Dalit associations condemn violent protest
'Those who were in no way connected with Indiranagar issue were behind
Dalit associations in the city on Wednesday staged a dharna at
Ambedkar Junction near LIC office condemning the untoward incidents at
the GVMC during slum-dwellers' protest.
They garlanded the statue of Ambedkar and raised slogans against those
who created trouble on Monday during their protest.
Corporators Koppula Venkata Rao, K. Vengala Rao, and Polipalli Jyothi
and representatives of several dalit organisations were present.
Mr. Vengala Rao said POW leader Lakshmi was projecting herself as a
champion of dalits' cause and wanted firm action to be taken against
her for Monday's incidents.
Those who were in no way connected with Indiranagar issue were behind
the trouble. She was trying to mislead people in the garb of dalits'
cause, he alleged. He and other leaders met Municipal Commissioner B.
Mr. Ramanjaneyulu said only 22 slums were shifted as there was no
alternative. Of the 741 slums, 354 would be developed in situ.
Mr. Venkata Rao, Ms. Jyothhi, K. Kanna Rao (corporator), Puhle
Ambekdar Samskrutika Samakhya convener and co-conveners P. Subba Rao
and G. Arjun, J Rajagopal (Relli Sangham), Bharat Nastika Samajam
president Jayagopal were among those who met the Commissioner.
