Tension prevailed as two TDP sympathisers were beaten up for allegedly creating nuisance at a feast hosted YSRCP MLA K. Nagarjuna Reddy at his native Kondepalli village, near Markapur, on Sunday.
On an invitation extended by the MLA, a majority of the villagers, including 25-year-old Suresh and his mother Suvartamma turned up for lunch even as a few owing their allegiance to the TDP kept away, the Markapur rural police said.
Identifying them as TDP sympathisers, a group of YSRCP activists asked them to leave. After a wordy duel, the ruling party activists allegedly caused bleeding injuries to Suresh. His mother, who went to her son’s rescue, was also hurt. They were rushed to a hospital in Markapur. A police party rushed to the village and restored order.
