Malas blame Babu for delay in SC categorization
Kakinada, Dec 3 (INN): Mala Mahanadu state president RS Ratnakar on Friday targeted the Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu for his inaction in opposing the categorization of Scheduled castes in the state. Addressing the 'Malala Polikeka' being organized by Mala Mahanadu at Anand Bharathi Grounds in Kakinada in East Godavari district on Friday, Mr Ratnakar said that if Mr Naidu and other Left party leaders had taken active steps, the situation would not have come to such a level. Stating the categorization move as 'unwarranted,' Mr Ratnakar urged the Centre to study the Usha Mehra Committee report and arrive at a decision.
With the categorization of SCs, the Madiga community would lose employment and educational opportunities, he pointed out. He also blamed Praja Rajyam Party president K Chiranjeevi for extending support for the categorization of SCs Bill without knowing the contents. Three lakh persons from Mala community from the nook and corner of the state turned up for the meeting to voice their protest and to safeguard their interests and self respect. All local MLAs, MPs, ZPTC and MPTC members have extended their solidarity to the convention.
