The youth brigade led by State Youth Congress President K Shivasena Reddy was arrested and taken to different police stations in the city. Hundreds of youth in different groups led by state vice president Pravallika, Siddipet district president Anksha Reddy, Vikarabad district president Satish, Bongir president Barre Naresh participated in the protest programme. The slogans such as KCR down-down rented the air.
