Lagadapati Rajagopal who was arrested in the evening following his "Dharna" in the LB Stadium was released at around 11:30 PM night time. He was kept in the Falak Nama police station since his arrest and was released at around 11:30. However the police had tough time in controlling crowds who came in his support. Even a few pro Telangana activists too came there. But both the groups were dispersed by the police effectively. Amid much security he was shifted to his house in Jubilee Hills.
Right now he is in his house with heavy security to his house. With today's incident Lagadapati has become a household name in the Andhra Pradesh. While he was successful in creating a name for himself the TRS leaders are seething with anger towards him. He was the first major leader to resign from his MP seat which were followed by hundreds of such resignations in the Andhra and the Telangana regions.
Even when he was arrested this morning in Shamshabad airport, his supporters came in good numbers chanting slogans like "Andhra Tiger" etc. Well one must admit that he has created his own space for himself in the Congress party.
