Local Congress MP Lagadapati Rajagopal made another vain bid to meet Telugu Desam chief Nara Chandrababu Naidu during his Vastunna Meekosam Yatra in the city on Sunday seeking latter’s support for Samaikyandhra.
The MP had attempted to meet Naidu when Naidu’s yatra entered Krishna district on Jan 21. While Naidu was taking rest at New Rajarajeswaripet, Rajagopal led a Samaikyandhra rally on the BRTS road. Sensing the MP’s move to cross the Budameru bridge to go to New Rajarajeswaripet, TD activists, led by Bonda Uma Maheswara Rao, obstructed the MP and Samaikyandhra students. They said they would not allow Vellampalli Srinivasa Rao to meet Naidu.
Cops entered the scene and took some TDP activists into custody to prevent trouble. They urged the MP to give up his move to meet Naidu.
