Indian men scale a billboard scaffold in political protest

Protesters in the Indian city of Hyderabad climbed a large structure in protest of their favoured political representative being denied a chance of running.

Shot last Tuesday (November 13) in the central district of Khairatabad, demonstrators can be seen venting their frustration from a hoarding they had scaled earlier.

Moments before this police charged into the protesting mob on the ground, injuring many, including the party leader himself, Manne Goverdhan Reddy.

Reddy had held a protest at Telangana Bhavan demanding Khairatabad ticket for the local office.

Reddy's party, TRS (Telangana Rashtra Samithi), removed the ticket indefinitely as there were fears it could cause more problems within the party.
