WARANGAL: Accusing Congress of giving political colour to the torture of eight youth from Nerella village in Rajanna-Sircilla district, TRS said Congress is using the incident to defame Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao and IT minister KT Rama Rao for political mileage.

Speaking to reporters here on Monday, MP P Dayakar, MLA T Rajaiah and TRS Warangal district president T Ravinder Rao said Congress is unnecessarily fueling the Nerella incident by organising public meeting and rallies. “The drama is to defame the CM and his son. Congress is trying to give caste colour to the entire incident and project KCR as anti-Dalit. We request them to stop this negative campaign and give constructive suggestions to the government,” Rajaiah said. Refuting the allegation that government is trying to save the police involved in the incident, he said government is not saving anyone but trying to present facts in front of people.

“As far as our knowledge goes, police have not used third degree against the arrested youth. They might have been subjected to mild physical punishment during interrogation which happens during questioning in every case,” he said. Ravinder Rao said during Congress rule Dalits were subjected to a lot of atrocities and now one incident has taken place and Congress is make hue and cry. “Congress has no moral right to raise the issue of Dalits as they neglected them during their regime,” he said.
