Dalit groups to rescue of Sreeramulu

Congress padayatra, illegal mining Aug. 4: Banners on the outskirts of
the city scream “Congress Go Back”, as the Congress leaders march on
relentlessly towards Bellary. If the strident note struck by
supporters of health minister B. Sreeramulu in the posters and banners
is any indication, the police may have its hands full on August 9,
when the Congress padyatra rolls into town.

A banner erected by a Dalit group, the Bellary district Scheduled
Castes and Scheduled Tribes Federation, at the entrance to the city,
clearly tells Congress leaders ‘go back.’ “Sreeramulu is the voice of
Dalits and Dalits are the echo of Sreeramulu. Congress leaders are
against Dalits’ progress and must turn back.

Do not dampen the enthusiasm of leaders who are committed to
developing Bellary, which is being seen and heard for the first time.
Do not instigate the peace-loving border district. Go back,” reads the
banner, raising fears that the Congress yatra could spark off unrest,
when it enters the city.

Mr Sreeramulu himself has already warned the Congress that if it
continued to portray him as a villain in street-plays enacted during
the padayatra, it would be inviting trouble.
