Former MLC and educationist Chukka Ramaiah was placed under arrest early this morning, at his house at Vidyanagar, in Secunderabad, over fears that he will lead the 'Chalo Assembly,' programme, organised by the Telangana Democratic Front (TDF). Arrests are not going to curb people's anguish, he said. Telangana police are taking up stringent measures to stop the 'Chalo Assembly,' programme that is planned to protest against the encounter deaths in Warangal. All routes to the Assembly have been closed. Many leaders of the movement were rounded up.
