After house arrest, Babu begins 12 hours fast


After being placed under house arrest along with son Nara Lokesh, Telugu Desam President and former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister has started his 12- hours fast to protest against the undemocratic ways of the ruling YSRCP. 

The police fearing a law and order problem placed the TDP leaders under house arrest earlier today hence foiling their 'Chalo Atmakur' rally. The TDP has alleged that a number of its party workers have been killed in multiple attacks since the elections in May and that a number of the workers belonged to the Palnadu region

Earlier this morning, the police did not allow Naidu to come out of his house at Undavalli in Amaravati as he was about to leave for the rally. Lokesh was also stopped from leaving his residence following which he was seen arguing with the police, demanding the documents which authorised them to stop him. 

With the growing support to the 'Chalo Atmakur' protest rally, Andhra Pradesh DGP Gautam Sawan as a preventive measure released a statement which prohibited any kind of public gathering in the region. He further announced that Section 144 was implemented in the area anyone violating that will be facing legal consequences.

Foreseeing the arrest situation, Naidu asked the TDP cadre to protest on the spot wherever detained. TDP MP Kesineni Nani, senior leader Buddha Venkanna and a number of other leaders and party workers have been detained. 

Meanwhile, Andhra Pradesh Home Minister Mekathoti Sucharitha has dubbed the ongoing tensions as 'drama' and called the protesters as 'paid artists'.
