Guntur: Chaos broke out at the council meeting in Tenali municipality on Monday when Telugu Desam councillors attacked each other.
Gummadi Ramesh, 3rd ward councillor, and Pasupulati Trimurtulu, of the 12th ward, hurled blows at each other in full view of other elected representatives of the council.

The problem started when Mr Ramesh and Mr Trimurtulu differed on recording the details of the minutes of the meeting. Mr Ramesh said that every issue which was debated in the council should be written in the minutes book to make things transparent while Mr Trimurtulu felt that every trivial issue need not be written in the book.
The verbal argument intensified and the duo began using unparliamentary language against each other. In no time, tempers ran high and Mr Ramesh attacked Mr Trimurtulu and the latter too replied in the same.
The duo exchanged blows and Mr Ramesh even tore the shirt of Mr Trimurtulu in the council hall. Such unruly behaviour degrades the stature of the councillors and also tarnish the administrative system, the Opposition leaders said.
Meanwhile, the TD leaders felt severe action would be taken against both the councillors by the party high command. Local MLA D. Narendra was not available to comment on the episode....
