Telugu Desam Chief N Chandrababu Naidu’s house arrest was on Thursday extended by another 24 hours.

A notice under Section 151 of the CrPC was pasted outside his house in Amravati.

Naidu and his son N Lokesh were placed under house arrest while several party leaders, including MLAs were taken into custody on Wednesday in a bid to stop them from organising an agitation in Guntur district against alleged eviction of some villagers.

Simultaneously, some leaders of the ruling YSR Congress were also detained in Guntur as they too gave a call for a similar programme as a counter to the TDP.

The TDP announced that Naidu would be observing a day-long fast inside his riverfront residence at Undavalli here in protest against the police action.

The TDP president wanted to lead a group of people belonging to Palnadu region of Guntur district to a village called Atmakuru.

Alleging that the TDP was only seeking to create a scene using "paid artists," the YSRC too gave a call for 'Chalo Atmakuru' but police denied permission to both sides and clamped prohibitory orders under Section 144 Cr PC.

A large police force has been deployed in Atmakuru and also in Palnadu region to prevent untoward incidents. With PTI inputs
