Police Detained Telangana Congress Leaders Who Were Marching to Raj Bhavan

Hyderabad police detained leaders of the opposing Congress party walking towards Raj Bhavan as a major aspect of the protest over the recently established Farm Laws.

Driven by the party in-charge in the state Manickam Tagore, leaders of parties and activists attempted to head towards the Telangana Governor’s official home from close by Dilkusha visitor house.

Raising mottos against anti-farmer enactment, Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao, Modi government, they were halted by the police.

The leaders of Congress said they needed to present a memorandum to Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan or some other authority at Raj Bhavan yet the police wouldn’t permit them as there was no arrangement for the same.

Uttam Kumar Reddy, state Congress chief, said it was tragic they were denied arrangement to present the memorandum.

He stated: This is an injustice to the principal opposition party which always stood by farmers.

He said they were prepared to submit a memorandum to any official sent by the lead representative to the main gate, however, even this was not permitted.

He told: This is unfortunate. The governor, whose duty to safeguard the Constitution, should have at least allowed us to submit the memorandum.

The Leaders walk to Raj Bhavan by Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) was a portion of the countrywide protest brought by Congress over the controversial home enactment.

Tagore, who was as of late designated as state in-charge for Telangana, personally drove the protest. AICC secretaries Sreenivasan and Bose Raju, TPCC working president Ponnam Prabhakar and A. Revanth Reddy, Damodar Rajanarasimha, D. Sreedhar Babu, Sravan Dasoju and different leaders partook in the protest.

Tagore, who is on his initial visit to Hyderabad since he was appointed as Congress in-charge, called upon the party staff to actively take an interest in the continuous protests over farm enactment.
