    Telangana State BJP president Kishan Reddy has ended his hunger strike after being offered lemon juice by senior BJP leader Prakash Javadekar. Reddy had started the 24-hour hunger strike on Wednesday morning at Indira Park in Hyderabad, accusing the state government of neglecting unemployed citizens during its nine-year rule.

    However, the police intervened and disbanded the protest on Wednesday evening due to time constraints. This led to a confrontation between the police and BJP workers, and Reddy fell down when he was taken into custody. He was later transported to the BJP office in Nampally.
