Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan today demanded withdrawal of all charges against former Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu and his TDP colleagues and their immediate and unconditional release by the Maharashtra Government.

 

Dr. JP, who spoke to Chief Minister K. Rosaiah and Chief Secretary S. V. Prasad over phone, underlined the need for all parties to work for a political settlement of the dispute over Babli and other projects without rousing parochial passions on either side of the border. He called up Governor E. S. L. Narasimhan and requested him to take the initiative to get the problem resolved in consultation with the Government of India.

 

Dr. JP condemned forcible removal of agitators, who included legislators and Members of Parliament, to Aurangabad and demanded that they be treated with dignity, courtesy, and respect.
