Cong holds protest against 'illegal' merger of party MLAs with TRS

Wednesday, June 12, 2019

Hyderabad: Stepping up its attack on TRS over the "illegal" merger of 12 Congress MLAs in Telangana with that party, the opposition Congress staged protests yesterday in Hyderabad and other towns in the state.

Activists of National Students Union of India (NSUI), the students wing of Congress, organised a protest at Nampalli area here against the merger of the 12 Congress MLAs with the TRS and "forced" hospitalisation of Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader M Bhatti Vikramarka.

Congress leaders and workers, raising slogans against TRS,held protests at Karimnagar and other places in the state.

Vikramarka began an indefinite fast at Dharna Chowk in the city on Saturday against the merger.

He was shifted to a government hospital Monday morning by police in view of his "failing health" and also for holding the protest beyond the permitted time.

Vikramarka called off his fast in the hospital Monday following an appeal by state Congress president N Uttam Kumar Reddy and other leaders. They urged him to end the fast as his health was a matter of concern.

Uttam Kumar Reddy, also MP-elect, Monday said his party would seek an appointment with the President to take up the "illegal" merger issue with him, besides raising it in Parliament.

Telangana Assembly Speaker P Srinivas Reddy Thursday last recognised 12 MLAs of Congress as members of TRS, hours after they moved him, seeking merger of their group with the ruling party.
