The TDP and YSRC are once again back in their old game of protests and demonstrations against each other. As usual the rulers always used official machinery to contain the opposition.This time the TDP is at the receiving end and YSRC is seen as oppressor.TDP Chief and ex CM Chandrababu Naidu and several leaders of his Telugu Desam Party (TDP) have been put under house arrest to prevent them from participating in a massive protest against the Jagan government for attacks on TDP workers.

Large gatherings are banned by the police in Palnadu region, seen to be worst affected by violence fuelled by political rivalries allegedly by YS Jagan Mohan Reddy men.

TDP alleged eight TDP workers have been killed and several face threats from Mr Reddy’s party that completed 100 days in power last week.”It’s a dark day for democracy,” said Mr Naidu, who wanted to sit on a fast till 8 pm today. Some of the TDP leaders who are under house arrest are Devineni Avinash, Kesineni Nani and Bhooma Akhilapriya.

In turn, the ruling party has also planned a counter-march today in protest against alleged violence unleashed by the previous government led by Naidu. The YSRCP has asked people in Atmakur district and Palnadu region, seen to be worst affected by violence, to come forward and share their complaints. The YSRCP alleged its leaders, workers and supporters were driven out from their villages and false cases were filed against them.Both the former chief minister and his ruling rival had given a call for a march today to Atmakur, 240 km from Amaravati.

Chandrababu Naidu’s son Nara Lokesh was detained by the Andhra and stopped from participating in protests near his home in Undavalli.According to the TDP, this has resulted in deaths of eight of its party workers, most of them in the violence-prone Palnadu region of Guntur district. Some 500 party activists have been attacked as well, says the TDP.
