Bangalore: BJP President Amit Shah will visit Gorata village near Bidar in north Karnataka on September 17 to attend the ground-breaking ceremony for setting up a memorial by the party to mark "Independence of Hyderabad" from the Nizam rule.

State BJP President Prahllad Joshi announced Shah`s visit to reporters after a meeting of party`s district presidents and general secretaries here.
Gorata is called Jalianwala Bagh of South India after Nizam`s militia massacred people of Gorata for hoisting the Indian flag on May 19, 1948, Joshi said. Gorata was under Hyderabad Nizam who was reluctant to be a part of India.
Under the "Operation Polo" in 1948 that overthrew the Nizam, the state of Hyderabad became part of India.
