The entire nation was celebrating Independence day but a part of this country did not play the clarinets of freedom and people over there were facing a violation. A few parts of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Maharashtra were ruled by Nizam. Later, Sardar Patel liberated Hyderabad on September 17, 1948.”
