Telangana Government Lifted Cases during Separate Telangana Agitation
Telangana government on Wednesday delivered a Dasara gift by providing relief to 690 persons against whom police cases were filed during the agitation for separate Telangana.
Home minister Nayani Narasimha Reddy who is undergoing treatment in City Hospital , instructed his staff to bring him the file pertaining to the issue and signed Orders lifiting the cases and formal government orders to this effect are expected to be released in a day or two.
The lifting of cases was one of Telangana Rashtra Samithi’s poll promises and was included in its election manifesto. However, there are still some more pending cases against persons who either destroyed or caused damage to central government property during the agitation that have not been lifted. According to officials, this would take some time as central government entities such as the Indian Railways and others that were targeted would have to give consent.
Telangana state government expressed confidence that this would happen soon.
