Speaking to the media here on Monday, Rajesh contended that the SC, ST Sub-Plan existed since 1972 and it was not due to the efforts of the Kiran Kumar Reddy government. He said it was not proper for the Chief Minister, who brought about a “toothless” Act with regard to SC, ST Sub-Plan, to give wide publicity that he was helping the SCs and STs. Alleging that attacks on Dalits have increased under the Kiran Kumar Reddy government, he said the Dalits received total justice during the tenure of late Dr YSR regime. He claimed that it was Dr YSR who had spent huge funds for the uplift of the SCs and STs.
Congress rebel and Chintalapudi MLA Maddali Rajesh has alleged that Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy was not a ‘Dalit Bandhu’ but a ‘Dalit Raabhandu’.
