TIRUPATI: A section of Dalits belonging to the Thummalagunta village have taken exception to another section of them for trying to kick up a controversy over a Dalit burial ground issue.

In a signed statement, the MPP of the Tirupati (Rural) mandal, M. Thirumaliah, and other Dalit leaders alleged that the other section, by playing into the hands of some ‘vested interests’, were creating a controversy over the burial ground and the Ambedkar statue although issue was already ‘amicably settled’.

The section gave a ‘clean chit’ to TUDA Chairman Chevireddi Bhsakar Reddy and criticised the members of the other section for putting spokes in the development works he was initiating .
