Demanding that it made its stand clear on categorization of SCs, Madiga Reservation Porata Samithi (MRPS) President Manda Krishna Madiga on Sunday warned the government of serious consequences if it did not take an all-party delegation to New Delhi over the issue.
Talking to media persons, the MRPS leader demanded that the state government honour its commitment by sending an all-party delegation to New Delhi to push for the categorisation of SCs.
Krishna Madiga warned that the MRPS would intensify its agitation if the government did not act on its promise and lead the all-party delegation by January 31st.
The MRPS leader demanded that the government show its sincerity by putting pressure on the centre so that a Constitutional Amendment Bill was introduced in the Parliament for categorisation of SCs.
He warned that the MRPS leaders and activists would picket the Assembly on February 22nd and obstruct the proceedings of the budget session if the government did not make its stand clear by January 31st.
"It will have to face the ire of SCs if it does not initiate measures to implement the Usha Mehra Panel recommendations which favoured categorisation of SCs," Krishna Madiga said.
