Tension gripped the Addanki bus stand centre here for some time on Saturday during the protest by activists of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) demanding the resignation of YSR Congress Party MP Gorantla Madhav in the wake of his obscene video going viral on the social media.
Amid stepped-up security by the police, the activists, including a large number of women, came in a procession from the TDP office to the statue of party founder NTR on the arterial Kurnool road shouting slogans against Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy for not taking any action against the MP, police said.
The activists tried to set ablaze the effigies of the MP, State Irrigation Minister Ambatti Ram Babu and former Minister Muthamsetti Srinivasa Rao. A high drama was witnessed as the police swung into action and foiled their attempts to burn effigies. Police had a tough time in dispersing the protestors from the spot.
