AMARAVATI: Former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu said here on Wednesday that the incumbent state government cannot control him and other TDP leaders by putting them under house arrest.

Naidu and his son Nara Lokesh were put under preventive detention on Wednesday morning at a time they were about to leave for 'Chalo Atmakur' rally. However, police locked the main gate of the residence when the TDP chief attempted to leave for Atmakur for party's 'Chalo Atmakur' rally.
