Upset over the violence that took place over the visit of Congress MP Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy to the district, a ruling party MLA on Friday attempted suicide in front of the media.
Congress legislator Konda Surekha, a known YSR loyalist, tried to consume some tablets at Mahabubabad in the district but was prevented by policemen and others. She was immediately rushed to a hospital.
Surekha alleged that TRS leaders were responsible for the violence as they did not allow Jagan to undertake a personal tour to the district to console the families of those who allegedly committed suicide following the death of his father and late chief minister, Y S Rajasekhara Reddy.
Meanwhile, another supporter of Jagan, Congress MLC Pulla Padmavati suffered a heart attack, her husband Pulla Bhaskar claimed.
Violence has erupted at Mahabubabad railway station earlier as pro-Telangana agitators attempted to block the tour of Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, who is against the separate statehood, leading to police firing.
Pro-Telangana activists vandalised the railway station where Jagan was supposed to alight at 11 this morning. There was heavy stone-pelting and the mob attacked Konda Surekha and her MLC husband K Murali, who were waiting to receive the MP. PTI
