Samaikhya Andhra Joint Action Committee, which is opposing a possible division of Andhra Pradesh, Tuesday lodged a complaint at Three Town police station in the coastal city against MP Ponnam Prabhakar.

Prabhakar from Karimnagar had compared his counterpart from Andhra region Vundavalli Arun Kumar to a Peddapuram prostitute.

Peddapuram is a town in East Godavari district in coastal Andhra.

Arun Kumar is an MP from Rajahmundry constituency in the same district.

A woman leader of the JAC demanded that Prabhakar publicly apologise to Andhra women for making the derogatory comment.

She said the politician had stooped to the level of hurting the sentiments of women.

Prabhakar had made the comment while reacting sharply to Arun Kumar criticizing Telangana leaders during a speech at a recent meeting at Rajahmundry.
