Protestors answer call to take fight to homes of ministers

UNP ImageHyderabad: With the indefinite strike in support of the formation of a Telangana state entering a 17th day, agitators all over the region made life difficult for the ministers and other elected representatives.

Responding to the call of the Telangana Joint Action Committee, they laid siege to the homes of the ministers and other leaders and also blocked their way.

In Hyderabad, the protestors gheraoed the house of the minister D. Nagendar and MLA T. Maneamma demanding their immediate resignation in support of Telangana.

Hundreds of lawyers gathered near the house of Nagendar in Jubilee Hills beating the drums and shouting slogans.

Police had barricaded the house with barbed wire and took the agitators in to custody. TRS leader N. Narasimha Reddy was arrested near the house of T. Maneamma.

In Nalgonda district, the agitators stopped the convoy of the minister for infrastructure development K Venkat Reddy and threw eggs at him. They asked him to come to his district after getting his resignation accepted by the Speaker. Police resorted to lathicharge to disperse the agitators.

Similarly, the houses of many other ministers including Sunita Lakshma Reddy and Ponnala Lakshmaiah and member of Parliament Rajaiah were also gheraoed in their home towns.

"Our struggle will not stop till Telangana becomes a separate state. We are ready to make any sacrifice", said Narendar Rao, president of the Joint Action Committee.
