[ZESTCaste] Botcha, Chiru join KKR to oust Shankar


Botcha, Chiru join KKR to oust Shankar

Hyderabad, Jan 20: Madiga Reservation Porata Samithi (MRPS)
founder-president Manda Krishna Madiga has alleged that APCC chief
Botcha Satyanarayana and actor-turned-politician K. Chiranjeevi have
joined hands with Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy in the
conspiracy to remove Dr P. Shankar Rao, a Dalit, from the Cabinet for
exposing corrupt activities of his cabinet colleagues.

Speaking to media persons here on Friday, the MRPS leader said that
the SCs, STs, BCs and Minorities would bury Kiran Kumar Reddy and
Botcha Satyanarayana politically in the next elections. He said that
they considered Dr Shankar Rao's removal from the Cabinet as a
political murder. He also commented that a Dalit minister like Dr
Shankar Rao had become a scapegoat in the fight between Kapus and
Reddys for supremacy. Stating that always the Congress high priests
stand by upper castes, he said that the Shankar Rao's episode proved
beyond doubt that the Congress High Command never side with the
Dalits. Therefore, the Congress party's days are numbered, he added.

Manda Krishna said that a Dalit leader was sacrificed in the struggle
between Kapus and Reddys for supremacy in the State, government and
party. While the Kapu leaders Botcha Satyanarayana and Chiranjeevi
were fighting for Kapu domination, Kiran Kumar Reddy was fighting on
behalf of Reddys for retaining their hold and both the factions have
won the game by sacrificing an outspoken Dr Shankar Rao, who is being
hailed as Anna Hazare of Andhra Pradesh, he added. While Botsa and
Chiranjeevi succeeded in getting only two former PRP leaders inducted
into the Cabinet, Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy won the war by
getting Dr Shankar Rao ousted from the Cabinet for exposing corrupt
activities of his colleagues.

Pointing out that the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) opined that it
was taking Shankar Rao's ouster from the Cabinet as a great insult to
Telangana Dalits, Krishna Madiga said that the former should chalk out
an agitation program against the arm-twisting methods of the
Seemandhra rulers. He also said that they would storm the
Collectorates on Saturday in protest against the injustice meted out
to Dr Shankar Rao. They would also organize dharnas in all mandal
headquarters in the region on January 22 and road blockade program on
January 23. The MRPS would observe January 26 Republic Day as Black
Day and organize protests, he said, adding that he would convene a
meeting of all community organizations on January 27 and declare war
against the Congress.

Lashing out at Chiranjeevi severely, the MRPS leader said that because
the former had floated Praja Rajyam party with the slogan of social
justice and condemned Congress policies and rampant corruption, his
fledgling party could get more than 70 lakh votes winning 18 Assembly
seats in the last elections. After joining Congress, Chiranjeevi has
changed the meaning of "social justice" by getting Cabinet berths to
the people of his community, he said, adding that in the next
elections, the people would not believe Chiranjeevi when he goes to
them for votes.
