The Samaikyandhra agitation casts a shadow over the prospects of Bavireddy Rakesh, son of a deceased Head Constable Sivanageswara Rao from Vatluru on the city outskirts, getting a government job on compassionate grounds. The related file is pending clearance at the Collectorate for more than two months due to paralysation of the administration in the wake of boycott of duties by the NGOs for the cause of Samaikyandhra. His plight moved Superintendent of Police M. Ramesh at a get-together programme with the families of deceased police personnel here on Monday.
The SP promised to write to Collector Siddharth Jain with a request to process the file at the earliest.
Sivanageswara Rao, father of Rakesh and Head Constable attached to Jeelugumilli police station, died of ill health in February last. With his untimely death, his three-member family lost the bread-winner. Rakesh applied for job on compassionate grounds in April. When the file reached the Collectorate by passing through the SP’s office after due inquiry by the Special Branch police, the code of conduct which was in force in view of the gram panchayat elections, blocked it initially for nearly a month. Later, it failed to inch ahead for another two months due to the Samaikyandhra agitation. Rakesh urged the SP to use his good offices with the Collectorate and ensure clearance of the file at the earliest, keeping in mind his family conditions.
Plea to SP
Bollampalli Manoja, daughter of a constable B.S.N. Rao attached to Penugonda police station who died a few months ago, told the SP that she had to defer her plans for job application because of the agitation.
According to the DSP (Armed Reserve), 18 members from the families of deceased police personnel turned up for a breakfast with the SP followed by a get-together, as is the practice during the Police Commemoration Week every year.
The armed forces conducted a parade and offered a guard of honour while observing a two-minute silence in commemoration of the police martyrs who laid down their lives for the cause of peace and tranquillity in the society.
His appointment on compassionate grounds is getting delayed due to Samaikyandhra agitation
