He strongly condemned the arrest of the lawyers.
Stating that the government was conducting Rachchabanda in Telangana region under the blanket of police security, he reminded that for chief Ministers’ Rachabanda at Molugu, which had 1500 population, five thousand policemen, three DSPs and one SP were deployed at the place. He also strongly objected the preventive custody of huge number of local people including Telangana activists and BJP workers.
