Are people’s lives inferior to that of CM’s pet dog?: Vijayashanti

Hyderabad: TPCC campaign committee
chairperson Vijayashanti has expressed her dismay at the filing of a case against a veterinary doctor, holding him responsible for the death of a pet dog in Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s camp office, at a time when the State health authorities are not paying attention to the deaths of several people due to viral fevers.

In a statement here on Saturday, she said that the value of people’s lives in the State was inferior to that of a pet dog in the CM’s camp office. She pointed out that there was no action against officials of the Health Department for failing to take precautionary measures and against Globarena Technologies, whose irregularities in valuation of Intermediate Public Exam answer scripts led to scores of
students committing suicide.

However, the death of a pet dog of the Chief Minister, called ‘Husky’ due to fever,
invited the wrath of the rulers that resulted in filing of cases against Dr Ranjit, who treated the dog, under Section 429 (sub-section 11(4)) of the IPC and under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act.
