The CPI(M) has stepped up the agitation in support of the Displaced Dalits of Devarapalli in Andhra Pradesh. CPI(M) Polit Bureau member Comrade B.V. Raghavulu visited the area and joined the agitation seeking justice for the Dalits.

He also led the cultivation of the land that had been allotted to the people. The land has been occupied by sections of people belonging to dominant caste groups, and the TDP government is silent on the entire issue.

The party is also mobilising funds for the Dalits to wage a legal battle to retrieve the 22 acres of land, the 40 Dalit families had been cultivating for decades.
