Celebrations break out in Telangana

Hyderabad, July 30, 2013 (IANS):

Celebrations broke out in different parts of Telangana Tuesday night soon after the Congress announced its decision to give separate statehood to the region.

Osmania University, the nerve centre of the Telangana agitation, burst into celebrations as students greeted each other, burst crackers and distributed sweets.

Activists of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) burst crackers and raised slogans at Telangana Bhavan, the party headquarters in Hyderabad.

However, TRS leaders were cautious in their reaction. TRS legislator K. Taraka Rama Rao said the real celebrations would take place only when the Telangana bill is passed in parliament

There were also celebrations by Congress activists in Telangana. Raising slogans of 'Jai Telangana', they exploded crackers and distributed sweets in Hyderabad and in nine other districts of the region.
