Addressing a virtual press conference, Uttam alleged that the TRS government had unleashed terror against Dalits across the State.
Referring to the incident of suicide by B Narasimhulu in Gajwel, Uttam said, “Dalit farmer Narasimhulu had recorded a selfie video before consuming poison, explaining the reason that forced him to take the extreme step. He had named the local MRO, VRO, sarpanch and other TRS leaders in the video. A case must be booked against them for abetment to suicide.”
