Prof. Kodandaram released the book on history of Telangana named ‘Telangana Charitra: Tahreek say Tashkeel tak’ at old press club Basheer Bagh. Addressing on the occasion as chief guest he said that historians of the past ignored history of Telangana hence Telangana Sahitya Porata, Telangana Muslah Jaddojahad, 1959 Movement, were missing from the history books. Local historians distorted the facts and mislead the Telangana people.
He claimed that books like ‘Telangana Charitra: Tahreek say Tashkeel Tak’ are a good source to reveal injustices done to the people of Telangana. He stressed the need to publish such books in Telugu and English also.
