YSR Congress chief Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy was Monday detained along with 19 supporters while they were marching towards parliament protesting the centre’s decision to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh, police said.
Earlier, while staging a protest, Jagan said the chaos in the Lok Sabha was engineered by the Congress party. “Congress engineered the chaos in the house,” he alleged, noting that the person who used pepper spray in parliament – Lagadapati Rajagopal – was a Congress MP.
“Of the MPs suspended, majority of them belong to Seemandhra. Now there is nobody to protest in the house. So, the Congress party plotted it. The only way they could do this is create a scene,” he added. Jagan was also among the 16 members suspended from the Lok Sabha by the speaker.
