Minister’s remarks: Permission given for TDP to protest at Gouthu Latchanna statue today
The police officials gave permission for the TDP to stage a protest at the statue of freedom fighter Sardar Gouthu Latchanna at Palasa in Srikakulam district on Friday. However, the cops informed the TDP leaders that only 50 party functionaries will be allowed to attend the stir and the protest has to be concluded by 10:30 am.
AP TDP president Atchannaidu and other senior TDP leaders will be attending the protest against Minister S Appalaraju over his remarks about removing the statue of Gouthu Latchanna from the existing location and installing the same in government land. The minister alleged that the TDP had installed the statue in an unauthorised land with an ulterior motive to encroach it.
