V C Sajjanar, Commissioner of Police Cyberabad said, “Any obstruction created for the drivers who have been hired by the government on temporary basis will be booked for obstructing the Government servants from discharging their duty. Firm action will be taken for any such offence. As such no one would be allowed to perform dharna or stage protest, without any prior permission from the police. This is only to make sure that the harmony in the local areas is maintained.”

Adding to this, Mahesh Bhagwat, Commissioner of Police Rachakonda said, “People should resort to agitating in democratic way. Anyone resorting to undemocratic means will be punished as per law.” The warnings came after videos surfaced on social media showing some of the RTC staff who have been removed from duties are indulging in taking law into their hands by stopping the buses and assaulting the hired drivers.
