Condemning the attack on its president Jayaprakash Narayan at Andhra Pradesh Bhavan in New Delhi on Tuesday, the LSP on Wednesday demanded chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy to ensure that those guilty are arrested and punished.
In protest against the attack on Jayaprakash Narayan, LSP workers staged a dharna near Indira Park here on Wednesday. Addressing the party workers party state president Katari Srinivasa Rao demanded that stringent action be taken against police personnel who indulged in violence and abusive language against LSP workers observing a peaceful protest on Tuesday night.
Srinivasa Rao pointed out that his party has never indulged in double speak and all along maintained that the state cannot be kept either united or separated forcibly. Jayaprakash has the distinction of unveiling a comprehensive and amicable solution that takes care of the interests of all the regions in the state. Instead of appreciating him, some Telangana protagonists have chose to indulge in physical assault on him, he said. Earlier in the day, Srinivasa Rao and others met DGP B Prasada Rao and sought suspension of Saifabad CI Umender who indulged in physical and verbal violence against party workers.
