AP Minister Ayyanna Patrudu had a bad experience when he came to the inauguration of SRM University in Amaravati on Saturday. Police didn't allow Ayyanna to enter the premises though he introduced himself as the Cabinet Minister of the State.

Ayyanna Patrudu expressed his anguish and left the spot without attending the inauguration. Speaking to media, He said: 'Insults and Felicitations are parts & parcel of politician's life'.

Later, Guntur Collector Kona Sasidhar telephoned Ayyanna Patrudu and expressed regret over what has happened. He personally invited the Minister to attend the inauguration.

Supporters of Ayyanna have been suspecting the role of another AP Minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao behind the insult. They assume such a treatment was meted out to their Leader as he reported to SIT against Ganta's role in Visakha Land Scam.
