Dattatreya, Ailing Wife Forced To Walk For Bonalu Darshan
Hyderabad: Central Minister Bandaru Dattatreya was on Sunday forced to walk his way for darshan at the Ujjaini Mahankali temple in Secunderabad, as Hyderabad Police prevented his vehicle from going till the entrance of the temple.
This was even as Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) MP Kavita, State Ministers and GHMC Commissioner Janardhan Reddy’s vehicles were allowed the passage. Dattatreya was prevented even though he requested for permission to drive through, as his wife was suffering from arthritis. Even his plea that he had to catch a flight to Tirupati shortly thereafter too was of no avail.
The police had stopped the Central Minister’s vehicle near the old building of Ramgopalpet police station and asked him to proceed on foot from there. BJP leaders have been shocked with such behaviour of the police. They wondered whether this was the way the police was acting to exhibit its loyalty towards the ruling TRS.
