Is Chiranjeevi behind the desecration of Babasaheb Ambedkar statues in the state? Did he encourage his caste leaders (Kapus) to vandalize the statues of Ambedkar? Yes, he did! This is the sensational allegation made by the Madiga Reservation Porata Samithi president Manda Krishna Madiga.
The reason for Manda Krishna’s allegations is that one of the prime accused in the desecration of statues, Pallam Raju is a big fan of Chiranjeevi. Pallam Raju was one of the accused in the attack of Jeevitha-Rajashekar in Hyderabad.
Manda Krishna is known to make sensation and often unsubstantiated allegations against all leaders. This one too is seen like one of those. He makes wild statements just to grab headlines and disappears for some time. He repapers only after the furore over his statement has died down and then starts making fresh allegations.
