Telangana congress leaders were taken into custody as a preventive measure when the party members tried to march into the GHMC office demanding Rs 10,000 compensation for flood victims around the city. On Friday, congress leaders started protesting in front of the GHMC office alleging that they are not taking care of the flood victims in Hyderabad.
After congress leaders were stopped from entering the GHMC office, they sat on the road leading to the main gate of the office and protested. By the call of Congress, hundreds of people gathered at the Telangana Martyrs Memorial. Congress leader Anjan Kumar Yadav demanded the resignation of IT minister KTR as he failed to provide facilities during the extreme rainy season.

In Hyderabad, many colonies were filled with knee-dip water. The government has taken necessary precautions and also shifted many people's stay in the down stream area of the rivers into a safe place.
By the direction of congress president Revanth Reddy, many party workers have reached the flood-affected areas and provided help to the residents. Secunderabad DCC President Anil Kumar Yadav also confirmed that congress leaders had distributed food and also helped to clear fallen trees. The initiative of Congress at the time of flood and extreme rains is pleased by Telangana public.
