Staff Reporter

MRPS president Manda Krishna Madiga felt the heat of the Samaikyandhra
protest here on Monday for his pro-Telangana stand.

A section of integrationists from within his own outfit staged a
protest, forcing him to cancel his programmes and leave the city. He
was scheduled to address MRPS activists as part of his State-wide
campaign to strengthen the organisation.

The situation turned tense before his arrival to the meeting venue as
a section of MRP functionaries created a scene against his visit.
Chairs were flung in the air and tempers ran high at Spoorthi Bhavan,
the venue of the programme, in the run-up to his visit. The
integrationists accused Mr. Krishna of joining hands with Telangana
protagonists, 'sabotaging' the cause of the SC categorisation.

The protesters vowed not to allow the MRPS chief into the Andhra
region until he changed his stance vis-à-vis the separate Telangana

Meanwhile, a police officer met Mr. Krishna and requested him to
cancel his programme.
