The situation at a municipal meeting turned ugly on Saturday at the town hall during the Kadapa Municipal Corporation general body meeting at Gudivada in AP, after YSRCP councillor reportedly attacked the municipal chairman with his slipper.

Recently, nearly ten YSRCP members, including Municipal Chairman Yalavarthi Srinivasa Rao, joined the Telugu Desam Party. In the meeting, they demanded seats allotted along with TDP corporators.

It was reported that YSRCP MLA Kodali Sri Venkateswara Rao (Nani) and his party councillors blocked the Srinivasa Rao to conduct the meeting.

In the chaos between the parties, TDP corporators allegedly broke some mikes and threw away the members’ name plates.

They also damaged the podium and picked up an argument with Kadapa Mayor K Suresh Babu, who belonged to the YSRCP, and tried to pull down the mike in front of him.

Soon the councillors of both the parties had a verbal argument, following which YSRCP councillor Ch Ravi Kanth slapped the civic chief on his face with a shoe.

To bring the situation under control, police had to step in and managed to separated TDP and YSRCP municipal councillors.
