Vishakapatnam is located in Andra Pradesh it wore the look of a city under siege on Friday as irate Samaikyandhra protesters took the city by storm while the hapless police watched the crowd that was mostly restrained but did get restive occasionally.
Autorickshaws stayed off the roads, while businesses remained shut with Samaikya protagonists taking over the roads and thwarting every effort of the police to disperse them and ensure smooth traffic on the city roads.
At Andhra University, students blocked all roads inside the campus and refused to let traffic ply. They also set up camp on the main road opposite the varsity’s main gate which they blockaded by burning tyres, placing logs and burning effigies of Congress president Sonia Gandhi and general secretary in charge of Andhra Pradesh Digvijay Singh. The protesters also tore posters of the government inside the campus while the policemen simply looked on
