Representatives of several organisations representing the interests of people from different walks of life, including Dalits and other weaker sections, will meet at the Sundaraiah Vignana Kendra between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Thursday to discuss their future course of action to register their protest against the verdict of the High Court of Andhra Pradesh, acquitting the accused in the Tsundur carnage of 1991.
A few dozens of representatives of different organisations on Wednesday staged a peaceful protest at the statue of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar on Wednesday, demanding justice. Prominent among those present were Vara Vara Rao of the Revolutionary Writers Association, M. Anjaneyulu, Director of the Centre for Dalit Studies, M. Veda Kumar of the Telangana Praja Front President and State general secretary of the Committee Against Caste Discrimination, John Wesley.
They regretted that the line ‘Justice delayed is justice denied’ appeared to be proved correct. Mr. Anjaneyulu rued that it was 23 years since the gruesome incident took place and that justice still eluded the victims’ families.
On Thursday, they would meet to firm up their future course of action, which included petitioning Governor E.S.L. Narasimhan to see that Government went in appeal to the Supreme Court, apart from meeting the Chief Justice of India, Justice P. Sathasivam and Chief Justice of Andhra Pradesh, Justice Kalyanjyoti Sengupta. “We will also move the Supreme Court in our appeal, separately,” he said.
