A. Revanth Reddy, the President of the Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC,) has been under house custody of the City Police.

The arrest came after Mr. Revanth Reddy announced to visit Kokapet lands and called for a protest against the encroachment of government lands. Revanth Reddy said, “I was ready to go to Parliament but state government deployed police to place me under house arrest. It happened because state government sold some properties, over 50 acre of land, to some of their relatives, party leaders and IAS officers at undervalue.” He further added, “I had warned the state government that I’ll give complaint to PM, home minister and CBI Director in Delhi over this and raise the issue in Parliament. If we raise voices against state government’s loot, they book us, arrest us and place us under house arrest. We’ll fight against it(sic.)”

To control Revanth Reddy, on the 19th of July, a large number of Hyderabad police officials were deployed at his house. After arguments and efforts to reach Kokapet, later in the day, the police had to arrest Mr. Revanth Reddy.

Recently, the K. Chandrashekar Rao led Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) Government announced to auction government lands, likely to be illegally encroached, for welfare activities in Telangana.

Considering the economic issue and low revenue due to the Novel Coronavirus pandemic, the Government decided to auction the lands. Revanth Reddy not only called for a protest, but also accused the TRS Government of corruption in the name of raising funds for the welfare activities and schemes.

Revanth Reddy took to Twitter and said, “Fearing I will take up the Kokapet lands sale scam in the parliament, Police at the instance of CM and DGP prevented me from attending the parliament session. This is violation of my parliamentary privileges as an MP

No matter what @inctelangana will bring truth to ligh

Meanwhile, the Telangana Government denied all the allegations of the TPCC Chief and said the auction process was held in a transparent manner.
