Hyderabad: Today, June 2 the Telangana State Formation Day is being celebrated across the state by hoisting the national flag but this year the celebrations were not grand as previous years due to COVID-19 pandemic.
June 2 is celebrated every year as Telangana Formation Day as this is the day when the Telangana state officially came into existence under the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act of Parliament in 2014.
On Telangana State Formation Day, the state also awards its citizens for exemplary contribution in various fields like science, art, and literature but this year this event too remained affected due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
