Intel fails on violence

By Udumula Sudhakar Reddy
Sunday’s violence at Tuni in East Godavari district has been attributed to the failure of the police department, particularly intelligence agencies. In an emergency meeting held with officials in
Vijayawada on Sunday evening following the violence by Kapu agitators, Chief Minister N.
Chandrababu Naidu expressed his anger over the police and intelligence failure.
While protesters were gathering in large numbers and given that their leader
Mudragada Padmanabham is known for his rebellious methods, the police did nothing.
Mr Naidu said: “The police didn’t smell it. Intelligence didn’t smell it. I also didn’t anticipate this
kind of situation. I only anticipated that other castes may react.” Police didn’t anticipate
the plan of the protesters as the venue of the Kapu Garjana was in a coconut grove near the railway
