By Apoorva Jayachandran , Abdul Basheer: Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Telangana Party (YSRTP) chief YS Sharmila sent a book on the Indian Constitution to CM K Chandrashekar Rao’s office and slammed him for failing to ensure justice for Dalits.
“It’s time he read this. The CM has been insulting Babasaheb and the Indian Constitution with his words and deeds. In Telangana, KCR’s constitution reigns supreme, where there is no freedom of speech and the right to protest. KCR’s constitution is all about corruption, nepotism, and fake promises. Dalits have been cheated and neglected,” Sharmila said, while paying tributes to Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar at Tank Bund.

“On this occasion, YSRTP is happy to gift a book on Indian Constitution to KCR. We hope it opens his eyes and compels him to respect and implement the Constitution,” added YS Sharmila.
Speaking about the unveiling of the tallest Ambedkar statue in Hyderabad, she said, “It took nine years for him to put up one statue of Ambedkar. He is doing it now because of the elections. We are not invited and I am not allowed to attend the programme even as a commoner.”
While speaking to India Today near the Liberty Circle in Hyderabad, she said, “KCR is a dictator and does not honour the Constitution.”

Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao unveiled the 125-ft bronze statue of BR Ambedkar in Hyderabad on Friday, to mark the 132nd birth anniversary of the architect of the Indian Constitution. The statue in Hyderabad is India’s tallest statue of Ambedkar.
The unveiling ceremony was held on a grand scale with arrangements in place to ensure that over 35,000 people from all 119 constituencies attend it.
