YS Sharmila prevented from leaving home; under house arrest

Hyderabad: YSR Telangana party chief YS Sharmila on Friday was prevented from leaving her residence to protest at the Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC) office over the alleged paper leak.

She accused Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekhar Rao of imposing section 144 in residential areas to curb protests that are not in his favour.

“You (KCR) are imposing Section 144 in residential areas so that there is no protest and we don’t go against the government. There is no democracy in Telangana,” said Sharmila.
