Statewide Bandh for Bhu Poratam turns violent

Hyderabad, July 28, 2007

The bandh call given on Saturday by Left parties turned violent at many places across the State especially claimed six lives leaving many injured in the police firing at Mudigonda. The agitation by Left parties for distribution of land to the landless poor took a tragic turn on Saturday as the police opened fire indiscriminately killing six persons and many agitators injured. The firing by the police came in for a sharp criticism from all quarters and set alarm bells at the Congress Headquarters in New Delhi.

The Left parties warned the State Government to stop repression and hold a meaningful negotiations to meet their genuine demands. The CPI politburo in a statement issued said that the government cannot suppress by such brutal display of forces as the demands are genuine. They urged the government to immediately concede all the genuine demands and also demanded firm action against the police officers responsible for the firing and payment of adequate compensation to those killed. The CPI affiliated All India Trade Union Congress demanded the arrest of the police and civil officers responsible and immediate release of all those arrested on the ongoing agitation.

Meanwhile, the Government has transferred the Warangal Superintendent of Police, RK Meena and also suspended the Additional Superintend of Police Ramesh Babu. The Government also ordered a judicial inquiry into the incident. However, it may be noted that the Congress party AP in charge Digvijay Singh defended the action of the police saying that they were left no alternative when the agitators turned violent. The Andhra Pradesh Human Rights Commission Chief took a serious view of the police firing that lead to the death of six agitators, Justice B Subhashan Reddy on Saturday directed the District Collectors to submit a report by August 1 in the incident.
