Chappals hurled at VH's vehicle in Tirumala - Sakshi Post

Rajya Sabha member V. Hanumantha Rao faced the ire of Samaikyandhra activsits in Tirumala on Saturday.
Fortunately, VH was allowed to have a peaceful darshan of Lord Balaji. But VH had to put up with protestors upon reaching Alipiri during  his return journey. The protestors obstructed VH's vehicle and raised 'Jai Samaikyandhra' slogans. When the police foiled their attempts, the activists squatted on the road to prevent the car from moving. Police resorted to mild lathicharge to disperse the mob.
VH sparked a row with his provocative statements that government employees must leave Hyderabad and Seemandhra leaders are behind APNGOs' protests.
Miffed with VH's comments on Telangana, irate activists threw chappals on his vehicle. Few activists even hurled stones, damaging the windowpanes.. VH was in Tirumala along with his family members. He was on his way to Renigunta to board a flight to Hyderabad. He managed to leave the place under tight security.
The protestors asked VH if he was representing Andhra or Telanagana state in the Rajya Sabha.
Soon as news broke, several politicians from Telangana region condemned the attack. (Also Read)
