Ongole, July 18:-
Prakasham district headquarters Ongole on Saturday reverberated with dharnas and counter dharnas staged by none other than the ruling party Congress and the opposition party the Telugu Desam.
While demanding an apology from the Congress MLA, D Venkateswara Rao for the incidents occurred in Karamchedu recently, the Telugu Desam staged a dharna in font of the Collectrate on Saturday. Proving that they do not lag behind, the Congress workers also staged a counter dharna demanding that the police should not lift the cases filed against the TD leaders recently in Karamchedu . This has just become a publicity stunt causing inconvenience to the public.
Sensing the delicacy of the situation, the police were kept on high alert to ward off any unpleasant situation.
