MRPS National President Manda Krishna Madiga alleged Kathi Mahesh was banned from Hyderabad for six months just because he is a Dalit. He went on to say, 'It's more like Caste Ban rather than City Ban'.
Manda Krishna Madiga opined misusing freedom of speech and hurting the sentiments of others is wrong. He, however, feels such activities were treated as an offense only when Dalits were involved. MRPS Chief complained such things won't be addressed if people from Upper Castes were involved. He questioned, 'Whether Paripoornananda Swamy didn't made objectionable comments on Shirdi Sai and Mother Teresa? Why didn't DGP implement such an Act then itself? BJP MLA Raja Singh keeps hurting people of other religions & weaker sections with his comments. Books had be written criticizing Writer Ranganayakamma's Ramayanam. Why those individuals weren't banned?'.
Here, Manda Krishna Madiga need to realize even Paripoornananda Swamy was banned for six months and the order has been implemented Today morning itself. Cases were booked against Raja Singh in the past for making controversial comments.
Virasam Leaders Varavara Rao and Kalyan Rao condemned the ban on Kathi Mahesh. TMRPS Working President Vangapalli Srinivas told he would meet KCR, KTR and DGP seeking revoke of ban against the Critic.
