Senior Congress leader Marri Shashidhar Reddy today alleged that the city police had ill-treated him and not allowed him to attend the birth centenary celebrations of former Prime Minister late P V Narasimha Rao.
He said that although he didn't get any invitation he had gone to the PV Ghat on Necklace Road, but was stopped by the police.
He said that the police had told him that he couldn't attend the function, and that he needed to take the Hyderabad Police Commissioner's permission to do so.
Reddy said that he then called up the CP directly, and that the CP had told him that since it was a state program nobody could be allowed to the event until the Chief Minister paid his tributes.
He said that he felt humiliated by the treatment of the police.
He said that he had also learnt about the "instructions of the Chief Secretary" to not allow any Congress leaders to the program.
He said that the act of the police reflected the mindset of the TRS leadership and the Chief Minister KCR to not allow any Congressmen or opposition leaders in general to move around freely.
