The Association of Kakatiya University Teachers (AKUT) has strongly condemned the comments made by Congress leader Renuka Chowdhary on the suicides committed for the cause of Telangana.

AKUT president G. Damodar said that precious and promising lives had been sacrificed by healthy persons starting from Srikanthachari to Yadaiah with suicide notes that moved even Sonia Gandhi, a non-Telanganite.

As a mother from Khammam, could she not understand the untold misery and umbilical suffering of the mothers who had lost their beloved children?

Her unkind words had indeed pierced the aching hearts of hundreds of bereaved families, he said. Instead of igniting the wrath of Telangana people by making irresponsible comments, she should spend her energy in convincing the Congress party leadership about the dire necessity to form Telangana State at the earliest, he said.

AKUT demanded that she withdraw her comments and render an apology immediately.

Karimnagar Staff Reporter adds: Karimnagar MP Ponnam Prabhakar has condemned the alleged remarks made by Congress spokesperson Renuka Chowdhary against the suicides of several youth for the cause of a separate Telangana State.

‘Withdraw statement’

Talking to newsmen here on Wednesday, he demanded that Renuka Chowdhary withdraw her statements unconditionally for hurting the feelings and sentiments of the bereaved family members of several youth who had committed suicide for Telangana. “If she (Renuka) has human values and respect for the departed souls, she should withdraw her statements immediately,” he pointed out.

Stating that he would take the matter to the notice of the party high command and demand disciplinary action against Renuka, he said that her statement had hurt the feelings of the entire Telangana region and statehood movement.
