Telangana State BJPLP leader G Kishan Reddy has said his party State president Dr K Laxman today launched Vimochana Yatra to mount pressure on the TRS government to conduct Telangana Liberation Day celebrations officially. On Friday, Laxman and Kishan Reddy performed special pujas at Sri Kanakadurgamma Ammavaaru temple at Basheerbagh crossroads before taking up the rally. From there, the BJP leaders proceeded in a rally and participated in a public meeting at RTC Kalabhavan. Later, the rally proceeded to the statue of Sardar Patel opposite Assembly and garlanded the statue and paid tributes to Martyrs Memorial Stupam.
Speaking on the occasion, Kishan Reddy alleged that Chief Minister K Chanrasekhar Rao was not interested in organizing Hyderabad Liberation Day celebrations officially to appease the MIM for political gain.

He asked the people to come along with Laxman to participate in Telangana Vimochana Yatra. BJP MLC Ramchender Rao, MLA Chintala Ramachandra Reddy and others participated.
Speaking at RTC Kalabhavan, Dr Laxman said the present TRS government was treading the same path as the previous governments so as the Telangana people forget their history, which is a shame on its part. He reminded that KCR had said that by not celebrating the Liberation Day in the Telangana, which was achieved with the struggle of people from all walks of life, which is the self-respect of Telangana people, the people are angry and once separate Telangana realizes the same would be celebrated officially.
Dr Laxman demanded how the state government has yielded to MIM, which tooth and nail opposed separate Telangana. He said that through Vimochana Yatra BJP will create awareness and take to the level of questioning the state government. He further said taking the double standards of TRS government into nook and corners and unite all sections of poeople. He said if Telangana people are insulted BJP will not endure it. He questioned if Telangana was not liberated, would TRS have come to power. Dr. Laxman said as the previous governments were taught lesson by people, even the TRS government will also be taught the same befitting lesson.
