VIJAYAWADA: Deputy Chief Minister Nimmakayala Chinarajappa on Saturday said that the government will not give permission to Kapu leader Mudragada Padmanabham to organise Chalo Amaravati programme on July 26.

Speaking to mediapersons at Kakinada, Chinarajappa  alleged that Mudragada is trying to create law and order problems by organising such programmes and said the government would not allow such acts to take place.

Stating that the government is committed for the welfare of Kapus, the minister handling home portfolio appealed to the Kapus not to follow Mudragada.

As part of mounting pressure on the State Government to accept the demand of including Kapus in Backward Classes, Mudragada announced to organise ‘Chalo Amaravati’ programme from Kirlampudi in East Godavari district on July 26.

In a letter to Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu last month, Mudragada said that he wrote several letters to the former starting from July 26, 2015 demanding to fulfill the promise of inclusion of Kapus in Backward classes. “As there was no response from the government for the last two years, we decided to organise an indefinite walkathon from July 26,” said Mudragada.
