TRS leader and Jangaon MLA Muthireddy Yadagiri Reddy called upon his party activists and leaders in the constituency to stage protest against the Modi’s speech, following which hundreds of party workers gathered at Bus Stand Centre and took out a huge motorcycle rally with black flags.
The tri-cities of Hanamkonda, Warangal and Kazipet witnessed protest rallies and the effigies of Modi were burnt at many places.Speaking to the media in Hanamkonda, Government Chief Whip Dasyam Vinaya Bhaskar stated that Modi was not interested in developing Telangana.
