Uttam Kumar Reddy says TRS branding Dalit students ‘criminals’

TPCC chief N. Uttam Kumar Reddy has accused the TRS government of branding Dalits, ST, BC and minority students as “criminals”.

Mr Reddy, who met the students of University of Hyderabad who have been lodged at the Cherlapally jail here, along with party chief spokesperson D. Sravan and NSUI state president Venkat, flayed the government for mistreating students and faculty members when they protested against the return of P. Appa Rao as the Vice-Chancellor.

“Instead of sending Appa Rao, an accused in SC/ST Atrocities case, to jail, the state government has targeted innocent students who were protesting peacefully. They were lathicharged and brutally beaten up even in the police vans. This is highly intolerable,” he said.

Mr Reddy blamed the NDA government at the Centre and the TRS government in TS for the present unrest in the UoH.
