Slamming the Hyderabad police for denying permission to Congress to hold a rally on its 135th foundation day, the Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president Uttam Kumar Reddy has called the city police commissioner Anjani Kumar a "puppet" of Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao (KCR). Reddy added that they will meet the governor over the issue. 

"Hyderabad Police Commissioner Anjani Kumar has become a puppet for RSS and KCR. We will meet the Governor and file a complaint against the Police Commissioner,” said Reddy.

Questioning over the police’s decision of allowing RSS to organise rally two days ago but denying permission to Congress, Reddy said, “The police have rejected permission for our peaceful rally but they gave permission to RSS for organising a rally two days ago and gave permission to AIMIM party for organising a public meeting.”
