HYDERABAD: Accusing the government of failure to arrest those
responsible for damaging the statues of Ambedkar in East Godavari
district, Dalit leaders and students have demanded a comprehensive
inquiry into the incident for facts to come out.

They called upon people to make the proposed state bandh on January 30
a success. A delegation led by balladeer Gadar met chief minister N
Kiran Kumar Reddy at the Secretariat on Friday and urged him to take
necessary steps to prevent recurrence of such incidents. There was a
need to provide protection to the statues of great Indian leaders,
they said.

Talking to newsmen later, Gadar said a round table would be held at
Sundarayya Vignana Kendram at Baghlingampally on Sunday to finalise a
programme to prevent attacks on the statues of Ambedkar. Leaders of
various political parties have been invited to the conference.�
Professor Kancha Ilaiah and several students of Osmania University
also demanded protection of Ambedkar statues.
