SANGAREDDY: Minister for Marketing C. Damodar Rajanarasimha alleged that the other partners in the JAC were trying to defame the ruling party.
Taking exception to the members of the local joint action committees (JACs) clashing with the ruling Congress party leaders at two places on Sunday, he said such incidents must be avoided.
Alladurg mandal parishad president Kasinath was reportedly manhandled by the agitators who participated in the Dhoom- Dham programme held at the mandal head quarters on Sunday. When some of the students criticised AICC president Sonia Gandhi and Marketing Minister C. Damodar Rajanarasimha, Mr. Kasinath objected following which he was manhandled by the agitators. Timely intervention by the police who whisked him away to the panchayat office saved him from facing the wrath of agitators.
The second incident was that of preventing Zilla Praishad chairman M. Balaiah from addressing Dhoom-Dham held at Tekmal. As the agitators did not allow him to speak, Balaiah abruptly ended his speech and went off. Irate over this, the Congress unit of the mandal announced that they would be withdrawing from the JAC as well as their resignations to the elected posts.
Mr. Damodar alleged that other parties -TRS and Telugu Desam- in the JAC were trying to defame the Congress party.
