Story of MULKI rules

The feelings of local people were so intense about being alienated and being denied of their rights that a ‘Non-Mulki Movement’ started in 1952 against the continuance and domination of people from outside the State. More important, this gave birth to the fears and apprehensions in the minds of the local people about what could happen to them if they were to merge with the neighbouring State of Andhra.

This movement lasted over a month and students from all the regions of the Hyderabad state spontaneously participated in this popular movement seeking employment of people from within the State in government jobs. Four people laid down their lives when the government attempted to suppress the movement with force. The purpose of recalling this episode is to bring home the point the damage that can be inflicted by an indifferent administration with no accountability and a government that does not represent the will of the people. In a way,
the demand for a separate statehood for Telangana had its roots in the mulki agitation.
