Police rushed to the spot and dispersed the crowd
Jagitial: Mild tension prevailed in Gollapalli mandal on Wednesday when activists of BJP and TRS clashed with each other during Welfare Minister Koppula Eashwar’s visit.
BJP leaders put up a flexie banner at the bus stand highlighting the developmental programmes implemented by the Union government. Officials removed the flexie and this enraged BJP workers who staged a dharna at the MPDO office on Tuesday.
On coming to know about the tour programme of the Minister, local BJP leaders decided to register their protest at a meeting scheduled in Aryavyshya Bhavan in Gollapalli. TRS workers prevented the BJP activists from entering the venue, and this led to a minor clash between the two groups.
Police rushed to the spot and dispersed the clashing groups. Some BJP leaders were taken into custody and shifted to the police station.
