New Delhi, August 8: Andhra Pradesh Telugu Desam Party (TDP) National President N Chandrababu Naidu has praised the courage of Dalit woman Padma.
In tweets on Sunday, Naidu compared Padma with Pinathalli in the film ‘Jai Bheem’. He said that Padma was the ‘Nellore Pinathalli’ for her tireless fight to seek justice for the death of her husband Udaigiri Narayan.
Naidu wrote that Padma did not succumb to the threats and temptations given to him. Her 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 Podalkuru 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 compensating his family. Rather action should be taken against the accused. He said that the government should not downplay the Dalit massacre.
