Ahead of the scheduled 'Silent Protest' of Andhra Pradesh youth on 26th January at RK beach in Vizag, DGP Sambasiva Rao has announced clear order that police support would not be given for movements born on social media. It is well-known that motivated by the Jallikattu movement in Tamil Nadu, AP youth sans political parties, have chosen to silently protest at the RK beach in Vizag on the eve of Republic Day. Although the mainstream print media didn't support this idea, the social media wave took it to so high that even several film celebs have shown their support and some even offered to take part in the protest. Addressing the media, AP DGP has now made it clear that "no one has sought official permission for this protest and even if someone does now, it can't be provided in such short notice." "We have no issues with peaceful protests but anti-social elements often prey upon these kinds of mass movements to spread terror in society. This protest has been invited by some enthusiastic people on social media and no one has come forward to take the responsibility if some disturbance occurs," added the DGP. "People have the right to take part in peaceful movements and we respect it. But, 'Law and Order' is our priority. There is no official permission for any sort of protest on Jan 26," he reiterated. On the other hand, those preparing up for protest are calling for Article 191b of the Indian constitution, which states - 'Citizens can protest peacefully without arms'.
