HYDERABAD: Days after saying he is not scared of those threatening him, author and intellectual Kancha Ilaiah Shepherd on Friday proposed to make the necessary changes in his book, Samajika Smugglurlu Komatollu, on Arya Vysya community, albeit with a rider that the changes as suggested by the community must be endorsed by the CPI and CPIM. He also asked the community to provide employment to those from ST, ST and BC and help to improve their socio-economic standing. 


Stating that “they lend Rs 100 and collect Rs 150 later”, he also accused the Arya Vysya community of being pawn-brokers and running non-institutional financial firms that fleece poor and farmers, eventually forcing them to commit suicide.“I will change the book name to Samijaka Sarvarlu Vysyulu Ani Marusthaanu, if they help the victims. I write only to sensationalise and highlight such issues. This attempt is to change the society. I am an intellectual and I this is the work I do,” said the political scientist and activist.
