NALGONDA: After his campaign convoy in Thungathurthy constituency faced public outrage, TRS candidate Gadhari Kishore is reportedly travelling with a tight police security. However, when asked about the same, he denied that the people were upset with his previous reign and hoped to return to power this year. In the last elections, Kishore wrested the Thungathurthy seat from Congress’ A Dayakar with a margin of 2,379 votes. However, villagers allege that the minister disappeared from the constituency once the elections were over. Two days ago, farmers of Musipatla and Anajipuram village of Mothkur mandal raised slogans against him. When farmers demanded action in the pattadar passbook case, TRS party workers attacked the farmers. Police rushed to the spot while tension prevailed in the area. Speaking to Express, Kishore defended his party workers alleging that there were some Congress’ workers trying to disturb his campaign.
