A day after a senior TDP leader surrendered after firing his revolver in the air at a Vijayawada club, another party leader is in the dock.
TDP MLC Annam Satish Prabhakar along with party workers allegedly created a ruckus and thrashed tourism department employees at the Haritha Resorts in Suryalanka beach late on Friday night.
The MLC was reported to be celebrating film producer Koratala Sandeep's birthday.
Haritha Resorts is run by the Andhra Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (APTDC).
"He called APTDC resort deputy manager Srinivas Rao in an inebriated condition and started abusing him because he was not satisfied with the arrangements. He slapped Srinivas thrice on his face and later thrashed him," TOI quotes a source as saying.
The MLC also allegedly beat up the people who tried to stop him.
The manager also alleged that the police did not take his complaint till Saturday, due to political pressure.
The MLC and his followers on their part, claimed that they had booked A/C rooms at the resorts and repeated pleas for repairing a defunct A/C were not attended to.
The issue even reached Andhra Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, who reportedly sought an explanation from his party colleagues on the incident.
This is the second such embarrassing incident for the TDP.
On Thursday afternoon, TDP leader Raavi Venkateswara Rao whipped out a revolver and went on to fire two shots in the air at the Gudivada club in Vijayawada.
Rao was reported to be heavily inebriated and fired the weapon at around 2.30pm, following which the chaos prevailed.
According to reports, Rao had an argument with the club organisers and fired two rounds in the air. No one was injured in the incident.
The police soon arrived at the spot, and took eyewitness statements.
Rao later surrendered.
