TDP anti-dalit policies flayed

Hyderabad, Aug 11: Condemning the arrest of Party MLA
in Visakhapatanm, YSR Congress has demanded that the TDP Government should set
up the SC, ST Commission as the sections are deprived of the welfare schemes after
Chandrababu Naidu took over the reins of the State.

“We strongly condemn the arrest of our Party MLA
Sarveswara Rao who objected to the display TDP leaders’ photos while observing
Adivasi Diwas at Andhra University and expressed concern for not putting up
even a single picture of adivasi and dalit icons,’ party SC Cell President M
Nagarjuna told reporters here on Tuesday.

When he raised objection for not placing even a single
photo of Ambedkar and Adivasi leaders and objected to the display of TDP leaders
photos prominently being placed, he was arrested which shows the arrogance of
the State and the respect it gives to dalits and adivasis.

“We strongly condemn the arrest. TDP has been adopting
anti-dalit policies as it has passed a GO to carry forward the SC ST Sub-plan
funds without spending them for the intended purpose,” he said.

 It
was YSR who has worked for the welfare of adivasis and have given them pattas
but the TDP government has been neglecting the marginalsied sections of the
society, he said.
