Andhra Pradesh assembly speaker Kodela Sivaprasad has been attacked by YSRCP workers at Sathenapalli. In this incident Kodela fell on the ground unconscious.
Being a contestant, Kodela visited Rajupalem mandal, Inimetla village. This village has dominance of YSRCP. To check the polling process, Kodela went inside a polling booth and reportedly closed the doors. YSRCP workers staged a protest on Kodela's action and gathered in large number outside the booth. They also raised slogans against Kodela. Angered by this, violence has erupted.
YSRCP workers even damaged Kodela's car and there is a tensed situation in the village. With not enough number of police personnel in the village, the situation completely slipped out of hand. The election officials have stopped the polling and will resume once police provide additional security.
