When on one side Kapu leader and former Minister Mudragada Padmanabham is making arrangements to launch a padayatra from Ravulapalem to Antarvedi in East Godavari district on January 25 demanding inclusion of Kapus in the list of BCs, the police on their part made it clear that no procession or meeting will be allowed without prior permission.
Superintendent of Police M.Ravi Prakash speaking at a press conference on Saturday said that it was not possible to allow the padayatra for which there was no application seeking for permission in the current situation. He said that leaders of BC organizations have sought permission to undertake a motorcycle rally in the district from January 28 which is under consideration.
Ravi Prakash said that there had been violence at their meetings in 1994, 1998 and 2016 resulting in disruption of law and order in the district. In this back ground, the police cannot allow the ‘padayatra’ to go, he said.
