Police Thwarts Congress' Chalo Raj Bhavan Program

The Telangana Congress' attempt to organise a Chalo Raj Bhavan program to protest the Centre's three farm laws was today thwarted by the police.
Hyderabad | 19th January 2021
The Chalo Raj Bhavan program held by the Congress leaders in Telangana today turned violent as the city police foiled the party's attempts to demonstrate against the Centre's three new farm Acts.

Prominent Congress leaders including TPCC president N Uttam Kumar Reddy, CLP leader Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, and MPs Komatireddy Venkat Reddy and A Revanth Reddy were arrested for their involvement in the program.

However, things took a turn for the worse when the leaders, who were arrested at the Telugu Talli flyover while attempting to cross NTR Marg, had an altercation with the arresting officers. The leaders were then shifted to the Saidabad police station.

Speaking to the media, Vikramarka lashed out at the union and the state governments for their "anti-farmer" policies, and alleged that the two governments were being unjust by ignoring the interests of the farmers of the country and the state.

The leader demanded that the union government roll back the "unjust" laws at the earliest, and that the state government also repeal its decision of closing down the grain procurement centres in the state.

MP A Revanth Reddy voiced his agreement with the CLP leader, and alleged that the BJP-led Centre was selling out 80 crore Indians to corporate companies.

"The anti-people BJP regime has now turned anti-farmer as well. By introducing the new farm laws, it has made the farmers of the country vulnerable to endless exploitation at the hands of big business interests. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has not even responded to the farmers' demands despite the death of 20 farmers," Reddy said.

This protest was the second major agitation organised by the Congress against the "anti-farmer" and "anti-people" state and union governments. Earlier, the party had also organised massive demonstrations at the state's district Collectorates.
