Revanth wants CM to release Prisoners on mercy grounds

Congress leader A Revanth Reddy has alleged that Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao failed to stick to his word on release of prisoners on compassionate grounds on the occasion of Republic Day.

Revanth Reddy addressed a letter to the Chief Minister in this regard on Tuesday. He appealed to the Chief Minister to release prisoners (men and women) who completed imprisonment. He also reminded that previous governments released prisoners by issuing GOs 132, 1040, 413, 357, 580 during their respective regimes. He demanded that the Chief Minister release prisoners following the footsteps of his predecessors and give a new lease of life to the prisoners. (NSS)
