A huge war of words ensued between Tadipatri Circle Inspector (CI), Gorantla Madhav and Member of Parliament (MP), J.C.Diwakar Reddy, over the Prabhodananda ashram case. J.C. Diwakar blamed the police for the violent attacks by the ashram inmates on his men, killing one of them. He pressurised them to go into the ashram and evict the 'illegal' inmates. The CI warned J.C. yesterday against using unparliamentary language against the police and said that he would cut off the MP's tongue. Reacting sharply to this, J.C. dared him to do that.
