What Did Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan (MLA of Kukatpally) say?

Dr. JP’s comments on 10th December, 2010 in the Legislative Assembly as well as at the Media Point outside the floor of the House regarding the issue of withdrawing police cases against youth and student agitators in Andhra Pradesh:

1. The central issue is not about a particular party or a few individuals; or about a particular region or a particular group or community or religion. It is all about:
  1. Upholding the Rule-of-Law and ensuring the safety and security of all citizens
  2. Protecting the human rights of all individuals
  3. Protecting the future of young, innocent youth and students involved in the recent events
2. He quoted William Gladstone (the well-known fmr. PM of Britain) on the central role of the government: ‘It is the duty of government to make it easy to do good/right and difficult to do evil/wrong.’

3. He actually argued that all cases against misled and innocent youth and students must be withdrawn, where there is no premeditated violence, arson, destruction of property and extortion in the name of agitations. This has to be done so as to protect the future of these young Indians. It is evident that only a few, hard-core anti-social elements have created trouble.

4. However, he also pointed out that this withdrawal of cases against the students has to be done by following due process - in a just, fair, firm and reasonable manner; and not in an arbitrary manner, serving the interests of a few individuals. Other cases involving premeditated violence, arson, destruction of property have to be handled through due process (including compounding), involving the courts.

5. For instance, Bihar, until 5-6 years ago was plagued by anti social elements, kidnappers, arsonists, politicians colluding with criminals, etc. Reportedly, over 50,000 such anti-social elements have been convicted during the past 5 years - through due process and upholding the rule of law. This was done by the Fast Track Courts established across the State that handled such cases and convicted 52,343 such criminals.

To reiterate, the State government has to lift the cases against the innocent youth who did not resort to premeditated violence, arson and destruction during the course of the recent agitations. The rest of the cases have to be handled through due process upholding the Rule of Law – in a fair, firm and just manner.


  1. Being a elected representative who has promised and took oath to protec the people and the law. If he knows about "Vaasulu" and "Black Mail" he has to come out open today right now and that will put an end to this story. All other things he said is ok, nothing wrong. If he has proof let him face the press with evidence of who is the black mailer... without that you will not only get mad in front of the press. Tomorrow you will not be able to go back to get votes. At the botoom of your heart JP ... if your comments about "udhyamalu" was right, in this situation I would think you are refering to both the TG movement and Samyka movement. If you are just refering to TG , your true colors point to a particular region favorism.

    "Udhyamalu lenide Deshaniki Swatantramu raledu, TG poratam guda oka swatantra poratam... people may have differences 1 may favour unity in diversity the other may have thought there has not been any progress and we would want to go back to our old ways and hence the movement. Udhyamalu nu bihar goondaism to poliste, Vijaywada goondaism ne, Rayalseema factionism ne denitho polustaru JP sir...

    IAS sadivi na neeku, memu chepetolama ..

  2. ^anonymous, udhyamala perutho evaru ela dochukuntunaro pillodini adigina cheptadu. Siggu sheram lekunda, pani pata lekunda, udhyamalu perutho janalu toruture chesedi kakunda evadu enta dochado chepuko anedaniki matelu ela vastayo. oka roju cooli chesi, koti rupayalu sampandichedi, yemm state lo janalu anta yedavallaga unara.

  3. Hyd businessmen ni extortion evaru chestunnaro TRS family ni adagandi, JP ni kadu. T state peru tho andhra businessmen ni target chesi, bedirinchi dabbulu ivvakapote properties destroy chestamani bedirinchindi evarino TRS family ni adagandi. KCR KTR evarini bedirinchaledu ante nammetollu evaru leru... madhu koda, gali janardhan, jagan tho paatu KCR family kuda one of the biggest extortion mafia in AP currently.

  4. I fully agree with JP. What JP said is withdrawing cases against extorsion in the name of agitation is not correct. TRS thinks that they are extorsionists and hence they are opposing JP. Gummadikayala dongalante bhujalu tadumukone vaaru TRS.
