Sarpanch dumps TD for YSRC, finds his Car On Fire
VIJAYAWADA: Political rivalry between TD and YSR Congress appears to be the reason behind the burning of a car belonging to Nidamanuru sarpanch. The incident, which took place barely hours after the sarpanch joined the YSRC from the TD, created tension in the district.
Sarpanch Damacharla Koteswara Rao’s car, Which was parked in front of his residence, was set on fire by unidentified persons at around 2am. Mr. Koteswara Rao joined the YSRC in the presence of MLA R.K. Roja and former minister K. Parthasarathi in the “Gadapa Gadapaki Yaikapa” programme held on December 14 at Telaprolu in Unguturu mandal.
Neighbours who noticed the burning car allerted Mr Koteswara Rao who reported the incident to the police. The Sarpanch alleged that the car was set on fire by TD activists for dumping the party.
