BRS slams development

The BRS party had condemned the development and questioned the “blatant curbing of freedom of the opposition party leaders” while the MCC for Lok Sabha polls is in place.

“The Model Code of Conduct is in place due to General elections but Congress “Praja Palana” in Telangana is blatantly curbing the freedom of opposition party leaders. Is this a fair election if an opposition leader cannot even move around in the state and also conduct a press meet at their party office? A police officer gets into the car of the Social Media Convenor and Spokesperson of our Party Manne Krishank and the police seem to be illegally detaining him for no reason. Hope @ECISVEEP @SpokespersonECI takes this into cognizance and initiates prompt action, the party said in a post on X.

BRS working president KT Rama Rao (KTR) slammed the Congress government over the move.
