Adepu Lakshmipathi, noted fiction writer who presided the programme, emphasized on the need for preserving history of Hyderabad in view of rapid changes in the city's milieu. The book analysed social, political and sociological aspects of the place, he said.
Editor of National Book Trust of India Pathipaka Mohan emphasized on the need for rewriting history of Telangana as the erstwhile rulers have tried to distort the history of the state. He hoped that history of other constituencies would also be written in near future.
Pavan Kumar, editor of the book, speaking on the occasion, said the first municipal elections held for Hyderabad city in 1951 were not recorded, he said.

There is a need for rewriting the city history with facts, he added.
