Tension prevailed in Andhra Pradesh's city of Gudivada in Krishna district after the local YSRCP office was locked up by the building's owner, who is reported to be a strong TDP supporter on Sunday .
According to a report in the Times of India, the owner, G Suseela had lodged a complaint last week, alleging that the occupant, YSRCP MLA Kodali Nani was not paying the rent regularly for the last one year.
Following this, Suseela on Sunday visited the building with the police and locked it up alleging that the legislator had been threatening her of dire consequences.
"He promised to pay rent arrears and vacate the place after winning the elections. But never did it. He have been dragging the issue without vacating my property", the house owner told reporters.
A heated argument took place after the MLA arrived and the police took him into custody to prevent him from entering the office.
Addressing the media after being released on bail at the police station, Nani alleged that state chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu was behind his arrest, as he had objected to the removal of former CM Y S Rajasekhar Reddy’s painting from beside the painting of TDP founder and another former CM N T Rama Rao at his party office.
