Protests on in Andhra,Cong MLAs try to calm supporters

Protests continued in Andhra and Rayalaseema on Saturday with sporadic incidents of violence.

Protests continued in Andhra and Rayalaseema on Saturday with sporadic incidents of violence. Protesters targeted public and private buses,damaged statues of national leaders,took out rallies and staged demonstrations in Guntur,East and West Godavari,Prakasam,Kurnool,Chittor,Anantapur and Kadapa districts.

A number of Congress MLAs,who had come to Hyderabad on Friday to resign in protest,returned to their constituencies to reason with supporters that their protests wont achieve anything as the bifurcation cannot be rolled back.

“When we were in Hyderabad Friday,we looked at how things were developing in the Congress in New Delhi and the statements made by our leaders. Nothing can be done now. Although,I assured others that I too would resign,I feel it is better to go back and explain things to people back home. I think that is what is on everyone’s mind,” a Congress legislator from Vizag said on Saturday.
