A wave of joy and cheer on Thursday swept the Osmania University, the nerve centre of the Telangana movement, after the Centre conceded to the demand of carving out a separate state from Andhra Pradesh.

the decision and organised a 'Vijayotsav', marking victory of their agitation.
Supporters in the region, cutting across parties, celebrated the statehood by bursting crackers and distributed sweets.
