Pathapalli village in Mahbubnagar district has shot to fame at national-level for fighting against caste system. About two months ago, BCs in the village were angery over a Dalit RTC driver offering pradikshanas after the marriage at the village temple. They performed temple purification ritual. Dalits filed a complaint in police station alleging BCs insulted them. In the process, Dalits did not allow burial of two bodies belonging to BCs near their houses. Police intervened and allowed the cremation. In retaliation, BCs attacked Dalits and destroyed their houses. When police failed to register cases against the guilty, Dalit Associations gave 'Chalo Pathapalli' call.
