YSRC supporters vandalise plaque unveiled by former CM Naidu

Machilipatnam: Tension prevailed between Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and YSR Congress workers in Andhra Pradesh after a plaque that was unveiled by former Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu inside the Krishna Zilla Parishad function hall was allegedly damaged by YSRC supporters.

A complaint was lodged by the Krishna Zilla Parishad Chief Executive Officer Sheik Salaam. He sought legal action for demolishing the public property. A case has been registered and the investigation is on. Following this, police were deployed to avert any clash between the two party workers.

According to media reports, Naidu unveiled the plaque in February to mark the inauguration of the works on the deep water port works in port town Machilipatnam, which is the headquarters of Krishna district.

The plaque did not carry the names of the newly-elected YSRC leaders and so the YSRC supporters were allegedly opposed to its installation.

MLC and TDP district president Batchula Arjunudu and Zilla Parishad chairperson Gadde Anuradha visited the site and expressed shock over the incident.
