MRPS (Madiga Reservation Porata Samithi) founder Manda Krishna Madiga lashed out at Telangana Chief Minister KCR over ousting the state's first Deputy CM-Dalit leader T. Rajaiah. Welcoming the induction of Kadiyam Srihari as the new Deputy CM who also happens to be a Dalit leader, Manda Krishna Madiga hit out at KCR for the manner in which Rajaiah was fired. Dubbing it as "political murder", Manda Krishna went onto allege that KCR has laid a "ploy" to bury the political future of Rajiah.
Krishna added, "It's KCR who brought Rajaiah into TRS with an intention to insult him and thus proved his upper hand." Manda Krishna Madiga is said to be close associate of T. Rajaiah and this is one of the reasons that upset CM KCR.
