Attack on Arvind Dharmapuri:  Parliamentary Committee issues notice to TS CS, others

Hyderabad: Parliamentary Privilege and Ethics Committee has issued a notice to Telangana Chief Secretary, Home Secretary, and other officials on a complaint by BJP MP from Nizamabad, Arvind Dharmapuri about the alleged attack on him at Armoor on January 25.

According to the MP, the Committee has asked the Chief Secretary, Principal Secretary, Home, Director General of Police, Nizamabad Police Commissioner, Nizamabad District Collector, and others to find out the facts and submit it to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla within 15 days.

Privilege Committee issued notice on a letter written by the MP to the Speaker. MP had lodged a complaint against the officials for allegedly causing obstruction in his parliamentary functions and conniving with anti-social elements causing grievous harm and injury.

Dharmapuri's car and a few other vehicles in his convoy were damaged in the attack on January 25 at Armoor in Nizamabad district. He had blamed ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) for the attack.

He alleged that TRS workers carried out the attack on his convoy with the support of police. He alleged that the attackers armed with knives, sticks, and stones wanted to kill him.

TRS leaders, however, claimed that farmers attacked the MP as he had failed to fulfill promises made to them before his election. The incident had occurred near Issapalli village when the MP was on his way to Nandipet village to participate in some development programmes.
