Hyderabad: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) Chief Spokesperson Dr. Sravan Dasoju has strongly condemned the arrest of revolutionary writer Varavara Rao and other civil right activists.
In a media statement, Sravan described their arrest as illegal. He said it was highly condemnable that Modi Government was targetting those who are pointing out the flaws in government policies and decisions and fighting for the rights of weaker sections.
He said both Prime Minister Narender Modi and Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao have become habitual of suppressing the voices which question the performance of their governments.
He said accusing 77-year-old Varavara Rao, a poet and writer, of hatching a conspiracy to assassinate PM Modi clearly shows the inefficiency of law enforcing agencies and the government.
Sravan demanded a high-level probe into the arrest of Sudha Bharadwaj, Gautam Navlakha, Arun Ferreira, Vernon Gonsalves, P Varavara Rao and other civil rights activists.
