GUNTUR: Local leaders of Telugu Desam Party and YSR Congress Party clashed at Tadepalli, after police stopped the latter from carrying out a “cleansing act”, on the road leading to the Chief Minister’s residence at Undavalli.

Police said that the YSRCP leaders poured cow’s urine on the main road, an act which was objected to by local TDP leaders.

The YSRC leaders said that they were doing this to remove the bad omen caused by Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu, but the act seemed to have been orchestrated as a retaliatory gesture to a similar one by TDP leaders, when they sprayed the road leading to secretariat with turmeric water.

DSP, Mangalagiri, G. Ramajaneyulu said that police chased away both groups after denying permission to hold any form of protest on the main road.
