Condemning the pelting of stones on Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu’s convoy in Ranga Reddy district allegedly by allegedly Telangana Rashtra Samithi activists on Monday, Praja Rajyam Party official spokesperson Gautham on Tuesday stated that in a democracy, any person can travel anywhere and speak on any issue.
Talking to media persons at the PRP office in Jubilee Hills, Gautham asked TRS leader not to provoke students and resort such attacks by raising controversies at critical juncture when a report by the Srikrishna Commission on the future of the state is due.
The TRS activists had attacked the convoy of the TDP chief as the party had not made its stand clear on Telangana statehood issue, he pointed out.
The PRP spokesman blamed the TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao for using students as pawns in Telangana issue and provoking them to such attacks.
He blamed the government of failure to provide proper security cover for the Opposition leader and said that the Home Minister should be held responsible for law and order problems.
