To highlight the drinking water problem, women with empty pitchers staged a protest in the meeting attended by Hindupur TDP MLA Balakrishna at Chilamathur mandal in Anantapur district. The mandal falls under the Hindupur Assembly constituency. Circle Inspector Venkateswarlu took pitchers from women and asked them to go away. But, some more women with empty pitchers tried to disrupt the speech of Balakrishna. In the melee, Balakrishna has continued his speech when police personnel were sending away women from the venue.
