According to sources, Kiran Kumar Reddy reportedly asked the Telangana Ministers to prevail upon the Telangana Political Joint Action Committee to defer the Telangana March as Ganesh immersion and International Conference on Biodiversity were falling on September 29 and October 1. However, he also told the Ministers that it would not be possible to give permission for Telangana March on Tank Bund and Necklace Road as Ganesh immersion takes some more time.
According to reports, Kiran Kumar Reddy also reminded the Ministers of violence that took place during the Million March in 2011. He also assigned the responsibility of prevailing upon the TPJAC to Telangana Ministers to either postpones the March or change the venue. After the meeting, the Ministers proceeded to hold consultations with the TPJAC over the issue.
Out of 15 Telangana ministers, four Ministers Danam Nagender (Labour), M Mukesh Goud (Marketing), Ponnala Lakshmaiah (IT) and Ramireddy Venkata Reddy (Horticulture) did not turn up for the meeting.
