Suddenly, Chandrababu turned furious and challenged the person who was responsible for the stone-pelting to come in front of him and saying that ‘ hey cowards come to me… useless fellows …tholutheesta(skin you off) …idiots.. ‘.

He also questioned right over the campaign vehicle that were there any police in the meeting? , and he came down the dais and sat on the road for a protest along with TDP prominent leaders and Tirupati leaders.
