TPCC president Ponnala Lakshmaiah had to take the road route from Maddur mandal to Hanamkonda, against his original plan of taking a helicopter ride. As per the schedule, he was to arrive at Maddur alongwith Vijayashanthi and then come to Hanamkonda to inspect the ground at Madikonda village, venue of Rahul Gandhi’s meeting. The pilot reportedly said the fuel would not be enough for the trip as he had to go to Sangareddy, taking Vijayashanthi for a public meeting there. Hence, Ponnala Lakshmaiah had to come by road to Madikonda to oversee the arrangements to be made for Rahul Gandhi’s public meeting. - Special Correspondent
