AP state government has decided to withdraw about 1,400 cases registered against Telangana protesters. This was decided at a meeting chaired by CM Kiran Kumar Reddy and attended by chief secretary Pankaj Dwivedi, and DGP V Dinesh Reddy on Tuesday.
Apparently all these cases would be withdrawn before the commencement of the budget session of the state assembly on February 13.
It should be noted there that these cases pertain to the period from the beginning of the Telangana agitation in November 2009 till December 2010.
The announcement was made after a delegation of Telangana leaders called on him.
