Congress MPs from Telangana region held a protest at Andhra Pradesh chief minister's office in Hyderabad on Sunday after they were prevented from meeting Kiran Kumar Reddy over detention of Telangana supporters coming for Sunday's march.


The MPs like Madhu Yashki Goud, G Vivek and others wanted to meet the chief minister over detention of Telangana supporters, including Congress activists, coming to Hyderabad to participate in the march.

The march, to be held on Necklace Road at the Hussain Sagar lake in Hyderabad, has been called by the Telangana Joint Action Committee (JAC) in support of its demand for a separate state.

"The government gave permission for the 'march'. Congress workers from my constituency were coming to Hyderabad for the march but they were stopped and detained. I am getting calls. Other (Congress) MPs were getting similar calls. We wanted to meet the chief minister, but we were not allowed. CM did not meet us so... we held dharna," Madhu Yashki Goud said.

Later, the protesting MPs were taken to a different location.
