Telangana protagonists have tried to obstruct the UPA’s Presidential candidate Pranab Mukherjee’s convoy at the Prakashnagar flyover near Begumpet Airport where he arrived in Hyderabad in a special flight from Chennai on Sunday morning. They raised slogans in favor of Telangana. They demanded Pranab to make the centre to announce a decision on Telangana immediately.
The police failed to remove the Telangana protagonists, as adequate force was not present in the route Pranab was traveling in the City. Due to this, the alert Task Force Police, who were part of the Chief Minister’s convoy, have dispersed the Telangana protagonists from the way. Later the police have come to the spot and arrested them.
The Chief Minister, PCC Chief Botcha Sathyanayarana, several Ministers and Congress leaders have, earlier, welcomed Pranab Mukherjee in a grand way at the Begumpet Air Port.
