Hyderabad, Apr 04: The Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President Capt N Uttam Kumar Reddy alleged that TRS Government was top in the country in mistreating Dalits.
He accused Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao of repeatedly humiliating the Dalits ever since the formation of Telangana.
Addressing a massive meeting, as part of Congress Praja Chaitanya Yatra in Manthani on Tuesday, Mr Reddy supported the ongoing agitation of Dalits against the attempts to change provisions of SC, STs Atrocities (Prevention) Act. He said Congress president Rahul Gandhi has already announced his support to Dalits, who are fighting for their rights. He also said any change in the Act would be strongly opposed.
Mr. Reddy said that Telangana was among the States where Dalits and Girijans are not safe. "Like all communities, Dalits too had a lot of aspirations from the formation of Telangana.
They too believed the promises made by KCR and expected to get three acres of land, double bedroom houses and a job in their family. However, what they got was only disappointment and insult by TRS Government," he said.
