TRSV, MSF launch protests at OU demanding withdrawal of cases against Agnipath protestors

Hyderabad: Amidst the BJP's National Executive meeting being held in Hyderabad and hours before Prime Minister Narendra Modi's public address, a slight tension erupted at the Osmania University on Sunday afternoon.

Protests were organised by different parties, including Telangana Rashtra Samithi Vidyarthi (TRSV) – the student wing of TRS, and other Dalit Bahujan organisations, including Madiga Students Federation (MSF), against the Centre's Agnipath scheme in front of the OU Arts College.

At TRSV's demonstration, protestors were seen holding placards that read "Go Back Modi." The protestors raised slogans like "Down down Modi," and "Modi go back." They said it was shameful to file cases against Agnipath protestors.



"Our demand is that the government withdraw all cases filed against protestors who fought against the Agnipath scheme across India. In Telangana, around 55 protestors were booked in the Secunderabad protests. Just as how the Central government withdrew the farm laws, the Agnipath scheme should also be withdrawn," said Gellu Srinivas, TRSV state president.

Srinivas said a total of 60 members from TRSV participated in Sunday's protest and police arrested around 25 of them. He also said that TRSV is planning to hold a protest in front of the Parade Grounds where Mr. Modi is scheduled to address a public meeting this evening.

C. Srinivasulu, the PRO of Osmania University, said the police have been deployed inside the campus to ensure peace in the campus.

Meanwhile, a team of Madiga Reservation Poratta Samithi (MRPS) leaders tried to enter Novotel Hotel and were stopped by the police.



Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to address the public at the Parade Grounds on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. BJP workers from across the state are expected to attend the meeting.

BJP leaders from across the country are in the city to attend BJP's National Executive meeting being held on 2 and 3 July at the Hyderabad International Convention Centre. Besides Mr. Modi, the two-day meeting is attended by BJP national president J.P Nadda, Union Home minister Amit Shah, the Chief Ministers of 19 states, and other senior BJP leaders.
