I wanted to know why YSRC workers were not arrested as TDP workers were arrested on charges of group clashes with YSRC. I sought to know why the main accused YSRC worker was roaming free. I never detained them,” he clarified. “Is questioning detention? I will never keep quite if injustice was meted out to TDP workers,” he asserted.
