SANGAREDDY: Oustees of the proposed Mallanna Sagar project gathered in large numbers for Bacchali Narsaiah’s cremation, who tried to commit suicide two days ago and died while undergoing treatment on Thursday.

The post mortem was conducted in the evening, and the body was handed over to the relatives by 10 pm. People from Erravelli, Singaram, Vemulaghat and other villages came in large numbers.

Earlier, former deputy chief minister Damodar Rajanarsimha, DCC president V Sunita Reddy comforted Narsaiah’s wife and daughter. Sounding defiant, Damodar vowed to continue the protest till the construction work of Mallanna Sagar is stopped and affirmed that he would be with the protesters till the end.

Even experts had opined that the project cannot be constructed on the canal, he said, adding the government is turning a blind eye to their suggestions. CPM district secretary Rajaiah too seconded Damodar’s opinion. DCC president Sunita Reddy demanded the government to come to the rescue of Narsaiah’s kin.

Mallanna Sagar Porata Samithi (MSPS) convener Bhasker said the government should do a rethink on the project.

 CPM district committee took a procession with the government’s effigy, and later burnt it in Vemulaghat on Friday, protesting the state’s stance.

The activists demanded to stop the forceful land acquisition in Thoguta and Kondapak mandals, and sought the suspension of Thoguta tahsildar Desha Naik. Meanwhile, the oustees are gearing up for a ‘Chalo Hyderabad’ at Indira Park in Hyderabad on July 26.
