HYDERABAD: BRS MPs participated in a peace rally organised by various political parties in Delhi on Tuesday, against the disqualification of Rahul Gandhi as an MP.

The rally, which started at Red Fort, continued up to India Gate.
Later, Nama Nageswara Rao expressed serious displeasure over the reply given by Education and Skill Development Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on his question on Women Entrepreneurship and Empowerment (WEE) scheme in the Lok Sabha. Nageswara Rao said that the Union Minister evaded a direct reply to his question. The BRS MP had sought information about the measures taken for the development of women under the WEE scheme. The Union Minister said that WEE was being implemented in 26 districts of Telangana.
Raising another question, Nama Nageswara Rao demanded that the Union government withdraw all the cases registered against farmers who protested against the three contentious farm Acts in 2021. Rama Rao also wanted the Centre to keep its assurance of providing MSP to all crops.
