The Madiga Reservation Porata Samithi (MRPS) on Friday threatened to intensify its agitation if the union government fails to introduce a Bill for the categorisation of Scheduled Castes in the ensuing winter session of the Parliament starting from 22 November.
Talking to media persons after submitting a memorandum to Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy at his Camp Office, MRPS founder Manda Krishna Madiga said that he had appealed to the CM to use his office to prevail upon the Centre to introduce the SC categorisation Bill in Parliament.
He said that the CM must convince UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi to introduce the Bill.
Krishna Madiga said that the CM has responded favourably to his request, and that he had assured him that he would make efforts to prevail upon the Centre over the issue.
However, he threatened to stage rallies and dharnas across AP from 14 December if the Centre fails to pass the Bill during the winter session.
The MRPS founder said that activists would picket Hyderabad on 17 and 18 December as part of the agitation. (INN)
