Home minister P Sabita Indra Reddy assured a delegation of the Telangana Student Joint Action Committee here on Saturday that cases registered against students for indulging in violence during the Telangana movement who were in the selection list for SI and constable posts will be withdrawn in five days.
Talking with reporters after submitting a memorandum to the minister at the Secretariat seeking withdrawal of cases, TSJAC leaders P Ravi and Rajaram Yadav said the minister told them that the names of those in the selection list and facing cases were being sorted out and the cases would be withdrawn within five days. The cases against others too would be withdrawn in due course, they said.
The memorandum urged the government to withdraw the cases filed against Telangana agitators, particularly students, during the statehood movement. The TSJAC leaders recalled that both the state and central Governments had given assurances that cases against students would be dropped. ''However no action has been taken till date. If cases are not dropped, students who applied for and are in the selection list for the posts of constables and SIs, may not get the jobs. Therefore, we urged the minister to withdraw cases immediately.''
