Telangana Ministers Present Themselves Before Court
Secunderabad: Three Ministers of the Telangana Cabinet presented themselves before the Railway Court in Secunderabad on Wednesday.
A case was lodged against the three – KT Rama Rao, Nayani Narasimha Reddy and T Padma Rao Goud, apart from others, for staging a rail roko and holding up trains at Moulali Railway Station in 2011 as part of the Separate Telangana Movement.
