BJP national general secretary Arun Singh has accused Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy of playing appeasement politics in the State.
The BJP said the mob chased down Srikanth Reddy and when he went to the police station, they even attacked the police station, injuring an SI and two constables.
The BJP chief said that while the Atmakur police maintained 150 people were involved in the attack, the Director-General of Police claimed that 50 people were involved.
In the protest in Ongole, BJP state chief Somu Veerraju alleged that there was an attempt to eliminate Srikanth Reddy and the local YSRC MLA had supported the other group.
Somu and other BJP leaders performed the ritual at the Vijayawada temple to pray for the safety of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, following the security breach in Punjab on January 5.
Speaking to the media in Bapatla, Veerraju said though the Centre is funding a major part of the housing scheme, the YSRC government named it after Jagan Mohan Reddy.
If the government fails to rename the hospital, the BJP would launch an agitation, Veerraju said.
Coming down heavily on Somu for his promise to provide cheap liquor at Rs 50, YSRC leader Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy sought to know if reducing the prices of liquor was the national policy of BJP.

BJP State president Somu Veerraju on Monday demanded that the government release the incentive to the villages which elected their sarpanches unanimously.
Speaking to the media at the state party office in Vijayawada on Tuesday, Somu claimed that the CM lied in the Assembly.
The party has also found fault with the ruling party on the capital issue claiming that no minister even tried to hold talks for resolution even as the farmers have been protesting for over 700 days.
Somu Veerraju said Amaravati construction would be done by the BJP and added that the party has always been in support of the farmers.
As opposition parties mounted pressure on his government demanding a cut in VAT, the Jagan government put out full-page advertisements in several newspapers to spell out its stand on the issue.
In Eluru, Somu inspected the APTIDCO houses, which were complete but renained unalloted in the last two years.
