Congress Party gave a call for Chalo Pragathi Bhavan in support of the RTC Employees who has been holding strike since few weeks. So, Cops took several Congress Leaders into custody and house arrested others as a preventive measure. They, however, failed to find the whereabouts of Revanth Reddy since last night.
All of a sudden, Revanth Reddy appeared near Pragathi Bhavan wearing a black shirt and jeans. Tension prevailed as Cops tried to stop Revanth and his Followers. Still, The Firebrand Leader tried to move forward. That is when Cops surrounded Revanth Reddy and the Congress MP began raising 'CM Down Down' slogan. He warned, 'Now, We touched the gate of Pragathi Bhavan. In future, We will demolish it'.
Revanth Reddy demanded Ex-Gratia for RTC Employee who breathed his last by attempting suicide. Police took him into custody and shifted to a far away location.
Former MP Anjan Kumar Yadav and MLA Jagga Reddy were arrested for trying to target Pragathi Bhavan to escalate the RTC agitation.
In a strategic manner, Congress Leaders planned to surround Pragathi Bhavan one after the other. Security has been beefed up in the premises and surroundings of CM Camp Office-cum-Residence. These measures resulted in huge traffic jam from Secunderabad to Begumpet.
