He said that there is every need to protect the accused persons to collect the complete information pertaining to the leakages and the role of the ‘big people’.
Mr Praveen Kumar launched the fast unto death programme at the BSP office in Lakdikapool in Hyderabad on Friday demanding the cancellation of TSPSC Group-I preliminary examinations. The police forces were pressed in large numbers and arrested him by breaking open the doors and shifting him to his house and keeping him under house arrest. However, Mr Praveen Kumar continued his fast programme at his house also.
Demanding TSPSC chairman B Janardhan Reddy to step down from the post following the leakages, he said that he would meet the Telangana state governor Tamilisai Soundararajan and President Draupadi Murmu.

The other political parties only played dramas, he said informed the students to be confident and study hard to secure jobs and assured them that the BSP would strive for their welfare.
Stating that MLC Kavitha would be arrested very soon, he flayed the Telangana ministers for neglecting the plight of 30 lakh unemployed youth and rushing to Delhi to protect an accused person. He said that he would take a decision on calling off his fast unto death programme only after talking to the party leaders.
