Supporters of JanaSena Party chief and actor Pawan Kalyan raised slogans outside Andhra Pradesh’s Vishakhapatnam Airport on Saturday, as he arrived in the city. They briefly protested against YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) leaders Roja and Jogi Ramesh, and TTD Chairman YV Subba Reddy. They spoke up against the proposal of three capitals for Andhra Pradesh, and were soon dispersed by the Police.
Security had been amped up ahead of Pawan Kalyan’s arrival in Vishakhapatnam, as some chaos was foreseen. Earlier today, YSCRCP organised a massive rally in the city as a show of strength in support of the 3 capitals for Andhra Pradesh.
