Telangana -Important Points

The state of Telangana became the 29th state of India on 2 June 2014. It was previously a part of the state that was earlier known as Andhra Pradesh. Before India became independent it was included in the state of Hyderabad, which

comprised two  divisions, namely, Warangal and Medak. At that time the region was governed by  the Nizams. The region has been in news recently as the focal point of a tussle  between the erstwhile state of Andhra Pradesh and the

national administration – while the Union Government has agreed to the creation of the new state, Andhra Pradesh has opposed it on grounds of territorial integrity. The region, as per the 2011 Census, has a population of 3, 52,86,757,

which accounted for 41.6% of the  population of Andhra Pradesh.
