TDP Protest: TDP ranks staged a large-scale protest against Ambedkar Konaseema district’s Amalapuram town CI for beating TDP worker. They asked to take strict action against the CI who kept the stalls on the road regardless of the rain. The ranks of TDP are alleging that the CI over-performed during the victory celebrations organized by the TDP leaders in Amalapuram. After TDP won two seats in the MLC election for graduates, a large police force came as fireworks were set off at the Amalapuram clock pillar centre. They tried to stop them. In this order, CI Durga Shekhar Reddy laid hands on a TDP activist. After learning about the matter, the ranks of TDP expressed their anger against the urban CI. Amalapuram town CI was asked to be immediately suspended on the road. In front of the town police station they raised slogans saying ‘CI down down’. After this, CI Durgasekhar Reddy, who backed down, finally apologized to the TDP workers.
"The CI doesn’t like Reddy who is new in Amalapuram. The CI, who is a YCP partisan, did not want the Telugu Desam Party to interfere, or he came to a TDP worker and slapped him on the cheek. Don’t wait until you apologize. There is something wrong with it. Is it a democracy or not? Everyone who wins celebrates. He wears whistles, wears balls, burns medicine. Not yesterday but the other day YCP shot the drug. YCP fired in the assembly local body elections. Then why didn’t this CI go and stop it. Then why didn’t CI strike. Did the CI come to Amalapuram to save YCP? Did he come to trouble the Telugu Desam party.. CI should apologize." – TDP ranks
