Kodandaram Released, TRS Attacks Him
Hyderabad: Telangana Joint Action Committee (TJAC) chairman Professor M Kodandaram and Coordinator and Electricity JAC leader K Raghu were released and dropped at the former’ residence in Tarnaka at 8.30 pm on Wednesday. Kodandaram demanded that all those who were arrested in connection with the rally have to be set free forthwith. He thanked the people for making the rally a success.
Home Minister Nayani Narasimha Reddy flayed Kodandaram for provoking the student community. He alleged that there are proxies behind Kodandaram. He claimed that the government had given 35,000 jobs. He said he failed to understand why Telangana persons should conspire against the government which is the result of statehood movement.
Palla Rajeswara Reddy also found fault with Kodandaram for trying to take out a rally of the unemployed at a time when the government is doing everything possible to implement the promise. He said no opposition party has supported TJAC rally. Majority of the student associations have stayed away from the rally. Reddy said the government is doing its job of keeping law and order and Kodandaram and others were taken in to preventive custody.
Chief Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao who returned to Hyderabad after offering expensive gold ornaments to Lord Balaji at Tirumala chose not to comment on the day’s developments back home.
