Amit Shah to start Hyderabad Liberation Day fest on Saturday

New Delhi: Home Minister Amit Shah will begin Hyderabad Liberation Day celebrations tomorrow, September 17,  and distribute equipment to Divyangs in a 'Sewa karyakram' organised in Hyderabad as part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's birthday.

The Home Minister will leave from the capital this evening and arrive at Hyderabad Airport by 9:30 pm for his day-long visit to Hyderabad. The Minister will join the Parade Ground festivities of Hyderabad Liberation Day on Saturday at 8 a.m.

In 1948, the first Home Minister of India Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel unveiled the Tricolour after Hyderabad amalgamated with the Indian Union.

Now, 75 years later, as we let go of the remnants of our colonial history and baggage, Home Minister Amit Shah will hoist the national flag and launch the Hyderabad Liberation celebrations today.

The Union of India seized the former princely state of Hyderabad, which was ruled by the Nizam, as a result of a military operation known as "Operation Polo," which culminated on September 17, 1948.

The Home Minister will participate in the distribution of toilet cleaning equipment to government schools and community hostels at around 1.30 pm at the Classic function hall in Hyderabad as part of another celebration of Prime Minister Modi's birthday called "Sewa karyakram." 

Divyangs will also communicate with the Home Minister.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has announced to organise various programmes under "Seva Pakhwada" across the nation from September 17 to October 2 to commemorate Prime Minister Modi's 72nd birthday this coming week. On September 17, 1950, in Vadnagar, a modest and unremarkable town in North Gujarat's Mehsana district, PM Modi was born.

The Home Minister will participate in the ceremony to lay wreaths at the Shaheed Smarak at the National Police Academy in Hyderabad at 3 p.m. later in the day.

Hyderabad Liberation Day is often observed on September 17 to commemorate the uprising and ensuing police response that resulted in Hyderabad state's emancipation from the Nizam's rule on that date in 1948.
When Hyderabad was still ruled by the Nizam, the police began a campaign to free it under the banner of "Operation Polo," which was completed on September 17, 1948.

As a part of Azaadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, Hyderabad Liberation Day will be celebrated for an entire year from September 17, 2022 to September 17, 2023.
