TDP president and former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh N. Chandrababu Naidu was taken into custody under preventive detention at Visakhapatnam Airport, here on Thursday. He was served notice under Section 151 of Cr. PC.
He was taken inside the terminal to the VIP lounge from the road outside the airport, where it is learnt that he will be sent back to Vijayawada.
Naidu was arriving on his first visit to the port city after it was declared the executive capital by YSRCP government last month.
TDP leaders and workers reached the airport, carrying party flags and banners, to welcome Naidu. YSRCP workers also gathered there to protest against Naidu’s visit. Holding black flags, they were raising slogans of “Babu go back”.
