PM welcomes Telangana as 29th state

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today hailed the formation of Telangana and promised complete central support to help take the state to newer heights of progress.

He congratulated K Chandrasekhar Rao on becoming the first Chief Minister of the 29th state and expressed best wishes to its people.

"India gets a new state! We welcome Telangana as our 29th state. Telangana will add strength to our development journey in the coming years," he tweeted.

"Centre assures complete support to the people & Government of Telangana in taking the state to newer heights of progress," he said.

Noting that Telangana's birth is taking place after years of struggle and sacrifices by several people, Modi said, "We pay our respects to them today."

"My best wishes to people for the state's development journey," the Prime Minister said.
K Chandrasekhar Rao was today sworn in as Chief Minister of newly-carved out state of Telangana.

A notification was issued early today revoking President's Rule in Telangana to facilitate Rao in taking charge as the first Chief Minister of the state.
