HYDERABAD: A day after the police remanded Congress leader Addanki Dayakar and other student leaders to Chanchalguda prison for their alleged involvement in the violence on Osmania University campus, TPCC chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy accused TRS government of implicating Osmania University students and leaders in false cases for staging protests against the suicide of OU student Murali Mudiraj.

Accompanied by MLAs T Jeevan Reddy, J Geetha Reddy, T Rammohan Reddy and others, Uttam Kumar Reddy met the students’ leaders at the central prison, Chanchalguda on Tuesday. Speaking to media later, Uttam Kumar Reddy alleged that nearly 40 students and their leaders were kept into illegal custody and then implicated in false cases by TRS government when they protested against the suicide of Murali Mudiraj. 

Stating that the Congress party would approach the High Court and Supreme Court against the illegal cases, he condemned Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao for his dictatorial behaviour.
Uttam Kumar Reddy said Murali Mudiraj, a BC student, committed suicide as he was disappointed over delay in getting a job. 

“It was TRS government’s failure to provide jobs to unemployed youth which forced Murali to end his life. Murali’s suicide reflects the level of disappointment prevailing among students and jobless youth. But Rao turned so arrogant that he did not even express his condolences over Murali’s suicide. Instead, he unleashed terror on students and turned Osmania University into a war zone.”

“Situation has turned so worse that the suicide note was allegedly fabricated to hush up the matter. The CM should be ashamed of themselves as they have booked students in serious offences like attempt to murder. Over 30 students have been put in jail at a time when OU exams are going on,” he said and demanded a judicial probe into the suicide of Murali.

Uttam Kumar Reddy also alleged that Rao is ruthlessly suppressing all kinds of protest by opposition parties, NGOs, students, JAC and others and implicating all his opponents in false cases. “Dalits were tortured and booked in false cases in Nerella while tribal farmers in Khammam were handcuffed after their arrest in a false case,” he said.
