Legislators from Andhra Pradesh opposed to a separate Telangana staged a protest here Wednesday against the government's decision to carve out the state.

The legislators and their supporters protested outside Andhra Pradesh Bhavan in central Delhi and then marched towards Rajghat - Mahatma Gandhi's memorial on the banks of the Yamuna river.

A scuffle broke out between them and pro-Telangana supporters, forcing the police to intervene.

"We had to convince the pro-Telangana supporters to allow them (anti-Telangana supporters) to protest and only then were they allowed to advance towards Rajghat," a police official told IANS.
