Telugu Desam MPs petition LS Speaker

Special Correspondent

Complain about Maharashtra police ‘ill-treatment'


‘All we wanted to see was Babli and 13 other projects being constructed by Maharashtra'

TDPP leader urges Speaker to refer the matter to the Privileges Committee


HYDERABAD: Telugu Desam MPs on Monday met Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar in Delhi and complained to her about the “inhuman treatment” meted out to them by the Maharashtra police in Dharmabad in Nanded district recently.

Humiliating experience

Nama Nageswara Rao, Telugu Desam Parliamentary Party leader, told Mrs. Kumar that they had not come across a situation where Members of Parlilament, MLAs and MLCs had to go through such humiliating experiences at the hands of the police.

They were lathicharged indiscriminately when they were in judicial custody and having breakfast, Mr Rao told the Speaker.

They had not committed any crime by entering Maharashtra and all they wanted to see was Babli and other 13 projects being constructed illegally by that State, he added.

Shows lathi blows

Mr. Nageswara Rao showed the lathi blows he received on his shoulder and appealed to her to refer the matter to the Privileges Committee. Party sources said on the MP's request, the Speaker sent their appeal to the committee.

Meanwhile, Telugu Yuvatha members staged a dharna in front of AP Bhavan in Delhi protesting against the Maharashtra police's action. They held a huge banner, asking Prime Minister Manmohan Singh whether people's representatives of TDP had no right to visit Babli and other projects in Maharashtra.
