The supporters of Telugu Desam led by Somisetty Venkateswarlu and publicity secretary J. Tirupal Babu protested against the demolition of the NTR statue by miscreants at Alwal on Friday.

The TDP leaders condemned the incident saying it was an insult to the sections which worshipped NTR. They said NTR created history in the world by capturing power within nine months of launching the party.

He introduced many revolutionary steps by giving quota for women and empowering the backward classes.

All these sections would get hurt if his symbols were targeted. The protesters staged a dharna at the statue of NTR at the Collectorate.
