New Delhi, August 08: Andhra Pradesh’s Telugu Desam Party (TDP) national president N Chandrababu Naidu lauded the courage of Dalit woman Padma.
In tweets on Sunday, Naidu compared Padma to Pinathalli in the film ‘Jai Bheem’. He said that Padma was ‘Nellore Pinathalli’ for her tireless fight to demand justice for the death of her husband Udayagiri Narayan.
Naidu wrote that Padma did not succumb to the intimidation and temptation given to her. His fight reminds me of Pinathalli in the movie Jai Bheem. His fight for justice is an inspiration to all.
The TDP chief said that Padma is fighting against the system and the government demanding punishment for the culprits. She was blaming Podalakuru SI Karimulla for her husband’s death.
The Andhra Pradesh government was forced to act as the National Commission for Scheduled Castes launched an inquiry. The government should not close the matter by giving compensation to his family. Instead, action should be taken against the culprits. He said that the government should not reduce the Dalit massacre.
