Telangana separate movement of 1969 was not only a mass movement in Telangana, but also in the neighbouring states. Separate Telangana movement inspired Telugu community all over the country. Bombay and neighbouring districts in Maharashtra were in support of separate Telangana. Telangana movement of those years is marked by great activism and people’s participation, dialogue on socio-cultural and political economy issues of post separate Telangana state.
Bombay Telangana Samithi was formed on September 4, 1969. Separate Telangana agitation of 1969 stirred the hopes and drew activists from neighbouring states as well. There was also a Telugu monthly published during that time by Sri Ram Das, who later contested for Maharashtra Legislative Assembly.
