Telangana Democratic Front denied permission to hold rally

NewsGram Staff Writer

Hyderabad:  Hyderabad police rejected the application by Telangana Democratic Front (TDF) to organize a rally “chalo assembly” on Wednesday on grounds that the Maoists may participate and indulge in violence. Police further said, TDP, an umbrella of several mass organisations, was formed and the call for the march was given at the instance of banned Communist Party of India-Maoist. TDF is protesting the killings of two Maoists Shruthi and Vidyasagar who were killed near Medaram of Warangal district on September 16.

The march was slated to kick off from Sundaraiah Park to the assembly building to condemn the killings of two Maoists by the police in “staged-managed” gunfight.

It was the first case after the formation of separate Telangana state last year.

A total of 370 organisations including 10 left parties and the groups which fought for separate Telangana state, have accumulated banner of TDF to denounce the killings. The group which also include revolutionary writer Varavara

Rao and intellectuals like Haragopal, Chuka Ramaiah and Kodandaram alleged that Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government has deviated from its pledge that no staged killings will take place in the state.

The TDF headed by Chada Venkat Reddy, state secretary of Communist Party of India (CPI), is demanding probe by a sitting judge into the killings.

Alleging that the woman Maoist was raped before being shot dead, it demanded that cases be filed under Nirbhaya Act on the perpetrators.

While denying permission for ‘chalo assembly’, Deputy Commissioner of Police VB Kamalasan Reddy said in his orders that it is reliably learnt that TDF was formed at the instance of CPI-Maoist and this program is being organised in support of the furtherance of its cause and ideology.

Mentioning  that CPI-Maoist and all its formations and front organizations were banned and declared as terrorist organisations by the Indian government, Reddy expressed the apprehension that open cadres, supporters, sympathisers and activists of all mass organisations of CPI-Maoist from Telangana, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and Andhra-Orissa border will infiltrate into Hyderabad in large numbers and indulge in subversive activities.
