Bharat Bandh: Will police arrest protesting TRS leaders, asks Dr Sravan Dasoju

Hyderabad: AICC Spokesperson Dr Sravan Dasoju asked if the Telangana police will arrest or detain TRS ministers, MLAs and other leaders who will protest the Central government's anti-farmer acts, as part of the call for a nationwide bandh on 8 December. It is known that Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao has decided to extend his party's support to the farmers protesting the new farm laws in Delhi for the last 12 days. The bandh was called by a large number of political parties and farmer associations.

According to the senior Congress party leader, whenever the opposition parties, including the Congress, protest any 'anti-people' policy decisions in Telangana, the police used to put the leaders under house arrest. So, he doubted whether the same treatment will be applied for the TRS leaders on Tuesday. "Curious to know if the Telangana police tomorrow restrict TRS Ministers, MLAs, MPs and Leaders through house arrests which was a usual undemocratic practice whenever opposition conducted or be selective in their policing (sic)", Dr Sravan tweeted.

Dr Sravan further criticised the stand taken by KCR who he said has been crippling the farmers in Telangana over the last six years by forcibly introducing controlled farming in the state. "Despite the farmers producing crops dictated by you (KCR), the state government isn't buying their produce in time. However, you are now coming out in support of farmers to make a new drama", he alleged.

"It is a fact that the TRS government never supported the farmers in Telangana. KCR ignored agriculture and never talked about the farmer suicides in the state. No minimum support price has been given to them. The TRS has only been supporting the NDA government by endorsing each of its reforms right from note ban to GST," he said.

"But now, KCR has now changed his stand and commenced a new drama to further betray the farming community. Almost 5,000 farmers have committed suicide in this state. No MSP has been paid for the rice and maize that has not been purchased from the farmers", Dr Sravan added.
