Maujpur anti CAA Violence

New Delhi : Demanding justice for the people who have allegedly been framed by the police for the riots in north-east Delhi in February this year, Jamiat Ulema-i-Hind (JUH) president Maulana Syed Arshad Madani said on Friday that the district administration should be held accountable for the riots.

“It is not possible to control riots in the country without making the district administration accountable,” Madani said.

He further said that for the last 70 years, JUH has been demanding a strict law against violence, atrocities and riots based on religion in which the district administration should be held accountable.

The JUH is also fighting cases for people accused in Delhi riots which occurred in February this year. It is fighting the cases of hundreds of Muslims accused in Delhi riots, and legal efforts are being made for releasing the accused on bail.

Madani said, “We want justice for those who have been forcibly imprisoned in Delhi riots, and they should be released with dignity.”

He said that all the facts about the Delhi riots have come to light in some of the leading English newspapers, how the conspiracy was hatched, who were involved and how the riots were planned to target and destroy the members of a particular community.

Unfortunately, Delhi Police, in the name of investigation, prosecuted those who were the real victims of the riots, he claimed.

“In the last two days, the Karkarduma Sessions Court has granted conditional bail to accused Shadab Ahmed, Rashid Saifi, Shah Alam, Mohammad Abid, Arshad Qayyum and Shah Alam. So far, 16 bail petitions have been accepted by the Delhi High Court and the Sessions Court which were moved by the Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind,” said a statement issued by JUH.

Leaders of employees’ unions on Friday submitted a consent letter to Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao in this regard on Friday. The employees, through their one day salary, will be donating Rs 33 crore.

Telangana’s gazetted officers, non-gazetted officers, class IV employees and drivers will be donating one day salary.

The Asian Institute of Gastroenterology has also donated Rs 50 lakh for flood relief measures. Hospital MD, Dr Nageshwar Reddy said that the financial assistance is extended to support measures taken by the government for the relief and rehabilitation of the people in affected areas.

Meanwhile, the Chief Minister directed the officials concerned to complete the relief and rehabilitation measures in flood-hit areas of Hyderabad on a war footing. He reviewed the relief and rehabilitation measures taking place in the city.

KCR, as Rao is popularly known, said that due to the heavy rains and floods, water entered into the houses and damaged everything including the essential commodities.

“People were not in a position to even cook their meal. Hence we have decided to extend Rs 10,000 each family as an immediate financial assistance to them. This programme should be done actively. If the poor get this assistance before the festival it will be good for them. Ensure that every day one lakh people get this assistance,” he told the officials

Southern Power Distribution Company Ltd (SPDCL) CMD Raghuma Reddy informed the Chief Minister that due to heavy rains and floods, 33/11 KV Sub Stations were damaged at 15 places but all of them have been repaired and restored.

“At 1,080 places, 11 KV feeders were damaged and we have also restored them. 1,215 transformers were damaged in Greater Hyderabad. We have repaired and restored 1,207. The remaining eight transformers could not be repaired as they were submerged in water,” he said.

The officials said due to floods in Musi River, 1,145 transformers of the farm sector in the rural areas were damaged and 386 of them were repaired. Of this, 586 transformers were submerged in Musi water in Nalgonda, Bhongir, and Suryapet.

The heavy rains and floods also damaged 1,299 electric poles in Greater Hyderabad and all of them were repaired. Due to Musi floods, 5,335 poles were damaged in the rural areas and of this, 3,249 poles were repaired.

Since it is dangerous to restore power supply to the areas submerged in water, the Chief Minister instructed the officials to restore power to the places after draining out the water.

Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar, Principal Secretary (MAUD) Arvind Kumar, GHMC Commissioner Lokesh Kumar, MAUD Commissioner Satyanarayana Reddy, Water Works ED Satyanarayana and other officials participated in the meeting.
