This visit came as a surprise to the police in the city as they were not informed about the schedule of the Home Minister. Not only did it surprise the police, but also threw traffic out of gear near the Palace Grounds owing to a VIP visit.
Some wondered if it was right on part of the Home Minister to be part of the wedding considering it was a event organised by Janardhana Reddy who was in jail in connection with an illegal mining case.
"The minister however said he attended the function as an invitee and not as the Home Minister. However, the police say that they will have to follow protocol even if it is an unscheduled visit. The unplanned visit did cause a lot of inconvenience to public and us alike", said a senior police officer.
Other officials felt some amount of discomfort to see the Home Minister at the function. Some officials in the Special Investigation Team which is probing cases against Reddy felt that it could send out a wrong signal.
