A day after K Chandrasekhar Rao’s outburst against Prime Minister Manmohan Singh at the Samara Deeksha in Hyderabad, police in Arundelpet in Guntur booked him following a complaint.

Samaikyandra Parirakshana Samithi convener Md Hidayat on Tuesday lodged a complaint with the Guntur west DSP K Venkateswara Rao saying that the TRS leader had made derogatory remarks against the PM and the country, which is a crime under sections 124, 124(A), 153-B, 504 and 506 of IPC. Demanding his arrest at a press conference in Guntur city, Hidayat said that KCR was provoking innocent people and his speeches were hurting the sentiments of the Seemandhra people.

He called upon the people’s representatives in the Seemandhra districts to mount pressure on chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy and take criminal action against the TRS president. He also equated KCR’s speech to the hate speech by MIM MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi.

Meanwhile in Vijayawada, former MLA Adusumilli Jayaprakash also demanded the arrest of the TRS chief and Telangana JAC convener Prof M Kodandaram for their remarks. He lodged a complaint in the Machavaram police station and demanded that action be taken against the duo under sections 124A, 153A and 120B of IPC for trying to create differences among people of a state. Machavaram CI Satyanandam, however, said a decision on whether to file a case or not would be taken after consulting legal experts.
