Congress MP Rahul Gandhi will be visiting Telangana on May 6 and 7. The state unit of the Congress is making preparations for a grand meeting of around 5 lakh supporters. Rahul was also scheduled to visit Osmania University in Hyderabad. However, the administration of the University has denied permission to Rahul on the ground that political meetings are not allowed on the campus.
According to the Congress, the Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar and his party the Telangana Rashtra Samithi is the cause for denying Rahul permission to meet students of Osmania University. They said that the proposed meeting was completely ”apolitical” and that Rahul wanted to meet students only to find out about their problems and not to address any public meeting.
Some NSUI and youth Congress youth activists who held protests at the University were arrested by the police.
