The leaders of the Telangana unit of the Congress today alleged that the Hyderabad police had assaulted party activists during a recent protest program
held to demand the lowering of petrol, diesel and LPG prices in the state and the country.
TPCC Publicity Committee chief Madhu Yashki Goud condemned the "excesses of the police" during their protest.
He targeted Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao for his "negligent ways", and alleged that the latter did even not respect the women of the state.
Referring to the statement of Agriculture Minister S Niranjan Reddy, that the educated youth could work as Hamalis to earn a living, Goud asked whether the idea was originally the CM's.
Claiming that the son of the CM was nowhere to be seen in the state, he also mocked IT and Industries minister K T Rama Rao for being a leader "confined to his Twitter handle".
The leader then urged his colleagues in the Congress to "expose" how Prime Minister Narendra Modi and CM KCR were "looting" the public by not lowering fuel prices, and said, "We had held demonstrations to prevent KCR and Modi from looting the public any further. I demand once again that the Centre immediately roll back fuel and domestic gas prices."
Goud also invited the Telangana movement activists to "join hands" with the grand old party to fight against KCR and PM Modi.
