Entire Telangana has been busy celebrating it since then. The government of Telangana has felicitated many people who fought for it, but Telangana Ram Reddy’s name is cleanly forgotten by the so-called leaders and the authorities who are about to celebrate June 2 once again.
State Junior Lecturers former president M V Gona Reddy speaking on the sacrifices of Ram Reddy to The Hans India said, “Though four years lapsed since the formation of Telangana, the State government except giving some financial assistance Telangana Ram Reddy was not honoured on the formation of Telangana State. As such, his sacrifice has not been recognised by the Telangana State government properly.
