dated March 7, 1956: Visalandhra to be formed

Prime Minister Nehru announced at a public meeting in Nizamabad (Hyderabad) on March 5 that the Government of India had finally decided to merge Telengana with Andhra with adequate safeguards for Telengana. He said there would be two Regional Councils to safeguard the interests of Telengana and Andhra. The function of the Regional Councils would be mainly to look after the regional development, education and the Government services. Mr. Nehru indicated that this decision had been arrived at with the consent of all the parties concerned. He did not indicate clearly what the name of the new State would be though he used the word "Visalandhra" several times. His announcement regarding Visalandhra was rather unexpected.
