TDP workers pelt stones at Amit Shah's convoy

The local TDP party workers were allegedly beaten by BJP leaders from Srikalahasti while the TDP men were silently protesting against Amit Shah for not denying Special Category Status to Andhra Pradesh.

On learning about the incident, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu criticised the workers and warned them that such acts of indiscipline would not to be tolerated.

When the TDP activists were trying to obstruct the convoy of Mr Shah, police remained mute spectators.

However, TDP local leaders under the leadership of MLA Sugunamma had been sitting on a protest against framing TDP party workers in the clash between BJP and TDP leaders following Amit Shah's visit. The group threw stones on his vehicle at Alipiri gate when Amit Shah was on his way to Tirupathi from airport along with his family. Meanwhile, the arrested TDP party workers have been released on bail. "It shows the criminal mentality of Naidu", the BJP leader said. "It is against our party discipline".

They were returning to the airport when the incident occurred.

The BJP president had arrived in Tirupati last night after wrapping up his over a month-long election campaign in Karnataka.
