The ongoing tussle between YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) reached new heights on Saturday as the under-construction YSRCP office in Tadepalli was demolished. The opposition leader claimed that the building was illegally erected on Irrigation Department land, prompting swift action from the authorities.

The Capital Region Development Authority (CRDA) and the Mangalagiri Tadepalli Municipal Corporation (MTMC) initiated the demolition after a complaint from TDP. YSRCP alleged that the operation began at 5.30 am, despite a High Court order to halt such activities. According to a statement from the ruling party, former Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy had allegedly misused power to allocate the land for the office.

YSRCP leaders accused the Chandrababu Naidu-led NDA of using dictatorial tactics to carry out the demolition. They pledged to resist what they deem vendetta politics and vowed to continue fighting for the people. The controversy highlights the fraught political landscape in the southern state under the current government.
