Vijayawada: The Communist Party of India (CPI) State secretary, K Narayana, here on Friday demanded death for the accused in the death of Dalit woman in Tenali town. He said that the accused should be killed at the same place where they resorted to heinous crime. Speaking to the media here, Narayana said that there was no need to conduct an enquiry into the incident as everybody knew what had happened and who murdered the Dalit woman. He asked the government and the judiciary to stop inquiry into this incident and award death punishment to the accused forthwith. The accused would escape from the clutches of law if the enquiry id delayed for years, he said. He asserted that he would not go back on his demand of death to the culprits and felt that there was no need to delay death punishment to the accused. Stating that the incident occurred in the area represented by the Assembly Speaker, he regretted that it had exposed the law and order situation. One can expect the fate of women from other parts of the State, if women in Tenali have no security for their lives, he said. He demanded Home Minister Sabitha Indra Reddy to quit and prove her sincerity. He wanted to know how the Director General of Police (DGP) was saluting the Home Minister, who is facing criminal charges. He said that the tainted ministers were supporting Sabitha and advising her not to resign in order to save their Cabinet posts. He lamented that some politicians in the State have been visiting Jaganmohan Reddy in jail for party tickets. He said that political standards have deteriorated and politicians were starting their careers from jail. AIYF plans seminars The All India Youth Federation (AIYF) State president Navaneetam Sambasiva Rao here on Friday said that they would organise a State-level seminar on atrocities against women at Press Club in Basheerbagh at Hyderabad. The Communist Party India (CPI) State secretary K Narayana released the poster of the seminar at CR Library hall here on Friday. Speaking on the occasion, Sambasiva Rao said that atrocities against women were increasing day by day and the government had miserably failed to take control law and order in the State. He asked the government to change the relevant Acts immediately for controlling crime against women. He regretted that women in the State were afraid of coming out of their homes for fear attacks. He said that the government, voluntary organisations and political parties should play key role in building up confidence among women. He said that they would organise seminars across the State to build confidence among women and the AIYF would continue to fight against atrocities against women.
