TDPs Varla Ramaiah writes to NHRC on Macherla incident, seeks probe

Amaravati: TDP politburo member Varla Ramaiah on Monday complained to the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) about the Macherla incident.

In a letter to the NHRC, Varla Ramaiah said the negligent attitude of the state police cost the state heavily and the law-and-order situation failed miserably. He alleged that the state police colluded with some ruling party leaders following which the human rights of the common man are at stake and the recent incidents that took place in Macherla are the best example of this.

Venkat Rami Reddy, the brother of local MLA Pinnelli Ramakrishna Reddy, resorted to onslaught on the public, particularly the activists of the major Opposition party, the TDP, with private goondas, Mr. Varla Ramaiah said in his letter to the NHRC. These goondas attacked women and even children in the houses of TDP activists, he alleged, adding that they even set ablaze their houses.

The hired goondas of the brother of the local MLA attacked the participants who were taking part in the peaceful rally of the TDP in-charge, Brahma Reddy, Mr. Ramaiah stated. The local police played only the role of an audience of the onslaught that continued for over six hours, he pointed out in the letter. Observing that even after the cordon and search operation conducted by the police, the YSRCP workers attacked the TDP activists with lethal weapons, Mr. Varla Ramaiah said in his letter and added that the local police took into custody the TDP leaders and issued an order that they should immediately leave Macherla.

Stating that some senior police officers are solely responsible for the local police acting in such a way, he said the additional director general of police (Intelligence), Seetharamjaneyulu, and the superintendent of police (SP), Ravishankar Reddy, were only trying to satisfy the ruling party leaders, resulting in the miserable failure of the law and order.

Mr. Varla Ramaiah, in his letter to the NHRC, sought a thorough probe to be conducted into the whole episode and see to it that those responsible for the incidents are punished. He also wanted action to be initiated against the police officers responsible for the failure of law and order.
