Peddapalli TDP workers destroy party flags

By Our Staff Reporter

KARIMNAGAR, MARCH 25. Telugu Desam Party activists and supporters of former Peddapalli TDP legislator, B Rajamallu, destroyed party's flag posts in Peddapalli, Sultanabad, Eligaid and Odela mandals, protesting against the allocation of Peddapalli Assembly seat to the BJP candidate.

Irked over the TDP high command's decision allocating the Peddapalli Assembly segment to the BJP, the TDP rank and file including representatives of local bodies and others went berserk and destroyed the TDP flag posts in several villages in Peddapalli, Sultanabad, Eligaid and Odela mandals. They also removed the TDP flags at party offices in the segment and destroyed the flags. In Sultanabad mandal, the local ZPTC member, Ramesh tried to immolate himself by dousing with kerosene.

However, timely intervention by the locals averted the incident. The TDP leaders staged a rasta roko on the busy Sultanabad road and Rajamallu's supporters urged him to contest as an independent. Several TDP leaders including womenfolk expressed anger over the TDP's decision to allocate Peddapalli constituency to the BJP.
