The State governments in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh and NDA government at the Centre have been violating the democratic rights of the people, alleged the leaders of Telangana Civil Liberties Committee (CLC).
Hanamkonda: The State governments in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh and NDA government at the Centre have been violating the democratic rights of the people, alleged the leaders of Telangana Civil Liberties Committee (CLC).
They said under the rule of NDA government, led by BJP, attacks on dalits and minority communities were on the raise across the nation. The BJP-RSS combine, and other Hindutva forces have been targeting those promoting secular and progressive ideology, the
The CLC state president Prof G Laxman, vice-president V Raghunath, general secretary N Narayan Rao, retired professor and noted writer Katyayani Vidmahe and others told presspersons here on Tuesday that there was an urgent need to fight against the Hindutva variety of communalism.
On the other hand, the BJP government under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has misplaced its orientation towards the rural and urban poor. Since he assumed the post, the PM has been nurturing policies that help the interests of super-rich and capitalists alone.
Similarly, the rights of Adivasis were being violated with draconian acts like Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) and Chhattisgarh Special Public Security Act. Confining the Delhi University professor Sai Baba behind bars in a jail in Chhattisgarh was height of BJP’s fascism, said Prof Laxman.
The life of middle-class in the country was thrown into doldrums with demonetisation, making digital transactions mandatory, GST regime and others. The much-claimed exercise of unearthing black money with demonetisation turned out to be a failure, Katyayani said.
Meanwhile, the CMs of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, N Chandrababu Naidu and K Chandrashekar Rao were neglecting the interests of the people in their respective states and have been supporting the Modi government, the CLC leaders complained.
The TRS government in Telangana, instead of implementing Land Acquisition Act 2013, has been forcibly acquiring land from farmers through the GO 123 without conducting gram sabhas and social impact assessment, they said.
In order to discuss the above issues and create awareness among the public on their rights, the CLC was conducting its first state convention at Sundaraiah Bhavan in Hyderabad on April 7 and 8.
Public and rights activists should turn up in large numbers at the convention, appealed Katyayani, the reception committee chairperson. The CLC leaders have released publicity pamphlets of the convention.
