High tension prevailed at Kothagudem, in Bhadradri district, as issues over reservations between Lambada and Koyaa tribes came to a head. Lambadas had called for a 'Atmagauravam' (self-respect) meet. They are piqued over the attacks on them, from other tribes like Koyaas, over Scheduled Tribes (ST) reservations. This has led to tension between both the groups. While police refused permission for the Lambada meet, Koyaa students boycotted classes. A huge posse of police has been deployed at Kothagudem to prevent clashes between the two.
