The police raided the houses of Telangana Congress leader Revanth Reddy’s associates on Sunday. Revanth alleged that CM Chandrashekar Rao was targeting them due to fear of losing elections.
Kodangal: In the wee hours of Sunday, the police conducted searches at the houses of the Kodangal Congress mandal president, Yousuf and his supporters Ramachandra Reddy and advocate Madhusudhan. The trio are the associates of Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) working president, A Revanth Reddy.
The police also tried to search the house of Revanth’s brother Kondal Reddy but they were stopped by the Congress members from entering the house.
As soon as the news about the search spread, Revanth, along with his supporters staged a protest against the police at the search spot.
Revanth alleged that the Telangana caretaker chief minister K Chandrasekar Rao (KCR) was targeting him and his associates by misusing the police force to conduct search operations.
According to reports, Revanth said that KCR was scared of losing the December 7 elections and was thus trying to attack them physically.
He has demanded that the People’s Front workers and leaders join him in a bandh on December 4 to protest against KCR’s visit to Kodangal and fight for justice.
The police officers, however, denied the allegations and said that they were doing their duty. The search operations were conducted after receiving complaints that the Congress workers were distributing money to voters.
