MLC P.V.N. Madhav has alleged that the YSR Congress Party government is trying to create a rift among tribal people by introducing a new column on religion in the household survey.

Addressing a media conference along with former MLA P. Vishnu Kumar Raju here on Monday, Mr. Madhav took exception to the inclusion of a separate ‘Tribal religion’ column in the survey.
