TPCC Prez Uttam Kumar Reddy’s Open Letter To KCR:- TPCC Prez Uttam Kumar Reddy has written an open letter to TS CM K. Chandrasekhar Rao on Monday. In his letter to KCR, Reddy alleged that during the three-and-a-half year rule of TRS, the atrocities on the Dalits and tribals were on rise.

The letter of Mr. Reddy comes in wake after he visited a hospital in Secunderabad to meet the two Dalit youth who had attempted suicide in Manakondur constituency of Karimnagar district on Sunday. The leaders of Opposition K. Jana Reddy (Assembly) and Shabbir Ali (Council), former PCC presidents V. Hanumantha Rao and Ponnala Lakshmaiah and other leaders, were seen accompanying him.

The incident highlighted the rising discontent among the people, especially Dalits and Girijans, against the TRS government’s failure to fulfill electoral promises, wrote Mr. Reddy. Moreover, a fact sheet was given by Reddy to show that under the TRS regime, TS has emerged as an “anti-Dalit and anti-Girijan state”. Quoting information procured through an RTI query, he said that around 1,592 cases had been registered under the SC, ST Atrocities (Prevention) Act across the state, from June 2014 to December 2016.

About 503 Dalits and Girijan women were raped while 120 people belonging to the SC and ST communities were murdered. A total of 5,210 SCs and STs fell victim to crimes, up to December 2016. The situation was alarming and required immediate action, said Reddy. In the last three years, more than 3,500 farmers who committed suicide, a majority belonged to the SC or ST communities, alleged Reddy. The dalits had fallen victim to the brutality of police, which was acting like a TRS frontal organization, said Mr. Reddy.

Over a dozen cases were listed out by Reddy, where SCs and STs were allegedly subjected to atrocities and no action was taken by the government.
