Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan did not oppose withdrawal of cases against students, Lok Satta Party Working President D. V. V. S. Varma clarified in a media statement.

 

Taking exception to attempts at distorting Dr. JP’s stand, Mr. Varma pointed out that Dr. JP had in fact argued for withdrawal of all cases where there is no premeditated violence, arson, destruction of property and extortion in the name of agitations.

 

Dr. JP wanted the Government to withdraw the cases by following due process - in a just, fair, firm, and reasonable manner. Mr. Varma said that withdrawal of cases involved students and youth belonging to all regions. Injecting a regional angle into Dr. JP’s statement is unwarranted.

 

Instigating attacks on Lok Satta offices and holding out threats against its leaders touring in Telangana are patently undemocratic and fascist, and deserve to be condemned by all democrats, Mr. Varma said.
