ANANTAPUR: Two activists of the TDP attempted suicide at Nallamada in the district on Wednesday opposing the party’s proposal to give Puttaparthi Assembly ticket to K. Srikanth Reddy.

One tried to immolate himself and another scaled a cell phone tower and the two were arrested by the police later. The police, however, prevented the self-immolation bid and pursued the one who scaled cell tower to climb down. The two were arrested.
