Former minister, Ravela Kishore Babu began a token hunger strike today, in front of Guntur Collector's office, demanding revoking Supreme Court (SC) ruling in Scheduled Castes (SC), Scheduled Tribes (ST) Act, that was proving harmful for the Dalits. Also, he is demanding that it should be included in the Ninth Schedule. Ravela Kishore Babu's supporters as well as Dalits from various other districts are reaching the hunger strike camp and expressing their solidarity. Dalits and Backward Classes are insecure due to the weakening of the Act, Ravela said.
