Telangana Movement

There was a social tension that arose due to the rush of people from the Coastal Andhra region. The protest started with a hunger strike among the students of Khammam district to execute the safeguard promised during the creation of Andhra Pradesh. This steadily manifested in a separate Telangana. The word "Telinga" changed over time to "Telangana" and the name "Telangana" was nominated to distinguish the primarily Telugu-speaking. There were various forms of the movement such as rallies, hunger strikes, and suicides that continued throughout Telangana to protest against the delay in ramifying the State.

During the movement, there were various demands which included Andhra communists' call for the breakup of Hyderabad State and the formation of Visalandhra, a unified Telugu speaking state composed of Telangana and the Andhra region of the Madras Presidency, in line with the Communist Party of India's demand for the linguistic reorganization of states.
