Sources say that situation got out of hand with Tirupathi now emerging as one of the epicenters of the ongoing agitation, it is taking a severe toll on the daily activities and the economy of the temple towns of Tirupathi and Tirumala.
Upset with the lathi charge that the police had resorted to, Seemandhra JAC has called for a bandh in the region tomorrow. For a region which is already facing a lot of trouble over Telangana issue, this seems to be one more hurting stone.
