Hyderabad, Oct 30: The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (Trs) will observe 53rd Andhra Pradesh formation day as a `betrayal day’.The polit bureau meeting held here on Friday unanimously passed a resolution to observe November 1 as ‘betrayal day.The Trs has decided to organize protest demonstrations on November 1 in the Telangana region.The meeting also decided to boycott the instructions of Secondary Education Minister D Makya Vara Prasad, who directed all public and private schools to sing APs official song ‘Maa Telugu Talliki Mallepu Danda’ during Morning Prayer hours, in Telangana schools.The Trs criticized the minister for issuing the orders in a hasty manner without knowing the ground realities.

It was on Nov 1, 1956 that Telangana, part of erstwhile princely state of Hyderabad, was merged with Andhra to form a state for Telugu speaking people with Hyderabad as its capital.The Telangana region comprises nine districts,including Hyderabad, witnessed violent movement for a separate state in 1970s.The Trs revived the movement in 2001.On Sep 1, 1953, Telugu-speaking Rayalseema and coastal Andhra areas of Madras State were separated to form Andhra state with Kurnool as its capital.This followed the death of Telugu leader Potti Sriramulu in December 1952 after a 56-day hunger strike to press the demand for a separate state for Telugus.
