Political activists demanding early classification of Scheduled castes went on a rampage in Andhra Pradesh on Saturday and attacked houses of two ministers and some MLAs.
The activists of Madiga Reservation Porata Samiti (MRPS) are demanding that the Centre immediately table a bill for classification of Scheduled Castes in the state.
MRPS men attacked the residence of state transport minister Kanna Laxminarayana in Guntur and excise minister Jakkampudi Ramamohan Rao in Rajahmundry, police sources said, adding no damage was reported in these two incidents.
Besides, they also vandalised the office of sub-registrar in Secunderabad, the houses of Kaavali MLA Magunta Parvatamma in Sri Potti Sriramulu Nellore district, Nagaram MLA P Rajeswari Devi and Kakinada MLA M Gopala Krishna in East Godavari district.
In another incident in East Godavari, MRPS workers detained Rajolu MLA Krishnam Raju after attacking his house.
In Tirupati, they reportedly tried to attack the residence of local P Chinta Mohan but police thwarted their attempt.
