Guntur: As a part of their four-day tour in the violence-prone areas in Guntur district, the delegation of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) visited trouble-torn Palnadu region on Tuesday. Upon the complaint lodged by a TDP delegation last week, NHRC chairman Justice HL Dattu appointed the committee to visit the villages to interact with the locals about the prevailing issues. As the first day of their tour, the team members Arun Kumar, Lal Bahar, Mukhesh and Mallaiah visited Ponugupadu village where a wall was built across the road due to the political rivalry and violence.
On their visit, the team received a compliant from TDP leader Galla Jayadev that the ruling party is misusing the government machinery for the party works. He also stated that the Opposition leaders are being implicated in false cases which were non-bailable. Guntur (Rural) SP Ch Vijaya Rao and south coastal zone (Guntur) IGP Vineeth Brijlal welcomed the members of NHRC delegation who also visited Punugupadu, Jangameswarapadu, Atmakur and Pinnelli villages to study the law and order situation.

Violation of Human Rights, as a form of political vendetta by YCP Govt, is a new trend that is threatening #democracy, & needs to be stopped. pic.twitter.com/5IBXX8vTFv
