Mudragada Padmanabham is continuing his Deeksha in Rajamahendravaram Government Hospital demanding the release of those arrested in Tuni Violence. He is refusing treatment and is also not taking water. His family is also continuing Deeksha but is taking water. Doctors are continuously monitoring his health.
On the other side, ground reports seem to be not good for Mudragada. Reports suggest that his fast is losing credibility as it is not for Kapu Reservations but to release those arrested in Violence. Even Kapu people are not happy with him supporting those resorted to violence and vandalism which brought so much of bad name for them.
If his health further deteriorates, Government may consider the option of treating him force-ably. On the other side, government clarified that it can not withdraw the cases related to Tuni Violence and the arrests will continue. Security is beefed up in East Godavari to make sure nothing untoward happens.
