Chaos at TDP meeting

By Our Staff Reporter

KHAMMAM, JAN. 21. It was a virtual free for all at the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) meeting of the Palair Assembly constituency unit on Wednesday.

The women workers walked away with the Optical Mark Reading (OMR) sheets defying the constituency leaders who insisted that they fill them at the venue.

Despite attempts by the organisers to collect the sheets back, the workers refused to part with them, which resulted in the melee. The meeting was immediately suspended due to the confrontation.

The TDP district unit chief, M. Srinivasa Rao, convened an emergency meeting of the constituency-level leaders on Thursday at the district unit office. He said action would be initiated against those responsible for what had happened at the meeting.

According to reports, two groups of the party mobilised supporters for the meeting held at Nelakondapalli village in a big way. Some leaders reportedly wanted them to fill the questionnaire in their presence. But the workers did not oblige.

The party leader, Venkata Veeraiah, the former MLA, K. V. Ratham, and the party observer, Achaiah, were among those present at the meeting.
