Brief Notes:
From the Formation of the Independent Hyderabad state to the Visalaandhra or Andhra Pradesh, this area has confronted a large number of issues and up and downs in the piece of political and historical changes for a long time around 230 yrs.

At the outset, it confronted the overbearing policies and inefficient rule of the Nizams. From time to time it encountered some improvements through the authoritative reforms, on the opposite side, it was influenced by the control of the British, due to the impact of such a large number of developments which were brought up in the regime of last Nizam, especially, the impact of Telangana Armed battle and freedom movements and etc which resulted in free Hyderabad state participating in the Indian Union 1948.

Attacks on communists and Muslims in the military rule of J.N.Choudary 1948, the government replaced by M.K.Vellodi civil rule. It was for less period. After the general decision in 1952, the period of Burgula Rama Krishna Rao was begun in Hyderabad state politics. That means, from the earliest starting point of the mulki movement in 1952, along with continuous problems in state and also seen some land reforms due to the Bhoodan movement.

With SRC the Telugu-speaking Telangana and Andhra were combinedly framed as the new state like Andhra Pradesh on 1st Nov 1956. State formation was possible because of Gentlemen’s Agreement and the political motive. It was said that the new state was formed as a strong urge/desire of Telugu-speaking people.
