Attack on convoy: Apologize to Amit Shah : BJP demands AP CM

Amit Shah visits TTD! Faces bitter experience from TDP leaders & Locals

The political hostility between BJP and the TDP went up another notch with the alleged attack on the convoy of BJP president Amit Shah at Alipiri last evening when the BJP leader was returning to Tirupati after darshan of Lord Venkateswara.

When he heard about the incident, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu said TDP leaders and workers should not violate the party's discipline and that such an incident should not happen again. Police tried to control the protestors, some of whom pelted stones, damaging window panes of one of the cars in the convoy.

TDP workers also protested against Shah in Tirupati. The state BJP leaders accused Chandrababu Naidu behind the TDP leaders' protest against Amit Shah's convoy at the Alipiri.

He reportedly warned his party cadre to not to resort to such extreme steps and urged his party leaders to not repeat such incidents. "Those funds too were taken back after crediting our account and hurting our self-respect", Naidu said while addressing a gathering at TDP's "Fight against Betrayal and Collusion Politics" - public meeting here.


Tirupati Urban Superintendent of Police Abhishek Mohanty told PTI that they were investigating the incident. "We have got only preliminary information and we are verifying all facts", he said.

Alipiri is located at the foothills of Tirumala. Earlier in the day, the BJP president could not escape the heat of the protests for Special Category Status (SCS), when he came to Tirumala hill shrine along with family.

TDP pulled out of the NDA in March citing "injustice" to Andhra Pradesh over the Centre's failure to fulfill promises made during the state's bifurcation.
