Telangana Formation Day: June 02

Telangana, which had been a part of the state of Andhra Pradesh, came into being after a movement to create a new state. There had been protests and agitations for a good number of years, and it was one of the most long-lasting movements in South India. After the struggle, a bill was passed in Parliament that led to the formation of the new state on June 2, 2014.

After it came into being, Kalvakuntla Chandrashekar Rao was elected as its first Chief Minister after his party, the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), secured a majority in the elections.Every year the state celebrates its formation day with formal events that last for four days across all its 30 districts. The formal event starts with the Chief Minister of Telangana, KC Rao, hoisting the national flag at the parade grounds where the ceremonial parade is also held.
