A wordy duel took place between former union minister Sarvey Satyanarayana and Kukatpally MLA Madhavaram Krishna Rao today at an Ambedkar Jayanthi celebration at Kukatpally.
While participating in the celebration, Satyanarayana alleged that the District Collector was supporting the ruling party. Taking objection to that, the local MLA Krishna Rao asked Sarvey not to bring politics into an Ambedkar meeting.
With this, Congress activists raised slogans against the MLA. The MLA and TRS activists, too, then raised slogans against Sarvey, leading to tension.
Members of the groups heckled and pushed those of the other, and a heated argument took place between Sarvey and Krishna Rao. However, the police intervened and pacified both the groups.
