Differences in city Congress to the fore

By Our Special Correspondent

VIJAYAWADA, NOV. 23. The differences among various groups within the city Congress came to the fore again on Tuesday morning. Enraged over the letter written by the Vijayawada MP, Lagadapati Rajagopal's letter to the Chief Minister, Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, on the irrigation projects, a group of partymen led by the former APCC member, Mullapudi Nataraj, carrying an effigy of the MP was proceeding towards the Registrar's office in Gandhinagar to stage a protest.

They were, however, obstructed at New India Hotel Centre by supporters of Mr. Rajagopal led by the city Youth Congress president, Baditha Shankar.

Heated exchanges ensued between them even as supporters of Mr. Rajagopal managed to damage the effigy brought by the rival group. Mr. Nataraj's group, however, burnt another effigy that was kept ready raising slogans against Mr. Rajagopal who, they said, was "acting like a TDP agent." The situation appeared to take a serious turn when the police rushed to the spot and dispersed the groups.

Speaking to reporters later, Mr. Nataraj alleged that following `instructions' from Mr. Rajagopal, a group tried to attack him.
