Kakinada, Apr 25 (UNI) Two Dalits today launched a three-day hunger strike in front of the Collectorate here, seeking suspension of the MRO, RI and Village assistant for their ''failure in protecting their lands from the landlords'' despite the Collector's clear cut instructions.
Talking to newspersons here, Satyavati and Velagapalli Anthony, both residents of Balabhadrapuram village in Biccavolu mandal, alleged that the lower rung revenue staff were hand in glove with the landlords in usurping their lands.
While followers of local landlords have occupied the five-cent site of Satyavati and put up huts, the landlords have forcibly dug a field channel and formed embankment on either side, covering Anthony's one-acre fertile agricultural land. They alleged that lower rung revenue staff did not comply with the Collector's orders on restoration of the lands to them.
