Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and legislator Kishan Reddy was arrested while he was on his way to Khammam Market Yard. The BJP leader has been protesting against Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government, for it's negligent attitude towards Mirchi farmers. Condemning statements of minister Harish Rao that the Central Minimum Support Price (MSP) for Mirchi is a millenium joke, Kishan Reddy demanded to know what the State government did for Mirchi farmers these two months. Fixing responsibility on State government to buy Mirchi at Central MSP of Rs. 5,000 a quintal, he said that not doing so is injustice to the farmers.
