He said when their repeated appeals to then Chief Minister Dr Y S Rajasekhara Reddy on the allotment of house-sites to them evoked no response, the ex-servicemen and their widows went in a procession towards the Assembly to bring the issues to government’s notice once again, the protestors were arrested and sent to jail at the instance of the YSR government. Cases were registered against them.
Ammika Rangaiah Goud has appealed to the Messaiah of Poor and Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao to direct the authorities concerned to withdraw the criminal cases foisted against the ex-servicemen and hand over the allotted house-sites. He also appealed to the Chief Minister to sanction double bedroom houses to the parents and widows of soldiers who laid down their lives on the battle front. (NSS)
