Cases against Paritala may be reopened

By Our Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD, SEPT. 28 . The State Government may refer the withdrawal of pending criminal cases against Paritala Ravindra, Penukonda MLA from the TDP, effected by the previous Government, to the Law Department for reopening the cases.

Disclosing this at a press conference, the Chief Whip, N.Kiran Kumar Reddy, along with MLAs, M.Narayana Rao, T.Jeevan Reddy and K.Parthasarathy, and the PCC Legal Cell secretary, B.Purushottam Reddy, said here on Tuesday that the erstwhile regime had shielded several persons including Mr.Ravindra.

Copies of GO released

Releasing the copies of a GO of the Home Department dated November 26, 1996 to the media, they said the former Chief Minister, N.Chandrababu Naidu, had withdrawn cases booked against Mr.Ravindra under several sections including that of Homicide and Arms Act (Cr.No.114/83).

They alleged that the TDP Government had connived with criminals and encouraged faction violence, neglecting governance and ending in the suicide of more than 4,000 farmers. It was all the more strange that Mr.Naidu who had never bothered to respect the recommendations of the NHRC on the suicides during his rule was rushing to the NHRC now over the personal feuds in Anantapur, they said.

`Respect norms'

Asking Mr.Naidu "not to cross the limits," they told him to cultivate respect for democratic norms instead of seeking the resignation of a duly elected Chief Minister. Mr. Naidu could as well produce a film (with reference to TDP plans to do so) on the faction violence in Rayalaseema highlighting his contribution to it, they said.
