Several Dalit leaders, including Bojja Tarakam, on Saturday began padayatra from Lakshmipet to the Srikakulam collectorate demanding the government distribute 250 acres to Dalit families. Padayatra would reach Srikakulam on Tuesday.

He demanded that Ministers Kondru Murali and Botcha Satyanarayana should be sacked from the Cabinet since they were indirectly responsible for the killing of four Dalits at Lakshmipet of Vangara mandal on June 12. Mr. Tarakam also asked the government to set up a special court immediately and file the chargesheet in the court.
