Mudragada blames Naidu; plans fast on Feb. 5

Refuting Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu’s comments on Sunday night, Kapu Garjana leader and former minister Mudragada Padmanabham said Chandrababu Naidu was alone responsible for the flare-up. He alleged that rowdy elements were specially coached and brought in to create violence at the meet.
Talking to mediapersons at his Kirlampudi residence in East Godavari district, Mudragada said he suspected there would be more such planned violence in the days to come to defame the Kapus. He said he and his wife would launch an indefinite hunger strike on February 5 and if they get arrested, they would continue the fast in the prison. He called upon the people not to come to Kirlampudi, but to stage peaceful protests locally. “I want to benefit my community before I die,” he said.
Mudragada also refuted Chandrababu’s allegation that he had sold himself to a political party. “I had agitated in the past against the Congress. Did Chandrababu buy me then? If so, let him reveal how much did he buy me for?” asked Mudragada.
He said the TDP government was following “use-and-throw” system while dealing with Kapus. “The government has money for foreign tours, chartered flights and crores to spend on Pattiseema project and Amaravati inaugural. But, has no money for Kapus,” he quipped. (NSS)
