Two long years have passed since that eventful day when the courage of Telangana students forced the united AP leader YS Jagan to beat a hasty retreat. It was the day that showed the power of Telangana students to the Seemandhra leaders and their stooges like Konda Surekha. Even today, many Seemandhra leaders shake to set their foot on Telangana soil. Mahabubabad (Manukota) continues to inspire Telanganites.

It is said that Bhagat Singh got a fistful of soil from Jallianwala Bagh massacre site. Today, people of Telangana bring home stones from Mahabubabad Railway Station as souvenirs of fighting spirit.

And Telanganites are happy that Manukota has taken its revenge as YS Jagan is jailed exactly on the second anniversary of that incident.

We at Mission Telangana thought that it is time to remember those valiant student soldiers who braved the bullets of YS Jagan’s henchmen.
