Hyderabad: In another incident of power trip by the political class, the YSR Congress MLA Narayana Swamy was caught on camera involved in a heated argument with the senior police officer in Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh.

The altercation happened after police denied permission to Swamy and his workers to carry out a protest in the mortuary. On Friday, a gruesome accident occurred in the state, where a speeding lorry ran over several pedestrians near the Yerpedu police station. At least 14 people were killed and 20 others injured.

Instead of bowing down to the demand of the leader, the police officer decided to give it back.

The Superintendent of Police, Tirupathi Urban, Jayalakshmi, who was at questioned the MLA, "People have died and you are doing politics here. Do you have any humanity. Please take this outside. If you have problem give complaint, don't do politics here. Is this the way you talk to officer in uniform. You are intimidating. You are stopping me from doing my duty. Please leave this area."

The MLA and his followers were forced to leave the place.

Still unapologetic, Narayana Swamy told CNN News 18, "So many people died in accident, so I was there to extend my support. However, police misbehaved with me. SP supports TDP and that is why I was stopped."

The Union government decision to end Red Beacon has been lauded by everyone. But the question is will it put an end to VVIP culture. Incidents like these show, what needs to change is the mindset and attitude.
