KURNOOL: Rayalaseema has been part and parcel of Telengana as both regions shared a common legacy under the Nizams, president of Rayalaseema Hakkula Ikya Vedika T.G. Venkatesh said. The Nizam of Hyderabad ceded Rayalaseema districts and Bellary to the British in lieu of the troop maintenance allowance under the subsidiary alliance of Lord Wellesley, he said.
