HYDERABAD: The busy Uppal crossroads came alive on Monday evening with activists of the ruling BRS participating in large numbers in a road show addressed by party working president K.T. Rama Rao.
The four lanes from Ramanthapur, Uppal, Hubsiguda and Chilkanagar connecting Uppal cross roads were blocked with activists as they assembled at the crossroads waving Rama Rao.
The crossroads turned pink with BRS flags and bunting. The recently inaugurated skywalk was also occupied by the BRS followers to listen to Rama Rao’s speech.
Before arriving at the Uppal junction, leaders wearing pink scarves and caps took out separate rallies from Hubsiguda, Chilkanagar and Ramanthapur from their areas and culminated at the meeting place.
Addressing the gathering, Rama Rao requested the people in Uppal constituency to vote for development and assured that the metro rail services would be extended to ECIL. From LB Nagar, Rama Rao, the metro services would be extended till Pedda Amberpet.
The police had a tough time regulating vehicular traffic as dais was put up at the main junction resulting in chaos.
A senior citizen, K Ramulamma, from Chilkanagar said she came to take part in the meeting voluntarily as she is a strong supporter of Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao who achieved separate Telangana.
