Sixteen persons were injured on Tuesday after a clash erupted between workers of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) in Mettavalasa village of Srikakulam.

Sub Inspector of Srikakulam Police, M Ahmad told ANI, "A clash erupted between workers of TDP and YSRCP in Mettavalasa village of Srikakulam allegedly over social media post related to recent local body polls. 16 persons were injured. They were taken to hospital."
