Vijayawada: Protests echoed in Vijayawada over the racial killing of Kuchibotla Srinivas in the United States of America. The CPM activists burnt the effigy of US President Donald Trump on MG Road on Saturday. They alleged that Mr Trump’s policies were instigating racial and communal violence. CPM state secretary P. Madhu said that Mr Trump has spoilt the environment even before he came to power during election campaign.
With Mr Trump as President, there will be no safety for Indians in the USA he opined. Mr Madhu demanded that the union government take a strong view over the racial attacks and killing of the Telugu engineer. He observed that more than 200 incidents of racial attacks are taking place in the USA everyday.
The union government should cancel the nuclear deal and should take measures to ensure safety of Indians in the USA, he said.
USA has developed with the physical and intellectual labour of Indians and now the American government is throwing the Indians out after using them for decades, said CPM capital region coordinator CH. Babu Rao.
Meanwhile, the Telugu Desam official spokesperson Bonda Uma Mahe-swar Rao also took out a protest rally and participated in a human chain at BRTS Road. While condemning the ghastly attack, he said America was a country of immigrants and President Trump himself came from an immigrant’s family. It is very sad that the USA President himself is encouraging racism. He appealed to Telugus living in the USA to be careful, as America is not a free country anymore. He also appealed to the youth who are planning to go to the USA to wait for sometime, as the conditions were not conductive.
