declared, “I promised the people of Telangana that I would rebuild and develop the state in a manner that would make our nation proud. In just nine years, we have fulfilled that promise. Telangana has become an inspiring model of development for the entire country.”
Furthermore, KCR emphasised that the Telangana model of development and growth has gained immense recognition and is highly sought-after, even internationally. He asserted that numerous states within India are eager to implement this successful model within their own territories.
Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan, with whom the Telangana government has had a longstanding feud, was notably absent from the event, as she was not extended an invitation.
According to the government’s schedule, the opening ceremonies for the formation day were planned to be held at various district collectorates last Friday. Saturday was dedicated to Telangana farmers’ day, with elected representatives and officials engaging with farmers. The BRS workers have already launched a campaign to highlight the party’s agricultural schemes, with posters displayed across the state.

The meeting featured participation from leaders of the Rythu Bandhu samitis, village sarpanches, and other local figures. The state agriculture department also organised programs to discuss insurance schemes with farmers, followed by a communal meal. The BRS is keen on expanding its influence beyond the state by leveraging the agricultural sector as a key platform.
During a recent public meeting in Nanded, Maharashtra, KCR proclaimed, “The condition of farmers has remained unchanged under the rule of Congress and BJP. It is time for a change. I aim to implement the Telangana model of support for farmers and various other sections of society across the entire nation.”
The government has dedicated specific days throughout the 21-day event to celebrate and raise awareness about different aspects of Telangana’s progress. June 4th will be observed as safety day, focusing on initiatives by the Telangana police. The following day, Telangana electricity victory day, will entail constituency-level meetings involving farmers, consumers, electricity employees, and public representatives, highlighting the significant improvements in the power sector.
A cultural program featuring documentary screenings, book launches, and speeches on the state’s achievements will be held in the evening. The government has also planned a Telangana industrial growth festival, an irrigation day, a Telangana welfare day, a Telangana good governance day, a Telangana literature day, a Telangana women’s welfare day, and a Telangana palle pragathi day (village development day).
On June 21st, the state will observe a spiritual day, adorning temples, mosques, churches, and other places of worship with decorations. The final day will commemorate the martyrs of the statehood movement, with meetings in every village and a rally of 6,000 people flagged off by KCR.
Meanwhile, the Telangana Congress has also organised its own 21-day program, extending invitations to Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, Deputy Chief Minister D K Shivakumar, and former Lok Sabha speaker Meira Kumari. Congress leaders garlanded and showered milk on portraits of Congress leader Sonia Gandhi across multiple venues in the state. They organised rallies and initiated public outreach programs to demonstrate their solidarity with the party.
Congress senior leader Mohammed Ali Shabbir acknowledged that Sonia Gandhi, as the Congress president during the UPA Government’s tenure, was instrumental in granting statehood to Telangana.
Overall, the 10th anniversary celebrations of Telangana’s formation serve as a platform to showcase the state’s achievements and progress under the leadership of Chief Minister KCR. The meticulously planned 21-day event aims to highlight the government’s schemes across various sectors, solidify the Telangana model’s reputation, and inspire other states to emulate its success.
