Opposition parties are locking horns with the colony associations at Indira Park’s vicinity or Dharna Chowk of Telangana. The groups were seen in intense brawl who were not only raising slogans against each other but also were found throwing flags, sticks and chairs. A couple of them were seen injured in the scuttle.
TRS government decided to shift historic Dharna Chowk which played a crucial role in Telangana movement, from Indira Park to outskirts in Nagole. The Opposition parties including various organizations and people are protesting against the government’s decision and are demanding withdrawal of its decision.
However, the residents of the area along with members of Indira Park Morning Walkers’ Association are staging competitive protest opposing the political parties demonstration saying that regular protests are causing traffic problems and inconvenience to the locals. The opposition parties alleged that the sudden demand by colony associations against them is a sponsored by the TRS ruling party to hamper the campaign of the Dharna Chowk Protection Committee.
CP Mahender Reddy said all parties were permitted to stage protests at Dharna chowk. He said that the permission is valid only for today and the protests have to be conducted in peaceful atmosphere. He said action will be taken against those who violate the rules. The CP requested both the sides, the opposition parties and the residents to maintain endurance.
The ‘Chalo Indira Park’ movement on Monday has the support from all the opposition parties BJP, Congress, TDP CPI, CPM, Jana Sena.
