Tungaturthi MLA Gadari Kishore is facing criticism for using inappropriate language towards a group of people who are getting benefits from the government. At a meeting, Kishore said that he would ensure that even those who belong to opposition parties receive benefits under the Dalit Bandhu scheme. However, he made a mistake and mentioned that even the MRPS ‘Kodukulu’ (sons) were getting benefits, which angered many people. The video of his speech has gone viral, and many political leaders have spoken out against him. A lawyer named PYugender also demanded an apology from Kishore for his remarks, but the MLA’s followers attacked Yugender’s car and smashed its windows.
Opposition parties have condemned the attack on Yugender and criticized Kishore’s behavior. Congress leaders Cheruku Sudhakar and AddankiDayakar, along with other opposition leaders, MRPS leaders, and representatives of various legal associations, visited Yugender to condemn the attack. They also urged the SP of Suryapet district to take action against those responsible for the attack.
