TRS leader’s car vandalised for blocking way of Shah’s convoy
Hyderabad: The security personnel of Union Home Minister Amit Shah allegedly vandalised the car of a leader of the Telangana Rashtriya Samiti (TRS) for reportedly blocking the way of Shah’s cavalcade, sources said on Saturday.
The incident occurred near a hotel in Begumpet when Shah was returning there after attending a function held at Parade Grounds in Secunderabad to celebrate the Hyderabad Liberation Day. Gosula Srinivas Yadav, a TRS leader, was driving the car that security personnel vandalised.
On the occasion of Hyderabad Liberation Day Shah hoisted the national flag and reviewed the parade by central paramilitary forces.
Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao did not take part in the event as the state government celebrated September 17 at National Unity Day.
Yadav, however, said that the car had stopped and that there was no deliberate attempt to do that. Before he could move ahead, the vehicle’s rear windshield was damaged, he said, adding that he would speak to the police officers about the incident.
A video clip of the incident went viral on social media. A Member of Parliament of the Bharatiya Janata Party K Laxman said that the TRS government was responsible for the incident, because it was a case of security lapse. Laxman said that there was a similar incident when Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma had been visiting the state. In that incident, a TRS leader tried to dislodge the mike when Sarma was addressing an immersion procession being taken out on the last day of Ganesh festival on September 9.
