Members of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) plan to stage protests throughout Andhra Pradesh State on Dec. 5. The purpose of the action is to demand that the state government improve road infrastructure. Demonstrators will gather along roads - specifically near sections of roadways that are in poor condition - starting at 1000. Participation in the gatherings will likely vary considerably by location; hundreds of protesters may take part in rallies in large cities such as Visakhapatnam, Vijayawada, and Guntur.Authorities will likely increase security near all demonstration sites as a precaution. Localized traffic disruptions will probably occur in some areas. Demonstrators could attempt to occupy sections of roadways or impose roadblocks. Clashes between protesters and police may occur, especially if officers use force to disperse gatherings.
Avoid all demonstrations due to the potential for violence. Use caution near rally venues during the demonstrations. Confirm road status and allow additional travel time Dec. 5. Heed advice from security personnel. Do not attempt to bypass any protester roadblocks.
