Hyderabad, Aug 24 (IANS) The workers of BJP and BRS clashed in Telangana’s Hanamkonda town on Thursday during a protest.

The police arrested a few leaders of BJP, including state spokesperson Rakesh Reddy and Warangal district president Rao Padma. The BJP workers tried to lay siege to the MLA’s office in response to the call given by leadership to organise statewide protests over failures of the BRS government.

He alleged that a large number of anti-social elements attacked them. He said that the police protected the anti-social elements.

Meanwhile, tension also prevailed near the residence of civil supplies minister Gangula Kamalakar in Karimnagar. Alleging that the minister has gone back on the promise made to the people of the constituency, the BJP workers tried to lay siege to his house.

Police arrested the protesting BJP workers and shifted them to the police station.
