TRS MLA, others held while trying to attend a protest

Telangana Rashtra Samithi MLA K T Rama Rao and other leaders and activists of different pro-Telangana organisations were today taken in custody when they attempted to participate in the 'Samara Deeksha' protest at Indira Park here.

Hyderabad Police has already denied the Telangana Joint Action Committee (T-JAC) permission to organise a 36-hour 'Samara Deeksha' at Indira Park over the statehood demand.

Despite the denial of permission, Rama Rao, the MLA from Sircilla, and others tried to march towards the protest venue when they were prevented by police and taken into custody.

Telangana MLAs gathered in front of the Gandhi statue in Andhra Pradesh Assembly premises and were holding a dharna condemning the police for denying permission.
Tension also prevailed on the Osmania University campus when a group of pro-Telangana students pelted police with stones when they were prevented from taking out a rally in support of the protest towards Raj Bhavan.

Police have made elaborate security arrangements at various places in Hyderabad and other parts of Telangana region in Andhra Pradesh as a precautionary measure.
Police has barricaded the routes toward Indira Park and diverted traffic at different places including Assembly.

T-JAC chairman M Kodandaram had yesterday urged the people of the region to converge in large numbers at the protest venue.
