Back in Hyderabad, the TRS leaders and workers organised several programmes to celebrate the occasion. Rao’s daughter and Nizamabd MP K Kavitha and minister G Jagadish Reddy cut a cake at the party office on the occasion.

They lauded the efforts of Rao in achieving separate statehood for Telangana. Equalling Rao with Mahatma Gandhi, Kavitha said Gandhi fought relentlessly for getting independence to the nation while Rao fought for separate Telangana.

Though Rao was not present in the state, the city roads, more particularly near the CM’s camp office, Secretariat and others, were filled with flexies and banners erected by party leaders and activists wishing Rao on his birthday.
