TDP owes apology to women

Hyderabad, March 7: YSR Congress has demanded an apology from Chandrababu Naidu and Nandamuri Balakrishna and the removal of ministers from the cabinet for their anti-women words and deeds ever since TDP has come to power.

‘While the top leadership itself has been pursuing anti-woman policies it percolates down the line resulting in the harassment of women at various levels and such government should apologise to the women community,’ Party MLA RK Roja told media on the eve of the International Women’s Day here on Monday.

Chandrababu Naidu himself passes a remark discriminating girl child and Balakrishna’s nasty words against women during a public function clubbed with the Nara Lokesh Babu’s explicit pictures of his pleasure trips abroad have charged up TDP members who went beyond limits.

The ministers who have passed harsh comments against women should be dropped from the cabinet immediately failing which TDP has no right to celebrate the International Women’s Day.

Minister Ravela Kishore Babu’s son has misbehaved with a minority woman and the minister going all out to defend his kin and shifting the blame on YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is ridiculous. The minister should be sacked immediately along with Municipal Administration Minister Narayana  as there were 18 suicides in the chain of institutions he runs.

MRO Vanajakshi was beaten up by Government Whip Ch Prabhakar in the full glare of public and Chandrababu Naidu had blamed the officer and shielded his party leader which has sent a dangerous signal that even women officials will not be spared if they go against their wishes.

Chandrababu Naidu had gone to the extent of warning the woman officer that she had gone beyond her boundary limits.

‘This arrogance has instilled confidence among the TDP leaders and their anti-women attitude. From the suicide of Ritikeswari in Acharya Nagarjuna University to the recent setting ablaze of Indumati at Eluru by a jilted lover, women were getting a raw deal in the TDP government and we demand that the ministers, including Bonda Uma, Devineni Uma Maheswara Rao, P Narayana, Revela Kishore Babu and Chintamaneni Prabhakar should be sacked,’ she said adding that an apology by the Chief Minister should precede the his presence at the International Women’s Day function.
