Revanth Reddy, a front-runner for the post of Chief Minister, took to X to pay tribute to Chary, saying that he kept the Telangana aspirations sky-high.

“Kudos to the immortals who kept Telangana’s aspirations high in the sky… The time has come to fulfill the aspirations of the immortals and the aspirations of four crore people.”

After polling concluded on November 30, Revanth Reddy recalled that it was on this day that Chary set himself ablaze, and he succumbed on December 3.

The Congress leader had predicted that the party would come to power to fulfill the aspirations of the martyrs.

Chary’s self-immolation had triggered massive protests for the bifurcation of Telangana from Andhra Pradesh.

On December 9, 2009, the then UPA government at the center announced that the process for the formation of Telangana state would be initiated.

Revanth Reddy has already said that the Congress Chief Minister will take the oath on December 9, which is also the birthday of former party president Sonia Gandhi.
