With the whole section of politics itself being complicated, the gender bias is at its peak level in the ruling party of Telangana. Insults to women are not new under the TRS regime. This also applies to women leaders in their own party. Frequent outbursts are proof of that. Kottagudem Municipal Chairperson Kapu Seethalakshmi Boruna’s lament that her own party has recently insulted her has become a topic of discussion.
Getting into the details, Kottagudem MLA Vanama Venkateswara Rao organized a rally with black flags against the Center from Lakshmidevi Palli Market Yard to Ramapuram. Municipal chairperson Seethalakshmi was sitting in the back of his two-wheeler in this order. The councilor’s husband was coming on a bike behind the vehicle in which she was going. He repeatedly touched the chairperson with his bike and behaved like a mob. “Anna, please look and drive, the bike is almost touching me,” she said repeatedly.
Seethalakshmi was hit again and again with the same bike three times. With this, she fell off the bike at once. She was angry that her saree almost slipped due to the repeated collisions. She shed tears while saying that he behaved stubbornly with her despite her telling him of the trouble he was causing. The chairperson was all in tears while talking about the incident.
Chairperson Seethalakshmi had to go into a house in the middle of the bike rally to repair her saree. It was pretty clear that the councilor’s husband’s behavior regarding this was not acceptable. In this order, a dispute arose between the two factions. The police tried to convince her out of this dispute, but there was no use. Eventually, the MLA had to step in and take her home.
Seethalakshmi was all in tears after reaching home. She pleaded with Vanama Venkateswara Rao to suspend the accused from the party on immediate notice. She further wept talking about the lack of safety of women in the state despite being the public representatives. It has not even been days since the incident between MP Malothu Kavitha and MLA Shankar Nayak during a protest rally in Mahabubabad on Thursday, now, this issue is once again intensifying the extreme gender bias and harassment of women leaders in the ruling party.
