TRS Leaders including party chief and present Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has always declared around 2,000 people have committed suicide for the Telangana statehood. Even though few other leaders quoted different numbers, the count was always over 1,200.
To everyone's shock, TRS Government released a list of Telangana Martyrs recently and it consists of just 459 names. It was mentioned that the kin of all these deceased would be paid Rs 10 lakhs each.
Several Osmania University Students who immolated themselves for the cause have been ignored. Opposition Parties have launched an attack on TRS Leaders for ignoring the martyrs because of whom they were power Today.
Responding to the criticism, Home Minister Nayani Narasimha Reddy said Government would find out if anyone has been left out and include them in the final list.
