PTC Web Desk: In a recent development, the Telangana Cabinet, under the leadership of Chief Minister Revanth Reddy, has undertaken a series of significant decisions set to redefine the state’s identity and governance. Among the key changes, the official abbreviation for the state will transition from ‘TS’ to ‘TG,’ and a new state anthem, ‘Jaya Jaya Ho Telangana’ by Andre Sri, will replace the current anthem.
The decision to alter the state’s abbreviation is grounded in the ruling dispensation’s contention that the former regime chose ‘TS’ to align with their party name, Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS). Previously known as Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), the abbreviation change reflects the party’s broader national aspirations.
Telangana Talli, the symbolic mother goddess of the state, is also set for a transformation with a new visual identity. The decision to reimagine Telangana Talli aligns with the state’s broader efforts to redefine its cultural and symbolic representations.
Additionally, the Telangana Cabinet has announced its intention to conduct a caste census in the state, consistent with the Congress’s commitment to conducting such a census nationwide. Chief Minister Revanth Reddy had previously indicated that the caste census would be initiated in the state soon.

These decisions were unveiled ahead of the Telangana Budget session, scheduled to commence on Thursday. Chief Minister Revanth Reddy, in a bold move, has challenged his predecessor K Chandrashekar Rao (KCR), KTR, and Harish Rao to a debate on irrigation projects on the floor of the Assembly, a challenge that the BRS has accepted.
The ongoing verbal sparring between the Congress and BRS revolves around accusations of neglecting the state’s interests and farmers. As part of its agenda for the Budget session, the state government plans to announce gas and power guarantees, with Chief Minister Revanth Reddy delivering these announcements in the assembly.
In another noteworthy development, the Cabinet has issued orders to allocate 100 acres for a new high court complex in Rajendranagar district, signaling a commitment to enhancing the state’s judicial infrastructure. The changes and initiatives underscore Telangana’s commitment to a renewed vision, encompassing cultural, administrative, and infrastructural dimensions.
