Naidu gets a taste of Telangana anger in Nizamabad

Despite his efforts to buy peace with Telangana protagonists by asserting he was never against the formation of separate Telangana, TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu tasted the ire of T activists at Paridupet village of Machareddy mandal in Nizamabad district on Sunday while campaigning for party candidate Nittu Venugopal Rao in Kamareddy constituency.

Telangana sympathisers threw stones and slippers on his convoy when he was addressing the gathering in this small village. Trouble began when a group started raising slogans “Andhra Babu go back.” Police deployed in large numbers tried to disperse them, but members of another group hurled stones and slippers at Naidu’s vehicle.

TDP activists ran after the T-activists and the situation turned tense. Police lathicharged the agitators injuring four persons. Telangana sympathisers raised slogans against the TDP supremo again at Machareddy mandal headquarters when he went there to address a roadside meeting. In Bhiknoor, a farmer tried to obstruct his speech to protest the ‘false promises’ made to the farming community. (TOI)
