Praja Rajyam Party president Chiranjeevi took the holy dip in river Pranahita and performed special pujas at Arjunagutta on the banks of the river on Sunday during the ongoing Pranahita Pushkaram.
However, Telangana sympathisers and students gathered at the place and raised slogans against Chiranjeevi in protest against his anti-Telangana stand. The agitators hurled sand at Chiranjeevi and showed slippers at him when he was performing the pujas on the banks of the river, in protest against his anti-Telangana stand. The police took precautions to see that no untoward incident took place.
Later, speaking to media persons, the PRP president made it clear that his party would respect the Srikrishna committee report on the separate Telangana statehood issue.
