Mangalore: MCC Joint Commissioner Gheraoed over Neglect of Dalits
Mangalore, Mar 12 (7-30 am): Communist Party of India (Marxist)
workers staged a gherao against the joint commissioner of the
Mangalore City Corporation on Friday.
They alleged that in spite of two long years having elapsed,
applications from Dalits regarding supply of Sintex tanks, repair to
houses, toilets, power connection etc. have been held up on various
tables at the MCC. The applicants have been running from pillar to
post to get their applications approved but there was no response from
the city body.
They accused Congress also collaborating in the scams of the ruling
BJP, thereby exposing itself. Soon joint commissioner Vijayalakshmi
Shenoy arrived on the scene with revenue officers Meghana R and
Praveenchandra Karkera. They assured the agitators the matter would be
resolved within a week's time. Only they the crowd dispersed.
The gherao was led by CPM city unit secretary Sunil Kumar Bajal and
other leaders from Dalit organizations and DYFI.
