The Madiga Chalawadi Meesalati Horata Samiti, Madiga Dandora and the Karnataka Dalit Sangharsh Samiti have condemned the lathi-charge on members of the Madiga Meesalati Horata Samiti in Belgaum on Tuesday.

Members of the three organisations took out a procession here on Thursday, protesting against the lathi-charge. They staged a demonstration outside the Deputy Commissioner’s office and submitted a memorandum to the district authorities, seeking a judicial inquiry into the lathi-charge and suspension of the police officials responsible for ordering the action.
