One person died in the police firing at Mahbubabad railway station as T- activists and Congress workers clashed over the Congress MP from Kadapa, Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy’s, Odarpu yatra. Trouble began when T-activists and Congress workers started pelting stones at one another. Following the violence Mr Jagan was taken into police custody on Friday at Vangapally.
Protesting against the police firing, the students from T-JAC have called for a Telangana bandh on Saturday. On Friday Mr Jagan made a move for the yatra which aims at consoling the families of those who died following the sudden demise of his father Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy in a chopper crash last year.
