MRPS president Manda Krishna Madiga will launch ‘Madiga Chaitanya Ratha Yatra’ at Naravaripalle on March 10 to press categorization of SCs.
Manda Krishna Madiga will pay tributes to Chandrababu Naidu’s parents – Kharjura Naidu and Ammanamma - at their tombs before embarking on the yatra which will culminate in a public meeting at Vijayawada on April 30. Speaking to media, he said that he decided to pay tributes to the Chief Minister’s parents because they had prevailed on their son to issue a G.O. for categorization of SCs.
He said that they met them in 1996 and sought their blessings. They agreed with our view that Madigas are backward compared to the Malas. Ms.Ammanamma gave me assurance that she would convince her son to concede our plea. It was perhaps her word that resulted in the release of G.O. on June 5, 1997 by then TDP government led by Chandrababu. We will again pray to the Chief Minister’s parents with the hope that our wish will be fulfilled’, said Manda Krishna Madiga.
