Vastavam web: Veteran leader and MP JC Diwakar Reddy began an agitation in his own style this time against Prabodhananda Ashram in Anantapur district. In the past three days, the villagers turned angry as they were not being allowed to take Ganesh immersion procession through the Ashram street. Clashes erupted and several persons were injured with vehicles damaged as well.
Enraged at the attack, JC launched his protest at the village and blamed the police for not taking sufficient action against the Ashram. It may be recalled that Dera was in national spotlight for all wrong reasons a few years ago. Its Guru Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh was prosecuted and jailed for charges of rape and murder. Lakhs of followers of multi-religious social group Dera Baba dared to attack the police and some of them got killed in the resultant clashes at that time. Now by comparing with Dera, JC launched a full scale fight against the Prabodhananda ashram. He alleged that illegal and objectionable activities were taking place there.
