Member of the Sub-Committee for Welfare of Scheduled Castes, constituted by the National Commission for Schedule Castes, V. Raghavendra Rao said desecration of Ambedkar statues was a barbarous crime and those who were involved in it should be booked under the anti-terror laws. After visiting the ILTD Junction and Dowleswaram quarry road, where statues of Ambedkar were desecrated a few months ago, Mr. Rao said he would recommend to Parliament to bring a new law to punish the accused. Former Mayor M.S. Chakravarti, SC leaders Korukonda Chiranjeevi, Talluri Vijayakumar, Rajendraprasad and others participated in this programme.
