Hyderabad, February 17: Miscreants targeted the statue of Potti Sriramulu yet again in the city on Wednesday.

Miscreants, suspected to be pro-Telangana activists, damaged the statue of Potti Sriramulu at Vanasthalipuram leading to a mild tension in the area.

They left behind pamphlets near the damaged statue demanding apology from an Andhra MP for his comments against TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao.

Locals noticed the damage to the statue installed at the rythu bazar crossroads in Vanasthalipuram today morning and informed the police.

Pamphlets were pasted on the pedestal demanding Ongole MP M Srinivasulu Reddy tender an apology for his remarks against Chandrasekhar Rao.

The MP allegedly remarked that he would throw Chandrasekhar Rao out of the Parliament, if the latter raises separate Telangana issue in the Parliament.

The protesters also objected to the installation of Potti Sriramulu statue who was a supporter of unified Andhra and demanded that statues of Arya Vysya leaders from Telangana should only be installed in the region. Potti Sriramulu hails from Arya Vysya community.

Taking objection to the damage done to the statue, leaders or Arya Vysya Mahasabha held a protest sporting black flags.

Later, they staged a rasta roko at Vanasthalipuram forcing the police to arrest them.

The Mahasabha leaders said this was the second time that the miscreants targeted the statue.

Earlier when the Telangana movement was at its peak, the agitators blackened the face of the statue.
