On Thursday, all of Telangana's top congressional leaders were placed under house arrest by police to thwart a request from the Chalo Secretariat
On Thursday, all of Telangana's top congressional leaders were placed under house arrest by police to thwart a request from the Chalo Secretariat to speak with ministers about excessive electricity bills, sparking outrage among consumers.
A police car is parked in front of TPCC head N. Uttam Kumar Reddy, CLP leader Bhatti Vikramarka, current TPCC presidents A. Revant Reddy, MP Bhongir, Komatireddi Venkata Reddy and former PCC MLA head T. Jaggy Reddy. Ponnala Lakshmaiah and V. Hanmanth Rao, former MP Anjan Kumar Yadav, were unable to go outside.
Congress leaders said the police had no reason to stop them from leaving their homes. Manthani MLA, D. Sridhar Babu was arrested near Ravindra Bharati on his way to the conference hall. Several other leaders across the city were forced to stay at home, and police mobilized cars and men to leave their homes or not be arrested.
Uttam Kumar Reddy tweeted that the police stayed at his home and would not let him leave. He also posted a video of a police officer sitting in front of his house. Bhati Vikramarka wondered why the government was so intimidated when the parliamentary party wanted to meet with ministers and represent them.
He said that Chalo secretariat was not summoned and the party wanted to meet with prime ministers and ministers to report the inflated electricity tariffs, which are affecting consumer spending and rising coronavirus cases.
Agriculture Minister S. Niranjan Reddy told him to come at 10 am, but the police would not let him, he said.
Revanth Reddy asked the police at home to take him by car to Gandhi Hospital to talk to the amazing young doctor and reassure him that he would not go to the office.
"You take me in your vehicles or let me go in mine as I want to visit the doctors sitting on strike in the rain throughout the night," he stated.
In response to the arrest of the chief minister, Mr. Komati Reddy said Telangana was facing a dictatorship and the government could ask people to pay excessive electricity bills without paying rent for three months. Instead of relieving stress on people, they relax and exacerbate the problem
