As Tata Prasad said, some other people may be adding/revising the
information he posted with reference to poet Ghaddar.

As far as the poem that has the refrain "nAzeela mincinavurO, naijAmu
sarkarODA" is, I believe, written during the early fifties, when atrocities
were being perpetrated in the telangANA region by razAkArs.
I am almost sure it is written by the telangANA poet, kALOjee nArAyaNa
rAv.
Perhaps Ghaddar modified/popularized it during the naxalite struggles;
though I fail to understand who he would be addressing as "nAijAmu
sarkarODA".

It is written to inspire the freedom (???) fighters Nizam was comapred to
Naazee to inspire the communist disiples....

I think it is Gaddar not Ghaddar
