Activists of the TDP and YSR Congress Party on Wednesday clashed with sticks and pelted stones against each other during the ZP High School Management Committee (SMC) chairman election, at Tirumala village of Yeleswaram Mandal in East Godavari district. The parents of the school students elect the SMC chairman by raising hands.
