Describing the sacking of Dr Shankar Rao from the as ‘political murder of a dalit leader’, he said that MRPS would organize protests across the state against the move.

Stating that the MRPS would teach a fitting lesson to the Chief Minister and Botsa Satyanarayana in the ensuing by-elections, Krishna Madiga alleged that Chiranjeevi has cheated the Dalit community members in the name of social justice and merged his party into the Congress by violating the principles. “In the Kapu-Reddy community war, Dalit leader Shankar Rao became a scapegoat and lost his portfolio,” he stated and added that the Congress has proved again that it always supports upper castes.
