KCR Declines Revanth Reddy’s Invitation for Telangana Formation Day Celebrations

In a surprising turn of events, K. Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR), the leader of the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) and former Chief Minister of Telangana, has declined an invitation from the current Chief Minister, A. Revanth Reddy, to attend the Telangana Formation Day celebrations on June 2. KCR’s decision to boycott the event is rooted in what he describes as the Congress government’s oppressive and dismissive attitude towards those who challenge its authority.

A Disheartening Invitation

In a detailed 22-page response to Revanth Reddy, KCR expressed his displeasure over the tone and content of the invitation. He felt the invitation lacked the respect and recognition deserving of someone who played a pivotal role in the creation of Telangana. KCR highlighted his extensive contributions to the Telangana movement, including leading the people’s movement, securing national political support, sacrificing constitutional posts, and risking his life.

Insult Over Honour

KCR articulated that an invitation to someone of his stature should be extended with greater honor and respect. He criticized the arrangements for the event, noting that the seating and speaking opportunities allotted to him were inadequate and insulting. KCR interpreted these arrangements as evidence of the Congress government’s arrogance and dominance.

The Legacy of Telangana’s Struggle

Reminding Revanth Reddy of the sacrifices made for Telangana’s statehood, KCR argued that the Telangana Formation Day should be a commemoration of the people’s struggle and the martyrs’ sacrifices, rather than a political favor by the Congress party. He accused the Congress government of attempting to rewrite the narrative to depict the creation of Telangana as an act of benevolence rather than the result of a hard-fought struggle.

Critique of Revanth Reddy’s Leadership

KCR did not hold back in his critique of Revanth Reddy’s leadership. He pointed out that despite being the Chief Minister, Revanth Reddy had never raised the ‘Jai Telangana’ slogan, which KCR considered a significant oversight. This, according to KCR, demonstrated a lack of genuine commitment to the spirit and ideals of the Telangana movement.

Boycott as a Statement

By boycotting the Telangana Formation Day celebrations, KCR is making a strong political statement against the Congress government’s approach. He is emphasizing the need for genuine respect and acknowledgment of the historical struggle that led to the formation of Telangana. KCR’s decision underscores the ongoing political tensions and the struggle for recognition and respect among Telangana’s leaders.

The Road Ahead

The decision of KCR to decline the invitation and his subsequent detailed critique reflect deeper political rifts in Telangana. As the state commemorates its formation, the absence of one of its key architects from the celebrations will be a poignant reminder of the challenges that remain in uniting the political landscape. The Congress government will need to address these grievances to foster a more inclusive and respectful environment for all political stakeholders in Telangana.


KCR’s refusal to attend the Telangana Formation Day celebrations is a significant political move that highlights the need for respect and recognition in political discourse. His detailed response to Revanth Reddy serves as a reminder of the sacrifices made for Telangana’s statehood and the importance of honoring those contributions appropriately. As Telangana moves forward, bridging these political divides will be crucial for the state’s unity and progress.
