Protests by opposition parties in Andhra Pradesh continued on Wednesday to press for a rollback of the recent hike announced in electricity tariff.

Police arrested YSR Congress party leaders and activists when they tried to stop Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy’s convoy in Nellore. Raising slogans against the government, some protesters squatted on the road to stop the chief minister’s convoy, and clashed with the police, who forced them into waiting vehicles and cleared the way for the convoy.IANS
