Disputes, if any, subject to jurisdiction in New Delhi

New Delhi: Telugu Desam (TDP) Chief N Chandrababu Naidu and his son Nara Lokesh were placed under house arrest while several party leaders, including MLAs were taken into custody on Wednesday in a bid to stop them from organising an agitation in Guntur district against alleged eviction of some villagers.

Simultaneously, some leaders of the ruling YSR Congress were also detained in Guntur as they too gave a call for a similar programme as a counter to the Telugu Desam Party (TDP). The TDP announced that Chandrababu Naidu would be observing a day-long fast inside his riverfront residence at Undavalli here in protest against the police action. The president of the TDP wanted to lead a group of people belonging to Palnadu region of Guntur district to a village called Atmakuru.

“I have planned to go to Atmakuru to drop the villagerswho were driven out by YSRC men and police back in their village. This is not an agitation but solidarity with the people who are victims of political factionism,” Chandrababu Naidu, who is the leader of opposition in the state assembly, said.

Alleging that the TDP was only seeking to create a scene using “paid artists,” the YSRC too gave a call for ‘Chalo Atmakuru’ but the Andhra Pradesh police denied permission to both sides and clamped prohibitory orders under Section 144 Cr PC. A large police force has been deployed in Atmakuru and also in Palnadu region to prevent any untoward incidents.

Earlier on Wednesday, it was reported that the Andhra Pradesh police had put several TDP leaders under house arrest in view of the party’s call for the ‘Chalo Atmakur’ rally, alleging political violence by the YSR Congress Party (YSRCP). Section 144 has been imposed in Narasaraopeta, Sattenapalle, Palnadu and Gurajala. The police said that TDP had no permission for the rally.
