Eluru, Andhra Pradesh:
Telugu Desam Party chief Chandrababu Naidu and supporters on Thursday staged a sit-in protest after the police stopped him from visiting the Polavaram irrigation venture web site in Eluru district.
The police reportedly denied him permission to go to the positioning.
The altercation between the Andhra Pradesh Police and TDP supporters erupted after police stopped Chandrababu Naidu from getting into the Eluru district to have a glimpse of the continued works as part of the celebration’s marketing campaign, titled ‘Idhem Kharma Mana Rastraniki’, which was geared toward exposing the failures of the YSRCP authorities within the State.
After police tried to cease the protest the agitators blocked the street resulting in the Polavaram Project within the Eluru district.
The Polavaram venture is an under-construction multi-purpose irrigation National venture on the Godavari River within the West Godavari District and East Godavari District within the state.
