Telangana GK, a brief overview

◗ The Hyderabad state joined the Union of India in 1948 after an Indian military invasion.

A peasant-driven movement began to advocate for separation from Andhra Pradesh starting in the early 1950s, and continued until Telangana was granted statehood on 2 June 2014 under the leadership of K. Chandrashekar Rao.
