MACHILIPATNAM: The YSR Congress supporters on Tuesday allegedly vandalised a plaque inside the Krishna Zilla Parishad function hall here, unveiled by former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu.
According to the official report, the vandalisation of the plaque created tension between the TDA and YSRC workers, necessitating the deployment of police to avert the clash between the rival party workers.
“The plaque was unveiled by Naidu in February to mark the inauguration of the works on the deepwater port works in port town Machilipatnam, the headquarters of Krishna district”, officials said.
As per the report, the YSRC supporters were allegedly opposed to the installation of the plaque as it did not carry the names of the newly-elected YSRC leaders.
Krishna Zilla Parishad Chief Executive Officer Sheik Salaam lodged a complaint and sought legal action for demolishing the public property.
Machilipatnam Deputy Superintendent of Police Mehaboob Basha said a case has been registered and the investigation is on.
