KADAPA: Congress Municipal Corporator B. Ayyanna and some sanitary workers were arrested on Tuesday when they protested in front of the Kadapa Municipal Corporation office.

Demanding construction of quarters for sanitary workers and provision of facilities, they protested for an hour demanding a concrete assurance from Mayor P. Ravindranath Reddy and Municipal Commissioner S. Aleem Basha. When Mr. Ayyanna refused to budge, Kadapa One Town police arrested him and other protesters.

The Mayor later told newsmen that action would be initiated for removal of sanitary workers, who habitually abstained from duty and agitated over petty issues.
