Tribal people and DWCRA groups have confronted officials who went to conduct Janmabhoomi Maa Vooru programme in Komarada and Gajapathinagaram mandals today.
According to sources, DWCRA women and men belonging to MPTC member and Sarpanch of Gajapathinagaram reportedly assaulted Velugu Assistant Project Manager Rowthu Srinivasa Rao for harassing them by not releasing DWCRA and Sri Nidhi loans even while he was trying to explain them the reasons. Police came to the rescue.
In Komarada mandal, tribal people from four panchayats blocked way of MPDO B.Rama Rao who was to conduct the programme at Peda Pedumu by erecting barricades. They have been demanding road connectivity to their villages for some time. They said that though they submitted representations to the officials on the issue no action was taken.
