Prior to that, riding on a motorbike, they led a massive bike rally from the Speakers’ camp office at Manzur Nagar to the bus stand. The rally was participated by thousands of TRS workers and leaders.
Later addressing a public meeting, the Speaker said when he was elected as MLA, there were only 35 buses at Bhupalpally depot and the number of buses was now doubled. The public should travel in RTC buses to keep it in a financially healthy state and also it is the safe mode of transport, he said.
