HYDERABAD: Accusing the government of failure to arrest those responsible for damaging the statues of Ambedkar in East Godavari district, Dalit leaders and students have demanded a comprehensive inquiry into the incident for facts to come out.

They called upon people to make the proposed state bandh on January 30 a success. A delegation led by balladeer Gadar met chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy at the Secretariat on Friday and urged him to take necessary steps to prevent recurrence of such incidents. There was a need to provide protection to the statues of great Indian leaders, they said.

Talking to newsmen later, Gadar said a round table would be held at Sundarayya Vignana Kendram at Baghlingampally on Sunday to finalise a programme to prevent attacks on the statues of Ambedkar. Leaders of various political parties have been invited to the conference.  Professor Kancha Ilaiah and several students of Osmania University also demanded protection of Ambedkar statues.
