Members of the Hyderabad Karnataka Kanaka Jagruti Vedike staged a protest demonstration outside the Deputy Commissioner’s office here on Wednesday for more than an hour, after coming in a procession from Jagat Circle, against the denial of the Scheduled Tribe caste certificate to people belonging to Kadu Kuruba tribe and its synonyms by the revenue authorities.

The vedike members, in their memorandum submitted to the Deputy Commissioner, said that as per the orders issued in August 2014, revenue authorities were issuing the ST certificates to people belonging to Kadu Kuruba tribe and its synonyms, but for the past 10 months these certificates have not been issued to the members without assigning any reason. This had resulted in people belonging to these tribes facing problems in getting employment and reservation in educational opportunities.
