Reorganization of districts is the reason for the extreme step
A 26-year-old man on Saturday self-immolated, to press the demand of merging his native mandal Nagireddypalli back into Medak district, which became part of the newly established Kamareddy district, in the state.
According to Police reports, V Raju, the deceased, poured kerosene on his body and set himself on fire on the busy Tank Bund Road this afternoon. While burning himself, Raju demanded that his mandal should remain a part of the Medak district. He was taken to Gandhi Hospital immediately but he died during the treatment.
A case has been registered in the matter. Telangana government had recently announced creating 21 new districts, taking the total number of districts to 31.
