A high drama prevailed in front of district jail here on Sunday following the arrival of several hundreds of Telangana protagonists including the striking employees and the Congress rank and file to meet Karimnagar MP Ponnam Prabhakar, former Minister T Jeevan Reddy and others who were arrested and remanded to judicial custody.

Following the news about the Telangana Congress MPs led by Rajya MP K Kesava Rao would visit Karimnagar to meet the local MP in the jail, the Congress leaders have started arriving in large numbers at the jail. However, the jail authorities have refused permission to the leaders. Telangana activists have demanded the Telangana Congress MPs' their resignations and entered into an argument with the Congress leaders and when the situation was losing out of control, the police swung into action and separated both the groups.
