Telangana caretaker CM KCR is getting ready for the public meeting in Kosgi in Kodangal constituency. It is known that Kodangal is the constituency of Congress leader Revanth Reddy so, he gave a call to the people to conduct rallies of protest towards KCR on the same day. Everybody knows the rivalry of KCR and Revanth Reddy and this development didn’t surprise anyone.
But the reaction of KCR to Revanth’s protest rallies is attracting huge criticism. KCR asked the police department that there should be no protests are rallies against the TRS government. So, the police department has imposed 144 section and deployed thousands of police personnel to control the protesting crowd. The police have arrested Revanth Reddy at 3 AM in the morning and he has been taken to Shamshabad police station. The police have also arrested a few other Congress, TDP leaders.
This development attracting huge criticism. It is quite common that the opposition parties protest against the ruling government. But imposing 144 section for conducting political meetings is indicating KCR’s sense of insecurity. It seems he is worried that the Mahakutami is giving a tough fight so he doesn’t want their protests to grab the attention of the people and the media.
