Hyderabad: Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief N Chandrababu Naidu landed in Hyderabad Wednesday night, five days after he was arrested at Dharmabad in Maharashtra in connection with the controversial Babhli dam issue.

The special chartered flight hired by the Maharashtra government brought Naidu and his party leaders from Aurangabad and touched the airstrip at Hyderabad International airport at Shamshabad at 10 pm.

Naidu's wife Bhuvaneswari and son Lokesh Babu were among scores of TDP leaders and workers who received him. TDP supporters, who turned up in a large number at the airport, raised slogans against the Congress and the Maharashtra Government.

A heavy police force was posted at the airport.

The TDP chief and his supporters were arrested in Dharmabad for violating prohibitory orders and insisting on visiting the controversial Babhli barrage site in Nanded district on Saturday.

TDP says the barrage on Godavari river was "illegal" and will affect the flow of water into Andhra Pradesh.

Naidu and other leaders, against whom the Maharashtra Government withdrew all charges before releasing them, were driven straight to Care Hospital at Banjara Hills for medical tests.
