Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy was injured during a roadshow in Vijayawada. Stones were thrown during the roadshow, with one of them hitting the CM. Jagan Reddy suffered a small cut on the left side of his temple, above his eye. Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) MLA Vellampalli Srinivasa Rao, who was present with the Chief Minister during the campaign, also sustained injuries. Jagan Reddy received medical treatment in a bus and then continued with his roadshow, 'Memantha Siddham Bus Yatra'. “The stone struck the CM while he was acknowledging the crowds as part of his bus tour at Vivekananda School Centre in Singh Nagar, Vijayawada,” said a statement from the CMO. YSRCP leaders claimed that workers from the Telugu Desam Party were involved in the attack. Prime Minister Narendra Modi wished the Chief Minister a speedy recovery in a post on X.
