bandaru-manankaliUnion Minister of State for Labour and Employment Bandaru Dattatreya’s vehicle was stopped on his Mahankali Temple on the occasion of Bonalu festivities on July 9.

Dattatreya was asked to go on foot to the temple in the heavy rush by the local police at the post and this led to criticism. BJP state president Kishan Reddy wrote a letter to Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao.

Reacting on this, Hyderabad City Police Commissioner M Mahender Reddy has ordered an inquiry into the incident regarding disrespectful attitude shown towards Dattatreya by police authorities during Bonalu celebration and the circumstances in which Dattatreya’s vehicle was stopped.
