HYDERABAD: Over 150 Telugu Desam Party leaders and cadres were arrested when they tried to charge towards Jubilee Hall from Indira Park on Thursday, protesting against the skyrocketing prices of essential commodities and non-availability of normal brand of diesel, fertilizers and pesticides.

The agitators staged a dharna at Indira Park and wanted to go towards the Jubilee Hall where Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy was addressing the Collectors’ conference.
