Condemning the lathicharge on pro-Telangana and TRS activists during the TDP ‘Ranabheri' and visit of Union Minister D. Purandeswari, TRS town president S. Ravinder Singh flayed the district police for registering cases against the pro-Telangana activists in Karimnagar.

Talking to newsmen here on Saturday, he charged the police with purposefully foisting several false cases against the pro-Telangana activists to suppress the Statehood movement. He said that when some people hurled eggs on the convoy of TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu during his electioneering in Kadapa by-elections recently, no cases were registered against the protestors. He demanded that the government cancel the weapon licence of TDP legislator Revanth Reddy and register a criminal case against him for threatening people.
