Hyderabad: The BJP Kisan Morcha activists on Thursday kept the police on tenterhooks with their attempts to gatecrash into the Secretariat as a protest demanding Minimum Support Price (MSP) for paddy.
In two batches, the Kisan Morcha activists rushed towards the main entrance gate of the Secretariat creating tension. When the first batch made an attempt to rush towards the entrance gate, the alert police personnel abruptly closed the gates of the Secretariat and pacified the agitators. Suddenly, the second group led by the Morcha State president, Mr G Kishore, appeared on the scene causing tense situation. Protesting against apathy of the State government in providing remunerative price to the paddy, they poured the crop in front of the Secretariat and staged a dharna.
The police arrested the agitators and whisked them way from the place. (NSS)
