Nizamabad: High drama was witnessed on Friday during the ‘Amaraveerula Spurthi Yatra’ taken up by the TJAC Chairman, Prof M Kodandaram in both Kamareddy and Nizamabad districts, with the TRS activists and farmers blocking the Yatra at Baswapur of Bhiknoor mandal in Kamareddy district. He was greeted with ‘go back’ slogans.

Both the activists and farmers accused Kodandaram of aligning himself with the opponents of the TRS government while the Chief Minister, K Chandrashekar Rao, has been striving to develop the State. They alleged that the TJAC chief was seeking to stall the development.

The police dispersed the crowd which led to tension for some time. The TRS leaders have vandalized the tent where Kodandaram was supposed to give speech. They staged protests with placards.

Following the tense situation in Kamareddy, the police prevented the convoy of the TJAC chief at Bhiknoor. Kodandaram went to the police station to talk with them, who locked the gates to stop him from
going outside.

The TJAC activists and students staged a protest at the police station. Heated arguments took place between the police and the activists. When the situation turned tense, the police tried to shift the professor in a jeep to Hyderabad.

The TJAC activists and students tried to stop the jeep which lead to high tension. Several activists were injured in the melee. The jeep ran over a student resulting in serious injuries.

Spontaneous protests were held in Nizamabad, Banswada and Yellareddy by Left parties activists and students against the police action. Despite the opposition from locals and other activists, Prof Kodandaram said that the yatra will continue.
