Telugu Desam Party (TDP) supremo and former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu was kept under house arrest on Wednesday (September 11) amid the party's call for ‘Chalo Atmakur’ rally. His son Nara Lokesh and several other TDP leaders have also been kept under house arrest.
Several TDP members, who'd gathered outside Naidu's residence to protest against the detention, clashed with police. AP police clamped prohibitive orders all across the state. 'I have planned to go to Atmakuru to drop the villagers who were driven out by YSRC men and police back in their village. This is not an agitation but solidarity with the people who are victims of political factionism, Naidu, who is the Leader of Opposition in the State Assembly, said.
Alleging that the TDP was only seeking to create a scene using 'paid artists', the YSRC too gave a call for 'Chalo Atmakuru' but police denied permission to both sides and clamped prohibitory orders under Section 144 Cr PC.
