Hyderabad: Tensions prevailed at the Kakatiya University as Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) protested at the varsity gate ahead of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s ‘Nirudyoga March’ on Saturday.

Effigy of prime minister Narendra Modi was allegedly burned by the BRS party members. In a video shared on Twitter, some people, identified as associated with the BRS were seen trying to shred the posters of BJP while the security personnel were seen pulling them away.

To bring the situation under control, Kakatiya University police took 11 persons into preventive custody and sent them to Dharmasagar Police Station.

Upon suspicion that Hanamkonda police commissionerate would be encircled by the BJP party workers, the police have reportedly tightened the security.

Bharatiya Janata Party’s Telangana unit chief Bandi Sanjay will hold a protest march against “unemployment” in the state on Saturday, the party said.

BJP Spokesperson NV Subhash told ANI, that the march is scheduled to start from Kakatiya University to Ambedkar Statue and will be joined by people from different walks of life.

Subash alleged that Telangana State Public Service Commission papers had been leaked by the people who are close to state minister KT Rama Rao and the chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao, claiming that 30 lakh job aspirants are waiting to get a job in the state.

“Their dreams have been shattered. We have approached the court and demanded immediate action to be taken against Rao. A sitting high court judge should be appointed to investigate the scam. Students who have appeared for the exam should be compensated,” the BJP leader said.

“There will be many intellectuals who are going to join the Nirudyoga March from Warangal. Job aspirants will also be joining,” he said, adding they have got police permission for the same.

The next leg of his march will be from Mehboobnagar on April 21 followed by Khammam, for which the dates are still being finalised, the BJP said.

“I will be doing 10 rallies across the state and then conclude with a mega rally in Hyderabad,” Bandi Sanjay told ANI earlier.

“There are three demands. IT Minister KT Rama Rao should resign following the paper leak. We demand an inquiry into this by a sitting High Court judge and compensation of Rs 1 lakh for all the students affected by the leak,” Sanjay further elaborated.
