Warangal: Tension prevailed at Telugu Desam Party district office here on Tuesday as the members of District Bar Association attempted to storm into the office. A large group of advocates, who boycotted their duties, took out a protest rally to the TDP office located on Hunter Road in Hanamkonda condemning the alleged U-turn taken by the party chief N Chandrababu Naidu on Telangana issue. The incident took place when the TDP district president A Baswa Reddy was holding a press conference along with the party MLA Seetakka and party leader Ashok Kumar. The agitators tried to barge into the office but were prevented by the police. Later, the lawyers staged a demonstration in front of the TDP office and burnt the effigy of Chandrababu Naidu and raised slogans against him.
Speaking to the newsmen, the Bar Association leaders Ambarish, M Sahodar Reddy, T Janardhan Goud and others condemned the ‘Atmagourava’ yatra that was launched on September 1 by the TDP chief. The bus yatra was taken up in support of Seemandhra agitation and was against the interests of Telangana, he said. By taking up bus yatra, Naidu has proved his anti-Telangana attitude. ‘There will be no place for TDP in Telangana anymore. The statues of all the Seemandhra leaders would be removed in Telangana’ said Sahodar Reddy.
Meanwhile, the TDP district president Baswa Reddy speaking press persons clarified that Naidu was not against Telangana. The party was still standing by the letter given to Pranab Mukherji committee expressing support to statehood cause.
Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and other political parties were conducting a bad campaign against the TDP with an intention to malign the party’s reputation among the people in the region. The bus yatra was aimed to seeking justice to Seemandhra and was not against Telangana issue, he asserted. The TDP leader condemned the forceful attack by the Distsrict Bar Association members on the party office.
