Amaravati: The suicide attempt of a TDP worker near Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu's house led to tension in the area.

TDP workers and members of the Balija community reached the residence of the TDP supremo in large numbers in protest against the likelihood of MLA Prabhakar Chowdary being renominated.

Members of the Balija community as also party workers threatened to resign in large numbers from the party as stated earlier by Rayalaseema Balija Mahasangham president Bellary Venkataramudu.

To stage a protest against the likelihood of Prabhakar Chodwary getting a party ticket, members of the Balija community gathered in large numbers and appealed to the TDP leadership against giving him a ticket.

They demanded that a member of the Balija community be given party ticket instead or Prabhakar Chowdary and also accused him of supressing the Balijas.

The large gathering raised slogans against him and a TDP worker attempted suicide by pouring petrol on himself. Police present on the scene went to his rescue and took him into custody.
