State: Amit Shah to Lay Foundation Stone
'Jallianwala Bagh of South India' Martyr’s Memorial
Bharatiya Janata Party- National President, Amit Shah is likely to attend a special function in Karnataka on September 17. He will lay foundation stone at Gorata village in Bidar district to mark the ‘independence of Hyderabad from Nizam rule’.
Informing media about the event, BJP State Yuva Morcha President, P Muniraju Gowda said that foundation stone laying function is organised on September 17 as it was on September 17, 1948 that Hyderabad was liberated from the Nizam rule and merged into the Indian Union. The youth wing of the party will hand over Rs 27 lakh collected from 2.7 lakh youths in various districts to party state president Pralhad Joshi for construction of the memorial.
“A martyr’s memorial as well as the statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, who was instrumental in integrating Hyderabad into Indian Union, will come up at Gorata.” said Gowda.
The memorial will be completed in a year and Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be invited to inaugurate it, Gowda said.
“Gorata Jagruti Rath Yatra” will be taken out in all the talukas of all six districts – Bidar, Gulbarga, Raichur, Koppal, Yadgir and Bellary, spread across Hyderabad- Karnataka region. The two memorials will be ready in a year's time and Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate it, he added.
Gorata is called Jallianwala Bagh of South India after the Nizam army massacred people of Gorata for hoisting the Indian flag in 1948. It was on September 17 that Hyderabad was liberated from the Nizam rule and merged into the Indian Union. An event in memory of the Gorata martyrs will be held at the Malleswaram Grounds in Bangalore on August 15 and will be attended by Union Chemicals and Fertiliser Minister H N Ananth Kumar. —Bureau Report
