Telugu Desam and Congress party workers indulged in fisticuffs at a temple in Kuppam manda, over distribution of houses. Some 1,400 houses were sanctioned at Kuppam mandal, in Chittoor district. However, some Congress activists charged that the houses were given only to some government employees and Telugu Desam workers. Local Congress leader, Suresh Babu, called for a meeting, at Sri Prasanna Tirupati Gangamma temple. When they went in, some Telugu Desam workers attacked them, leading to fisticuffs. Police found it a tough task to disperse the crowds. Four persons, including Suresh Babu were hurt in the attack.
