laederTenali: Several leaders called on the family members of Bethala Kantha Suneela, who lost her life in saving her daughter Mounika from a mob of drunken youth here on Monday night, and consoled them. They promised to get justice done to them and ensured all support. Parliament Member Rayapati Sambasiva Rao assured them that he would take the issue to the notice of Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy and get them speedy government relief. He also provided Rs 1 lakh for the education of Mounika. Later speaking to media persons, he demanded swift and strong punishment to the guilty. MRPS president Manda Krishna Madiga deplored that Dalits' safety was at stake across the country. He demanded a speedy trial of the accused so that punishment could be meted out to them within six months. He urged the government to make the SC/ST Atrocities Act more stringent so as to deter forward castes from committing offences against the Dalits. Manda Krishna flayed local MLA and Speaker Nadendla Manohar for not visiting the bereaved family and express his solidarity with the Dalits. He would risk being branded an anti-Dalit if he did not visit the family at the earliest, he said. Speaker was not keen on meeting Suneela family members, as the family of one of the accused were his close followers, Krishna alleged. YSRCP leader Jupudi Prabhakar said the Dalit people would keep tabs on the case and would not brook any political interference to protect any of the accused. He said that though three Ministers hailed from the district, none of them thought it fit to condemn the heinous act of the accused. He regretted that none of the onlookers dared save the mother-daughter duo from the clutches of the drunken mob.
