Chandrababu Naidu, son put under house arrest ahead of protest in Andhra Pradesh

Agencies

Amaravati, Sept 11: Telugu Desam Chief N Chandrababu Naidu and his son N Lokesh were placed under house arrest while several party leaders, including MLAs, were taken into custody on Wednesday in an bid to stop them from organising an agitation in Guntur district against alleged eviction of some villagers.

Simultaneously, some leaders of the ruling YSR Congress were also detained in Guntur, as they too gave a call for a similar programme as a counter to the TDP.

The TDP announced that Naidu would be observing a day-long fast inside his river front residence at Undavalli here in protest against the police action.

The TDP President wanted to lead a group of people belonging to Palnadu region of Guntur district to a village called Atmakuru. “I have planned to go to Atmakuru to drop the villagers who were driven out by YSRC men and police back in their village. This is not an agitation, but solidarity with the people who are victims of political factionism,” Naidu, who is the Leader of Opposition in the state assembly, said.

Alleging that the TDP was only seeking to create a scene using “paid artists,” the YSR Congress gave a call for ‘Chalo Atmakuru’, but police denied permission to both sides and clamped prohibitory orders under Section 144 Cr PC.

A large police force has been deployed in Atmakuru and also in Palnadu region to prevent untoward incidents.
