Senthil Kumar, while addressing YSRC’s Janagraha Deeksha in Kuppam on Thursday, allegedly used abusive language against Naidu and went to the extent of saying that he would throw a bomb at the former chief minister’s car when he comes to Kuppam.
According to information, the TD leaders, who took serious objections to Senthil’s comments, had planned to reach the police station in a rally and complain against him. In a counter-attack, YSRC cadre also took out a rally, demanding Naidu to tender an apology for allowing his party leaders to use derogatory language against Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy.
A scuffle broke out between the two factions after what began as arguments. When Kuppam police tried to pacify the two factions, a YSRC leader reportedly pushed circle inspector Sadik Ali.
