Prominent among those arrested including City Congress committee president Komatireddy Narender Reddy, TPCC secretary Vaidyula Anjan Kumar, TPCC SC cell state convenor Venna Raja Mallaiah and others.

He alleged that the TRS government was using the police as private army for their selfish gains. He said that the TRS government would definitely face the wrath of the people for its undemocratic activities.
