Vendors stage sit-in

HYDERABAD, FEB. 26. Vegetable vendors staged a sit-in at the Falaknuma Railway Station and held up the special train in which Mr. Bandaru Dattatreya came to inaugurate the station. With their huge baskets, the vegetable sellers, including a large number of women, sat on the track demanding extension of the MMTS trains up to Umdanagar.

They gave up the protest only after extracting an assurance from the Minister. Earlier, Mr. Dattatreya was given a tumultuous welcome by BJP workers when he arrived at Falaknuma. Party flags and banners fluttered all over the railway station.
