Hyderabad: Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) leader and SC Corporation Chairman Pidamarthi Ravi, on Thursday condemned the comments made by Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani that there was police rule in Telangana. He alleged that the MLA was an agent of the Congress party. The meeting with the IPS officer Praveen Kumar should not be seen in a political angle.
Addressing a press conference here at the Telangana Bhavan, Ravi said that there was democratic government in Telangana. “Jignesh Mevani is talking like a Congress agent. He had mortgaged the dalit movement to Congress party and now misleading the dalits in Telangana,” Ravi said. The weaker sections were aware about their rights in the State and do not need the support of Mevani, he added.
The TRS leader lashed out at Mevani stating that, he was an ‘Ambedkarist’ with a mask of a leftist. Mevani should understand communists and Ambedkar never came on same platform. “Dalit leaders like Mayawati and Kanshiram had formed political party of their own and came into power in Uttar Pradesh on four occasions.
Mevani, who is criticising Mayawati, will never have the support of dalits in the State,” said Ravi. He further alleged that after becoming MLA, Mevani took the blessings of Congress chief Rahul Gandhi but did not bother even to meet the dalit leaders. Ravi said that Mevani might not have an idea about KCR, who works for welfare of the dalits and about the situation in Telangana hence he was criticizing the government, he said.
