The arrest of Lok Satta, TDP, and other party leaders on a visit to the Babli project by the Maharashtra police is reprehensible, said the Lok Satta Party here today. Lok Satta Party General Secretary G. Raja Reddy and Nizamabad Lok Satta district unit President Dr. M. Rami Reddy were among the arrested.

 

Lok Satta Party General Secretary Katari Srinivasa Rao said in a media statement that arrest of leaders on a peaceful, fact-finding mission is unwarranted and unconstitutional. It merely lends credence to the view that the Maharashtra Government would like to prevent its irregularities from coming to light.

 

The Lok Satta Party demanded that the Union Government shed its complacency, intervene immediately and facilitate a political solution to inter-State water disputes keeping national interests in mind.
