Former BJP MLA NVSS Prabhakar spearheaded the protest and said, "There are six camps in Habsiguda area of Hyderabad where Dalits, tribals, minorities and backward class people are living since decades. Many children have died due to snake bites, no electricity, water and toilet facilities are here. We are protesting to restore these facilities."
