Ongoing Attacks on Dalits Backed by Jagan’s Government: Nara Lokesh

Central Government and Human Rights Commission should intervene, the TDP National General Secretary urges

TDP National General Secretary Nara Lokesh, who has consistently raised his voice against the atrocities inflicted upon Dalits in Andhra Pradesh, has today emphasized that the series of attacks on Dalits continues in the state under the instigation of the government.

In response to another incident where a member of the YSRCP, Muttareddy, severely insulted and attacked the family of Dalit man Nippula Koteswara Rao in Peddapuram of Veerullapadu Mandal in NTR district, Nara Lokesh pointed out that the state’s encouragement of such attacks is evident from the government’s reluctance to take action against those responsible. He revealed that when the victim, Koteswara Rao, reported to the police that Muttareddy insulted him based on his caste, the police ignored the complaint. Furthermore, the staff at Nandigama Government Hospital refused to provide medical care to the victim’s family after the attack. Nara Lokesh highlighted these instances as clear indications that the ongoing attacks on Dalits are supported by the Jagan government.

Nara Lokesh expressed that the bailable sections filed against the accused in Dalit youth Kandru Shyam Kumar’s attack suggests that these attacks on Dalits have the backing of the government. He appealed to the Central Government and the National Human Rights Commission to intervene and ensure the protection of Dalits amidst the prevailing anarchy in Andhra Pradesh.
