HRBR layout residents protest eviction move

The protesters said that most of the residents were are retired persons who had put in all their money on the house. They said that their efforts to contact local MLA, nd Home Minister K J George, and corporator Kodanda Reddy since Monday went in vain. “No politician has so far come to our help” they rued.
