On September 17, the Chief Minister would hoist the national flag at a public garden and address the people while the ministers and other public representatives would do the same at their respective centres, it said.

A massive rally would be taken out in the city following which KCR would address a public meeting.

On September 18, freedom fighters of the state would be honoured in all the district headquarters besides felicitating the poets, artistes and other personalities.

The Cabinet has also decided to increase the number of beneficiaries under the Dalit Bandhu Scheme from 100 to 500 in every Assembly constituency, it said.
