Enforce SC/ST Act strictly, says MP

Staff Reporter

KAKINADA: Amalapuram MP G.V. Harsha Kumar on Thursday expressed
dissatisfaction over the implementation of the SC/ST (Prevention of
Atrocities) Act and said that he would not remain silent if the Act
was not implemented properly.

Addressing a review meeting of the district vigilance and monitoring
committee on SC/ST welfare here, Mr. Harsha Kumar referred to the
quashing of the case filed by Joint Collector K. Sasidhar under the
Act against an advocate by the High Court. "The government must
approach the Supreme Court to render justice to the official. The Act
is not being implemented properly due to lack of sincerity among those
who part and parcel of the administration," he said.

Members of the committee faulted the district tribal welfare officer
for not turning up at the meeting. They felt that absence of full-time
joint director for the Social Welfare Department was resulting in
delay in implementation of the welfare schemes. Elaborate discussion
took place on recruitment of staff for welfare hostels on outsourcing
basis and relief and rehabilitation to the victims of the atrocity
cases. Additional Joint Collector B. Rama Rao presided over the
meeting. Rajya Sabha member T. Ratna Bai, Superintendent of Police
(administration) S.J. Janardhan, and District Revenue Officer S.
Venkata Rao were present.
