A young Congress activist, Koti, tried to commit suicide by pouring petrol and setting himself ablaze, in the Poru Sabha, organised at Tirupati, demanding special status for Andhra Pradesh. He shouted slogans and suddenly tried to immolate himself. The other Congress activists quickly put out the flames and sent him to the hospital. By then, he had 70 per cent burns.
