Hyderabad: During the Ujjaini Mahankali Bonalu Jatara last evening, Jogini Syamala lambasted the government and police over poor arrangements for Bonalu and said that they had failed to provide proper facilities for devotees.
She said that devotees had to suffer a lot due to lack of coordination. Angered by the lack of facilities, she cursed saying that the Telangana government would fall very soon.
Reacting to the words of Jogini Syamala, minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav said he was told that Jogini Syamala faced little difficulty near the temple during Bonalu. Speaking to media after today's Rangam programme, the minister accepted that devotees had to face minor problems. Jogini Syamala should understand that when there are lakhs of devotees such small lapses happens.
Talasani brushed aside Syamala's comment that the state government would fall and said her comments against the government was not correct. He went on to say that Bonalu was a huge success with unprecedented number of devotees and even foreigners participating in the celebrations.

Giving a political twist to the entire episode, former Congress MP V Hanumantha Rao came in support of Jogini Syamala and said her words would turn true. He predicted that the dictatorial governance of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao would come to an end.
If people revolt against the present TRS government, Congress party would support, he added.
