Setting aside all speculations that the celebrations will again be held at the Parade Ground, the state government on Monday announced Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao will unfurl the national flag at the fort.
Chief Secretary Rajiv Sharma held at a meeting with top officials to review the arrangements for the main official function.
It was decided that the chief minister will unfurl the national flag at the fort at 10 a.m. after paying tributes to martyrs at a memorial at Parade Ground in Secunderabad.
The Golconda Fort originally belonged to the Kakatiyas of Warangal. In AD 1363, it was ceded to the Baihmanis. After their downfall in AD 1518, it became the capital of the Qutb Shahi Kings.
Subsequently, Aurangazeb annexed it to the Mughal empire.
