Harish Rao bids sayonara to Japan visit
Major Irrigation Minister T. Harish Rao on Monday canceled his visit to Japan along with a delegation of the ministry officials following the intensification of the agitation by the Political JAC and the opposition parties against the Mallannsagar project.
The Japan trip was canceled a few hours before the departure of the delegation. A GO was also issued by the government about the visit.
Postponing the visit, Harish Rao came before the media to flay the opposition parties.
The situation on the ground in Medak following Sunday's police lathicharge on opposition padayatra was taken seriously by the opposition parties. There was also firing in the air on Sunday to quell the opposition rally at Sangareddy, the bastion of the TRS leaders.
The opposition is accusing the government that peaceful demonstrators were unnecessarily cane charged. After that they have intensified the agitation.
