APPC chief forced to walk past protesters wearing black badges

NIZAMABAD: Telugu Desam Party activists held a novel protest at Sarampally in Kamareddy mandal when the Gandhi Santi Sandesh Yatra of the Pradesh Congress Committee chief, K. Keshava Rao, arrived at the village on Monday morning.

TDP activists led by the Telugu Yuvata leader, Raju, and the village sarpanch, Gangadhar, stood silently on the roadside holding high their party flags and wearing black badges.

Embarrassment to Rao

It caused embarrassment to Dr. Rao who was forced to walk past the protesters. It was attended among others by the Minister for Information and Public Relations, Mohammad Ali Shabbir.

The police threw a security cordon around the yatris when they were passing through the village located in extremist-infested zone.

Later, speaking to reporters, the TDP leaders observed that nothing would come out of the yatra when the State was reeling under severe drought.
