Andhra Pradesh farmers today slapped cine actor-turned-politician Prithviraj with slippers albeit his photo for terming them as ‘Paid Artists’.
It may be recalled, Prithviraj who is also the Chairman of Sri Venkateswara Bhakti Channel (SCBC) called the agitating farmers of Amaravathi area as paid artists. He alleged that they were protesting on the instigation of Telugu Desam Party.
Enraged at his remarks the farmers especially the womenfolk who were agitating at Mandadam village slapped Prithvi’s Flexi with slippers demanding an apology. However, police prevented them when they were about to burn his effigy as a protest.
