A group comprising members of Ambedkar Association strongly opposed former Peddapalli MP G. Vivek garlanding the statue first and they subsequently removed the garland.
Reacting to this, Mr Vivek’s supporters picked up an argument with the Ambedkar Association members. Soon, the two groups started jostling with each other, forcing the police to intervene and pacify them. Earlier, MLC Puranam Satish and collector R.V Karnan paid rich tributes to B.R Amebdkar
