Hyderabad, Dec 13 (ANI): Lakshmi Parvathi, the widow of former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N T Rama Rao, was arrested by Hyderabad Police on Sunday after she launched a one-day hunger strike to protest the proposed division of the state.

Police have already imposed prohibitory orders in the city to maintain law and order in view of the continuing mass protests in various parts of the state.

Interacting with the media after her arrest, Parvathi demanded that Telugu Desam Party (TDP) president N Chandrababu should apologize to the people of the state for agreeing to its division.

She said by supporting the division of the state, Naidu had hurt the sentiments of the people.

Parvathi recalled that TDP founder NTR always stood for a united state of all Telugu speaking people.

She also alleged that Tamil Nadu was behind the conspiracy to divide Andhra Pradesh. (ANI)
